In watching all types of televised sports, occasionally the volume of the play by play personnel is low in comparison to the background volume of the crowd.
It's not a case of the play by play personnel being located in a noisy area, crowd microphones are placed at each facility, plus the parabolic mikes we see on the sidelines.
Last year there were several hockey games televised from Toronto, where (I assume) the sound engineers choose the variance between the volume of the play by play too close to that of the crowd microphones.
However, the volume of the play by play in relation to the crowd noise of the CFL at all venues is such that at some times is impossible to hear the play by play. This has been going in for years.
I know TSN is trying to give the viewer "a feel of the atmosphere at the game", but really.
I don't generally watch the NFL, but just switched to a game to see how the sound was. No such problem, and we all know the numbers of fans who attend those games.
TSN facilities, graphics, support staff etc, is apparently on a shoe string budget, but adjusting the volume doesn't cost a cent.
I sent a comment to TSN several weeks ago and didn't even get the courtesy of a response.
Anyone else notice this ?
