The latest version of Grinds My Gears sees Joel Clarke explore a crucial element missing in Channel 7's footy coverage...
In the 21st century of television broadcasting, you would think that Channel 7 could at least give fans the ability to see how long there is to go in a quarter, no matter their TV size. I mean for god sake, it’s not like you haven’t had the last 5 years to get it right. Thursday night, I constantly looked to see how long there was to go in the quarter and all I saw was the seconds. In the final stages of the 4th quarter, with Mitch Robinson running into goal and kicking truly, the siren sounded. As happy as I was, I had no idea of the time left. Then as Fremantle and Geelong played out an enthralling contest, I was unable to see how long was to go in the match.
Now, most other broadcasters have the time in the top left hand corner... ie: NFL, Soccer, Baseball etc.
Channel 7, can you please get this fixed?
I have a 110cm TV and can’t afford a bigger one. As much as I love Dennis Cometti and his brilliant calling, right now Channel 7 isn’t exactly centimetre perfect.
Please fix this - Either have the score box in the top left like Foxtel do, or move the timer to the right-hand side of the score.
