ESPN confusing viewers with yellow graphics on ‘Monday Night Football’

ESPN yellow MNF graphic

ESPN’s first “Monday Night Football” telecast of the season was met with negative fan reaction centered around the network’s confusing new yellow graphics package.

The graphics included neon green/yellow timeout bars beneath each team and worse, a neon yellow/green down and distance arrow. The color of the arrow made fans think a penalty flag had been thrown on every play.

Fans were instantly calling for a change. ESPN has to be hearing the feedback. The question is whether they would consider a change. Media reporter Andrew Marchand believes a change would probably take a week.

You may recall that NBC had the same issue last year for their Notre Dame-Michigan game.

UPDATE: ESPN listened to the complaints and made a change before the start of the second half.
