    The Loney Bowl (Atlantic Canada's conference championship college university football championship, which itself got delayed due to some drama, but the team who originally won by default won anyway) appears to have ripped off Fox's old NFL scoreboard.



    Also, on the same topic, the Canadian Bowl (our national junior football championship) ripped off ESPN's College Football logo (and I mean the current one) for its actual game logo.

    Would some text alignment hurt?

    How has WISC's knockoff of the Scripps package not come up?

    I would argue that in some ways it's a prettier package than the Scripps variant. The royal blue really works in their favor.

    It's not bad - and I will agree the blue is actually a really good color choice - but the tags could use some work in the animation department...

    I see that, and I raise you WJAX/WFOX's new graphics package.

    It's likely that package was designed by Renderon, the same company that did the Scripps package.

    It fits their style.

    A few people have contracts with Nexstar (as acquired from Young Broadcasting stations). RenderOn isn't one of them though.

    WISC has a very good in-house graphics department. Yeah, there might be some Renderon looking elements to the graphics, But this is more of a continuation of previous looks going back to more than 15 years.

    Certain parts, yes. The dynamic lower thirds and the designs of the fullscreens, but the backgrounds and animations are definitely "inspired" by the Scripps graphics


    The first scene of the weather open is a dead giveaway.

    I want to say that the way they handled the weather remote was interesting. I kind of like it.

    One thing I rarely ponder about is the need for the meteorologist to stand in front of the graphics. It would be one thing if they could stand in one place but they have to move around as they cover part of the maps.
