New Breed Of Bucs Fan Coming In 2012June 16th, 2012
Joe can already hear the saliva dripping from the legions of armchair football geniuses. Oh, 2012 is going to be one hell of a season.
In a move that will forever change coverage of the NFL, as well as fan engagement, the league is making available “Coaches Film” to fans for every single play via the NFL.com Game Rewind package. The cost is only $70 a season.
Simply put, every average bozo who likes to break down film off the TV feed has only been getting the chance to really see about 20 percent of the action. Now everyone who forks over the cash will be able to see just about everything: overhead looks, end zone feeds, etc.
Joe is very excited. Anything that gets fans more engaged and lets Joe dive deeper into the Bucs is a great thing. What will be most interesting to Joe is how various media types react. The NFL is so damn popular that Joe’s not sure how beat writers/talk show hosts are going to be able to get by with merely watching games live or simply staying up to speed via old school TV.
In an effort to be thankful for the little things in life, Joe’s pleased that this technology wasn’t available to Bucs fans during the grotesque 10-game losing streak.
