Seems more like he's saying the DM is playing when he moderates, and the Ref needs to be coddled and loved back. He's advocating that Refs are part of the team, all cheer. In no way is he suggesting any less devotion of time or any aspect of using a randomizer. He's telling the faithful that they persevere as DMs and are special for their misery. He admits he's bored when he starts the vid; other interests call. That the players (wink, wink) are undeserving when excitement wanes, that it's great when they are arguing and deciding what to do next. The Bishop isn't about to suggest the DM is truly meaningless or less is more. Or asking why players are confused and lack direction, when the Ref has no clue himself except arrows went up to three copper a pop.
His game sessions would be a period of misery for me. His lower teeth have tobacco stains? He needs to lose weight. His hairline shows vitamin deficiency. In the words of the villain from Futureman when he was a wee lad, "I see dead people."
Worth a Thesis 95? Nope, I don't got time for that. Tried and discarded. I also feel the gap in The Bishop's broadcasts can be attributed to his desire to be an author or scriptwriter and is struggling for which trait of bugbear his literary story's plot will turn upon.
