    No he is not - he is terrible boring and a total nerd. They just have him out there to make Rod Black look human. Rob black in HD make Keith Richards look like Myley cirus.

    But worst of all is Jacks Forced smile when he looks in the camera. I like Jack's comentary he just has to dumb himself down to Matts level when they work together.
    LMAO, well said! I friggin HATE Rod Black man! Like, can MLSE not just hire some former NBA player, ie, JYD or hell Alvin Williams to comment. Put them through broadcasting 101, etc. Devlin is like Ron Burgundy, he doesn't know SHI*. I feel bad for Jack, I think half the time he is drunk anyways so who cares.

    I used to think Armstrong had kind of a "drunken white Bill Cosby" charm, but yeah it seems to be getting a little out of hand lately. I honestly think they hit rock bottom when Jack and Matt were flossing those ridiculous t-shirts over top of their suit jackets. They looked absurd, and the look on Doug Smith's face said it all.

    I have been complaining about Devlin for awhile. I just cant handle his sense of humour, oratorical drone, salesman demeanor, hand movements, leading questions and forced tonal elevation on a Weemsical dunk. But above all its the asinine banter while I am pissed about how the game is going (in the dumper mostly) that I detest the most...and he is dragging Jack right into the muck. I once came upon a telecast when they were into one of these nonsensical digressions and all I wanted was the score (which the telecast for some reason wasnt putting up on the screen while they were bantering. Irritating. These guys are trying to put lipstick on a pig and think they are being diversionary. Why was it that the Swirsk left again? At least the guy came across genuine...nerdy and pompous in an endearing smurfy way.

    Excuse the rant. It is a game. And these are the Raptors. I know...or keep telling myself.

    No dude, you are totally right. At least with Swirsk, when we were getting blown out, he would keep calling the game, and interject with comments directly related to the Raps players and the team, etc. Matt and Jack are terrible now, they literally pick some topic and go with it.

    Did anyone here this last night- "hey, here's a # you can't dispute, the great one Wayne Gretzky turned 50 today"

    Seriously??? Like, I know we are losing, but just call the f*cking game. If i wanted to watch Gretzky BS i would turn it on TSN where they were playing Gretzky wankbank footage all day!

    Sir, I demand you retract that statement. How DARE you put Devlin in the same category as Mr. Burgundy. He is a very important person. His appartment smells of rich mahogany.....

    Funny thing is, last game I was at, Gretzky was sitting court-side and was introduced in the middle of the game. 5 minute standing O for him. How did that make the Toronto players feel? A retired dude from a different sport watching the game gets more love than them?

    It's a tough job with a losing team...I also have it on good authority that the "truck" is instructed to replay only positive plays which explains the disjointed coverage of the game (a peeve). It also means the TV play by play guys have very little to talk about that is relevant. Count the times one of the play by play guys starts talking about a poor Raps play that just happened...but the video replay shows a positive play three possessions old (over and over).

    Devlin is actually quite good when he does the non-Raptor playoffs games...they hire him for a reason.
    Well, that's why it's interesting to watch games live too. When I saw the Memphis game last week, every time out a coach is yelling out something to certain players and certain players are giving it to other players. You simply do not see that in a tight broadcast.

    Gretzky's a fuckin icon. He deserved that standing ovation.

    Swirsky stayed on topic? Are you kidding? Swirksy is just as bad as Devlin. The difference is that Swirsky sounded like he was on 8 red bulls.

    I don't see what the big deal is giving a shout out to a living legend.

    Some of you just like to complain about nothing.

    It's context bro. I could tell when they brought up the Gretzky comment they were just trying to stretch out their nonsense banter, obviously on instruction from the truck. I actually was thinking "are you kidding me, they are still not talking about the game".

    Mango, do not disrespect the memory of the Swirsk. Matt D doesnt even deserve to drink his bathwater.

    MP, go back and watch a Raptors game from back in the day when Swirsky was calling it. Swirsky was about even with Devlin in regards to going off-topic and such.

    Still, I don't see the problem with it. I didn't mind it.

    Watched plenty bro, Swirsk kept the talk within the context of the game and the organization. Raptors-centric. Plus his salami and cheese pack and bobblehead trumps any "matt and jack" kife swag they ar peddling now on TV.

    I don't think you watched that much. If you did, you'd know they were on par with each other.

    As for who's ticket pack is better, who gives a fuck? It's the same amount of tickets and a crappy Fruit of the Loom T.
