Here’s the opening NBC is now using for the PL which I’m told is used for Sky’s MNF.





Unfortunately, blocked in the UK. Didn't even know you could do that with Twitter.

It’s essentially the same as this one used last season for Monday Night Football with the 18/19 dates changed to 19/20. Along with it opening with a stylized PL trophy and ends with a logo box with Premier League Mornings with the NBCSN logo and a GEICO sponsorship logo.


Different music too. (“Absurd” by Fluke having been the Sky MNF theme for the guts of a decade - and I’ve heard it used by NBC for a particular feature, the name of which escapes me, during NBC SNF when Cris Collinsworth analyses a particular play in slo-mo).

Well if it’s zooming in at a super slo mo play it’s NBCEE it.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

P.S. With Gabby Logan doing a show for Amazon this season does that mean that the BBC's Premier League Show has been dropped with the new cycle, or is that still going with or without Gabby hosting?


The Premier League Show wasn't mentioned in the new season press release, but new show MOTDx was, which is going to focus on "the lifestyle and culture of the Premier League" and will be presented by Jermaine Jenas. The Premier League Show was going a lot of that at the end, with regular music features, so it looks like it'll be pretty much an extension of that, aimed at younger audiences. If that is it from The Premier League Show, it's no great loss, it never really seemed to have much of a reason to exist other than being Football Focus II, so if MOTDx is a bit more focused with a genuine point and target audience then that's fair enough. I probably won't be the target audience, but they do other shows that appeal to me.

Gabby is however mentioned in the press release - https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2019-20-football-season-on-the-BBC - so presumably she'll be filling in and doing live games throughout the season. This Amazon show is hardly going to be a full-time job. Neither was presenting The Premier League Show, really.

There’s a Tweet suggestion that Premier have put in a revised bid, whether that’s right goodness knows. I’m inclined to think it’s too late for the Big Two to get involved as the logistics of getting things together now for a professional production would be very difficult given 4 days notice.

I’m not sure what you’re talking about because the most ‘the big two’ have to provide is a couple of commentators and a booth and they probably could just rely on a world feed.

I don’t think the ‘big two’ will get involved but logistics won’t be the issue. What’s a short term logistical issue compared to three years worth of rights?

in February, ITV announced they had La Liga rights on a Friday afternoon and showed their first game on a Sunday evening. Four days is plenty!
(To be fair, they did show little more than just the world feed for the first few weeks, and their own off-tube comms came later)

The MNF titles are superb - not so sure about the new main titles. Has MNF always had different titles then - never particularly see them or the main titles as I (like I suspect many) tune in just before kick-off usually.


Moving away from football and Andy Murray's return to singles is on Prime Video now, complete with it's massive DOG. Commentary is dire - not helped at all by their being no co-commentator.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
