    Just watch the game on mute.. that's what I do.

    Rautins has been annoying since day 1. As have Matt and Jack.. they are all annoying. But MLSE and the Raptors like them because they're not controversial and get the job done.
    Yeah, Leo games are mute button games. Even the Matt and Jack games can devolve into mute sometimes.

    I do have to unmute for off the ball fouls sometimes, although if one of them is in the middle of some cornball story, they often won't stop to say what happened anyway.

    The weird thing about Leo, is that in some situations, he actually has new, insightful things to say (in interviews, Open Gym episodes, etc.). But for some reason, he dumbs it down during live broadcasts.

    He tries to be colorful when he needs to be bland dull grey. It just doesn't work for him... How many cringe moments has he produced...

    I do feel as though sometimes the Raptors production team is trapped in 2001 in terms of dumbing down the broadcast into very simple bullet points each game, though, fairness, almost all sporting events are now announced this way, which is why play-by-play and color commentary for games is generally so bad for real fans of the sport/team.

    Guys.. Matt and Jack are some of the best commentators in the NBA. They are exciting, reasonable, and coherent.

    I think Leo has been reading this thread today. For some reason he hasn't been that bad and both him and Matt have done decent on the analysis side of it as well.

    ... Still can't tell if you're being Sarcastic or not ... Haha

    I can't stand Matt and Jack. Jack less so. He's just a crazy old man. But Matt ... Ugh ... can't stand the guy.

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    How many times did Matt say we've lost 5 of 6? Had the mute on most of the game but I still heard it twice.

    Have the Raptor broadcasts ever had a telestrator?

    I can't do mute especially for a home game..the energy from that crowd in the 4th quarter was awesome

    I don't mind any of them anymore. They're like a warm, fuzzy, even if sometimes off-putting, Raptors blanket.

    Hahaa. I didn't know this. I think I'll age like Jack in a few years if Raps can't win the ring...

    Same here. I was reading Republicans posts for the last 2 minutes(lol), and I gotta say y'all care too much about our TV crew. We're pretty good. GET OVER IT. Leo, Jack, Matt. We're better than most franchises. Keep it up lads. And if you still think we suck, watch Rockets or Cavs coverage.
