as we explore the bottomless depths of the off-season, arsenalist digs deep to provide us with a crucial analysis of the broadcast crew. some good stuff here

and yes jeff, we all know you hate matt devlin.

Quote:
Jack Armstrong: When it comes to criticizing the organization he’s more careful than AltRaps when he’s negotiating extra-curricular activities at the Rail. Last year we saw Jack at his most candid, I remember the game in Milwaukee where he was looking for a stapler to throw at Will Solomon. He gives the best play breakdown and situational analysis out there and does it while keeping things fresh. Unlike Leo, his stories aren’t tin-canned, they’re spur-of-the-moment type stuff which you can sit back to and say, A nice chap that man, wouldn’t mind having him over for a drink. He makes me like Irish people. A-.
Quote:
Leo Rautins: Maybe basketball is a sport where the same situations come up so often that they warrant the same analysis. Or maybe Leo just doesn’t have anything else left to say. I can predict what he’s going to say 15 seconds before he says it. Without fail. Devlin will call out a current player, Leo will only do that once he’s left the Raptors for the Nets. I cringe every time he has to call the game because over the last 14 years, I’ve heard all his jokes, all about his NBA “career”, his tin-canned Syracuse stories, how he shared a cab with Kobe’s dad, and how Dr. J once asked him to pass the towel. I think Leo’s ‘good point’ to ‘obvious bullshit’ ratio has fallen to 1:10. You’d think after all these years he would’ve earned a promotion or something with the Raptors but this guy’s been doing the same job for 14 years on 2% raises. He’s got to stop relying on the stat-sheet to tell him what to say, focus on solely the game at hand without the shenanigans of the cheerleaders, Devlin’s pay cheque and that god-damn stupid mutha f***ing ‘What’s in your wallet?’ jokes. C.
check the link to see what he has to say about devlin, eric smith, sherm and the rest of the guys:

I can't stand Leo. He is the biggest two-faced hypocritical sports "anaylst" today. I just want hin to go away. He's a lousy coach too, but I'd rather he do that full-time so we don't have to listen to him anymore.

I think Devlin is a fake in my opinion. I would love to see Junk Yard Dog be in the broadcast or even Charles Oak. I think it would for sure bring up the ratings and also be a little entertaining. And not hearing BANG ON!!!! OR HELLLOOO!!! all the time.

whats with the "jersey" link that comes from all the posted links that involve the word "raptors".

Is that a mistake, or a scam to sell jerseys through Raptors forum.
