One of the biggest problems i see with guilds in the lower tier raids are their raid leadership. Their biggest problem is that they take so long to explain fights that by the time you get around to doing them, its just boring.For example. You don't have to tell people what the boss does. You just need to tell them what THEY need to do. For example; Quick Shade of Aran explanation:"Stay out of the Blizzard, Move to the wall when you get sucked to the center, don't move during flame wreath. Interupters interupt. Go."Thats all you need to say. I have seen RLs in some of my friends guilds take 10 minutes on this fight when there are 3 new people in the instance. Its deflating and sucks up raid time.

Agreed. And fights like Maulgar are exercise in patience for healers, who want to know who's tanking and who they're healing, and then are happy. Then the DPS spend another 20 minutes figuring out precisely who is doing exactly what. (and then of course a DPSer messes up, raid wipes, and another 20 minutes is spent going over everything again, during which the healers are tabbed out and reading wowinsider while keeping ears peeled for the readycheck)
