He just yammers away the whole time, rarely commenting on the game at hand, and always delivering the lamest possible commentary on the action.

Now, we can disagree on whether his commentary is good or not - obviously I think it's terrible - but the point is that if you find it irritating, it's impossible to keep it out of mind. It takes away from the enjoyment of the game. Constantly.
First off have you ever listened to other team's broadcasts? Their broadcasters are just as homeristic and biased...only few of them have a personality..they're just drones that lull you to sleep. In other words, dont' hate chuck for supporting the team he is paid by..he's pretty complimentary of other teams, coaches and players as well and may not rip the Raps when they're sucking but he doesn't ignore their weaknesses either.

Second you comment about him rarely commentating on the game is untrue and unfair. If you really listen and not through your anti-chuck fuzzy pink ear muffs you'll notice when the action is on he's calling it...what he does do is interject historical comparisons and anecdotes for Leo or Jack to comment on from a basketball perspective, and while you may or may not want to learn about that aspect of the game, it's history and people...some of us do. I guess if you dont' that could be annoying?

Third..you DO have another option. Put your radio or internet broadcast to the fan 590 and listen to Paul and Eric!
