Having so far only watched the Norwich-Saints game and the current Bournemouth-Palace one ( as I only have freeview) one thing I've noticed is far less histrionics and playacting from the players.

Perhaps the enforced absence of supporters is affecting this aspect which might not be a bad thing in the long run.

Of course it might just be that it's only been so in these two games

One of the commentators on 5 Live made a similar comment.

On the free-to-air channels, yes; and yes.

Hope the broadcasters soon realise how Mickey Mouse it sounds and drop it.
It is naff but I suspect they will keep it to prevent broadcasting a bit of effin' and jeffin' at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon if there was no crown noise to cover it

Watching and seeing a Chelsea defender give the ball away, but obviously no crowd reaction, in some circumstances no crowd could be a positive I wonder? Got me thinking of the odd player at Lincoln who the crowd didn’t completely take too (even John Akinde) wonder how they might get on if they knew they wouldn’t hear a groan go up if they missed a chance or similar.
