Agreed, tenfold.

This is one of the reasons I gave up my position with who I was working for. I felt a bit of pressure to produce more content in terms of TV/web viewing and I really didn't like the idea. I mean, scouting is all about analyzing the game with your eyes...and when viewing TV/web, you are at the mercy of the cameraman. Who, if you are lucky, can routinely follow the play. Scouting away from the play is a huge aspect of scouting, IMO.
