Jack is so much better and I rather listen to Leo talk then this dull scrub.

I personally dont enjoy Sherman at all, I cant even stand him on raptors today, he has a weird voice, never ever says anything interesting, and has no charisma or personality.

Sherm was surprisingly pretty neutral. Didn't blame the refs for the loss like Dev/Leo/Jack like to do.

Sherm as a colour guy would be like having an intern at the radio station be the radio colour guy. Or like having Alan Anderson as your SF down the stretch.

How about Devlin by himself? Its clear that none of the other guys can do a decent job. I'd rather have some dead air than somebody spewing garbage every second.

I kind of agree with this. I think people that like him now, only do so because they're so sick of Leo. I think Sherm's odd voice and bland tones will start to grate on people if he's given too big of a role. That being said, I'd take him over Leo any day. Leo is just the worst.

I especially hate how vague his commentary is sometimes

If and when Sherm gets promoted he will be given a script by the Raptors management

Then he'll turn into the same corporate puppets Jack/Leo/Matt/Eric/Paul are. Just a given
Im pretty sure these analysts have lots of knowledge, but they are not analysts when working for the raptors, they have to become cheerleaders. They are basically cheerleaders with basketball knowledge

The Poll should have another option: None of the above.

I thought Sherm was solid tonight! He should take Leo's job and have him a Jack split the games.

I like the guys on the Fan 590.

On TV, Shrem is good but I'll never say I don't like Jack, I enjoy his drunk perverted ways no homo. Leo can take a bath in hot garbage for all I care, he sucks.

Sherm is really no better than Leo. We've just heard him less.

If Smitch ever wanted to try it out I think he'd be awesome. He might only last like 20 games before saying something that would get him fired though. Smitch and Devlin would actually make a really good pairing on air I'm guessing. Of course it will never happen.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….
