BT Sport Rugby New Pitch Graphics - A BIG NO!!

Some bright spark has decided we need horrid US Gridiron-sytle graphics telling us how many meters a team has made or lost.

 

It's just AWFUL!!

 

It makes the game much harder to watch and is simply not needed or wanted.

 

We know you like new toys but put this one back in it's box PLEASE

Oh good

 

I thought it was just me. Watching Wasps v  Gloucester and it is spoliling it a bit for me

 

I like the Rugby coverage on BT but sometimes I t isn't necessary to be innovative all the time

No not just you.

 

They seemed to realise and stopped using it in the second half.

 

Just because you can use clever graphics doesn't mean you should

You can tell where the game line is as there is usually one forward at the bottom of the ruck who is slow to recover.

BT please don't confuse rugby fans with American football fans, they are far more intelligent and can easily tell whether a team has made a gain or loss in field position. Please don't use this again, it is not needed and spoils the viewing experience, it's even worse than the constant replays and commentator graphics you show, please cut these out too we want to watch what is happening on the pitch not the Kay and Healey justification show.

Oh ffs

 

Just the sort of remark that gets rugby fans a bad name

 

I watch and enjoy both sports equally. Presumably, I am not any less thick when I am watching NFL than when I am viewing RU

Indeed I did

 

See my comment at the top just after yours

 

Do you agree with the view expressed that RU fans are somehow more intelligent than Gridiron supporters?
