Exclamation Get Out The Salami & Cheese Mama, Swirsky's Gone

Huh ... looks like Chuck may be done as the Raps commentator and would appear is heading home to Chicago.

He always seemed kind of phoney baloney to me.

Someone email him and ask him.

I didn't hate him, he was ok

He seemed like the ultimate Raptors Homer though.

As I recall, he was the only one who voted Bargs for wookie of the year

mehh...I mean..Jack and Leo wouldnt be so bad...if Leo does like play by play and stfu about everything else.

btw Doc, my view on Leo has changed a bit...I think he is a solid head coach. I'm not being sarcastic at all...Beyond all the bullshit that he talks, he knows his stuff..and Sam D has improved ALOT...which tells me whatever Leo did, along with Sam D's workethics, worked.
Now Jamal can keep the bench warm, stupid asshole.

Meh ... I can't stand Leo period. I really, really hope he's replaced fulltime with Jack. All I can imagine now with Chuck leaving is a duo or Rod Black and Leo.

One thing.

Why would Swirsky go back to radio? Unless he really wants to get out of here.

The first name that came to my mind was Rod Black. Ugh, could you imagine? I've never liked Chuck all that much, probably due to the fact I remember Saunders, but Rod Black? Help me.

Maybe they have someone waiting in the wings? Paul Johnson?

I'd say Eric Smith before anyone, but that just my opinion. I like Eric and I think he'd be a good play-by-play guy.

Chuck just confirmed on his radio show that he accepted a job with the Bulls due to family obligations. So its official, they'll be a new voice of the Raptors next season.

I'd just have Jack do the games by himself.

i actually used to really like chuck... but it seems that he got very phony and homerish to the point where he became extremely annoyong.
i hope they bring Jack in....
someone mentioned eric smith... thats actually a good suggestion... i like him.

wow.

That's HUGE news.

I'm kind of mixed about it though.

Firstly, i will admit that Chuck was an annoying cheeseball, and combined with his radio show, fell out of my favour.

However, we have no idea who will be coming in for next year. If it's Rod Black... fuck that, i'd rather have Chuck. We could end up with someone completely shitty. Like some stupid "hockey" broadcaster that they give the job to a la Paul Romanuk
