      Far worse, like Leo?

      Jack has grown on my. Matty D is fine but he's no Chuck.

      I remember being at the first Bulls game in Toronto after Swirsky left for Chicago. He was presented with something at half time and got a huge ovation. Pretty sure Noah blocked Bosh on the final possession for the win. (Might have been a different Bulls game I saw but pretty sure it was the same one).
      Chuck was all class. Almost everything about his broadcasting style was spot on. He made the games more exciting and engaged his color guy, just like a good play by play guy is supposed to do. He also had a great voice for it and that's important and often underrated or overlooked.

      I'm happy for him too. He moved somewhere foreign to him for an opportunity, built some great experience and then got to go home successful.

        Swirsky is a self involved trout sniffer who i'm glad is gone but i'd take him back if it meant getting rid of Leo

        Leo is far and away the worst. Ever.

          John Saunders was the best. It was criminal how they let him go

                ESPN ego also contributes to this ... They never want anyone to feel like they are bigger then the brand ...

                  Remember watching all those games on "The New VR"? Haha and CityTV for the first few seasons. "We are the NEW VR!" and they'd be showing people from like Parry Sound... hahaaha I miss the simples times once in a while.

                  And did they let Saunders go or was it that he was offered heftier paying gigs in the States again, paving the way for Chuck?

                    Saunders went on to work for ESPN and ABC, which is to say bigger bucks. The guy is 60 years old!
