Hey - did anybody else find the comentary in last night's game exceedingly annoying?? They bantered back and forth like idiots most of the game.

After Chuck made that call about Arch bleeding profusely, Leo spent the rest of the game trying to prove him wrong on everything he said. I just turned off the sound though!! Do you guys like Leo? He pisses me off most of the time, and he repeats the same criticisms game after game, sometimes with little relevance.

This thread seems a little familiar...



I didn't mind. Chuck thinks every call should go the Raptors way, and Leo has this notion that a player has to earn the respect of the refs every game. The Raptors will always get the short end of the stick in this league, we just have to work around it.

Chuck and Jack argue just as much. The difference is that Jack school's Chuck most of the time and they change the subject, rather than continue for an hour.

Leo get's kind of childish when he feels offended, he won't let thing go sometimes and keeps nagging. He's obviously touchy when the issue of his "Brunsonian" type carreer numbers are brought up by Chuck...seriously there comes a point when it takes away from their duty of calling the game and that point was reached far before the end of that game.

Leo's immature. It won't be surprised if he's long gone before his contract runs through.

I don't like Leo, I think he's kind of mean and arrogant. I much prefer to listen to the voice of the Raptors, Chuck, and of course, Mr. Hello! Jack.

Damn i missed it...that sounded pretty entertaining...I like them both calling the games but Swirsky has to be WAY more 2 sided to the games...he shouldnt just call it as a raptors fan point of view..i know hes payed to call a RAPTORS GAME...But look at the rest of announcers in NBA/Other sports...they tend to call the game for both teams..I like watching it on TSN...When the announcing is 2 sided...When both the announcers talk about both teams offence and defence...I know LEO still announcers for the TSN version but he dosent argue with the guy who does it with him on TSN

i love the enthusiasm that chuck brings with each game he calls, and Leo balances him out quite nicely. i enjoy their little "spats", and think they make a great combination.

after hearing some other commentators (esp the ones in boston), you really appreciate who we have here in toronto.
