He's a bit more bland and when he tries to sound excited it sounds much more forced. I don't mind him to be honest, it makes the broadcasting sound a bit more legitimate and professional, but I do miss some of the inside jokes between Swirsk and Armstrong/Rautins.

I'm with you on this one Ugo, I'm definitely not a Devlin fan. He's boring, sounds forced when he tries to bring any excitement and "borrows" a lot of catch phrases. I don't think I need to hear Bill Raftery's classic "Send it home Jerome!!!" catch phrase reworked as "Send it home Joey!!!" Ugh.

Also, if I have to hear him ask Leo one more time what's in his wallet, I'm going to lose it. I realize it is a promo, but enough's enough already.

at this point, as a fan, i could care less who calls the games. i care more about a team who's playing on the uglier side of mediocre.

Devlin is awful.From his mixing up words, to his Timmy Horton's,he's as boring as watching paint dry.And almost as annoying as Leo.He just really seems like a big loser you wanna stuff in a locker.

I really miss Swirsky!

As i stated a buddy works closely with him at times at the ACC, and cant stand him either, says he is an arrogant ass, who likes to do that hard slap on the back to guys he barely knows.

I like him.

He cracks me up and he doesn't distract from the game.

You know, the whole reason for tuning in.

This could be the first good laugh I've had today. I know guys who do that and I hate it.

Honestly if Chuck was here he would be telling everyone that this team is going to be alright and giving us the Raptor Party Line. I mean at least Matt tells it like it is and if the Raptors play bad he expresses that. I am grateful to have that kind of honesty in the booth. But as cling said who cares about who is calling the games the problems are on the floor not in the broadcast booth.

I'm starting to turn on Devlin. He really doesn't know what he's actually talking about half the time. I've begun to just mute the games and watch them that way. A LOT more enjoyable.

People were saying this and more about the Swirsk. Always people were muting games and blah blah.

All commentators suck, really.

I for one like Devlin because he doesn't cause me to lose focus from the game every 2 seconds.

People just naturally want what they can't have anymore.

For the record I liked Chuck. As for Devlin haven't heard him much so I really haven't formed an opinion.
