But I figure it was worth a shot.
My letter to KPLR-11.
While watching the St. Louis Blues game on Saturday evening, I could not help but notice that the center ice appeared very washed out during the broadcast. So much that I could not follow the puck or identify the players. Either end of the ice had a very good picture from the same camera. Only the center ice was hard to view.
I have confirmed with friends that it's not just my television set. I have also been told that Fox Sports Midwest uses the same cameras and they do not have the same issues with the center of the ice rink. I believe this is due to either the cameras not being adjusted correctly for white balance or that the signal could be corrected before it is broadcast.
As a Blues fan who endures all of the commercials during your broadcast of Blues games, I would like to request that your station does "whatever it takes" to fix this issue in the future. With ticket prices dropping and the current special offers by the St. Louis Blues, I may find it necessary to buy a ticket for any home game that KPLR-TV is going to broadcast and attend the games instead of suffering through the deplorable picture on my television set.
At the very least, it made me feel better.
