John Forslund is no longer under contract with the Hurricanes because ownership severely lowballed him, so he will be more free to work more of NBC‘s games. He will not be a part of any Fox Sports Car

I agree. I haven't watched an RSN for anything except live sports since the mid-2000s when they still had better peripheral content. The minute the game is over, I tune away.

Dear NBA Network:   STOP VERTICALLY COMPRESSING YOUR FEED TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR TICKER. IT'S 20-FREAKING-20!   Thanks.

All everybody knows what to do is to just copy ESPN's ticker. No original thought here whatsoever.

It's just too bad that people who are creating these tickers are just having absolutely ZERO thought in terms of being original.

 

I guess the networks think it's okay to plagarize what ESPN originally did with the ticker.

I wonder if this could be a preview of a possible new NHL scorebug next season for NBC.

I wouldn't be surprised if these graphics rear their head during the playoffs, especially with Bettman confirming that the stat-tracking technology will find its way into the playoffs this year.

NEW NBA on TNT- Tuesday nights premiered last night with Shaq, D-Wade, Candace Parker and Adam Lefkoe. A double dose of the NBA association on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Very good for TNT). This show is a spinoff from the recently cancelled players only show on NBA TV.  Although I like the originality of inside the NBA (Thursday nights), this Tuesday night edition of Inside the NBA may look pretty promising.

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)

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.

Also worth noting that he occasionally does commentary for NBC's NHL coverage as well.

This has a chance of looking good on TV. I begin to wonder if they'll put in the digital ad replacement on the boards like they did during the All-Star Game.

NBC released their commentary and production details for the upcoming NHL return.

 

John Forslund is no longer under contract with the Hurricanes because ownership severely lowballed him, so he will be more free to work more of NBC‘s games. He will not be a part of any Fox Sports Carolinas broadcasts. Ends a 20+ year run with the franchise if an agreement can’t be reached.

Is there a reason why the Flames-Jets game was on both NHL Network and NBC? Was it because of overlap with Washington vs. Tampa Bay?

 

Yeah they're showing games that fall between the Noon and 4PM windows as "bonus coverage" after the Noon game is over. Easy way to fill programming.
