Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

Recommended Posts

NBC has new graphics for their Premier League coverage, probably based on their partnership with SKY Sports because they're quite similar.

I wish they would just use the premier leagues own package.  Love that one.

 

Although this new NBC graphic is quite an improvement over last seasons!

I'll be curious to know what Sky Sports graphics looked like. I know that there was some change-ups between which networks - Sky and BT - have which windows of games this year, so I don't know which of those two had tonight's game, but I'm sure I'll find out soon enough if Sky is in-sync with NBCSN or if they're keeping their own score bug and related graphics.

FWIW, Sky kept their usual scorebug

 

But yep, going to be interesting to see the BT window tomorrow morning, as well as the 10 am slot where there's the television blackout in England

I still think it's way too big for soccer. It's like they're still in the HDTV transition era.

I wonder if that's Premier League exclusive or if they'll use that for the NHL as well?

 

I'd like to see it get used for MLB on NBC Sports affiliate stations. The A's and Giants have had the same graphics packages for four seasons now, and while I enjoy it, I think moving to this new style would be subtle, but also refreshing and worthwhile.

Fox hasn't changed up the scorebug or bulk of its graphics yet but based on the wipes it looks like they've got something up their sleeve Week 1. And by something up their sleeve I mean still making Cleatus the Robot A Thing in the year of our lord 2020.

Not bad at all.

 

And I will not be surprised at all if NBC's next big (when it comes at anytime) rebrand across all sports goes Sky-ish like their new Premier League graphics.

Well Sinclair recently closed their acquisition of Fox Sports Net, so we will all expect a rebrand sooner or later, which means totally new graphics.

What was the first network to do the headshots at the beginning of the game where the players say “First Name Last Name, University”?

What year did they start doing that?

I think that was ABC back in 2000, the same year they put Dennis Miller in the broadcast booth.

Even if Miller's rants had little to do with the action on the field?

"Haley Joel Osment saw dead people more clearly than Brett Favre can see his own receivers!"

 

"I've seen internet dial up speeds faster than Warrick Dunn has been running all night!"

 

"Wow, look at those muscles. I wonder if Ed Hochuli is secretly The Incredible Hulk!"

 

"You gotta love Mark Brunell's scrambling ability, Al. I mean, he carried that football to the endzone like he fell prey to Montezuma's Revenge!"

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: what is the meaningful difference between lines like these and Deadspin comments
