  1. Really liking the new graphics and scorebug for Monday Night Football on ESPN. Not only did they go back to the neon feel, but it's much more improved and cleaned up. And on top of that, they removed the yellow venom which is a step up. Not surprised tho that they kept the same bottom bar layout taking up the whole screen. Given that they will broadcast Super Bowl LXI in 2027 and since they have a common pattern of changing up their look every 4 years, it wouldn't surprise me if they wait until that Super Bowl to make any dramatic changes to the scorebug as well as their entire graphics look.
  2. First tease for CBS's upcoming broadcast of Super Bowl LVIII seen in the NFL Copyright id before the start of every game this past Sunday. Not sure why it took me so long to notice this, but this is the first Super Bowl network logo to have CBS Sports in it. Not just the original CBS logo. Probably to imply their game will have two feeds with Nickelodeon doing a separate broadcast. Obviously no hints they will debut a new graphics package yet since this graphic is the same exact template they used for Super Bowl LV. I would think they will rebrand since their scorebug is aged out the most compared to all the other NFL broadcasters.
  3. It's no secret Nexstar is likely running tight budget with The CW since they are trying to make the network profitable again. So it makes sense they wouldn't want to go over budget just to create a full graphics package for their College Football telecasts in a month and a half. They'll eventually do their own graphics package when they get to year 2 of the ACC telecasts. They just need more time to create a full graphics package. You can't rush perfection, unless you're willing to pay a lot for it.
  4. I don't think so. They used the Bally graphics when this package aired on Bally Sports last season. Plus, they are using their own full screen graphics and their own theme music. My guess is, given they announced this deal Mid-July, they probably didn't have enough time to put together a full graphics package since they only had a month and a half to make it happen. Using the ESPN inserts is probably just temporary for this year or maybe just a few months. Curious to see how this will work for ACC Basketball since ESPN have a different graphics look for College Hoops. I wonder if they will do the same thing there.
  5. Saw this promo by ESPN advertising their Week 1 Monday Night Football game. Looks like they will debut a new updated logo for MNF this year. This obviously means they will have a new graphics package this year right? Curious to see what they will do. Wouldn't be shocked if they did a remastered version of the 2006 scorebug. They technically we're the first to do a bottom center scorebug way before it became a on-going trend for other broadcasters in 2020.
  6. Sneak peek at the studio setup location outside. Sounds like they are only doing two studio setups for game day coverage instead of three. This set looks like a downgrade compared to when they broadcasted Super Bowl LIV in 2020. Looks smaller than what they did before. At least the backdrop will look awesome for the camera shots.
  7. Not a shock, FOX Sports is still using their recent football graphics package as part of their Super Bowl week coverage. Looks like they are going to wait til game day to do a full reveal. They did this the last time they broadcasted the Super Bowl in 2020. NBC and CBS have also done the same thing in the past two years prior when it comes to waiting til game day to launch their new graphics.
  8. The insert graphics changed yes, but not the full screen graphics. These are the graphics I'm talking about. This design was introduced in 2017, they slightly changed it in 2020 only to adapt to the new insert graphics that debuted at Super Bowl LIV. But nothing major changed.
  9. Yeh, the current graphics package has aged pretty well. I wouldn't mind if they just go with a refreshed look. Similar to what CBS did for Super Bowl LIII. However, here is a few reasons why I think they they would do a full rebrand... or at least a big noticeable refresh. 1. Their graphics font ties into the old Thursday Night Football logo. Now that FOX no longer has TNF, I would think they would want to launch a new brand identity away from their old primetime package. 2. Their College Football broadcasts this past season still used the same graphic package for the 6th straight season. This is probably because they are waiting to do a full rebrand for all their football broadcasts with Super Bowl LVII as the launching point. 3. If you pay attention to other FOX Sports broadcasts, you can see their lower thirds are starting to go full screen again instead of floating. The NFL broadcasts are the only graphics left that still use floating lower thirds. It's possible they are just keeping that same look for the NFL and waiting to make that big change when they broadcast the Super Bowl. As you can see here...
  10. This is what their opening matchup graphic looked like last year. They also used this design during the regular season up until the Playoffs this year.
  11. Yesterday with FOX's broadcast of the NFC Championship, they showed a new matchup graphic at the start of their broadcast. The rest of the broadcast pretty much used the same graphics package they have been using since 2020. Is this possibly a teaser to a new graphics package debuting at Super Bowl LVII? This new matchup design looks a little out of brand to their current package. The logos are very shiny and if you look closely, there is diagonal lines showing in the background of the team logos. Normally, I wouldn't think this would be a teaser. But after looking back at their past opening matchup graphics, they look completely different. So this definitely confirms the graphic used here is brand new.
  12. As part of their NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs coverage, the NHL officially made their debut on TBS. All of the graphics (not just the scorebug) had the TNT logo replaced with TBS. Even the main broadcast logo was changed. This is the first time I've seen Turner Sports go all out for this since they started broadcasting the March Madness Tournament. Another thing to note, they actually used the entire TBS logo in all elements of the broadcast. Usually, they only use the letters like they have for the MLB and March Madness broadcasts.
  13. Amazon has announced their first Thursday Night Football telecast will be a Week 2 matchup between the Chargers and Chiefs. Sounds like there will be no preseason broadcast this year but things could change.
  14. Another new team the Bay Area Panthers is owned by Marshawn Lynch. Their broadcasts are produced by KBCW. The graphics on these broadcasts look a lot more brighter and has the score bug at the bottom.
