I agree with what you said, but what Losargh is saying is that sometimes one guy is running down the snake from the right of your screen , and then with the camera switch from the other side, he pops out on the left side! hard to follow when you're not used to that...
I don't think you can see in any sport such camera changes. Of course, broadcasters use alternative cameras in replays , but rarely during the action.
At least, from our European point of view, it's something very uncommon.
Think about Basketball, Footbll, Soccer, any sport you want.
