    Icon13 TSN and Sportsnet tickers clutter the screen !!!

    Not sure why TSN and Sportsnet feel the need to add their non-transparent ticker with the scores running at the bottom of the screen, covering up a large portion of the screen (it's an overlay, not a push-up squish type), even though the originating sourced American channels have no ticker at all.

    I can understand when ESPN has their own ticker running, but for tonight's NCAA Final Four games on TBS, there's no ticker there, so I'm watching the pirate feed instead of my own TSN feed (better picture). I did the same for last night's Dodgers' game that Sportsnet joined in progress.

    I'll be cancelling my cable again (after three months), and then if there's something exclusive to cable that I want to watch, I'll just pick up a box and rejoin for the week and then cancel again.

    It seems that when the Canadian sports channels are airing their own content, like the Jays on Sportsnet, any ticker would just be temporary, but when the broadcast originates from a US channel, up goes the ticker.

    I want the US channels, not some damn imitation Canadian versions of them that alter the content!

    Enough with the clutter!!!!

    EDIT Apr 1: Now TSN2 is using a push-up ticker for the whole NO vs OKC NBA game because they are taking the NBATV USA feed, even though Fox Sports New Orleans is only using its ticker about once per 20-30 minutes for a few minutes. Thus the TSN2 picture has the game score actually a few inches higher up than it should be (but at least there is no squishing of the picture since TSN is only playing with the graphic overlays).
