Years ago during the World Series I turned down the TV and listened to the radio to avoid being nauseated by Howard Cosell.

What difference does it really make if a certain network has less-than-desirable graphics on a broadcast? What about the games?

Seriously, folks, we've got bigger fish to fry than to be concerned about this.

The issue is if you turn to the game in progress it takes you a minute to figure out the game status.


On Fox you found out right away

Personally, I'd prefer no constant graphics. If they placed them onscreen between batters that would be more than enough for me.

Well there always have to be onscreen graphics for people who tune into the game while it's progress

I know how you feel, TVSG. Back in school I had a major a problem with ADD.

And and an even bigger one with SUBTRACT.

The graphics on TBS are easily understood and readable to me; though to be fair, my eyes work correctly and I am not in my 60's yet.

I can't believe anyone prefers Fox
And Tim McCarver is the worst when it comes to mindless dialog

I have brand new implanted Multi-Focal Lenses™ w/20/20 unaided and the graphics still sucked.

Leave Tim alone. He is what he is. I used to live across the street from him and went to his high school games.
