  • Devlin calls CFL now!?

    I'm watching the argos/als game and I've yet to see him. But, the guy sure sounds a whole hell of a lot like Devlin.

    Ok, just popping up on screen now and confirmed it is indeed Devlin alongside Glen Suitor.

    TSN must be seriously short staffed from the olympics and such because belive it or not. He's more brutal than when he calls a raps game.

    It seems "touchdown" is a four-syliable word!

    I've never watched football and I don't really like the sport, but I might just tune in to hear Devlin for the kicks.

      Does anybody else hate Devlin? Ok not hate, but I strongly dislike his way of commentating. I think he's tied fpr worst in the league with the Clippers guy, bring back Dan Shulman!

      P.S. - Not too fond of Leo Rautins either.

        i'm sorry could you not sense the strong negativity and disgust in my statement?

        let me put it simply

        he's fucking horrid!

        I've not come acroos a single person who "likes" devlin's commentating. some will say he's alright, but that's as positive at it gets.

        He strongly gets outshined for the general hate people have for leo rautins as a waste of fresh air.

          He's too unnatural, doesn't have that sexy Marv Albert flow of moving on to a next topic or makin nice hype calls. Please fire him along with Leo and Herbie Kuhn. Sorry Herb, not feeling you.

                Chuck is the best! He always returns my emails when I get down to sending him messages. I take it he's always loyal to fans trying his best to reply to all messages alike.

                    I am on board for that. Guy called everything on spot.

                    I want Chuck back, guy is too good to be doing radio commentating.

                    Is it just me, but when Chuck left, we started losing games?

                      Whoa... Let's not get personal now... The argos may not get a lot of love in TO, but there are committed CFL fans across the country. As a fan of both the Riders and the Raps, I that that you would find way way more Rider fans than Raps fans across Canada.

                      In fact, I doubt that it's even close...


                      And yes... Matt wasn't awesome at calling tonite's game... However, I doubt if he has watched much CFL. In that sense, I guess he did allright...

                        I think Chuck left mostly for family reasons. I think for some reason, he had to be in the Chicago area. At least, that's what I remember, because I know he liked it in Toronto as he became a Canadian citizen, no?

                          Just to say I don't find Devlin offensive or anything. Kind of comically bad, like he stumbled ass-backward into this job with no qualification. At the same time, I prefer him over Chuck...what an overenthusiastic knob....the only reason he lasted so long in Toronto was his connection to the VC years and his salami and cheese line. Again, Chuck I found actively bad, always trying to sound smarter than his partner, more enthusiastic than fans, when really he's just a douche. Matt seems more sincere, even if sometimes it's sincerely stupid and inadequate...

                            I will say this about Chuck though, especially compared to Devlin, at least he had pretty good general sports knowledge. Always did a better job filling dead time with things like that

                              I am on record as being a huge swirsky fan. Yes he was a knob, but he was our knob. And I do think that he added wins to our teams when he was the commentator. Someone should sleep with his wife so they break up and we get get them back. I vote Heinz!
