New IBM Scoreboard

What on earth were they thinking?

Even the ATP tour scoreboard is better, can't even get live serve stats

Re: New IBM Scoreboard

I agree with you. Wimbledon site has gone so bad. SB is terrible.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: New IBM Scoreboard

Can't we get the little pop-up scoreboard which lets you look at all the scores from one glance??

Re: New IBM Scoreboard

I know this doesnt belong here but I posted in the "live streams" topic and I get a feeling it's not very active in there, so I'll ask here....why on earth is there no Wimbledon coverage on Eurosport 1 or 2 now, does anyone know?

Re: New IBM Scoreboard

What the hell? So that's why I didn't find anything on their site. The livescore board is gone? Along with all the stats? What the hell, what the hell?

Oh, and anyone else using the Wimbledon app? Am I the only one who has problems with the scores not propely updating in real time? It's several games behind the original live score and sometimes not updating for several minutes. And sometimes the whole app is freezing and I need to restart it. Maddening.

In other words:
Wimbledon livescoring = crap, where can we send our complains?
Why do we have to put up with that crap?

I don't remember Eurosport ever showing Wimbledon. Maybe 10+ years ago. They simply don't have the rights.

Re: New IBM Scoreboard

It's terrible indeed. I want to be able to see an overview of ALL matches going on at the SB, not something with with I have to scroll around over some 15 courts to see what the players are up to.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: New IBM Scoreboard

Here's the Slam Tracker

It looks beautiful. Only problem: No 2011 scores.

Re: New IBM Scoreboard

Got to add my voice to this for the record. I'm a firm believer that the organism that does not change will die - but this time!!!! Awful



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie
