    +1 i agree. The old clippers dude for example. His catch phrases are fucking annoying, "Butler for three, BINGO!" like stfu. Biggest homer ever
    Close but the biggest homer has to be Tommy Heinshorn. Nothing makes a Celtics blowout even less enjoyable than the local feed...

    I'm not picky when it comes to commentators. Devlin isn't nearly as annoying as some of the guys other teams have doing play by play

    Kevin Colabro and Jack armstrong would make a legendary commenting duo. Maybe the raps would even start winning

    I've never hated anyone as much as I hate Matt "company man" Devlin. He's terrible and I sometimes wonder how much he actually knows about basketball. Leo is a close second.

    If I were one of these billionaire fan owners I'd pay hubie brown whatever he wanted to do Raps games.
    And bring Dan Shulman back to TSN.

    I don't have a bad word for either jack or leo, I value their insight, but I prefer jack armstrong. Devlin's excuse making when things are going particularly badly rub me the wrong way. No homo.

    I honestly like Matt Devlin, especially whenever he's on TSN with Jack, it's lively, and fun to listen during the broadcast.

    Leo is the Andrea Bargnani of colour commentary.

    1,2,4 I feel you man, but you (not me unfortunately) are still going to watch the next game. They can't just come out and call it the way they see it because the casual fan (bless them) doesn't realize how complete utter wastes we are at times and anything to suggest that (even the truth) is not acceptable, they are trying to package the product in a way that appeals to the uninformed and people who know little about the franchise.

    #3....My guess is b/c before tristan thompson, leo rautins was the highest drafted canadian (at pick 17), and that may hold some weight to the ppl old enough to remember that (certainly not me). He is also less ugly than jack, so that's a +1 in the media business.

    And personally I don't understand the leo hate. Sure he singles people out, but it makes for a nice change from devlin who is too much of a homer. He also makes fun of devlin, which I like. Oh yeah I don't like matt devlin.
    Who cares about how Leo looks or if he looks better than Jack Armstrong. He keeps spewing the same BS everytime "don't bite on fakes". Jack Armstrong is not only funny but the dude knows his ball. And his Signature "Get that Garbage outta here" is legendary. Leo Rautins is a bum
