    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....

    I typed up a response but decided I can't share. He's just one of those people that instantly rubs you the wrong way. You know that condescending, arrogant tone he uses on TV while he name drops and reminds everyone he played in the NBA? Yeah, it's no different in real life.

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

    Biased? They're hardly biased.

    All 3 have some annoying tendencies, but all in all I've never not enjoyed a raps game because of them. If Jack ever stops scaring the crap out of me with his random BACAADIs, that would just be icing on the cake.

    What I would like to hear is completely unbiased commentators who aren't afraid to say when one of our teammates actually does something wrong. This would help to educate the common fan so people stop thinking that Bargnani is good (as an example from a few years ago)

    No they're at least a little biased. It's bound to happen when they pay you and you follow a team like that. I think it's forgivable and there's some teams that have way more biased announcers.

    I have a couple of friends that are casual hoop watchers and they think that the refs absolutely have a vendetta on the Raptors. Mostly (I think) because all they ever see is Raptor feeds.

    The only time you'll ever really see almost totally unbiased announcing is when you watch the ABC or TNT feeds.

    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.
    You cannot guess what they are actually doing with the pose....yes, showing off their socks!!!

    (Pic taken off Leo's twitter feed). Fun on the road. I swear I still cannot understand the value of Twitter....so much noise and gets one into trouble mostly if in the public eye or as in this case derision..lol

    I was at the Minny game a couple of weeks ago and me and my friends went to give props to Matt and Sherm after the game. Leo was standing there with them and I totally ignored him. I was like, "Good job Matt, well done Sherm!" Then left Leo totally hanging, like he was expecting something to.

    My nice guy protest.

    You can't call him a little bitch for that move and then put 'no offence' at the end.

    I have spoke with Leo a few times, and I can't say the same. Was at a game at Ricoh when he was National team coach. I was sitting 2 or 3 rows behind the bench, my wife and I had gotten up to get some food and, by accident, left our camera under the seat. When we got back, Leo came over and said he picked it up to make sure that nobody would walk away with ity and handed it back to us...

    When watching sports you want to be entertained. Leo just isn't entertaining. Compare him to JVG for example. JVG just has so much more enthusiasm and that makes it so much easier to watch and listen to him.

    I have no problems if they replace Leo.. just don't know if they will and with who? It has to be someone that is well versed in basketball so an ex coach or an ex player. But they probably need some connection to the Raptors or Canadian basketball. I wouldn't want Magloire in there for example.

    I say wait a few years and then go after the Red Rocket once he retires from the Spurs. He would be entertaining!
