    Default Fire Leo Rautins Petition

    I know I'm not the only one here that thinks this, but Leo has got to go....ASAP. This guy is so dam boring, I actually hate watching the games on sports net because of him. He literally, and I mean this, puts me to sleep regardless of the time, day, score or pace of the game. Even Matt Devlin is effected by the bore that is Leo. When Matt is on with Jack the commentary is lively, and fun to watch and listen to. They play so well off each other and have this great chemistry. With Leo beside Matt he turns into this dull, boring, standard run of the mill play-by-play announcer, and I'm not saying Matt a bore when he's on with Leo, he's just a different, less exciting, more ho-hum kinda guy. So I'm triad of this ****, its time to get Leo replaced with someone, anyone, even Jones is a huge upgrade over Leo and his boring ass analysis.....

    SOoooooooo sign the petition and maybe, just maybe someone somewhere important will see that Leo "Imma Bore You Do Death" Rautins needs to go so we can Free MattyD

    Could we start a petition to stop frivolous petitions?

    Leo just has no energy at all and that's making Matty D sound like a little bitch as well

    If you were attending the game live, you wouldn't hear any commentary except the newbie puckhead beside you asking how it's possible to have goaltending without a goalie.

    Am I the only one that doesn't care who the commentators are? My only complaint is how biased they are towards the raps

    Leo does actually make good points sometimes, but he is a bore in general.

    Seems kind of unethical to chase a guy away from his job though..

    Not really cool petitioning to put someone out of a job.

    All local commentators are biased. The Raps team is actually not nearly as bad as many others.

    I hate Leo Rautins as a commentator, but I fear who they'd get to replace him if they fired him. I prefer Jack a bit, but for 82 games? And who the hell else would wanna take the job? Might be cool with it if they could somehow convince Charles Oakley to take the job.

    I kinda care, I mean I don't wanna listen to a game on mute and find it hard to tune out shitty commentary, so I appreciate it if it's good!
    You should listen to Boston's telecast if you want homers...or Portland, or Memphis...or San Antonio or basically anyone except maybe the Knicks. Raptors commentators are far less bias than most, at least they give lots of credit to the other teams, unlike Memphis where it's like a funeral when the other team score. I like Matt and Jack, they have great chemistry and I enjoy their commentary for the most part.

    I'm ambivalent toward Leo. I like Jack. I have a strong, longstanding dislike for Devlin.

    I think anyone would have great chemistry with Jack. He's that kind of guy.

    Dunno, he'd be a miracle worker if he could make Leo anything slightly more than lifeless, but I'd rather not think about Leo as a play by play commentator.
