We had a sloppy telecast tonight.
But, all in all, this was a good telecast.
I make this statement because we did not let the mistakes snowball into bigger and bigger mistakes.
I believe this is one of the biggest problems for the less experienced members of our broadcast community. The less experienced members of TV sports production teams allow mistakes to effect them and their performance and, thus, the quality of the telecast suffers.
The members of our broadcast community with the most experience understand this "law".
This broadcast community consists of EVERYONE who is involved in a TV sports production. From the runner to the Producer, the most experienced members of our fraternity understand this "rule".
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE PERFECT TELECAST!
Mistakes will be made.
Keep doing the responsibilities of your job as good as you possibly can!
You can't stop the game and redo a play.
I would like to offer some advice to the less experienced members of our wonderful broadcast community.
YOU WILL MESS UP.
YOU WILL MAKE MISTAKES.
Here is the best advice that anyone can give to a member of our broadcast brotherhood:
Don't make the same mistake twice.
Follow this advice and your contribution to the telecast will increase in value every show.
Off Saturday (Big Fox) and sunday (ESPN)
