    I think the point of the bunker is that they cover more than one game. Most leagues have staggered kickoffs so the same team can do the 2pm game and then go on to cover the 4pm game.

    Even when games are at the same time there are economies of scale - if there are 4 simultaneous games you will still want four TMOS, but you don't need four trucks, four complete sets of technicians etc.

    Plus it means usually the TMO can collaborate on decisions with colleagues.

    If only there were a TMO who frequents these halls who could tell us...

    But the inverse is not true. The mere fact that an opinion is eccentric is unlikely to get it accepted.

    Every TMO I know works from a broadcasters truck in the car park. They don't even get in the ground.

    At Trafalgar Park here in Nelson, the TMO is in a broadcast truck inside the ground between the South and East Grandstands. Fans walk right past it after they enter through the south gate.

    At both Eden Park in Auckland (before the rebuild for RWC 2011) and at Lancaster Park in Christchurch (before the earthquake) the TMO booths were in the grandstands right under the media centre and broadcast boxes. I know this because have been in them. Not sure where they are in the new stadia.

    Worth mentioning that this concept has been taken to its logical extreme in the Canadian Football League, where they have few enough teams that they can have a full schedule with no two matches being played at the same time, and so they have one video referee who is on call for every match. Which at least stops people whinging about different video referees seeing things differently!

    which makes sense. If the TMO is going to be inside an enclosed control room, there's really no need for the control room to be transported around the country.
