Please excuse our simple website, but our marketing is mostly word-of-mouth.
We have provided spotter charts / game boards to sports media since 2005. We strive for “Consistent accuracy, alway on time.” For samples of all 2016 charts, including NFL & all CFB bowl games, please follow this link: Client Drop Box.
OVERVIEW – Our Product & Service
- THE CHART – Includes player bios, team & individual statistics, head coaches & assistants. With blank lines provided for you own notes under each player/position provided, this is meant to be your personal cheat sheet, to eliminate the need for anything else in your hands during the broadcast. Best used when printed on 11″ x 17″ cardstock, front & back. About half choose one-page & half chose two-page layouts, often customized & a duplicate for your spotter.
- DELIVERY – Typically three days prior to game date, but earlier by request using previous week’s depth chart. PDF files are sent directly to you, or to a local copy center of your choice (e.g., FedEx Office, UPS Store, Staples, Office Depot Minuteman Press, Go Postal, PakMail) w/ a BCC e-mail to you as well so you know it’s on the way. Print instructions are simple & straightforward. You pay copy costs out-of-pocket at pick-up, typically $5-$10.
- BILLING – We currently bill all ESPN networks, most Fox networks, IMG/Univ. Washington, Root Sports & the Big Ten Network. Corporate rates are slashed when announcers must pay out of pocket. Full-season rates available w/ prepayment. Single-game invoices sent mid-season & season’s end. Satisfaction guaranteed or it’s free!
- QUALITY – “Consistent accuracy” is our goal. Your credibility on-air is our top priority. But we are human & therefore imperfect, so we implore you to double-check any and all information. I personally preview every single chart before it is delivered. We alert you ASAP whenever we discover an error on a chart that went out. As our Big Fish says, “The devil is in the detail.”
- SOURCES – Our sources are school/team website rosters for player bios, NCAA.org & NFL.com exclusively for statistics, gambling websites for injury updates & various sports/news websites.
- BEYOND DEPTH CHARTS – Our software identifies all players w/ season statistics, not just those on the depth chart, so you get more defenders & offensive skilled positions you are likely to see.
- NOTES – All WRs are grouped together for quick reference. FBs, RBs, TEs & WRs can be in numerical or depth-chart order. True freshmen have pink backgrounds; injured stars gray. Team stats rankings among the best are green, among the worst pink. Individual stats include last game (L) & season (S), w/ career (C) only on two-pagers, which also include high/previous schools. We avoid duplication & squeeze in 3rd- & 4th-string defenders w/ DBs, LBs or DL, but not further specific to positions. All charts include head coach, coordinators & assistants; two-pagers will include head coach & coordinator bios beginning 2016.
“Special” means the chart is tailored to that specific announcer’s request from our standard charts.

Tony Britt Spotter Charts began out of necessity in 2005. As a talent statistician with ESPN since 1986, Tony offered to create spotter charts for PxP Pam Ward, who was tired of hand-written, mistake-filled charts arriving late in the week. In the 2015 season, we will have delivered more than 900 charts to 60+ national, regional & team announcers at 700+ NFL, CFB & HS games.
“Tony, I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work this past season. I really believe I’ve gotten better as a PxP because of your brilliant charts. I hope we can keep this collaboration going for many more years to come! Sincerely,“
– Marc (Kestecher, ESPN Radio, Jan. 4, 2016)
“Thanks Tony. And for the record, I’m always satisfied, and better yet, I’m always impressed with your timing and delivery. I really appreciate the promptness and professionalism you provide our ESPN group. Thanks a ton, and Have a Merry Christmas!”
– Tom (Ramsey, ESPN, Dec. 19, 2015)
Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
