Is On-Field Graphics Expensive?
Now that the CFL season is upon us, I see that TSN modified its score bug. I think it is better than the one last season since ot does not take space as much.
However, I do think that it is still far behind what it is in the NFL and Division I NCAA. How expensive it is to put a CGI down information on the field? All 5 NFL broadcasters do it. It is very informative, I think, as viewer gets the down information near the players and right before the ball is snapped.
The second thing I wish is the spidercam. But this one is obviously cost-prohibitive and therefore is used only on the Grey Cup game.
