    aside from the jackass simms, i've been frustrated all day by the camera work. everything seems to be shot from far away. nothing tight.

    Wonder why they aren't doing anything with NFL Network to provide supplimental coverage. They DO have Marv Albert doing the radio broadcast, so there's that. But you'd expect something like what ESPN did for one of the big Florida football games, where each channel gets some sort of unique coverage. Maybe a coach cam or something, I dunno.

    And does Rain-X work on camera lenses?

    The few ISO shots they've shown have been useless because of the rain.

    CBS hi-def blows. It's always had lots of pixelation in my area.

    Nantz and Simms are awful.

    Is there a network left that has on-air personalities that know we don't tune in to sporting events to see THEM?

    NBC seems to be the only one that at least treats the events with a modicum of respect.

    It's 2007. Does CBS not have any money to pay for towels to wipe off the camera lenses? It looked like something from 1977, not 2007.

    How did those water drops look in HDTV?

    Someone probably thought it gave the telecast a soft-focus, artsy-fartsy look and decided to leave it as is.

    Horrible - the rain is hell on HD broadcasts. I am sure CBS executives were going nuts.

    My wife wanted me to break down for a big ol' TV this weekend. At some point, I guess I will.

    The NFL Network replay of Super Bowl III was better than what CBS passed off tonight. Just brutal.

    Yeah, that John Madden is so damn modest.
