Baseball on TV

The Washington Post wants FOX to tone down the graphics and commercials (registration required).

I agree. I'm not sure whether baseball broadcasts have gotten more commercial and ostentatious in the last five years or whether it's me, but it's too much. There are too many unnecessary graphics, too much overheated announcing, too many loud commercials, and way too many instant replays.

Thanks, Ryan.

If you've ever watched five minutes of a game on ESPN Classic, Charlie, you'd realize that it's not just you. Broadcasts from even the late 80's consist of mostly crowd noise interrupted occasionally by Vin Scully.

The game is still worth dealing with the loud graphics, interminable reaction shots and overanalysis by men of underwhelming intelligence. But that's a credit to baseball (small b), not FOX.

I don't get ESPN classic and don't really ever watch old game broadcasts. I do remember broadcasts having a lot less "look at me!" type elements even a few years ago. These games are reminding me more and more of the Super Bowl, which now has much more to do with glitz and product than athletics.
