Since Fox Sports Net has shown the 30 second shot
clock continously during College Basketball Games.

Do you think Shot Clock should be shown continously
during CBS's coverage of the NCAA Basketball Tournament?

I think the shot clock being displayed would be a nice addition to the CBS broadcast.

I think it is just fine only turning it on during the last 10 seconds of a possession. I do not think more clutter and burn-in material is necessary.

Showing the clock only for the actual relevant 10 seconds makes so much sense.
It actually alerts a viewer that they have entered into a slightly more critical situation.
Also, the shot clock often becomes irrelevant when either a shot is taken much sooner than the 10 second mark or a change of possession prior to 10 seconds remaining.

I'm a purist (and former basketball official). The less clutter on the screen the better. Wouldn't even hurt my feelings if they pulled the plug on Dickie V.

I only hope I can actually tune in to CBS next week to see what they do. :(

The last 10 seconds makes sense, as I too detest clutter. I would greatly appreciate it if when they scroll the latest scores from around the country and 'shrink' the screen of the game I'm watching, they would wait until the aciton on the floor is stopped (or at least a lull). It seems like at a critical point in every game I watch, whether it's basketball or football the shrink the screen at the absolute worse time :flaiming
