Default A Couple More Play-by-Play Candidates

Haven't heard of either, but maybe some of you have heard of Inglis and Devlin.

But because he's never done TV, the Raptors are also looking at Devlin, who has worked with TNT, the Memphis Grizzlies and Charlotte Bobcats.

He sounds like the anti-Swirsk.

Mike Inglis, Miami Heat, WIOD, 610 AM
Mike Inglis is the opposite of a homer. Unlike his TV counterpart, the unctuous Eric Reid, Inglis calls it like he sees it -- through a half-empty glass, pessimistically. His stoic sidekick, former Heat guard John Crotty, is often left to pick up the pieces after Inglis drops a despairing on-air monologue: "I don't know about you, John, but as glad as I am that the Heat are up by 30 going into the half, I can just feel disaster coming if these guys don't start making their free throws. Maybe not now, but soon. It's just pathetic to watch these guys at the line." (It's not all doom and gloom, though -- Dwyane Wade's acrobatics often have Inglis rejoicing.) Miami Herald sports columnist and 790 AM sports talk host Dan LeBatard is an Inglis fan. "I want truth undistilled, even if I don't like what I'm hearing, instead of sugar-coated crud from propagandists who don't utter a syllable without remembering who pays them for said syllable," LeBatard rants in an e-mail about Inglis. "I don't want to be lied to by people paid to pull out the peppy pompoms."

Obviousley Devlin would be better for the job seeing as he has experience on TV. But really, for me, I couldn't care less about this much.
