CBC and TSN to change sports format!

It seems with tradition when CBC and TSN both switch formats, they wait for Football either week 1 or labour day.

TSN will change it's format, and I have heard that CBC is doing some changing around with sports coverage, but most will apply on labour day.

I heard that CBC is keeping the color and score fonts the same untill labour day.

I heard that TSN might switch to the bottom screen for scoreboard.

is this good or bad?

neither really

IM indifferent on this, its good they have the score posted all the time, but it clutters up the screen as well. I would say maybe post that up every 3 mins or so during the game.

I dont mind it. Lets you know how much time is left. I think they are fine sizes. I dont find they clutter the screen at all.

What drives me nuts about TSN is when they the post sports news and scores on the bottom of the screen. I hope the lose that

The TV viewing screen is getting too clustered.

The ticker can be somewhat annoying at times, but since TSN is patterning themselves as a Canadian version of ESPN, and ESPN has a standardized ticker appearance, regardless of event, every half hour (on :28 and :58, if memory serves me right).

The New Scoreboard Is Horrible. I Can't Stand It, It Makes Me Want To Puke, It's Way To Nascar Redneck Spitting Into A Jar. I Won't Watch Hockey On Stations That Have Those Stupid Bands And It's Annoying As Anything In Baseball Cause The Runners Table Doesn't Fit On It (Not That I'll Watch Baseball Anyways). All Be Really P.O.ed To See TSN And CBC Go To That.

I'll have to watch a game first before I make a decision on it.

I just hope that this year, the TSN game board is larger! You needed to use a magnifying glass and squint to make out who was winning or what down it was. Horrible. I like TSN's broadcasts otherwise, but the minute game board bothered me the whole of last year.

will they still have a pre game show i heard they won't

are they ding the monday night football thing?

TSN celebrates the 10th anniversary of Friday Night Football with a new look, a new cast and a double-header of football action.

Brian Williams will make his highly anticipated TSN debut, joining the acclaimed CFL On TSN broadcast crew, working alongside the returning team of Chris Cuthbert, Glen Suitor, Rod Black and Leif Pettersen and the studio panel of Dave Randorf, Chris Schultz, Matt Dunigan and Jock Climie.

Prior to the kickoff of the season opener between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes, Williams sits down for a candid one-on-one interview with CFL commissioner Tom Wright during the pre-game show at 7pm et/4pm pt. Known for his compelling interviews, Williams doesn't shy away from the tough questions, asking Wright about his future with the League, the situation in Ottawa, and Wright's relationship with the owners.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes kick off TSN's 50-game regular season schedule and the first of the network's 30 games to be broadcast in High Definition this season. That is followed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders against the B.C. Lions at 10:30 pm et/7:30 pm pt.

Chris Cuthbert returns as the primary voice of TSN's CFL coverage, calling 35 games this season alongside long-time game analyst Glen Suitor. Rod Black will call the play-by-play for 15 games this season, while former CFL player Leif Pettersen will provide colour commentary for 14 CFL games.

Viewers will also get their first glimpse of TSN's new state-of-the-art broadcast studio which is High Definition-ready and designed for ultimate versatility. It features a 16-by-9 rear projection screen for all main desk shots, three 40" LCD screens, a 40" plasma screen and three curved walls which have the ability to change colour.

Kinda like capitalizing every word in a sentence ...?
