maybe they will "redebut" it on their nfl draft coverage saturday since the new scroll always seems to be tied to events.

Kevin Neghandi spotted at ESPN Sportscenter Special!

I thought they fired him, I guess he was demoted.

ABC's scroll is the SD one, with blank space on the sides to fill up the 16:9 area.

No it was in an ESPN press release about the draft being in HD for the first time.

Well, since that's not the new BottomLine but looks like an alternate modified version so they can left-cut the HD feed for SD, it looks like this ongoing BottomLine mess won't affect the draft.

But I think dcowboy is probably right that the new BL will premiere following the draft. Maybe this was planned all along and the run on Opening Day was just a test?

They can (and do) test this stuff off the air. The old BottomLine looks totally out of place during SportsCenter with the spiffy new graphics. There is no way ESPN meant for it to go down like this.

This image was also part of the press release, via Engadget HD, with the old-style BottomLine.

Yes, that's how it looked last year. They provided it for comparison.

Yes, looked more like a 4x3 picture with the rest of the stuff (i.e. graphics, bottom line) filling in the remainder of the 16x9 area.

The new look keeps the 16x9 type picture, although shrunk, and changes the graphics package.

I will have to read about it here as I won't be able to watch the draft this year - I'll be away at a weekend event.

one final thing - ESPN: FIX. THE. DAMN. BOTTOM. LINE. GRAPHICS.

The scoreboard is just a slight modification from the MNF one that was used last season. The BottomLine is a completely different beast.

They're running a segment from Radio City during SportsCenter. If this is what it looks like tomorrow during the draft, it's going to be very disappointing. Looks DVD soft, so much so that the graphics look blurry. Maybe they cut corners because the picture is going to be resized?

I can't understand why shows like PTI, and AROUND THE HORN are not in HD.

They are recorded in D.C., not Bristol or LA. That's why. Besides, unless ESPN is going to start broadcasting ATH in letterbox, I don't see what benefit an HD presentation would even bring, and I doubt any of the cameras at any of the newspapers where the panelists work are HD ready.

No cut corners. This is the Monday Night Football SS25 outfit. Not sure what the transmission path is, most likely fiber straight to Bristol, PQ should look pristine. And if they are doing some minor coring or camera filtering it shouldn't affect the way the graphics look.

They are both produced by Atlantic Video in D.C., and I don't think their facility is even HD capable. I'm not aware of any timeline for getting these shows bumped up to HD.

LOL because of ESPN's bottomline? I don't know that there's any data, but I would imagine the bottomline would not affect ratings. Certainly not to the extent that semi-lackluster outings of Lost, Grey's and Desperate Housewives would along with a series of highly touted shows like Life on Mars that sorta crashed and burned.

Seriously though, why did the new bottomline get dumped?

I was about to be pleased with ESPN but with this bulky crap still on my screen...

The fine people at Vizrt in Norway decided to hand-deliver something ESPN needed to fix the new BottomLine. But they're walking.

Is this thing EVER coming back? TWC just added ESPN News HD here. I thought it was going to be a waste at first, but I can't get over how fantastic the graphics look. It looks like the one-day only BottomLine from the regular ESPNHD. I really hope ESPN resumes using these beautiful glass-like graphics soon and dumps that flat, 2D monstrosity that currently clogs up the bottom of the screen.

Word on the street is the hardware wasn't 100% up to handling all the stuff they wanted to do, so it's being upgraded to pack a little more punch.
