For the average football fan, the ability to watch the game at home outweighs the cost of attending the game in person. What's so fun about sitting in traffic trying to get to the game only to miss part of the first quarter while paying high prices for parking, eating and having a frosty beverage?
More die-hard football fans have decided to watch the game on their high-definition TVs from their couches, eating food from the fridge, not to mention having access to instant replays that show whether that player did keep his foot inbounds.
The NFL has heard your pleas and wants you to come back to the stadium and enjoy the game while being connected to the world.
The league recently announced plans to have high-speed Wi-Fi in every stadium.
"We believe that it is important to get technology into our stadiums," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. "We have made the point repeatedly that the experience at home is outstanding, and we have to compete with that in some fashion by making sure that we create the same kind of environment in our stadiums and create the same kind of technology."
For the fantasy football enthusiasts, the NFL has heard your requests as well. Imagine being able to bring your laptops or smartphones into the stadium to check out how your favorite player is doing in fantasy football or checking out highlights from games around the league.
“We want them to have access to the same information,” Goodell said. “Have access to our Red Zone. Have access to highlights. Be able to engage in social media, including fantasy football.
"When you come to our stadium, we want to make it a great experience,” Goodell said.
The NFL also wants to take fans in the stadium "behind the curtain." This year, when the referee goes under the hood for instant replay, the fans will see the same replay on the stadium video boards.
Now, Let's see what the NFL can find a way to lower prices for parking, eating and that frosty beverage.
