Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

Recommended Posts

I'd need to see how it's used for other teams before I make a statement, but I'm glad they're still using the logos.

 

On a side note, why is there an aqua line above the Eagles' bar? I assume that's where the team's secondary color appears (with the Patriots in red), why not use black or silver?

That's way better than anyone else has gone in recent redesigns and keeps the primary/secondary color thing NBC had going that I loved. I approve

If the following scoreboard is any indication, NBC may have gone there, but for the gradients in the score:

Reminds me of the FOX bugs from the mid 2000s which is a good thing.

Not terrible, but not really an upgrade from what they had. It reminds me a lot of the old FOX graphics package from 2005.

Ugh! Spoiler alert on myself for the new look, but oh well. That's what I get for asking.

 

All that aside, it is great! Can't wait to see it in action tomorrow and with the rest of the graphics elements too.

FOX better upgrade theirs too. It's the absolute worst. Complete and total lack of imagination. It's lazy. Looks like what you would find on your local regional sports broadcast of a division III or high school game.

 

"Hey, Bob. You know those two lines your 4-year-old daughter drew with her crayons last week? Yeah.... let's send that to the graphics department and use it for ALL our sports ball telecasts in 2017." <_<

so first little bit that they showed before the NFL Films special doesn't seem to overloaded on italics and it looks really sharp. We'll see more of it as the day progresses to make a bigger judgment, but so far so good

All that italic/skewing feels a little dated to me. I thought we moved past lazily skewing stuff to connote speed and action like ten years ago.

I know hope it just for the pregame but I do like the scorebug can't wait to see it for the NHL but I like the Olympic graphic better

My goodness. They exceeded my expectations by miles. No bland, flat BS, but colorful graphics that pop out and actually have thought and creativity put into them, unlike FOX.

Using Madden images insteadvof real players images during stat box layouts on the field feels like a step backwards. Better off to keep using still photos of the players.

Those better not be from Madden 18 because they look like they're straight from Madden 2003.

Those weren't from Madden at all. Madden 2003 didn't even look that bad either.

Whatever game they were from, they were pretty creepy and weren't an improvement.

Generally speaking, I liked the new NBC package. The angled nature of the scorebar reminded me of the 2003 NFL on FOX package, which I loved, and it had a certain flair that's uniquely NBC/SNF. CBS still has my favorite current NFL package, however.

 

As a Bay Area baseball fan, I'm curious if our NBC Sports Bay Area/California telecasts will feature a baseball version of the new graphics package, or if they'll stick with the current version (based on the graphics package introduced for Super Bowl 49) for one more season.

Won't surprised me if the graphics is only for Sunday Night Football just like ESPN

I'm sure that's a one-off thing for this Super Bowl. I doubt we'll see NBC go that far for its SNF games next season.

 

On another note, I'm glad the scoreboard they actually used looks better than the one that leaked earlier this week. At least that dead space in the place for the down and distance has room for special occasion (Kickoff, Thanksgiving, etc.) or "SNF". Also, how about that touchdown animation?

Back to the madden people- what is the need to have them be moving? Does a picture of the player suffice? The madden people don’t even remotely look like the player they are supposed to represent and it’s really just weird...
