Jeff & Big Joe tear into the blunders of week one's broadcast.

 


 

Jeff and Big Joe discuss some of the oddities that happened during the broadcasts of the games this weekend. 

 

Techincal issues caused some confusion for fans during the games. 

"During the first Monday Night Football game, the screen that tells everyone the down and distance was a bright neon yellow color that made you think that there was a penalty on every play. During the Colts broadcast there was a commercial that was also yellow that made me think there was a penalty. Social media was killing the yellow color, the issue was trending nationally on Twitter. During the second quarter of the game, the broadcast switched the color back to normal. Even the PR staff acknowledged this and apologized for the confusion. The yellow color was more distracting than helpful." 

 

The color of the field was also not safe from the scrunity. 

"Did you know that the broadcast also darkens the grass to show the yards needed for a first down? Turn it blue or something, it's confusing. It makes me feel like the groundskeeper didn't evenly fertilize the field. Turn it into the Boise Stadium color. Just use the line, the darker patch of grass doesn't make it any easier."
