      But since you weren't using a cheap LCD there was better motion clarity.

      you literally couldn't see the puck

      Remember when some network tried having the puck's location highlighted and people got all butthurt about it so they stopped?

    You actually saw more of the field because cameramen tend to zoom by width, rather than height.

    It's been so long that I forgot. Last time I had a CRT was back in 2008 and I was 31 at the time.

      I watched other things on CRTs, just don’t specifically remember it. But to watch my team back in 2007 I had to go to Buffalo Wild Wings with my dad

    They were fine. The modern (over)production and intentionally distracting AR have been the biggest change in watching sports.

    Now get off my lawn.

    Only problem was recording games was a colossal pain in the ass (think VHS). Everything else was better from the leagues themselves to the broadcasts to the highlight shows.

    Never really thought about picture quality until HD came out. It was more about if you had shit signal one day due to weather or your aerial

    quality used to be more variable in general
    if it's a proper SD stream then it looked almost as good as an early LCD, way better black levels
