I don't think they meant Fox in particular. They meant they want that style of broadcast.
Didn't EA have rights to use ESPN personalities and branding for 15 years? I know that deal ran out but it feels like we didn't get much out of that besides some fictional tweets from Mark Schlereth and Trey Wingo.
Personally I'd love to see a show where you actually see personalities on camera breaking down last week's performances, making predictions on the outcome of the game you're about to play, or maybe a halftime show talking about what your team did well or where they need to improve, as well as the scores around the league (the current halftime show feels very barebones and it's just Coachman doing a voiceover).
Make the Super Bowl and the draft feel bigger with an on air recap before the super bowl, do predictions, talk about guys on your team that won awards, stuff like that. I know it won't be spot on like a TV broadcast but maybe something like "Now let's get to the AFC Champs, coming into this game they have the #4 offense in the league, led by the offensive ROTY" or something like that.
Give us people actually providing commentary on the draft other than "The (team) are now on the clock", have them mention that it was a stretch for them to draft a guy, or that they got a steal. The tweets are cool but they feel so buried and irrelevant half the time that they almost serve no purpose.
Another thought I just had, maybe the week leading up to a super bowl, add in a ton of questions from the press to sort of mimic media day. You could even have the players sitting down with a bunch of reporters around them and have them ask questions pertaining to the game.
Their answers could affect things after the game like player morale, fan happiness, team chemistry, or even give some incentive in the game. If they give a Namath style guarantee that they'll win the game, then they go out and play well early, maybe they get a little performance boost like their catching or pass accuracy goes up.
If they give that guarantee and then lay an egg early on, their performance dips a little bit. Just kinda throwing ideas out there but that would be a neat feature.
