The Hard Cam Is Your Only Friend
CBS isn't alone, Fox, ABC, NBC, and ESPN are guilty too. CBS, however is the most agregious offender after the tournament. They love using multiple camera angles during live game action. This will always be unacceptable. It makes it difficult to see what is going on and disorients the viewer. We have gotten used to the one hard camera view in basketball, football, and hockey. Do not change it up just because you have the camera you want to use. Those extra cameras are for replays, how complicated is this? It's almost as if they are bored with their production, and need to rotate camera angles to stay busy. Live action camera switches are reserved for adult movies (so long as its not the view of the guy's ass).
