I'd have to agree.

Everytime I watch the Raptors pre-game (on Sportsnet or RaptorsTV), everything goes fine, but when it's on the Score, Adnan Virk insists on jumping onto the broadcast halfway through and completely taking things over. **** off, eh?

Don't worry they will give Norma a shot before they give one to Adnan

I guess everyone likes different things. I agree with you 100%, but it was also how I felt to hear Swirsky's random sayings...mojo, salami, onions etc etc etc

But that's just me, no disrespect to those who liked him.

Speaking of Norma, why exaclty what she let go again? My mom asked me a couple days ago because her and Norma knew each other growing up (they went to school together I think).

I appreciate whoever gives me an answer as to why exactly she was let go. I could probably just look it up, but I am too lazy.

I have no idea why Norma was let go, I didn't really like her anyways, no offence if your mom is still friends with her. Not that I like the new girl either, she's easier to look at, but she seems like she's 12 years old.


Back to the Chuck situation, I think more and more everyday that it will be Eric Smith doing theplay by play. He does the play by play on the FAN590, as Chuck did before he got his promotion, and he is already employed by RaptorsTV (Double Dribble, etc.), it would seem like a logical choice.

I bump this thread up because today is officially the last day of Chuck in Toronto. Good luck to Chuck and his family in Chicago!

(I'm listening to the last Chuck's Show on FAN590 to see who will permanently replace his afternoon spot. Jack Armstrong?)

Yes, it is true. Jack will take over Chuck's spot, almost.....

Nelson Millman, FAN590 boss just announced on Chuck Swirsky's Show that Jack Armstrong will have his radio show at 2-4 spot while Doug Faraway will take the rest of afternoon spot at 1-2.

"HELLOOO!"

Which new girl are you talking about? I don't see a new girl on Raptors TV.

Swirsky will be missed. Just watching some old Raptor games with the team that won the playoff series against da Knicks ---Boogie, Oak, AD, Wince. Different era...teams come and go...but Swirsky was the one constant. It's gonna be weird not having him call games.

There was a new girl during the second half of the season that pretty much did the same job as Norma. I can't recall her name, tried looking her up on the website but they didn't have any Staff Biographies. I like what you said about teams come and go but Chuck was the one constant, so true.
