@jz: Just because we can say something doesn't necessarily mean we should. In this case, dealing in hyperboles does us no good whatsoever. Freak out once things actually go downhill, but flailing around before anything has actually happened only makes us look silly.
Change is a part of life. If Patrick taking a different role leads to Giant Bomb falling apart, so be it, but until we actually start seeing that happen, I'm more inclined to believe in the capabilities of the crew over just bailing overboard before there's even water in the boat. So, just calm down. It's happening. You and I can do nothing about it. And no matter how it turns out, we'll face it when it actually happens.
