Geez this thread is killing me. People just gotta face facts here:

Swirsky was a good commentator, why you guys didn't like him, I have no fuckin clue.

And you can't say anything about Devlin yet because he hasn't done any games with us yet. Sure he sounds as boring as hell in youtube vids and all but no one knows anything about him yet. CHECK HIS DAMN WIKIPEDIA PAGE FOR GODSSAKE!!!

He was a homer to the point of near unprofessionalism.

He was canned enthusiasm. (Think the NBA's Dick Vitale)

He thought we were all very interested in his dinner plans, or other totally irrelevant personal information.

He wasn't particularly basketball savvy.

Catchphrases in general usually suck. Chuck's catchphrases were painful.

That's just me though. I totally understand why people like him. Hell, I've never heard a negative thing about him as a person. I'd just rather not listen to him call an NBA game.
Perhaps a second go through will help?

Oh come on. No disrespect to you or anything but that was written BY YOU!!! And, ironically, you dislike Swirsk. Which is fine, everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

But what will that do?? It's you're opinion. Those different points you posted are not facts at all. If they were Chuck would've got his ass kicked outta here loooong before he left.

Let's take a look at what you've said here...

"You guys" includes me, yes?

So you have no idea why I (and people like me, presumably) dislike Chuck.

I inform you why I (and people like me, presumably) dislike Chuck.

You respond by saying that is simply my opinion.

Isn't it our opinions that would lead us to dislike Chuck?

And points 1, 3 and 4 are facts. No question about it.

Whoa. Can't argue with that

Alright you win.

It's just that it bugs me how much some people bash good people like Chuck. He doesn't deserve all the criticizing, here he was great with TO.

Just my opinion, anyway.

Dude, look at what I said. I said I can understand why people like him, but personally I (and many others) found him relatively unbearable.

Him being a "good person" has nothing to do with it. Hoffa was a good person, Rob Babcock was a good person...it doesn't make you exempt from criticism. If you aren't good at your job, or aren't perceived to be, you get bashed.

It's not an issue of me "winning"...my point is that you keep saying essentially, "I like Chuck, and that's my opinion" That's fine...as long as you respect other's opinions as well.

So when I, in response to your query, go through the effort (minimal, but effort nonetheless ) to post what I consider a pretty valid list of reasons why I dislike Chuck, and you respond by saying "I dont know why you guys don't like Chuck" it indicates to me that you aren't giving me the courtesy of considering and respecting my opinion as well.

So again...it's not an issue of "winning" or Chuck fans vs. Chuck haters. All I'm saying is take the time to read everyone's posts and understand their opinions before you start criticizing them. I had to re-state myself multiple times to you in this thread, all to answer your own question.

My wife screams and cheers so loud watching the games that I would blow me speakers if I turned them up loud enough to hear half of the play by play
