    This is interesting. My 17 year old son asked me the other day, "how come the 'replay' footage of games from recent past seasons looks 'old' and live action is so 'crisp'?" I'll bet the network (FOX, in this case) is using film from NFL films to show game snippets from very recent previous years. This has to be a very deliberate choice as the taped/digital footage must be available to the network.

    BTW I was even surprised to hear they record football games at all let alone on FILM, I thought I was confused at first and that NFL was some other thing... So they actually RECORD and save whole football games? Why? ....

    NOT a sports watching fan....

    Not only that, rabid sports fans pay for "coaches film" so they can rewatch every play and analyze teams and other such things in lieu of having a life.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.

    That's insane! Get out and play yourself! Instead they get fat on chips and dip and yell at a box with light coming out of it, we are much cooler, we get out there and put light INTO a box

    Most elite-level athletic performances have a beauty when viewed in ultra-slow motion that often escapes the eye at normal speeds. American football is one. Basketball more so. Even baseball, that slowest and most asymmetric of all games.

    Have you ever watched an ultra-slow motion major league pitcher's curve ball from the batter's point-of-view? It's an astounding visual to actually see the "red dot" that elite hitters can pick out with ease, judge its location on the ball during only a tiny fraction of a second, then adjust their bat motion as they uncoil, and majestically pull that pitch 435-feet over the left field fence.

    Even if one doesn't like American football, for similar reasons watching NFL Films can be a visual joy to behold.

    If you guys had watched some of the NFL Films stuff you wouldn't be wondering what the big deal is. Even if you're not a football fan you'd appreciate what they're doing, it's unique in pro sports and it is really well done.
