Kinda expected with the switch to NBC Sports Network coming next week, but if you put on Versus right now there's a new scorebug for their NHL coverage. Could see it carry over to NBC for both the NHL and NFL come next week

Oops, posted this in the game thread.

New NHL on NBC graphic package. I like it! Simpler, reminds me of early 2000s NBC Sports. They've stopped spelling out city names, which was nice, because "Philadelphia" was always kind of hard to fit in. Still don't think they need the logos or colors next to the abbreviations. That's not information we need.


To that I would add that they still need to get rid of the ugly NFL on NBC font in a few spaces: pretty sure I saw in on the "scoring chances" dropdown, and there it is again when showing Pierre McGuire. Also, they still need to get rid of Pierre McGuire.
Indeed the perception of hockey outside of Canada can be cruel as the world sees it as a bunch of thugs on skates fighting each other while a band of drunken hooligans watch and it only matters during the Winter Olympics even though nobody really cares about that version of the Olympics.

Get rid of the logos and all that space around "1st." You can take a third of the width off the scorebar and have even more unadorned screen.

Nice little goal animation. Also nice that the Caps scored!

EDIT: The penalty clocks are really bad. Too compressed next to the game clock (guess that's what the space is for, huh). They look better when they're beneath the power-play team.

I actually really like the penalty clock. Leaves the space under the team to provide info even during power plays, limiting the anount of animations in the process.

I like it except for the space between 1st and the time remaining but other than that It's pretty good.

Without Pierre McGuire, this:

becomes this:

and would be known as one of the greatest goal calls of all time.

It's like watching the hellish undead creakily shuffling their way out of the flames of a liposuction clinic dumpster fire.

Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

The current NBC look is just too overused now. I think it might be original from when NBC SNF launched!

The FSN channels seemed to have taken a page from the NHL on NBC's idea of using the full city name on the scoring bugs. They're doing that for their respective teams' broadcasts.

Yea, and personally, I think it sucks. FSN's whole graphics package has pretty regularly gone downhill over the past decade. I think their best look in recent memory was the one-liner scoreboard at the top with the regular block font, and city abbreviations. But I guess they have to constantly change things to keep things fresh, so I can't really blame them.

This is a lateral for me. I see the differences, it's just not enough for me to like or dislike it. The space around the period number is a bit of a distraction though.

I don't like the bulkier scoreline, but other than that full upgrade.

One thing I didn't like was 'SHOOTOUT' spanned the whole time/period area (I liked that particular part) but the 'FINAL/SO' was scrunched all the way to the right of that part (where the time/PP would be).
