    Yeah it looked a bit cartoonish with their first font.

    Yep, very shoddy. Just the way they covered the leadup to Harmes/Sheldon goal (cut to Harmes out of play when Sheldon was kicking it?) was a real mess.

    yeah, just looks very bland, especially the generic white font used for everything

    I didn't realise just how many ways there were to use the pennants until I took notice over the weekend. They are everywhere.

    And to be honest, they're quite cringeworthy.

    Just generally shit.

    Just go back to 2005-07 graphics please. (Draft coverage too.)

    To be honest, I didn't really like 05-07. Foxtel's graphics were poor, and Channel 10's from 05-06 were pretty bad. My perfect storm of graphics would be Ten's 07-11, Foxtel's 09-11, and Nine's 04-06.

    Massive thread, but I only just realised they don't have the large banner that shows the full scores across the bottom of the screen after goals. I miss them.

    To be fair to the person manning the camera the ball was out :)

    The graphics often helped me through watching some boring games.

    They chose a font which was very easy on my eye.

    It was a great font. Much better than their previous one, which I believe was Futura. In fact, Ten's coverage from 02-06 (particularly 02-04) was poor. They had the production values of a regional footy game.

    Let it be said that the Futura family of fonts look shithouse.

    Well Channel 10 have always been an el-cheaply station, even more so now.

    Ever since they lost the footy it's been a downward spiral. The only thing of theirs that I find remotely entertaining is HYBPA.

    When you really look at it, the only worthwhile thing 10 have put up in years is their footy coverage.

    My new laptop has Futura as the keyboard font.
