What are some examples of good and bad sports TV production?

I've always enjoyed NFL football, and have often wondered what are some hallmarks of good and bad production of these games (I think about this when they cut to the production booth from time to time).
I know one obvious thing might be the commentating. One thing I have noticed is that I enjoy the game more if the sound of the audience is relatively high in the mix (although there is a threshold that I don't like it to break through).
So sports nuts out there, what are some things I could notice that would distinguish a great productino of a sports game from a not so great one?
Thanks so much!
