Thanks! But I'm not clear as to how many games he'll be doing. Will it be the TSN and Raps TV dates, or the Score and CBC as well? I want to think it will be all of them, but I'm happy that we'll get any amount of Jack.

Rumour has it LX that Jack will be doing all the TSN televised games which should be more this season because of Sportsnet dropping basketball all together and Leo will be calling the CBC and SCORE ones. Don't know the official breakdown yet which I don't think will be mentioned until the schedule is released.

Can the mighty Raptor fan base start a petition to MLSE to get rid of Leo all together?

OT: did we ever come up with a new name for the fanbase?

I think they tried last off-season, but to no avail.

You'll have to follow-up with Benzo regarding that one.

Can't wait for Jack.

And I'm guessing the TV games will go something like:

CBC: 20
TheScore: 21
TSN: 41

No, CBC won't get that many games. I assume like last season they'll get about 10 games. They only televised Sunday games last year. It'll be much the same this year too. The SCORE will definitely get the most considering the amount of hockey TSN shows during the winter. I say the SCORE gets closer to half the games with TSN getting about 30 or so and CBC with the rest.

From Doug Smith:

Quote:
Word, late if you’re a regular reader here, comes down yesterday that, yes, Jack and Leo are back to share analyst duties on TV this season, with Jack handling TSN and Leo doing The Score and CBC, both along with play-by-play dude Matt Devlin.
But because we like to advance stories here in blogger-land, I’m hearing that the breakdown is about 45 nights of Jack Games and 37 nights of Leo Games.
So that would give us 45 TSN
And the 37 would be split up b/w CBC and the Score

I thought I read that CBC wants to reduce the number of games they show as well.

CBC doesn't look right on basketball to me. I don't know what it is. I just don't think it really fits. Hockey looks so much better on CBC.

Oh, how I hate Jack Armstrong. His voice just makes it hard for me to watch basketball. However, with the sweet, sweet, magic Bosh and O'Neal make, I can bear it.

Really? I love the New York accent and he's so damn knowledgeable. I'd love for him to call the game alone.

I'm not trying to offend you guys, just saying. My personal preference is his raspy voice just annoys me.

Jack is a great person. I am happy for him and happy to have him as someone that visits my blog on a regular basis. His knowledge in the booth is fantastic.
