  1. https://deadline.com/2020/06/fox-ssports-sells-rights-united-states-golf-association-u-s-open-nbc-sports-1202972535/ That didn't last long. US Open is back on NBC.
  2. Sportsnet just made a big hire: Chris Cuthbert. He used to be TSN's lead NHL commentator, and also did CFL games. He used to be with CBC and Hockey Night until 2005, so this is somewhat of a return for him.
  3. Upon further review (of highlights I've seen from other games), those "world" graphics actually are used by one of the domestic broadcasters: from what I read, the owners of SPOTV are producing the feeds ESPN is using, and this is also affecting their choice of games (since it's drawing from the games they've been allotted domestically). SPOTV itself has a black version of them, but SPOTV 2 is the one the ESPN graphics are based on.
  4. Yeah, the "world" scoreboard appears to be a lighter/more colorful version of Fox's basic design (though with the Asian broadcasters' preference for using dots for the count instead of numbers).
  5. ESPN's picked up some Korean baseball, airing nightly throughout the season. Of course their very first game is in a rain delay... They appear to be using the MLB graphics for studio inserts, but in-game seems to be some sort of world graphics that actually look pretty sharp too
  6. Noticed NBC changed up the graphics they've been using for the COVID coverage, MSNBC included. They look a lot more like the election graphics, and I honestly wouldn't mind if they kept this look full-time because its pretty sharp.
  7. Those WSB graphics are giving me a real sports vibe for some reason. Probably the BIG ITALIC FONTS a la Fox/ESPN
  8. This ranks right up with WPEC/WGFL and the American Sports Network set in the "sports studios temporarily being used for local newscasts" department. The only overtly-baseball related thing is the platform the desk is on.
  9. Atlantic University Sport really likes Fox's old NFL scoreboard. In fact it's rather interesting to see on basketball...
  10. Honestly if they do anything, I bet they'll just take the new O&O graphics and paste their existing colors into it (I still think they have the best look in the entire market so I don't think they should mess with it too much).
  11. I begin to wonder if they could just go back to the name "FSN" but not have the F stand for Fox...
  12. Chris Matthews just announced that he is retiring from Hardball.
  13. Sportsnet got a new L-bar for its trade deadline coverage: they are continuing to phase in flatter graphics (first the MLB scoreboard/inserts, then NHL promos), but still not throwing the switch on a full-on redesign yet (which is quite awkward given their existing graphics were starting to already look dated when they debuted)
  14. SNY has new graphics for Mets games and, honestly, they feel a lot more NBC-like than in the past (specifically the fonts). Honestly, I wouldn't mind if this were to just become the NBC Sports default with some tweaks,
  15. As someone who's had to watch the Blue Jays, I'm used to having a scoreboard along the bottom (though Sportsnet switched to a corner box last season). They seem to have some of the WGN "DNA" here and there. Also judging from pictures on Twitter, ticker but no bug. The ticker is bright silver too, which is a bit worrisome.
