Lies Lies!!!!!!!!!!!!! They will always favour everything else over basketball.

Leafs game on, move the raps game, Jays game on, move the raps game, NHL original 6 match up on....move the raps game.....NHL game with 1 Canadian team on.....move the raps game......NHL game featuring the 2 worst teams in the league.......cancel the raps game, extend Hockey Central from 11am-4PM that day, show Raptors highlights the following day 10 minutes into the show while only taking 45 seconds to recap the entire game, while at the same time they featured the Van vs Pit hockey game highlights first and took 3 minutes to go over the highlights in a 1-0 loss..........................

They seriously need to work on getting some semblance of a basketball show on 590/1050 (even though i hate 1050) that is more then just an Hour episode of hoops thats on 1 day a week at freekin 8-9pm. The closest thing we have to basketball talk on the radio is Tim and Sid.....

I wish they would have SN 360 as the basketball de facto channel. Put every game on there, make it available to everyone (which i believe it already is) with basic cable and put some knowlegeable sports people on there. Tim & Sid + Grange should do the off the court/halftime stuff + court surfing and have Matt and Jack do every game. No more Leo!

I agree with this ^^^. If they could just put the Raps games on a permanent channel then everyone would be happy.

I think SN is out of the basketball sweepstakes (main channels) unless it's SN 360. I think TL will be looking to not have this team's games bounce around from game to game and have it be more specific. This is why i think SN 360 is perfect, because i don't see TSN commiting to put the majority of the Raps games on their main channel.

Leo is boring but lately I noticed Jack becomes too involved analyzing the team, the refs and their calls. I am sick of it. Give me facts during the game and play by play. You wanna get your feet wet? Go back to coaching.

Jack shows passion, and gets excited, shows emotion. Leo is his same boring ass self making the same boring ass comments whether we are losing by 30, winning by 30 or going into a triple overtime with Miami in game 7 of the Conference Finals

Play by play and facts is Devlin's job. Analysis is Jack's job. That's why there are two of them.

I totally agree. I just don't wanna hear him bitching about calls all the time nor lack of energy etc... as a media personnel you deliver facts, and being an analyst supposed to analyze certain elements of the games to the folks at home. He at times starting to sound like a broken record, and this comes for someone who really used to like him. He's very knowledge but at times I am fed up with his criticism and bitching.

This is obvious, but some of his stuff is totally not.
