fake crowd noise I can live with, please do away with play by play and 99% of color commentary (on radio play by play is Ok) I can see the farking play, I do not need some bingo caller and washed up jock telling me what I just saw.

But the announcers have access to more info than you have watching at home. The batter makes contact, but it will take another beat and different camera for you to know if that is a liner into the gap, a lazy pop up to the 1st baseman or a deep drive. You can't know if the runner on 1st took off or if there runner on 3rd is taking a huge lead. Sitting in the stands you immediately know all that. Having said that... going WAY old school.. Phil Rizzuto was entertaining but clueless. "It's DEEEP to left! Oh wait, no, the shortstop settles under it and makes the catch."

Jaguars: "Um, can we pipe-in crowd noise even after the virus subsides and for the years to come? No reason."

Who you kidding? We're used to it.

I've said this in similar threads, but I'd pay for a hockey feed that just had game sounds. No announcers, no piped in crowd noises. Just the sounds of the game. Skates on the ice, pucks hitting the boards, players chirping, refs yelling, etc.

The first Bundesliga games when they came back had no crowd noise.  You could hear all the noises and coaching on the pitch.   Some in German, some in English.  I liked it.

Listen to a game in 5.1, turn down the center channel. It works!

I like it better with the pumped in crowd noise. But I want to be the guy triggering the samples and do it in the completely wrong context: huge cheers for a random throw-in, whistles at mundane goal kicks, etc.

Play by play is fine, but it needs to be closer to the European soccer approach.  Simple, fairly quiet, and allowing for stretches of silence.  Most color commentary is pretty pointless.
