I definitely miss the Swirsk but Matt's doing okay. He's not great, but at least he does have some emotion and passion in his call of the game...which i would take over a dry lesser douchebag any day.

Something about him makes me dislike him, just his personality. He's pretty bad at calling games at times too. He'll call players by the wrong name, get distracted and not call the game at all at times, his calls are delayed often (on rebounds, fouls, steals etc.) and his sudden excitement when someone hits a shot while he's rambling sucks too. Not to mention the nick names. I voted: He sucks, get rid of him.

You know things are bad when posters actually make polls about the fuckin broadcasters.

I'm too concerned by the product on the floor to be worried about Devlin. I'm indifferent I guess.

This went on during the 47 win season as well. "The Commentator" received far more than his fair share of criticism when the team was playing the best it has in 8 years.

Thats right, the Swirsk!!!!!

Watched couple of games online and the younger guy has no personality, even the "Helloo" yelling old coach has more character than him.

i said "get rid of him"

Still he's better than say..reggie miller

Devlin is not bad, nothing compared to chuck. But I noticed if you guys didn't he zones out sometimes and just watches the game. He doesn't even say anything! It jokes

Agreed, I'd take him over Reggie Miller and Kenny Smith any day, week, or month of the year.

If Devlin loses the Bang On then he's golden, but really I could care less.

I definetly miss Chuck, his enthusiasm got me into the games mostly because i knew nothing about basketball. I can also understand how he could piss you off if you'd been following bball for years. As for Devlin, well he comes across as a smarmy git, and these stupid Jackies that he keeps goin on an on about, god i really wish he'd give it a rest.

Homerism aside, my favourite broadcaster is and always will be Dan Shulman. Used to like listening to him do Jays games on TSN before he was wooed away by ESPN. I know he's living the good life down south but I'd love to see him up here doing Raptor games.

I always thought he sounded like a robot or auctioneer(take your pick) for some reason.
