2018 NFL Season

Recommended Posts

Though said music is a variation of CBS's normal NFL music (and arguably better)

 

Also speaking of CBS, Atlanta is using the current CBS graphics now, but with the CBS logo replaced with an NFL logo like the Yahoo game.

Dolphins have a package so basic, this would have been nice for a RSN nearly 2 decades ago.

This would look better if all of the text was vertically aligned.

Good God, WHY?

That looks unnecessary and awful. It didn’t need to be tweaked at all.

Whoever at ESPN is obsessed with fat italic 'athletic' fonts needs to be demoted. It looks like some knock-off package you'd see in a mobile app game that charges $1.99 to even kick the ball off.

Easily the ugliest sports graphics of this decade? I'd say so.

 

ESPN is so clueless as to what looks good. Flash back to 2014 when everything was so nice and elegant.

Or worse, a preseason game.

 

Having the downs arrow switch sides depending on direction is kinda clever (though they're not rendering the downs arrow on-field either).

 

It also doesn't auto-hide during plays anymore.

They actually discontinued the auto-hide starting with the Wild Card game this past January.

It's like they didn't have a full update ready, so just played with the font. For better or worse, they should have something brand new for season 50 next year, but at least it should be a cohesive design.

...you misspelled Fox...

Fox's graphics lose solely because of how bland the score graphic is and how much space it wastes.

 

Also, they're limited in the selection of team colors they can use in graphics because their fonts have no drop shadows or outlines, so they often have to use compromise background colors to make their text readable.

FOX's look doesn't do it for me for football. It's fine for the other sports but the lack of flair just doesn't work for football.

Watching NFL Network’s TNF pregame. Saw some inserts that used Fox’s standard graphics. I assume the game will be that way, too.

Yep. Standard Foxbox too. Surprised they didn’t make a TNF-specific package based off the standard Fox graphics like NBC and CBS did.

Hopefully this is just because it's a non-national game over-the-air and the new package is actually coming on their premiere. So far this is just a bog-standard Sunday game (except they're really making the case that Thursday football is lousy game wise). Also, this WJZ'esque production music is terrible.

As far as the production music prior to commercials, it's really no different than a standard Sunday Fox game. You only ever hear the Fox theme a few times after the game intro.

I don't think they'd unveil something new in Week 4(?) when the simulcast starts up.

 

I like the NFL on Fox graphics but was expecting some kind of cool combo/look like we've gotten in the past with CBS and NBC.
