I have no problem with the concept itself, but I'll agree that it's no longer a primary way of people finding out scores. If I'm watching a game and they flash the score of a division rival that isn't on TV, cool.
My problem with it is that a)the size of the ticker itself keeps getting bigger. So not only is the ticker taller, they now have a spacer under it so it doesn't sit on the bottom of the screen. b) the amount of info they try to cram into the ticker. For the longest time it was nothing but scores, then they started scrolling the schedule. Then it got to the point where they started streaming some headlines. Now they're recapping innings and final moments of a game (happens regularly when the Yankees play.)
Maybe I should just pick up my phone if I need a score.
