The entire blog is a dummy's guide to brown nose/asskiss. He sounds so fake with his words, trying desperately to get fans on his side. The part where he writes "We arrived back in the States with Canadian flags for the boys along with Raptors and Leafs t-shirts. And we’re busy teaching the boys “O Canada”, which they’ve taken to quickly! " was what did it for me. Eww. Covering wrestling?

Chill out brebre82, how can you cast judgement so fast?
-maybe he's the kind of guy who likes to go on road trips with his family and sing "wheels on the bus" too...doesn't make him fake, maybe just goofy. liiike the Swirsk?
Anyway, I can't talk because I don't know Devlin...but give him a shot, he seems to have lots of enthusiasm for the game...

i liked his blog, he seemed honest and excited, Im gonna try and get behind this and I plan on sending him an email this afternoon actually. He seems like a nice fit for us. I also like the fact he has a long history with Jack which is great for chemistry calling games. This is good news I think.

did chuck not kissass as well?. I dont think that its important who much *** he kisses, as long as he sounds good and knows what hes talking about. I just hope that he is not bland as the other 90% of American play-by-play guys are.

If he's a good announcer, don't really mind it.

Dude you need to relax! Chuck is gone and he is not comming back. Give this dude a chance. Chuck was the world biggest kissass!! This guy says a few good things about the organization and the country and you rip on him....real classy. I guess you would rather him say Canada sucks and MLS can go to hell. I loved Chuck but seriously move on, sounds like you just got dumped or something.

I have to admit I didn't read his blog, but as for funny stories and all that Swirsk stuff ... I'll be just as happy if the new guy is more basketball and a LOT LESS salami and cheese. I love Chuck because of the upstanding guy he is, but I would prefer to have an announcer not bring such a schtick to the game. If Devlin is a good basketball man without all the goofiness I'll be a happy listener.

Give the guy a break. If we were in his shoes, we would do the same thing by sucking up to your audiences.
