I guess I should be voting for the max I'd pay for something like this, but instead I thought of it as 50 bones for a season of video? Sure. And if it's made trivially accessible...like on demand on the web and via mobile devices whenever I want....then I'd probably pay a little more.
But my points are, yes, I'd pay for something like this and, like most other content, I want it on demand and easily accessible via the devices I use.
[QUOTE=nyahay bus;4259019]I want it but why should I have to pay for it at all? NBC makes different camera angles available for free on its website, so what is so special about this camera angle that it carries a fee?[/QUOTE]
It's content that's not produced by the networks...it's produced by the NFL. Also, it already exists and is unavailable, so the issue of why we pay is to entice the NFL to make it available.
[QUOTE=KRL;4258922]I would pay for it. But I doubt the NFL will ever do it, it would put coaches
and players under a bigger microscope[/QUOTE]
That's exactly what Charley Casserly said. It's unfortunate.
Even if we don't get the All-22, I still think that the cameras should gradually zoom out a little bit once it is obvious that it is a passing play. I hate seeing the receivers "disappear" on my screen. Even if we can't see everyone at once, I'd at least like to get an idea how our CBs or WRs are doing.
As for the original post, I would definitely pay money to get access to the All 22.
I'm still a little fuzzy as to why this isn't available now? Does the NFL specifically tell the networks they can't use wide/high camera angles to show all 22 players? As it is, they show enough angles on important plays to put together a pretty good mental composite of the entire play.
How would players/coaches be under a bigger microscope? They get roasted during games and in the media NOW, often (if the narrative is to be believed) based on angles that are only telling part of the story. Maybe I'm naive but I'd think they would want MORE info out there.
A few years ago you would see the occasional all 22 replay from a camera at the top of the stadium. Now it has disappeared from the broadcasts. Avoiding criticism is a lame excuse for keeping it from the public.
