One thing that continues to be really annoying is the close up of the ball going through the goals / points. Cutting the players on the goal line and the goal umpire out of the picture means you lose so much perspective on distance and accuracy. Seems like the networks are more interested in showing off how close they can zoom in. A close up of the ball sailing through the air is not good coverage.
