Closing season’s “Monday Night time Soccer” publicizes had been plagued with grievance for ESPN’s saying workforce of Joe Tessitore, Booger McFarland and Jason Witten.
Witten – who struggled every now and then his first 12 months within the sales space – returned to soccer, however his go out did not forestall lovers from discovering one thing fallacious with the most recent version of “Monday Night time Soccer.”
This time, it used to be the presentation.
ESPN rolled out a brand new graphic package deal for the Saints-Texans recreation, together with a brand new scorebug. But, that scoreboard graphic broke the very best rule within the e book for soccer: Are not making the down-and-distance graphic yellow.
It makes each play seem like a penalty as a result of audience have grown acquainted with the yellow “flag” graphic prior to now 20 years of soccer publicizes.
To make issues much more complicated, that field became black for a penalty. It made no sense, and lovers justifiably ripped ESPN for the ill-advised graphic, such a lot in order that ESPN if truth be told modified it at halftime.
Popping out of the destroy, the down-and-distance graphic used to be now white. When a flag got here out, it became the usual yellow.
All is now proper on the earth.
