Apparently the Raptors broadcasters didn't take to well to hansbrough/Valanciunas spill

The Raptors broadcasters didn't take well to anything. They *****ed and moaned on EVERY play. Very unpleasant to watch. Usually the bad teams' announcers can have some fun with the game, but these guys sounded like they had just been grounded by their moms. Easily the worst Pacers experience I've had this year.

The Raptors announcers are hilariously bad. They think any contact, regardless of going straight up, or who initiates it, etc, is a defensive foul. And they couldn't understand why Bargnani got called for an offensive foul when he shoved his defender in the chest.

That Bargnani on Hansbrough was stupid. JAck waas right, that asshat gets away with a ton. And I'm not sure why, he isn't even very good.

That fifth foul for Bargs could be called a foul, but not when the whistle is not blowing on anything else in the same game. Compare that to Hansborough wrestling move on Jonas. Which was the worse foul? And Hansborough gets away with so much similar shit, that its just a travesty he gets a call in that situation. And anyway there is much bigger contact when big guys are fighting for position in any game. Here they just decided to call that.

Devlin and Jack have started going about the refs a bit too much lately, but they are still not even close to the worst homers like the Boston guy.

And in this game I dont see how Pacers fans can complain about refs. We got screwed as much as they did. Look at the game thread. There are couple of pages full of blaming refs.

I think they only got like this, this season because of all the no calls by the refs, so now they just say so and so drove to the lane, missed, and no call.

Easily the most biased announcers. I swear the entire game all they do is complain about the refs.

matt and jack do complain way to much (mainly matt) and it does kind of get annoying, but at the same time, you cant really blame them with how awful some of the games have been officiated, honestly I think yesterdays game was worse officiated than any other game this season.

I'd say the Celtics announcers are worse.. but Matt and Leo are like that this season because the NBA refs have officially lost us at least 2 games. Head office even confirmed their mistakes. So of course they'll be more on the lookout to how the plays are called because its a recurring issue

I've heard Jack completely go off on the refs on Raptors today a couple times. Basically calling them hacks, saying that they've gotten rid of too many experienced officials in recent years and the newer guys are overwhelmed. He's been very harsh all season towards the refs.

I think its kinda funny when guys go off on how "stupid" or whatever the raps announcers are. I suggest they have a look on Google and check out their credentials. Leo Rautins, Jack, Armstrong, Matt Devlin, these guys all have serious cred and know what they are talking about.

As for being Homers. It's their job. They are telecasting to the Toronto media market. If all they did was sit up there playing the part of the super fair, non-biased announcer I think I'd throw up. Honestly. WTF.

Thank you! it really pisses me off when some all wise all knowing, wankers from the forum call them morons..
These guys know what they are talking about, Especially Jack and Leo. Sure they are homers at times, or gets annoying with some of the things they say. But to question their basketball understanding is ridiculous.

they treaded a little close to the Heinsohn line last night, but at the same time Indy fans, and I have experience sitting amongst a bunch of them, are the noisiest poor sports imaginable. It could be worse I suppose - they could be Atlanta fans, but still, I don't care what they think in these matters at all.

The thing is, Jack usually is NOT a homer. He's the one guy who will call out bad rotations by Casey ("we haven't seen Ed Davis for almost 8 minutes now"), stupid shots by players ("they didn't need that" "they could have got something better with more patience"). Or he'll call out a Raptor player for doing something bonehead, like not boxing out their man. He did that to Lowry last night when he tried to leak out on 3-point attempt and the shooter got an O-board.

When Jack goes off in a way that favours the Raps, there is usually a good reason for it. Now, Matt and Leo? They can be homers at times. Matt has a much different personality, in my opinion, when he announces for TNT during the playoffs. He cuts down on the cheese. Maybe Matt felt he had to have "personality" after following Swirsky, or maybe his producers and Raptor corporate affiliates told him to, I don't know. But he's a different guy. He exagerates positive raptor plays, and sometimes acts like we've been shot in the face over small reffing mistakes. He gets too Swirsy-esque sometimes. I still like Matt, though. A middle ground between Raptor Matt and TNT Matt would be nice.

yeah - I agree. I really barely notice these guys anymore though. I just tune them out. I do perk up when Jack points out something pertinent, but otherwise I just let the surround sound crowd noise sink in.

Ya I think Devlins gig with the team is different than the TNT stuff. When you are a teams guy you have to take on the role of cheerleader. Its a full time job. He has Jack or Leo there to do the rest.

I think we have good guys....I'm not huge on Homers, but I like a little bit.

Sure. But go and read through the game thread here and tell me it isn't 95% bitching, moaning, whining and complaining.
