The Covert War on the Comcast Center Continues

This is my favorite thing in Philly right now (which says a lot about our local sports teams)– 6 ABC’s covert war on the Comcast Center.

As you might recall, last year we showed you the differing treatments given to the mega overlord’s home by NBC 10 and 6 ABC. The tower, in NBC’s rendering, appeared as a shining beacon of light, keeping watch over the dark, dingy city of Philadelphia:

In 6 ABC’s rendering, it appears as though someone at Comcast-NBC forgot to pay the utility bill (irony):

Now we see David Murphy’s chilly(!) weather forecast and note that, yep, the Comcast Center is missing. Here’s where it would be:

It’s been a rough week for the Empire. On Tuesday, we learned that their building was curiously absent from the skyline portrayed on Eagles draft hats. Yesterday, news broke that Comcast’s merger with Time Warner was just about to be called off (official today). And now this– Comcast can’t even get its giant tower included in a cheap rendering of a completely empty ballpark.

Other things wrong with the image:

1) There are too many people.

2) I don’t know what the fans in left field are on, or what the giants inhabiting the power alley did with them, but quite frankly, I’m frightened… and also wondering whether any of those guys can bat cleanup.

    1. if you cared so much about the roast, why didn’t you go?

      here’s what happened, IT WASN’T FUNNY AND WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME.

      any questions, go to conklin’s web page and listen to his boring material.

  1. Besides the fact that no one would notice this shit watching a TV show and the people that create these graphics aren’t trying to be 100% accurate on the Philly landscape (they may be going off of a 1990 drawing of the landscape), I would conclude that “H/T to (@Derek_A_Smith) and (@johnnyrockets27)” need to get jobs.

  2. in all fairness, that stadium looks like it was built on the first Sim City before the Comcast Center was there

    1. Well, at least it looks like they got the crowd size correct in that rendering…
