I don't agree with any of these. I can see why you'd say that for a few of them, but not the rest.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.
TFS getting shafted from the Kai TFC dub is a great travesty.
GT sucks, get over it if you disagree.
Um...Listen to Waterparks.
That is all.

I have a hard time to take Kaio, Ox-King and Master Roshi seriously with those voices. Funnily enough, Kaio's voice in the Ocean dub was the same voice that Schemmel has been imitating since 1999, yet I could take Brown's Kaio seriously. Majin Buu is intolerable to listen to. Burgmeier's Tenshinhan just lacks the authoritative tone that Suzuoki and Midorikawa have. I still get surfer vibes from Sabat's Yamcha. Cranz's Chi-Chi lacks Sho's nuance.

And yet, it's their takes on the characters & they've been voicing them for years. There's no way they would've recasted the, especially since the actors are still alive & acting.

It makes no difference. Nadolny and Vollmer had been voicing those characters for years and they still got replaced. Same thing happens with characters from other franchises.

Nadolny & Volmer haven't worked for FUNi for YEARS, though. Volmer moved out f Texas to do live action acting & Nadolny didn't return due to apparent personal differences with Sabat regarding Gohan. They tried having as many main & secondary cast members come back as they could. Hell, we'd still be stuck with Linda Young as Frieza if she could talk better, as evidenced from what Sabat & Schemmel have stated. There's no way they would've recasted every character you bring up, regardless of how you feel. Every actor has voiced the characters they have out of those ones since the show moved its dubbing to Texas & that's how it's gonna stay for the foreseeable future. And even if a lot of other people want recastings, which not a lot of people really do, to no bring those people back would've just not been right. Better get used to them, bud.

Fine then.

I'm just saying, it's probably less frustrating that way.

Maybe I was a little harsh on Cranz.

I mean, don't just throw you're opinion away. Regardless of whether they ever get recasted or not, you ain't gotta like em or "get used to them" if you don't wanna. And if you don't, then that's fine. I agree with most, if not all, of your picks. Mainly the bigger ones like King Kai and Master Roshi.

They aren't really hard to understand. Not agree with, ok. But those choices specifically aren't particularly hard to find why someone might have problems with them.

Of course I don't have to like them or get used to them. I just have to get used to the fact that they won't likely get replaced by people who could play those roles better.
