    Default Raptors Broadcast Survey

    http://view.mlsefanmail.com/?j=fe521...0d79711570&r=0

    I just received this in an e-mail and would encourage everyone to complete it. I'm a big believer in "if you don't vote, you don't get to complain". I think it's important for the team to receive genuine anonymous feedback regarding our broadcasts, which I believe are in the bottom half of the league from a professionalism standpoint. Here's your chance to be heard. Use it.
    There's math, and everything else is debatable.

    Done. The three things that annoy me are:

    1. Leo
    2. Devlin/Jack screwing around (I know the team is terrible but come on)
    3. Showing replays during live action, missing key replays and cutting to different cameras during the play

    I guess that's 5 things.

    Did mine as well.

    My main points were:

    - atrocious half time show with Leo and Rod Black
    - cutting to different cameras mid play (ESPECIALLY baseline views for dunks)
    - basically anything to do with the camera work

    It amazes me how many people have similar views about the broadcasts. How this is not a major topic at the board level is beyond me. This is a major aspect of the game for the home viewer. Agree with everything here. Professionalism needs to be stepped up a notch as well as quality of information given. The playoff commentators and production crews are akin to watching a movie unfold before you. Ours looks like a university student making an indie film.

    Devlin needs to get rid of all the sayings/nicknames he gives the players. If he starts calling Raps games like he does national games, then I'll have no problem with him.

    Yeah, I had pretty much the same issues.....Bad replays...Shitty camera angles. Way too many baseline shots...possibly the worst angle for capturing game action. And please please stop the replays cutting into game action. Oh yeah, and fire Rod Black x1000000

    Wow, thanks a lot this is fantastic. I just filled mine out and man did it feel good to vent my opinions out to people that actually matter (no offense).

    Most of my opinions on the broadcast were extremely negative as I feel this is what it deserves, and something tells me I wasn't the only one.

    Couple of things:

    - Matt, Leo, and Rod were all given a paragraph of verbal abuse

    - My opinions are neutral on Jack, I don't love him

    - The "replay while game is still going on" issue was addressed

    - The camera quality itself is pretty awful compared to other American broadcasts

    Did mine....

    Basically spent it pointing out how bad Leo is, and Black, asked why they don't use Sherm, changing cameras during fast breaks, the dumbed down analysis, etc.,

    The lack of professionalism in this broadcast bugs me. The whole media and broadcast vibe feels like its for a non-fan or for a child

    I don't know why everyone craps on Leo, the guy is not that bad, I like him more than Jack and Matt, hell even Chuck Swirsky got on my nerves more than Leo.

    Dude Leo is an idiot. He's easily the worst commentator the raptors have. Matt actually isn't half bad when he isn't saying stupid shit, and Jack is always at his best.

    Leo is way too dry and boring, and he has a knack for pointing out the obvious. Jack is, at least, a little animated and a good pairing with Devlin, who is also a little dry. Both Leo and Matt tend to praise the club even when they clearly suck, but Jack doesn't mind as much just telling it how it is. Rod Black is clearly one of the worst sports broadcasters ever.
