Why does ESPN slow-mo the crowd's reaction?

    You know it's bad enough that they slow-mo the player's reactions, whether it's a simple "awww/groan" or to show us how to do a fist pump correctly... But why the hell do we need to see the crowd's reaction in slow-mo?

    No espn... it's not "cool"

    They do? I thought they were yelling and clapping in quick time. At every point. Or maybe because I ff what I've taped a lot. LOL

    i hate it when espn doesn't show the players service motion. sometimes when i'm trying to study the players motion, they just show a close-up of the server's face right until when they are about to hit the ball, then they show the whole court. argh! :evil:

    that isn't espn's feed. its from the bbc-that's why they had so many closeups of that guy listening to the world cup during the murray-roddick match.
    notice that it took several shots before pmac & drysdale explained why that dude was on our screen. because pmac & drysdale have no idea what they are going see onscreen beforehand. they're just like us(sometimes during the french they would sound a little perplexed by the crowd shots(when they would show some people in the crowd repeatedly), and would actually say, "we are getting our images from french tv, maybe this person is a celebrity in france, we don't know"

    nbc however does have their own cameras & feed(they have quite a bit more $ invested in their tennis coverage) which is why the picture quality & angles are a bit better imo.
