I don't see the need. Unless one team scores a hatfull there really is no need for the score to be displayed, people can remember it. The time is on everybody's watch or 'phone. The elapsed match time is only on the referee's wrist. With a decent PA lineups and substitutions are not necessary. Replays of incidents only wind up one or other section of the crowd. No need - money can be better spent elsewhere.

Hopefully by displaying other scores, it'll be a reason to keep people off their phones for just a few seconds extra per game.

I miss a lot from the Stadium 'live' but I don't miss the guy behind me tapping me on the shoulder saying:
'Man U have just scored!'.

Have they mate? Have they really? Words cannot convey to you how much I welcome that information whilst I'm watching Argyle play!
Thanks mate!!

Yes, if only there was a decent PA.

If, as I believe has been mentioned before, advertising revenue from the scorboard would pay for its installation after a couple of years, then the "money is better spent elsewhere" arguments don't hold much water.
