RULE #1 should be an absolute "no-brainer" whether you are a football fan, fantasy nerd, or the producer/director of the presentation:

NEVER blackout or mask part of the presentation.

The blacked out portion not only eliminates part of your primary product, it also cannot relay any other information. Therefore, it serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

If you find yourself in the position that you've taken the historically unprecedented step of masking off part of your programming to address overscan - your graphics have evolved to the unacceptable point that they have "painted you into a corner" and it's time to start over with a different format.

There is no defensible position to justify violating this rule.

It looks like ESPN just jumped into second place.

Hopefully the start of a trend. I can actually see the game. Old unis look good too.

Does anyone have a 1920x1080 screencap from any of this weekend's CBS games, with the new "Eye Bar" score bug?

Check "NFL on CBS" on Wikipedia for all of them.

CBS and FOX are now a tossup IMO. Not sure what's worse - eliminating a significant portion of the top, or having a top and bottom bar that makes you feel like you're watching the game while looking through the slats of a closet door.

Both. It's almost like what's in the middle doesn't count.

safe zone... safe zone...

repeat that after me.

safe zones were important back in the old SD says... actually old CRT tv days.

these days, i think what the camera operator sees on his 16x9 view finder is what we see on our HD sets...

that's why those dang lattice shows up on NBC...

sigh...

something i would enjoy tremendously is that when the ball is hiked( or any play is "live" for that matter) that all/any overlays fade out. They are already active as it is and being constantly changed for down, yards etc etc. So why cant they just fade out or turn off as the ball is hiked. I dont beleive it would be a big deal as its monitored anyways. They could learn a lesson from some NHL score overlays as they have improved the last 2 years as well.
