No disrespect intended to those outside of the Twins Cities, who could not watch the game, but the local coverage of lastnights game was AWFUL. First off, what is with the big fat scoreboard that took up a quarter of the screen. The technical crew finally figured out that our beloved mascott head was in the way of seeing most of the plays, but instead of moving the board during game play, they decided to go to the Hubble for the feed. It looked like they had about two cameras on the whole field and I have seen better play coverage (the ability for the camera person not to be faked out by the play action and draws 17 times per quarter) from EP's A/V squad covering Grant's boys across town.
Anyway, I know it's preseason but I think our team deserves more respect than yellow tinted camera coverage. Sorry ABC, Matvick couldn't fix this one.
Oh, are we running a West Coast offense and a Tampa 2 Defense this year? Cuz they never brought it up at all ;)
