ESPN/ABC, can I get my screen back?!?!

Remember when our TV screen was just filled with the program?

Trying to enjoy primetime college football on ABC (Cal vs. Mich. St.) and also switching between Mizzou vs. Illini on ESPNHD. And now they have the sports ticker running at the bottom of the screen. THat used to be only on ESPN2. Have gotten used to the game tracker at the top of the screen as that's the norm for all sports, but now filling the bottom is over the top.

I personally feel the bottom ticker is distracting, if I needed to get a score\news I'll go to ESPN2 or ESPNNews.

How can I complain about this foolishness. I just want the game on my screen. Don't need the bottom ticker.

I think for Football the only network that does the scorebar right is NBC. They have the Score on the bottom of the screen instead of the top. And when they show scores it's in a small box that only is seen sometimes. Not all the time like the ESPN/ABC Intrusive Bottom Line and Scorebar being at the top of the screen with the red line all the way across.
While we are talking about scorebars on games. Does anyone think CBS will Finally go to a scorebar instead of the Score Box at the top of the screen that changes sides with each possesion of the football? I kinda thought last year they would go with there NCAA Tournament Scorebar at the Bottom of the screen for Football NFL games but they didn't do so. Also I noticed FSN has went back to the score box and ditched the score bar they had for college football games.
