Michael Muhney
weighed in his thoughts of Eric Braeden being written out of The Young and The Restless via Twitter. Muhney tweeted,

Not sure what's going on. None of my business. But I will say, Mr. Braeden & the Victor character are legendary and will never be replaced.

That may be true but he's still not above getting the boot.

Chapter Seasons! Look I like EB and Victor is my DUDE but he needs to take one for the team. What makes him exempt?

Personally, I think that MM hopes that fans won't in some way blame him, if indeed Adam is the one chosen to further the Newman feud and family. The best defense is a good offense.

I am on the fence here. I love EB as VN, and I think it is completely reasonable to be willing to accept a paycut at the end of the contract. I know that the contracting process has always been in favor of TPTB, however wherever the employee can get leverage, I am all for it. Plus, I find it hard to believe that they can't wait until next year to renegotiate, when they are hiring new actors (sometimes under contract), all the time. Further, they are looking for a big name for this "Tucker" character...which won't come cheap. As any business manager, they should budget and plan ahead. If EB is willing to take a cut at the end of the contract, then they should manage budgets and costs until then. They seem to be so willing to have plot based writing right now, this won't be any different.

While MM is busy tweeting about how important Victor and Braeden is, he better hope they don't fire him to free up some of that money for the irreplaceable Braeden.

I hope the big name they are getting for Tucker is someone good. But while they are doing all this, can they please get on with finding Devon's daddy? What happened to that storyline? Also since they are killing off Abbotts, when are they going to bring back Jack's kids?

I don't blame him, but MAB thinks that Adam is the next Victor and that is not going to happen because Adam is too far irredeemable in my book and I just can't stand Adam, but MM is doing a great job with a lousy character.

If the producers plan on making Adam the next generation to continue the Abbott/Newman feud who will take over the reins from Jack? Billy? Keemo?
Speaking of Jack it might be interesting to find out what happens when Peter Bergman goes into contract talks. He is the next big name on the show. The next few months will be interesting

Everyone is replaceble, even EB. If he doesn't want to take the pay cut that all the rest have taken, then show him the door.
