Actually he said:

"Wayne Embry is one of THE CLASSIEST MEN i've ever met"

30 seconds later

"Larry Tanenbaum other then my fater is probably the greatest human being i've ever met"


But whatever. :cwm34:

ugh. he's just so smarmy.

Never mind how he called the game (he put the cheese in salami and cheese), but he's just such a homer phony. Especially on his stupid FAN radio show - always describing himself as some straight shooter who tell's it like it is and then he would always state the company line about everything.

EDIT: only the fakest of all people say the kind of crap that he does. see the Wayne Embery and Tannenbaum examples.

Yeah, makes ya thank god we have Devlin now. He's neither a homer or a phony. :)

And saying Embry is one of the classiest guys he's ever met and Tanenbaum is a great human being. Gee what an ass.

Both Chuck and Matt are buffoons, but Chuck's buffoonery was a little easier to take. Devlin's just terrible. Punjabi!

powerfulpanda 01-16-2012 03:24 PM

yeah. i listened to the actual interview on the radio on saturday, i couldn't remember exactly what he said. but even reading his raptors blog back in the day, he'd say "best, most _________ person i've ever met in the game of basketball" about every person he touched on. just smarmy BS.

Devlin might be a hokey, cheesy idiot but he's SO much more professional than Chuck was. The fact he's contracted out to TNT for playoff games speaks to that.

of course. lol

JDMtors 01-16-2012 03:50 PM

I sorta miss his Salami and Cheese and Onions the most. But Devlin is starting to come alone and replace Swirsky

'trane 01-16-2012 03:52 PM

a tape recorder with random exciteable phrases could have replaced swirsky.

not really

Swirsky is on the radio in Chicago and Devlin is on TV in Toronto, does the playoffs on TNT and has covered the Olympics, MLB and the NFL . Do the math and then when you're done that, answer my question in the Calderon thread.

Chuck was a good person and always treated us fans with respect.

Yes, he was over the top sometimes, but I generally liked his game calling. He always gave the other teams credit when it was due.

Hope his kid gets better. Cant imagine what advantage there is being in the US with a sick kid. Just the same, I wish no ill will upon him.
