Sportscenter Rundown bar

I don't like it on a small TV because it is too small to read the rundown bar, and the regular viewing area is smaller. It would be good on HD if it doesn't affect the regular viewing area. I'll see how it looks in HD today.

I saw this thing for the first time today and thought PTI redid their graphics...then I saw the "SC" ball in the corner of the screen and was like "wtf"? Why? THe bottom line wasn't enough? And, to all of us less unfortunate sports-loving souls who don't have and can't/won't/never will be able to afford HDTV, it shrinks the viewing area. Can't read the topic list from a distance. Actually, from a good ways away it look like something out "The Matrix Revolutions" or something...

I don't like it on the 16" in my room at all, and the graphics still become a little blurry on the 27" downstairs. They could've easily fit that nonsense on a thin strip above the bottom line and have it be still smaller than the ESPNEWS ticker.

Hate it. I mean really hate it, leave the rundown stuff to PTI. And move the cancel the SportsCenter reruns from 6-10 am Eastern and move Mike and Mike in the Morning to ESPN.

I have an HDTV wide screen 36 inches its grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat

you should see it on my 50" plasma! :D

I'd rather NOT watch the Rundown on my 52" plasma. BURN.

Seriously, I don't like it.

1. I don't have ADD. I can patiently sit through an entire 60 minute program and see what they show. I don't need to be tipped off well in advance, and if I can't figure out what they're going to talk about when they're leading into their ad breaks, then I should pay closer attention.

2. It's information overkill. It'd be one thing if it were like the Bottom Line, which often includes news items that aren't covered during the show. But it's taking up a strip of screen to tell me what the rest of the screen will be talking about momentarily. It's unnecessary clutter and it's redundant.

3. ESPN needs to do something about their graphics packages overall. Their graphics are too big and too static. I can't watch ESPN for very long because I worry about their graphics burning into my screen. I learned that lesson from the draft a month after I got the TV in '06. The burn-in resolved, but I shouldn't be afraid to watch a channel for the damage it's going to do to my equipment. I thank them for revampinf their score panel for soccer and baseball, so I can just zoom in my screen and get rid of those static graphics. But the tall box they used for basketball will be the death of my system.

LOVE IT.

Every morning as I'm eating my breakfast I watch the show. I usually try to get ready for school when they're showing things I'm not interested in. I used to have to guess and half the time I'd end up missing the thing I had wasted half an hour waiting for.
