In the 2000s I remember Footy Park covering up the broadcast scorebug to blockout the countdown timer with a generic light blue scorebug which was much bigger than the broadcast one (which somehow ended up on highlight videos on the Crows YouTube channel).Most grounds would have had separate scoreboards back then with a basic vision feed for the ground - seems unlikely albeit possible. Only been the last 10-20 years that grounds have had in-house graphics.
Has anyone got info on what the G/H and X/Z are referencing? In this case, most of the vision was either from an in-house camera or possibly a "clean feed" from the broadcaster (i.e. a video mix without the graphics on top).Good theory but Hawthorn vs Fremantle was at Waverley in 1997 and Waverley's scoreboard was this
Interesting but this is probably about the time I was referring to - when I used to go to the SFS for Souths games, from about 2002-2004ish we got the broadcast feed that was sent from the truck to the stadium and the satellite feed (including everything except ads). Later and at ANZ, we got a clean feed (see above).In the 2000s I remember Footy Park covering up the broadcast scorebug to blockout the countdown timer with either a generic light blue scorebug which was much bigger than the broadcast one (which somehow ended up on highlight videos on the Crows YouTube channel).

My photo of the Waverley scoreboard would be 1999 (the final game at Waverley)that cant be 1997 as this was final score 15.9 99 v 11.8 74
