Fox-right away
TBS-5 secs
Takes you 5 seconds to count to 2?

It takes you 2 seconds longer to recognize 2 dots on a screen than it does to recognize the number 2? Ok

Keep in mind I;m talking about when turning to it for the first time. Once I go back and forth I can see it a little better but I still don't like the dots

Well, TVandSportsGuy, I have faith that as a human being, you can adapt and learn.

Are you telling me if you just turn on a game on TBS, you can find all of this out in 5 secs or less?

Pitch Count
Number of Outs
Score
Men on Base


Especially since they have it side to side

No. I'm telling you that I don't believe that this will be a debilitating problem for you.

When I watch a game I typically watch the entire game so I know the score, number of outs and where the runners are on base. Sometimes I lose track of the pitch count and I can read that in less than 5 seconds.

I wasn't really agreeing that TBS was bad until yesterday. First I am tired of Dick Stockton. He needs to retire. He constantly gets people names wrong all the time, but what really irked me yesterday was the catch that Jon Jay made. Don't get me wrong it was a great catch, but then Stockton brought it up a million times and called it the catch of the series.

1. Even if he didn't catch it, it wasn't going out of the ball park .
2. The Nationals were already down by 4 at that point and the game was pretty much a blow out
3. Jayson Werth made a catch in Game 1 that literally robbed the Cardinals of a home run and oh by the way Werth's team was down one run, which means the catch was the difference in the game.

Jay's catch was more difficult, IMO. Jay made his on the run while Werth had more chance to set himself.

It was more difficult, but it wasn't as significant as they were making it. If Jayson Werth doesn't make that catch, there is likely no chance the Nationals come back to win that game. To me they gave no love the Werth catch but lauded about a catch that had very little impact on the series.
