I've had it with matt devlin
 
i don't know if anyone has brought this up before, but matt messes up player names all too often. whether it is an opposing player or one of our own, he finds a way to come off like a complete moron. he called dirk, turk, and bargs, dirk (when dirk was on the bench).

i can't remember the other specific times, but i'm certain he's done this on multiple occasions. its just annoying, but i digress...we're winning.

BANG ON!?

zachus 01-17-2010 02:54 PM

Yeah...who cares...

kia4ever 01-17-2010 02:54 PM

yea when dirk dunked on us he kept screaming "turkoglu to the basket"!!

the thing that pisses me off is when other teams do a big play he seems soo excited. Anouncers should have a certain amount of bias, not overwhelmingly but just a little.

jeffb 01-17-2010 02:56 PM

finstock 01-17-2010 02:56 PM

Well, there's nothing you can do about it...So here's looking at you: PUNJABI!!!!

Ex2k 01-17-2010 02:59 PM

Matt's a fucking idiot i cant stand him

when he's like TURK to the basket...... i was like wtf? Dallas has the ball :confused2:

Gurk 01-17-2010 03:07 PM

lol Dirk was driving and Matt was like Turk to the basket and good. He didn't even correct himself. He sucks

Now that we have started to win somewhat consistently, it seems as if we're looking for other outlets for complaint. Honestly, if Devlin didn't know who Jason Terry is, would he have worked for the American networks during the playoffs? Clearly not, it's somewhat of a odd thought for people here to believe that they know more than a professional, or they could do a better job. Oh well, the same people complaining are the same ones who loved Chuck and all of his ubiquitous punch and emphatic outbursts. He was terrible and Devlin is a far more versatile commentator.

Let's just enjoy these winning ways, and try not to complain so much about irrelevant things. Devlin's fine.

Yeah, I spotted that too, just shook my head. My poor wife asked me isn't Turk on our team? lol, Devlin is a screw-up.

He loves his job and gives me a laugh.

Would you really rather prefer Leo Rautins??? :dead:

Devlin/Armstrong are one of my fav broadcasting duo's.

And some here wonder why i hate him so much? :suspicious:

Windex 01-17-2010 03:11 PM

when he said Turk to the basket I thought it was because he smelt some pizza

Kirby 01-17-2010 03:12 PM

+1. Chuck was the definition of a shill, his shtick got irritating fast.

People complain about Devlin being a homer, I guess memory is selective and short in Raptor nation. Devlin is so much closer to the middle than Chuck, and a neutral broadcast is so much more enjoyable.

There both homers, period. But Chuck was 100x better overall and more likeable and it's not even close.

I can picture Devlin working at an office somewhere and being the obnoxious guy everyone hates and talks about behind his back. The cheesy guy that slaps everyone on the back?? What a fucknut!
