    Well the state is both connected to Missouri and Texas. Plus they don't even have that much pro sport teams, aside from the Oklahoma City Thunder. Even with that, I don't think a lot of people seem keen with just rooting for the Thunder in Oklahoma.

    So Oklahoma is like southern Missouri, where many people root for the Cardinals (or Royals)?

    I agree and I'm the same way as most Oklahomans I'm not keen on just rooting for the Oklahoma Sooners, Oklahoma State Cowboys or even the Oklahoma City Thunder for that matter and yes although not all of Oklahoma roots for the Cardinals here's the regions in which they root for these MLB teams:

    Southern Oklahoma (Ark-La-Tex, Sherman-Ada and Wichita Falls-Lawton):

    All root for the Texas Rangers

    Western Oklahoma/Oklahoma Panhandle (West of U.S 81):

    Roots for the Texas Rangers

    Central Oklahoma and Eastern Oklahoma (OKC and Tulsa):

    Split between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals (50-50 in the OKC area) while the Tulsa Metro area mostly roots for the Cardinals

    Northern Oklahoma:

    50-50 between the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals

    Btw there is Royals mixed in there with the Rangers/Cardinals in Central and Eastern Oklahoma but it's mostly Rangers/Cardinals territory in that part of Oklahoma

    That seems like a lot of Oklahomans who root for the Rangers. I thought it would be half Cardinals/half Rangers, but I guess people in Oklahoma like the spirit of Texas much more.

    I think OKC tends to be a little bit more Rangers but you can certainly find Cardinals gear in the OKC metro area, head up Interstate 44 to Tulsa and you may find Rangers and Royals gear here in there but for the most part it's all Birds On the Bat.

    I think Tulsa tends to support the Missouri teams more than they do the Dallas teams while Oklahoma City tends to support the Dallas teams more than they do the Missouri teams. I live halfway between OKC and Tulsa so here I say it's 50-50 between supporting Dallas teams (minus the Mavericks) and the Missouri teams (mainly Chiefs and Cardinals)

    Looks like on the hockey score bug, the shots have been moved into the main banner itself next to the score Screen Shot 2017-10-12 at 7.39.13 PM.png Screen Shot 2017-10-12 at 7.39.49 PM.png

    The old graphics aren't dead yet. The FIFA World Cup draw used the old graphics.

    Possible that the world wide Fox Sports operations are still using that generation of graphic presentation.

    Thought we would get our first look at the new graphics for motorsports with the Monster Energy Supercross season opener last night. Unfortunately they decided to keep rolling with the old package.

    Yeah, they tend to wait for NASCAR to launch new graphics. Last time graphics switched, I believe even the 24 Hours of Daytona kept the old graphics, and the new graphics launched with the first NASCAR practice session at Daytona in February.

    And, unsurprisingly, this seems to be the case.

    Plus we have an ARCA race earlier; that ended up showing off how awkward their vertical sidebar was, so hopefully they don't goof things up.

    I think they just do the sidebar for qualifying.

    And I was talking more about this silly thing that only lasted a few days or so.

    Oh well they shouldn't do that with this graphics package. I think they learned not to mess things up after that incident lol.

    NO WAY.

    NO WAY.

    THEY DID.

    For the record, this makes the previous one look like the lesser of two evils.

    Why create a graphics package that kills 15% of the picture?! If you get something in that left side and it's missed because we just had to know who was in 16th place, that's pretty darned dumb.

    Fox's racing graphics has gotten horrible by each update, I don't know who does the racing graphics but someone needs to be fired because the way it looks now is horrible (worse than the 2014-17 graphics)
