Default How annoying are Matt & Jack on a scale of 1-10?

They have made Raptors games about them instead of the team.

I like Jack's rants about players, but once they go off topic, they don't seem to come back anytime soon. As I'm posting, they are doing exactly that. It kinda inspired this thread. It's still going about some phone and sh*t...

They have to though. The team is bad, so they have to try and be entertaining. As much as people like us enjoy watching the development of a young team, there's way more casual fans who don't.

It's precisely why the Raps brought in Swirsky so many years ago... the team was bad, and they needed entertainment value in the broadcast. Its a shame ol' Swirsk had to go when he started foolin' around on his wife (allegedly), or else it might not be so bad.

But they're not entertaining.

I guess maybe you're right. I got tired of Swirsk late (when he was about to leave). He became really homer-happy, and that annoyed me. I like commentators who talk about the game; like the clippers duo...

Why do you think he was so quick to depart?

He left suddenly, with no notice, and returned to Chicago to be home with his family, literally a month after he got his Canadian citizenship.

Scuttlebutt was that we was fooling around with someone within Rogers, got caught, and was given an ultimatum to either leave or be left. I've heard this from a couple people who are in TO radio.

Yeah, I'm not defending their lack of entertainment value... totally agree there... I'm just giving some rationale as to why they're distracting from what's going on on the floor.

Swirsk was doing some sick, wicked, and nasty things.

I could make a salami and cheese joke as well but I'll hold off on it.

I buy your reasoning, I just don't like Devlin...

Love Jack. Hate Matt, with a passion (and he has been bringing Jack down to his level).

They are very good together, in comparion to Matt and Leo. Now that hurts, big time.

They are both paid homers, but Jack has some basketball knowledge. I wish he was part of the Raptors coaching staff so he teach somebody how to deliver a hard foul.

Agree with the above about the Jack being on the coaching staff part. I'd much rather if he ranted to the players instead of to me, cuz I stopped caring about what he was saying a long long time ago.

Jack over Leo for sure.. but out of ten, I give Leo a 10, Jack a 9.5 and Devlin a 9.

Leo and Jack basically go on the same rants every single game at the obvious times, but Jack is generally more knowledgeable. They both irritate the hell out of me though.
