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.

Wrong forum for this, but how can you not mention the red line and shaded area up at the top of the screen? It's entirely pointless clutter.

I think for Football the only network that does the scorebar right is NBC.
If NBC got rid of the chain-link pattern they have under the score bar, they would get higher marks from me. All that does is tax the encoder unnecessarily.

+1 on Jeremy W's NBC fence/net complaint.
Harsh and I agreeing on something... definitely not something you see every day.
