NB Josh I wasn't watching the game, but if I had to guess...

ESPN runs their ticker every half hour or so, TSN probably covered the ESPN ticker with their's and forgot to remove it. This has happened before.

ptimo Does Anyone know why TSN is running the ticker during Monday Night Football? I can't see the game clock or score.

thegman Good stuff Rogers.

Simsub is now letterboxed, so I will eat crow and say they fixed it.

NB Josh If you get Sportsnet East I'd bet that they are letterboxing it. I know that Sportsnet letterboxes any baseball that they pick up from Fox.

thegman Yes youre right, and I bet any monmey Fox SD Buffalo has it messed up as well, seeing as the baseball lastnight was wrong on Fox Buffalo.

But still, Citytv should be more aware. All it would take is one person to notice that you only see one score and that something aint right. I dont expect it to be fixed.

jumpy27 Fox has started doing that for baseball games as well--they take the HD feed and just chop off the sides for the SD feed. I noticed that near the end of the season for the Saturday games.

thegman Looks like Fox has decided that the Min/Dal game is the one thats supposed to be in letterbox for SD.

TOO BAD Citytv has no freakin clue what they are doing.

The SD simsub has half the score missing and other stuff missing.

Letterbox it you idiots!

Well, at least I can tell Min has 0 points, as for Dallas, who knows.

NB Josh Its really just been a fluke because Seattle has played 10am PT games 2 of the past 3 weeks, so CBS and Fox have both aired late games in Seattle. As a result Sportsnet ends up offering the same game as one of the two.

thegiffer I used to look forward to the Sportsnet games because they added to the selection available here in Vancouver. However, for the last three weeks, we get a game that is already offered on the main networks e.g. this week the Denver - Jets game.

NB Josh Also worth noting that Minnesota-Dallas is virtually a national game on Fox. It is going everywhere in the US except the Denver and San Francisco areas which can't air it because Denver and San Francisco are playing at home on CBS at 4:05pm ET. So everybody in Canada will get it on Fox and it is also on all Citytv channels.
