kicking himself for being so emotionally invested in the Roller-coaster Raptors

First Norma, now Jack! Noooooooooooooo!!!


Seriously, it will be a huge blow if he doesn't get to call games next year. He's the only guy who can control Swirsky's uncontrolled zeal, and provides smart, insightful commentary to boot.

Well I must be the minority here. I like the duo of Leo and Chuck. I also enjoy Chuck , I am sure there will be room for Chuck somewhere. If you go to the ACC you will find that Leo is a fan favourite. Great to see Canadian guys involved with the raptors. Maybe someday we just might have both Jay and Leo behind the Raptors bench.

Rap123 you are soooo wrong about Leo... people cannot stand him... they only reason they call his name is to make fun of him...

convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

Here's Eric Smith's impression on Jack's future here in Toronto.

“The Coach” has been around the Toronto scene for 10+ years and he has become synonymous with the Raps.

He MUST be involved with the Raptors in some way/shape/form next season and for many years to come.

And I’m sure that will happen.

Even if they’re not broadcasting Raptors’ games, Sportsnet could still try re-signing Jacko. Plus, there’s no saying that TSN or The Score won’t make a pitch for the former head coach of the Niagara Purple Eagles. And when all is said and done, you’re sure to see plenty of Jack on Raptors TV … whether it be on the pre and post game shows, Raptors Today, and/or Full Court Press. You will also hear Jack (with me) on every pre-game show on the FAN’s radio broadcasts and he can be seen and heard every Thursday on “Hoops” on the FAN 590 and Raps TV.

So, barring a major offer from another team in the NBA (which could easily happen) … you’ll still be seeing and hearing plenty from Jack.

I’ll continue to push for Jack to do even “more” with the Raptors as well. If you’ve heard the radio broadcasts over the past few seasons - or the pre and post game show for nearly 10 years - you’ve heard me campaign for Jack to be named to the Raptors’ staff as well. Whether it be as a scout, adviser, assistant coach, Assistant GM, or even as a ”basketball ambassador” … I truly believe that Jack has more to offer to this city and this organization. As great as he is as a broadcaster and entertainer, I think he could have a greater impact and role in helping guide Canada’s only franchise into the future.

The world would be a better place with more Jack!

Well then you're probably in the minority. Who doesn't find it amusing when a colour guy goes out of his way to admire one of the team dancers being bent over in front of the camera?

jack is the greatest, and he's very knowledgeable, despite the appearances. Leo's always talking like he's the ultimate authority on basketball, and that makes him look like an expert to some - but it's Jack's opinion I respect more. And once in a while, Jack will also tell it like it is -as hard it is for these guys with their close ties to the club and all that.
