    Default Devlin gets around

    It's weird watching Matt Devlin calling the Michigan football game on the big ten network. He's using his common tags like: "when you think about this Michigan football team...gone are the days of Denard Robinson".

    Haha, weird.

    Haha I can see why people like him and I always like when he's on tnt. He's got color in his voice and enjoys getting off topic while sticking to the game (usually) when required. He's grown on me and I'd love him and Jack next year minus leo and rod. Oh and then theres punjabi.

    Devlin's a great play by play guy. Raptors are lucky to have him.

    Devlin's a shmuck, but he's good at what he does.

    Looking at his Bio on Raptors.com, he's done the WNBA Draft on 3 separate occasions ...

    I got over T Mac leaving, Vince and even Bosh, but Raptors games haven't been the same for me since Swirsky left.

    Chuck motherfuckin Swirsky. He was the man. It was sad when he left. He got out at a good time though lol he wouldn't have had much opportunity to say things like "Bring out the salami and cheese mama, this ball game is over!" or "It's raining Trey's here in Toronto!" in the last couple years lol

    You gotta think Devlin is happy to be able to just sit back and call these other sports games and not have to worry about who wins or who loses or having to call it a certain way..

    Plus he doesn't annoy me as much as Bob Costas. Can't express how much I'd like to see him (Costas) flogged.

    Perfect description. Drives me crazy .. but have to give him some props .. especially when I hear him do non-raps stuff. But, in no way, shape or form is he not a shmuck ..

    Matty D has improved as a play by play through the years. Coz I used to only watching nationally televised games where guys like marv albert, mike tirico, al michaels, kevin harlan doing play by plays. Yes he had a lot of terrible lines and errors (Lousy Nicknames like Killer B's, AP, JV,; overtime no raptors win vs nets after devin harris misses gamewinner; calling jonas valanciunas jan vesely; etc.)

    But he also had some funny lines like punjabi as peja drills it, the singing bon jovi w/ jack armstrong (i know some of you guys find it annoying), shot doesn't go, he drills it, him becoming a homer announcer w/ lines like derozan drives inside contact no call lol, and of course him making fun of wale.

    He's actually a pretty decent blue jays commentator too, a good break from buck's nasal voice. I also like how he pronounces Mark Derosa Mark Deroza, like Demar Derozan.

    I can never forgive Swirsk for bring out the salami and cheese in the 3rd quarter of a game against the Lakers then seeing Kobe drop 81 points.

    I`ve heard him during NFL and CFL games also. Playoffs and regular season. He`s pretty versatile, I must say.

    That was quite possibly the silliest "beef" ever caught on camera.
