detlef Posted December 14, 2009 Share Posted December 14, 2009 On ESPN's Monday football coverage, they bust out the telestrator to diagram how plays went down. Nothing new, of course. Only, instead of filling up the entire screen with the play and just circling the dudes they want you to see and drawing all over the screen, they have dude standing next to a TV positioned at an angle (so it's not as easy to see the action) actually pointing to the damned TV. What the hell is up with that? Why is this an improvement to how everyone else does it? Did they think we needed the personal touch of actually seeing someone point to a TV? Hell, why not rock it like the Weatherman and have him standing in front of a huge screen instead of giving us a crappy side view of a 40" flat screen? Obviously, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but it puzzles me because this is someone's job. Someone works at least full time figuring out cool new tricks for this show.
