Default Sandy Grossman R.I.P.

The name may not be familiar but he had a big input into what we saw on the biggest CBS and Fox broadcasts for over 20 years

Mr. Grossman started working with Mr. Madden and Mr. Summerall on CBS in 1981 — a partnership that lasted 21 seasons, the last of them on Fox. The relationship was symbiotic. In the days before a game, Mr. Madden would insist that the crews watch coaches’ films of the teams, a practice that helped Mr. Grossman anticipate the types of shots that best illustrated Mr. Madden’s commentary....

Mr. Madden said that Mr. Grossman was the first director to widen the standard camera shot from the end zones to include the outside linebackers.

“That was such a big thing,” he explained, “because this was the time when pass rushers like Lawrence Taylor were making big plays.”

“For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.” - H.L. Mencken
