Default Fire Leo Rautins Petition

I know I'm not the only one here that thinks this, but Leo has got to go....ASAP. This guy is so dam boring, I actually hate watching the games on sports net because of him. He literally, and I mean this, puts me to sleep regardless of the time, day, score or pace of the game. Even Matt Devlin is effected by the bore that is Leo. When Matt is on with Jack the commentary is lively, and fun to watch and listen to. They play so well off each other and have this great chemistry. With Leo beside Matt he turns into this dull, boring, standard run of the mill play-by-play announcer, and I'm not saying Matt a bore when he's on with Leo, he's just a different, less exciting, more ho-hum kinda guy. So I'm triad of this shit, its time to get Leo replaced with someone, anyone, even Jones is a huge upgrade over Leo and his boring ass analysis.....

SOoooooooo sign the petition and maybe, just maybe someone somewhere important will see that Leo "Imma Bore You Do Death" Rautins needs to go so we can Free MattyD

He is kind of annoying with his constant preaching and microphone hogging. Sometimes I want to switch to opponent team feed. As for petition and firing him, I don't know. I'm not bothered by his commentary that much and honestly, I do not notice it as much when the Raptors are playing good.

Maybe it would be better to write him an e-mail?

No! He is hurrendous. I hope that next season TSN gets all the games and Leo is reduced to trading barbs with Rod black a few times during the game and we get all Jack/Matt.

Don't get me wrong man, I prefer Jack too, but to call for someone's job like that... I dunno... He's bad, but it's not like he's clubbing baby seals while calling the game...

This isn't new, his job is safe. Don't worry, he's going nowhere. These petitions never go anywhere.

You know who I can't stand? The kid/woman who shouts/counts down the shotclock. Makes me cringe every time...

The Pizza one imo will work. Not just because of the petition but i think the whole booing the team when they win leaves a bad taste in TL's mouth.

That's Demar Derozan's Fiance. Maybe you should start a petition to have Derozan traded.

Really?? That's messed up! Is she Asian? She sounds Asian...



Like this...

The anti-pizza petition makes sense imho. The promotion really makes us look bad. Leo makes us look bad as well, but in a lesser degree lol. I always get a feeling fans from other teams like our playbyplay or at least think they are unbiased etc.

To make a petition to have someone fired is disgusting. He's not great, and I would prefer SMitch instead, but to make a petition for it? This is not even a worthy cause. For shame.

Watching games around the league makes me realize that we're lucky to have Leo. Most color guys are way more bias and far less articulate.

I hate his constant repeating of his talking points. The man is awful imo. If 80% of the games had Jack then it wouldn't be too bad i guess. All things being equal i'd rather see Eric Smith with Matt then Leo.
