ESESPN's Multi-Split Screen On The Rose & Sugar Bowls


Recommended Posts

ESPN has decided to broadcast the Rose Bowl with multi-split screens reducing the game screen to about 30% of your TV screen They stopped it for the second half. Two of the multi screens were showing what the coaches were doing! This is beyond stupid.

Now the Sugar Bowl is on and there are four screens in one with two being a bunch of slugs watching their smart phones talking over the plays like the boys at the bar.

Whoever came up with these ideas ought to be fired now. We don't buy larger screens only to have the game screen reduced by 50-60 %. Six guys are talking at the same time on the Sugar Bowl.

The one in the national championship game was so interesting. They had Kevin Sumlin, Cutcliff, Gundy, and a couple of past assistant coaches with Alabama and Georgia that have head coaching jobs now commenting on the plays being run and what they were seeing and what they would do to adjust...it was awesome....so funny that last play they all groaned when the corner and safety let the Alabama WR get behind them. I wish somebody would do NFL games like that!

What are you talking about?

 

Each game was on three different channels with different options for any viewer.

 

One channel had the normal game broadcast.    A second one had a slit screen with different cameras and announcers.

 

And the third one, which you apparently found, had six current college head coaches sitting around a table analyzing the game in real time.   What just happened?    What was about to happen?   Great insight from people who should know.

 

Perhaps you couldn't see or hear properly?   Maybe you were at a sports bar and couldn't tell what you were seeing?    Anything is possible....

 

By the way, they've done this before.   The person who came up with this idea is NOT going to get fired.   They're more likely to get a bonus and a promotion.
