Default Do you want to hear what Chuck had to say ?

Well my raptor friends I sent an email letter to the man Chuck Swirsky. I was very surprised to see that he returned an email back to me regarding my question. I will copy my email and paste it below for everyones perusal. Please feel free to respond to what you think he said. " SWAN " Fire away my friend you will be surprised to hear what he had to say.

Hi Chuck,

I really enjoy your play by play on t.v.You are by far my favourite when it comes to listening and watching the game on t.v.
I have been a raptor fan right from the beginning and I am seeing for the first time a player like TJ Ford bring down our team. He is more of a cancer then Carter was at the tale end of his stay in Toronto. Boards everywhere want TJ out of Toronto. His selfish play is destroying our team chemistry. How does a guy like Jose Calderon who was on the verge of making the all star team become second fiddle to such a selfish player. I don't get it, this 2 point senerio looks like its ready to explode and I am really afraid that we will lose Jose in the summer because of this.I also follow hockey, teams that have 2 number 1 goalies have trouble, one of the 2 usually end up leaving. Jose is the better fit and TJ is a selfish little player. We as fans see the I attitude in TJ. It seems that the raptor media is playing it down, I am not sure whether its because the Raptors are their employers therefore no negative talk is allowed. I send you this email maybe you can help me understand why such a selfish player like TJ is now getting more minutes then Jose when all TJ is done has created chaos on our team.

Hope to hear from you, I value your opinion,

Always a pleasure,

WOW ... laying it on thick even for Chuck eh raptor123?

Chuck will defend any player who's currently on this team to the bitter end, so I don't imagine him saying anything we don't already know or assume he would say.

i dunno doc... i have a feeling chuck dislikes TJ.
you can just hear it in his voice when he's calling the game.
last night, he would just kinda mutter something like "Tj with another bad attempt"... in a low voice.
he never has anything positive thing to say about TJ either...
Jose, on the other hand; chuck goes crazy about him, he cant say enough...

i'll bet that chuck will agree with what raptor123 said, but will spin it in a positive manner so not to sound like an ass.

he doesnt like TJ at all.

Chuck's a company man first and foremost, so I'll be real shocked to hear him say anything remotely critical.

+1. Chuck is a corporate monkey. He won't diss TJ in any shape or form. He knows better than to bite the hand that feeds him.

How about sending chuck an email asking for TJ's email and maybe you can ask him those questions yourself?

I think its good TJs getting some PT.
Let him pad his stats, prove his health, and regain his value on the market.
Almost every team needs a solid PG!!
Just relax guys, im pretty sure BC knows what hes doing!

There is no way that Chuck goes on record with a written email bashing Me-J Ford.

It would be professional suicide.

When you get your watered down company response, remember its from a guy that wants to keep his job and not his actual opinion.

probably along the lines of: with Bosh out, the Raptors needed a player to step up and try to fill the gap his absence leaves and TJ has stepped up big time but an adjustment period is what'll it take to fine tune the balance of pass and shoot.

I don't expect anything more or less.

Exactly .... nice try though raptor123 but Chuck being blatantly negative about anyone on this team to the public and no offense, just some random fan with a bone to pick, would easily be the writing on the wall for his career here in Toronto.
