    This 100%

    I get that they want to keep you watching FSN to see the scores and not change the channel, but come on. The ticker actually does mess with the quality of the HD picture by a lot. And the camera isn't told to compensate, so we are left with an angle that misses the board play in the neutral zone.

    Is this the 1st season with the ticker??? I don't remember it being used on FSN before......

    Since they launched Fox Sports 1and 2 this is the new ticker they have been using on all sporting events on all Fox channels. Annoying as hell. But monkey see (ESPN) monkey do.

    A few weeks back I was watching a delayed broadcast of a game on Fox Sports 2. The particular game was not aired live on any channel, so this was the first time it had been aired, some 4-5 hours after the game was played. The coverage begins, the game is literally about to start, and the ticker on the bottom of the screen scrolls past with the final score of the game that is just starting.

    Genius.

    Instead of "fixing" it, they should just blow it up.

    KingThomas had it right with the fact that it's overlayed on top of the live picture; at least the one on ESPN doesnt impinge upon the action onscreen.

    I generally hate them not solely for their tendency, due to their constant movement, to draw the eye away from the event being watched but also for scores I don't want to see being presented onscreen - as S-Hart noted.

    A truly annoying concept poorly executed.

    This thread should be:

    Hey, Fox Sports, GET RID OF YOUR TICKER!

    Honestly, I know it's thin, but it does block some of the picture. Anytime the play is at the near boards, the stupid ticker is in the way. And why are there 2 layers to it? The bottom layer has nothing. Just takes up space. Get rid of it!

    Bump.

    I absolutely hate they don't resize the picture to compensate for the ticker. Its blocking plays along the boards. They need to fix this or get rid of the ticker completely.
