I'll say it then.
You've have thought with the chance of extra time and penalties, you'd have thought BBC Sport would have done a proper caption ready for match over-run.

That looked like that was knocked up in seconds, with little thought for content or wording.
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

Maybe it was "knocked up in seconds"?
Maybe they were waiting for presentation or whoever to decide what they're going to drop or shuffle back in the schedule before putting a caption up? Or maybe somebody couldn't decide whether presentation or sport were going to put a caption up? No point Sport doing one if presentation were going to stick their own on top of it!

Deciding who will do this kind of caption (and things like apologising for loss of sound etc) is usually agreed before any live OB goes on air.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Look what I've spotted on the Midnight Mass broadcast:

(click for bigger - see the "performance booklet" in the middle)

It's the pre 2006 BBC One box in black and white, although in fairness the fact it's appeared on air at all is probably by accident... Never mind not being able to get rid of Gill Sans it looks like its hard enough to get rid of the old style boxes.
