Watching Grass Grow
For most people soccer is boring to watch because broadcasters are not delivering the action of the game to our living rooms. Watching soccer on TV is about as exciting as watching grass grow because, for the most part, that’s exactly what you’re doing – staring at grass. Soccer has the smallest player size-to-screen ratio of all prime time sports. The TV cameras are zoomed out so far that they capture more grass growing action than soccer action.
Where’s the action?
Compare screenshots of soccer to other televised sports; the average on-screen height of the players is drastically less than football, basketball and baseball. The cameras are panned out so far that the players look like ants and the ball is a mere nearly invisible speck; the action is too hard to see.
Watching soccer on TV is no better than sitting in the worst seat at a soccer stadium; in contrast to football, basketball or baseball where watching on TV is at least equal to the BEST stadium seats.
Soccer will never reach popularity levels enjoyed by other major sports until it can deliver the excitement and action of the game to the living-room
Due to the fast paced, multi-directional nature of the game, Soccer cannot be broadcast like other sports.
Move the Cameras
Like tennis soccer should be filmed from the ends of the field, not from the side. Cameras should be positioned in the four corners of the field; as in tennis this makes sense due to the movement of the ball.
There is a trade-off between capturing the action and capturing the position of players on the field. When cameras pan out to capture the entire field it’s at the cost of action and viewership.
This is the Irvine Specturm Center in Irvine California – 75% of the available land is consumed by transportation concerns?
Here is the Irvine Spectrum Center currently with 75% of it’s land dedicated/consumed/employed/used/occupied??? transportation (parking lots and roads), which
leaves only 30% of the land available for rental space.
Here is the Irvine Spectrum Center with 10% of it’s land dedicated to transportation (transit stations), leaving over 70% of the land available for retain and office space rental.
Here is a typical … the Irvine Spectrum Center in Irvine Ca. 80% of land use is dedicated to transportation.
Here’s how much it currently holds; and here’s how much it could hold. Land usage potential.
Currently far below it’s potential $/acre.
Here is an image of the Irvine Specturm Center in Irvine California and it’s surrounding land. Of all this “developed” land only 30%….. 70% is
dedicated to transporation purposes (parking lots and streets).
Making lots of money in the green, but none in the red. Losing money in the red.
Retailers Paradise. Hyper-development. Hyper-developed land.
Basically, there is no transporation requirement. Value per sq/ft is basically unlimited. Or the ASDF ratio is very nearly 1. Ratio = Land available / land making money (rental available for rent land)
This (the old way) isn’t developed land. This (the new way) is developed land. Under-development. Under developed land.
Now that!!! is developed land. Hyper-development. Over 84844848 sq/ft of retail/office rental space in 4mill sq ft. That’s a 0.8 % land usage rate.
How “GREEN” can you make the land? Now that is some “GREEN” land!
Land previously used as parking lots is converted into rent-able retail and office space.
Customers ride. Stations, track and pylons make up the transportation infrastructure. Maximum land value.
