i truly can't believe that anyone will miss the chuckisms. i was so desperate to be rid of them last year i actually cheered - loudly - with my bro when his move to chicago was announced.
i'm pretty sure there's a good reason for his doing a 'straight' call in chicago - the chuckisms were totally provincial and, I would say, unprofessional. sure, be enthusiastic and have fun, but arguing with the colour guy about how early the salami should be pulled out... i mean that's just ludicrous.
uhhh..... that is 100% Leo Rautins being unable to stop being ass for even a second. That is Leo Rautins mocking Chuck and being a dickwad bully. Yeah, I said bully, cuz that's how Leo behaved.
Chuck had a good thing going for a while with the Salami and Cheese call.... he was lowkey about it and said it when he thought the game was over......but Leo felt it was necessary to make it a major issue every time.... felt it was more important to talk about that than actually talk about the game.
So, yes..... Chuck's catchisms began to get annoying towards the end of his stay..... but I certainly don't think that is all Chuck's fault.
