Sunday Night Football

If anyone can get a screen shot, you'll see what I'm talking about.

On NBC's scoreboard for the Steelers-Chargers game, the logo next to the Chargers is the retro light blue background with yellow bolt, rather than the navy background and white bolt. Same for the "we're cutting to commercial" scoreboard.

Is this just for tonights game to go along with the Charger's uniforms?

If so, I'm impressed with the level of detail NBC would commit to a specific game.

This isn't completely without precendent. FSN North would use the ball-in-glove logo on its Sunday home Brewers telecasts.

The big reason the scoreboard is there is so one can readily identify who is playing even if they've never watched a football game in their lives, even moreso on Sunday night, when your audience may consist of even more casual viewers. Wouldn't it just confuse people if San Diego was identified on NBC with a navy blue scheme, when they took the field in the collegiate blue?

I attended the Chargers\Raiders game at the Murph in 2000 (and survived) where the Bolts sported the powder blues. I recorded ESPN's Sunday Night Football and they also did powder blue graphics to identify the Chargers so last night wasn't a first.

:P thanks Chris for whoring my Forum logo to your site... blame canada ! :flagcanada:

I was suprised myself when NBC went to that much detail. Normally you see companies still using outdated logos *coughfoxcough*, but not NBC. They were on the ball.

And then the Chargers won wearing those sick-ass unis, so it was smiles for everyone.
