Fox's annoying backdrop video ads
So I am watching the Red Sox game on Fox and all of a sudden there is this video bleed behind the batter. I was doing some work on the computer and my wife happened to notice it. I looked and sure enough, there is this funny blur behind one of the batters. Fox has added their own video ads to the backdrop, an AT&T Wireless ad. How do we know? During the replay, the wall is green behind the batter. But during real time, there is a blurry ad behind the catcher, umpire and batter. Normally, there is an obnoxious local ad behind the plate. But this video ad clearly distracts from the game. It is really annoying and should be stopped.
