Watching old NBA and NFL games on Youtube is annoying though especially during the 70's when they didn't tell you the down and distance, either hear the announcer or you're left in the dust.. I know back in the day people use to say "Hey man, what's the score?" when walking into the room but that doesn't happen anymore.

 

Recently I came across an article about NBC losing the AFC which stated that Dick Ebersol refused to keep anything on the screen because people wouldn't stay tuned if they always knew the score. That mentality made it all the way to 1997.

Not that it was a surprise to me, but it is nice to see the FS locals using the MLB graphics. I also noticed in the transition overlays that it's basically the postseason graphics tailored to the team color (FS Midwest uses Cardinals red, for instance).

That's true NBC didn't do that until 2003 with Arena Football

Turner got a new set for their March Madness coverage. Looks great, and I love the "memories" written on the floor.

Also, from the looks of it, CBS and Turner have integrated the "official" tourney logo. The graphics that they've had since 2016 remain though.

I do wonder...what's the purpose of the audience section if it's only available for Selection Sunday (at least, I assume)

I found this today, surfing around from a graphics designer with the upcoming Fox baseball graphics for this year. I'll have to warn you that 1) might have been made last year before the World Series since in use Cubs/Indians as placeholders and 2) uses the NFL theme. 

 

That 60 FPS tho.

Love the graphics. Simple and clean. One picky observation on my part...why is the OPS before the BA? I think it should always go Batting Average, On Base Pct., Slugging Pct., and then OPS.

Any update on NBC sports?

No changes to any of their other properties.

I like ESPN's new baseball scorebug but it needs to have the bases where a runner isn't on it as white or something. Got confusing thinking the bases were loaded the first time I turned it on

So with this and college basketball getting its own graphics as well.  Does anyone expect a change to college football this fall?

I guess ESPN is aiming to have all the bugs unique to their own sport. 

And in the process, you'd have the less popular sports (college baseball, MLS, etc.) stuck on the 2014-based graphics.

A few examples of the player profile graphics from FX's World League broadcasts from 1996...

That light blue bg with white text has to be hard to read from a distance....  Not a great decision there.

I thought NBC was updating everything for the playoffs? What happened?

If anything, I (and a good amount of others who are on the site who follow graphics) were speculating and expecting NBC to start rolling out updates with the Stanley Cup chase. Now that the playoffs are in effect, it looks like we may not see anything new for some time. Worst-case scenario: we don't see the new look again until the HOF game in Canton this August, maybe?
