  1. On a side note, it looks like Sportsnet is going to be getting a new NHL set next season; it looks smaller and more conventional in comparison to their current one (which is located at the CBC's headquarters; this one is going to move back to Rogers' Toronto building, so this is probably a cost-cutting move).
  2. So it seems like they're patching the scoreboard to have the lower area be transparent. A little better
  3. CBC News Network recently got new graphics and, well... I can see bits and pieces of The National's package rubbing off on it, but how they've laid out the bottom bars and L3s seems a little weird. I almost expect the colored bar (here orange for the morning show, though more yellowish in other rolling news programming) to do something like the old Gannett graphics with the rundown...
  4. Golf Channel's airing an LPGA tournament from Asia with a different host production, and unfortunately their automated ticker is getting in the way of some of their graphics positioning. Though curiously I noticed that said graphics actually use the normal NBC Sports fonts, even though they're not what they usually use. If they were aware enough they were going to be on Golf Channel by the fonts alone, you'd think they would have pushed that one graphic up a bit more just in case?
  5. Someone on Twitter claimed this was a focus group design for TNT that NBC was apparently "testing" for them (though it matches up more with NBC's current inserts/etc. for the NHL. I bet it's probably going to be like Sportsnet's scoreboard but skinned to look like the March Madness one or something, I don't know), but they also claimed this was the worst-received design, so it may be coincidence more than anything.
  6. Well this is easily going to be one of the shortest-lived graphics packages in sports history...
  7. In my opinion, this would probably be a good time for AT&T SN/Root to have stronger synergies with Turner Sports. Unify the productions more like (previously) Fox and NBC had historically done on their RSNs. I'm personally shocked they haven't really done anything to tie them together more since the AT&T/Time Warner purchase. In fact, TNT's Latin American division may actually have the answer already: This doesn''t redeem how ugly TNT's current logo is, but using their wordmark like that is honestly clever enough,
  8. That throwback to their early-90's design is way better than the "I just learned how to use Photoshop 2.0" logo they had before, which I'm shocked they kept for that long.
  9. Well, it's not a screen-wasting monstrosity. Has a similar feel to ESPN's seventeenth NBA scoreboard from a few seasons ago.
  10. NCAA tournaments are getting a new graphics scheme Though, I don't know how much of this will be used in-game; they've typically used the inserts in parallel with whatever their "default" graphics were (i.e. the old white boxes one; the FCS college football tournament and the women's basketball tournaments have just used whatever the CFB/CBB package is)
  11. And unsurprisingly, that new NFLN scoreboard I caught on the Senior Bowl is the World Feed scoreboard.
  12. It appears NFLN finally stopped using the old Thursday Night Football graphics for the odd college games they air (the Senior Bowl; it looks like they quietly dropped out of their apparent Conference USA deal).

    In Memoriam

    Warren Woods, a Saskatchewan sportscaster (previously with STV/Global Regina) and radio host, died from COVID-19 complications yesterday at the age of 66 https://awfulannouncing.com/international/canadian-sportscaster-warren-woodsy-woods-passes-away-at-66-after-battle-with-covid-19.html
  14. NBA got the new graphics too for Raptors games; basically the same layout as before, but moved to the bottom-left. That placement isn't very good, to be honest, but at least it's not a monstrosity like the American Mothership
  15. Meanwhile north of the border, TSN is finally rolling out a new insert graphics package, and unlike last time they had a major graphics update (last decade, where it took at 2-3 years for them to actually roll out every element since they only seemed to update the scoreboards at first, and then only use the new L3s/etc. around the 2013 Grey Cup, and then on SportsCentre after they got a set update). Unsurprisingly, it's flat and boxy, and we also have "pane" L3s too. The World Junior Hockey Championships pre-tournament games tonight appear to be the first in-game use of them. The s
