Durkin should have retired 5 years ago. Never calls a photo correctly and uses the nonsense too close to call when a head separates them. Warkentin awful, Denman awful, Salice great and Collmus good as well. Battaglia Yikes and Ayers Ratliffe geez. Maybe if Jimmy toned it down a bit and tried not to talk down to others or exaggerate proper announciation then he would be decent? Just Sayin. thumbs up


Durkin has a condition called ACUTE PLEGMACOCKIS

at least 2 calls per card he is overcome with massive amounts of phlegm in his trachea >>>.would hate to be sitting below the callers booth in NY

It seems an announcer is not important now as they were before simulcasting. Simulcast outlets now have banks of televisions with no volume. Besides the 15 people attending live, who are they actually announcing to? horsemen?

You are so right. While I think JW is a good announcer, there is an excellent announcer, Gary Guy who calls races at Flamboro, Georgean Downs, and Grand River. If you add the attendance at all those tracks and factor in who is listening, its probably in the single digits.
