    I like Devlin, I don't mind Swirsk, but if you thought Devlin was a straight up homer, Chuck is the pure definition of biased.

    Devlin and Jack actually express some emotion in their tone for the oppositions' plays. Just my ears though.

    Chuck was awesome, made the calls fun, but Devlin is just as intelligent, interacts just as well, and I just prefer his voice over Chuck's.

    Is this an apocalypse? People complaining about Jack (the only person in this shitty Canadian broadcast that doesn't make me want to punch the television 80% of the time), but praising Leo?

    I always watch every Raptor game. i use NBA league pass in the USA & sometimes get the opposing team broadcast. Really don't care, just wanna see the game. i think we have the worst announcers in the league.

    Devlin I can handle....don't forget he did some of the playoff games for TNT last year. That is a job many of announcers would like. I like Swirk better, but Devlin doesn't bother me.

    I can't decide if I hate Jack or Leo more. I don't learn anything from any of them. No matter what they say i always feel like saying thank you Captain Obvious. Jack with the "jimmy" & all of his other sayings I don't understand. He is really annoying. Leo might be good if I didn't have eyes. He doesn't provide insight. I guess the only alternative is Jamal Magloire. Just think we can do better.

    +1 Jack is a beer drinking, TV god compared the rest of the broadcast crew. Jack entertains me during games more so than Leo and frankly thats all Im looking for. I get enough actual insight from blogs, websites and actually watching the games.

    Jack has got bball smarts. Whether you like his approach or not is ones personal choice. I respect him a lot. Matt Devlin, on the other hand annoys the hell out of me, to the extend I watch Raps games online with a visiting team reporting...

    At least we agree on something vino

    Seriously, I just assume that Devlin is an alcoholic or something...he often seems out of sync and confused

    jack got on my nerves way back!! like VC era..too bad the Swirsk had family matters in Chicago, hes by far my fav. raptors broadcaster.. Devlin should be doing curling broadcasts!! hes just as boring as a curling match.... Id take Jack over Leo everyday of the week though... Leo is by far the worst of the bunch..keeps repeating the same crap for 10 years!!!! Yes we know a block is better if kept in play! youve only been telling us for 10 years!!!

    compared to other regional broadcast teams, ours is actually not bad at all, despite how annoying they can get..

    i watched the miami broadcast of the last raps game against them... they actually said "the miami bigs crowding the paint"... AFTER Toronto got a rebound and were already halfway up the court.

    I like Mike Breen. I have no idea how you could stand the clippers' goofs though. Didn't they get suspended for saying Haddadi was Borats brother?

    I like Jack, hate Leo.

    Miami's commentators are THE very best in the league for non-nationally televised games. i.e. TNT, ESPN.
    I agree with you about the Jack and Leo part. But I think that the Heat's colour guy is the worst thing commentator I have ever heard. That Tony guy has no enthusiasm, lacks knowledge (or at least doesn't share it), terrible voice, and seemingly no chemistry with anything that breathes. First time I heard him I was shocked at how he got the job. Their play by play guy is fantastic and could well be the best in the league, but the colour guy.....Wow he is terrible.

    LOL,

    I guess there will be little consensus. I like Devlin for instance, the mistakes don't bother me, think he has a sharp sense of humour also I get the feeling he is real, unlike Chuck who put on a persona.

    So I guess every on air personality has their demographics, kind of like a boy band. You get a diverse crew, and someone will find one of them endearing, and make the other their villain.


    As for leo, I do a lot of eye rolling after his remarks, but I don't hate him because he is one of our own, and does a lot for basketball in this country.

    100% agree with the bolded part... little wonder why there's an announcer thread popping up every couple months!
