I also think that your labeling Devlin as more 'urban' therefore more 'down' or 'in the know' to be kinda out-there. I don't make that connection - but that's just me.
Whatever F-Dawg.

I prefer Devlin as a whole, but Swirsk calls a major jam and clutch shot so well. Devlin was calling games for TNT in the playoffs, just goes to show you how good he is, IMO. But I wish we had Gus Johnson!!

Leo is pretty redundant. He points out that his national team has played against everyteam's token international player. Then he continues to outline how that international player burned them.

To quote Chuck: "Ah, ya gotta love it"!

personally i don't really have anything against devlin because that is his style, which is a plain style, i get that, its more because he is so different from chuck which is what we are actually hating, but i think that was the point of it all, we got someone that was basically the complete opposite so that we can't compare them, we can only contrast them

like these guys or not they make some good coin to call a game they love.

- Chuck is basically buttering it up for a potential return to T.O - still drinks the Kool-Aid
- Delvin is pretty good and knows his stuff, he must be looked upon as a valuable commentator, TNT picks him up for the playoffs every year
- Leo, well as a commentator the guy comes across as self indulgent, repetitive and usually boring as heck

Buy yea, bring back the Swirs

Every game I listen Eric and Jonsey with TV audio down. I really enjoy their call, I like Smith's quick commentary style.

They are biased, like a local team's guys should be---but sometimes they take it a little too far, but still very enjoyable.

Swirsky on the radio is awesome

i used to say devlin was unlistenable, but he's so bad that you want to listen to him just to laugh at him, Leo is the unlistenable one, that guy annoys me to no end

swirk was a radio guy doing t.v in toronto, he belongs on the radio

i'm glad i don't have to listen to him all Raptors games anymore

i do like the guy as a person but yet again radio


devlin is legit, tnt broadcasts, sometimes he gets carried away but overall i enjoy his calls

i think jack and leo need to be replaced, or add another guy to call a 1/3 of hte games, i wouldn't mind doug christie or a former raptor player
