    Leo just sounds bitter about everything. He's like the hipster commentator, he knows about everything before it was cool and he hates on everyone.

    I like Leo and would be sad to see him go.

    Jack drives me nust with the same stupid shit game after game, stop singing, stop saying HELLLLLOOOO, and Git that Garbage outa here. You don't have to use a catch phrase all the time.

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

    Agreed.

    I personally don't care about the commentator. Leo is boring, but I personally don't mind because sometimes he does have something insightful to say. Jack and Matt are definitely the best, but it doesn't bug me.

    I'm always getting confused about Leo and Jack, are they brothers?

    What gave it away, one being a rautins and the other armstrong, or that one is tall and blonde and the other is a tiny old irish guy?

    Am I the only one who hates Matt more than Leo?!

    I look at Leo as is in the mould of the Traditional Sports Broadcaster. He doesn't ramble on about Bon Jovi like those other Losers. He pays attention to the game, and generally offers insightful commentary. Some of which we may find "obvious", but we are within the 5% of 'hardcore fans'. For the average watcher, I'm sure he offers some educational content. Again, unlike Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum.

    I have to agree with this.

    As always, Matt looks like a total Dweeb, and Leo looks pretty damn cool.

    And to be honest, this is the MOST awkward pose ever by Matt. Ever.

    This is entirely unnecessary, It's not like he's a Buck Martinez or anything so there's absolutely no need to fire him.

    I'm surprised that 8 people actually signed the petition. That's 7 more than I would've expected....

    Let's get drunk.

    When Leo says:

    "Why would you jump on a pump fake?" DRINK
    "Why would you block the ball out of bounds? Just grab the ball. That's way more intimidating?" DRINK
    "You have to catch the ball in triple threat position. Knees bent." DRINK
    "The have to start taking it to hole. The can't start settling for jumpers." DRINK

    I don't like him. But to be fair, I have friends that aren't hardcore hoop heads that find him informative. We're just too smart for him guys! I imagine he'll be the token canadian commentator until Joel Anthony retires.

    "Matt, that's a seven footer out there".

    LOL. I love the level of vitriol that Leo inspires. If you've never had the pleasure of meeting Rautins, I can assure you he is much more unlikable in person....

    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.
    Jack and Leo would never work together, seeing as they're both analysts. My point was about the Jack/Matt - analyst/play-by-play man relationship. I don't think that chemistry is special; I think Jack would get along great with any other play-by-play man.
