Memo to CBS Sports
Memo to CBS Sports:
Not everybody has High Definition TV, so if you would kindly adjust the broadcast so that an inch (to either side) is not clipped off of most of the graphics (score, time, yardage, etc) it would be much appreciated.
Your regular season broadcasts were the best out of all the networks that air the NFL. (CBS, ABC, ESPN, FOX) Why'd you have to screw it up for the playoffs?
Here's hoping you have it fixed by the time you air the superbowl, 'cause it's annoying.
(I am planning on sending them an actual, honest-to-goodness e-mail later, cause my 25" TV works almost flawlessly for everything else.)
Feh on them.

With the 2004 Masters looming on the horizon I am wondering why the USGA and the media seem intent denying the fact that there was an incredibly dumb contradiction in Rule 11-5 in 1958.The Rule set up a requirement for a player to announce which ball he wished to be his score before he played either ball. Then and only then would he be allowed to play a second ball and count that as his score.
The Rule went on to say that if the player failed to announce his intention he would still be allowed to use the score obtained with the second ball.
Using the failure to announce sentence as a justification for awarding Palmer a 3 on the hole is ludicrous and ridiculous, yet no one seems willing to mention the fact that a conflict existed. The controversy cannot be corrected but I despise the apparent fact the media and some golf rules experts intentionally hide the fact that the rule was contradictory and therefore should not be used to justify the decision that was made.
CBS is ruining the NCAA tourney, very little basketball lots of comercials. I would like to see each region of the early rounds be on a different station so people could watch their favorite team instead of what cbs wants you to watch. In the 40 years I've been watching the NCAA I think this is the worst coverage because of the quantity of commercials.
YOUR COVERAGE OF THE BBALL GAMES ARE DRIVING ME NUTTS,LESS COMMERCIALS AND MORE BASKETBALL
Complements on your football announcers and commentators. Bryant Gumble is the best.
The Super Bowl half time show was a tradegy. It was an insult to the great players, and the audience in total.
This AM at a gym in the Florida Keys, not the most narrow minded location you might find, this "show" was a major topic. To a person, young old, of all stripes of folks the opion was one of outrage at such a spectical.
I know you wish to appeal to the youth audience but come on.
