We're getting new college football graphics this season, it seems     And it's more like the MNF graphics than ever, it seems.

No more musical performances during the Genesis Halftime Show.

I never like large graphics that hug the bottom of the screen with no gap. It feels so claustrophobic.   Don't they basically modify the NBA score graphic almost every season now? It seems a

American sports graphics continue to get bigger and bigger...

It's to make it easier for people watching on mobile devices to be able to read the graphics better. Smaller screens need bigger graphics.

I feel as if we are the only country following this trend though...compare our graphics to those in a country like England or Australia. Even TSN and Sportsnet in Canada have relatively smaller graphics to some of those here in the U.S.

If that's the case, it's time to figure out how to differentiate graphics feeds for mobile app streaming vs. TV. This sucks.

I'm just glad they haven't begun to stack scoreboards in the vertical video space to solely appeal to social media users.

Other than amazon having Thursday Night Football, why not go back when games were played on Saturdays after the end of College Football regular season. It is what NBC and CBS did in the 1970’s and 1980’s.. I like the current CBS/FOX Sunday afternoon games and NBC on Sunday night.

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 score box isn't that much different from what they had before.

It's OK, but could be better in my opinion.

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

Literally, ESPN needs to take a page from TSN when it comes to scorebugs.

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)

Couple of news today in the ESPN world:

 

ESPN and MLB reached a long-term extension for 7 years

And ESPN has reached a long-term agreement with Spain's La Liga for the next 8 seasons (through the 2028-29 season). The deal includes the broadcast rights in Canada on TSN and RDS. The new deal will kick starting in the 2021-22 season.

I'm surprised that ESPN did not get TV rights to the World Series, splitting with FOX.

 

Goodbye beIN Sports.

Yet another network that GOLtv, a network which pretty much carries niche Portuguese and South American soccer, has lasted longer than. They've outlived Fox Soccer, and now undoubtedly beIN.
