Apple also allow principally replays of the game and watch the and a red zone channel. What would you do improve the game experience for NFL fans bought these types of things go along way and is the these are exactly. What the NFL needs because more than any other sport it is so made for television the experience -- go to the gain in the difficult whether it's traveling to get to the stadiums which aren't all downtown.
