I know this is really a minor thing and I feel like a total dick for even bringing it up, but the logo on the training video says "TON TV" with a space, and in the tweet just there it's TonTV" without a space.

Is there a space or not?

TRVMP’s.... HOT TOPIC!

Everything's just a bit crap and hacked together at the last second, isn't it?


Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.


Do you like Abba?

I think it's just a lack of attention to detail.

MCT seem to be heading in that direction with their designs too. Surely between the two of them they could pay a graphic designer for a few templates they could use.

How many graphic designers did the deceased Trust shell out for your during your sack of Rome-esque 'stewardship'?


The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

I see the first video from Ton TV went live today with a video showing the teams first day back at training.

 

Good to see some good quality content coming so early.

Decent effort - perhaps we can crowdfund for some microphones so we can here the interviews properly? Bit of music (muzak?) over the training scenes wouldn't go amiss either.

Promising start, 6/10.

Highly unlikely and I guess we'll see for ourselves when streaming starts, but I live in hope that these will do away with the need for a fucking camera gantry in the middle of the Cowshed ever again.

Why would MCT pay for a graphic designer when their remit, for this season at least, is solely to contribute to the first team budget? 

In any event, there are plenty of templates and software to design templates, available for free. 


You address me by my proper title, you little bollocks!

I just think there needs to be a more consistent approach to branding from organisations and if they don't have the skills in house then it's not that expensive to get help. MCT and Morton are moving into the transition period so could have shared costs to have a bit of a shared identity or, as you say, there's free templates too so it doesn't even need to be outsourced. 

The reason I mentioned MCT is that the scattergun approach to branding from Morton being discussed here doesn't seem likely to change when they take over - I've seen a few images on Twitter that seems to be based on someone learning photoshop rather than being based on any marketing plan or branding guidelines.

So to summarise, you're unhappy that MCT volunteers are not only playing about with templates and designs to find one they like and could potentially use to create branding guidelines after the takeover, but spending their free time learning new skills that could be of use to the club?

No but just don't use them for your organisation until you're happy with them.

That would be ideal but, as you say, unlikely. Sadly i don’t think these camera set-ups will provide the sort of image quality or the number of angles the BBC use for live football. So, we’ll be lumbered with a gantry any time we have a game on Alba for the foreseeable.

 

Edit: Maybe it could be set in a way that it can take over for the halfway line camera alone, and the BBC could use their other cameras for behind the goals/pitch side/etc?

The example footage from YouTube looks decent.

Also "unmanned multi-camera system in a fixed location, with additional angles as required" so I guess that one is a wait and see for what's been requested.

He's qualified at his job and I enjoy him in the content. Couldn't care less who he supports tbh.

TonTv sounds like it's going to be a proper commercial idea for the club, so having someone who can interview, present and commentate at a good level is a bonus. 

Do you swallow or spit?


We'll come back one day, we never really went away.

It is nice to have a presenter that is clearly passionate and knowledgable about his club, though.

How long do you reckon before they don't work properly and everyone complains that they're crap?

Presumably they'll be stored when not in use. You'd think.
