Interesting to see and Kudos to you for doing it and not crashing in the tunnel! Cheers for sharing.
Just my thoughts on it, maybe something to work with the director/producers for next time to get some more shots that convey the play a bit better. Would like to see how those shots cut in with the rest of the cameras.

The Broadcaster used the Segway on the opposite side of the field from main coverage side, with an HD RF link for "Reverse angle reply's". I was operating behind LCD advertising screens so that's why quite a few people were in front of me. Can't really put it on the coverage side
as there are way to many people. But your right more planning with producers/directors and we might be on to something good.
