i was listening to sirius this morning and they were talking with peter king. and he mentioned that art modell's son produced the U2 movie in 3D that is playing at the IMAX, and brought the idea of doing a superbowl in 3D. i was curious as to what my fellow football fans would think about paying 50.00 to see the superbowl in 3D at the IMAX?

I wouldn't pay $50 for it that's for sure. Unless that included a free tailgate before the game.

Any idea from Modell has no credibilty to begin with. I hate the Browns as much as the next Steeler fan but I can't stand that prick for what he did.

actually its his son, not him. you cant hold the son responsible for what the father did.

we all know if the nfl could make a killing with this they will definately look into it i am sure.

It would be so easy to do it with the old technology. All it is is two cameras with different light polarizations. I wasn't even that impressed with the U2 imax.

I don't get the attraction to this....at all. If you go to a game, isn't it in 3D? I mean, it's football, not Jaws III. I can't imagine hosting a Super Bowl party and needing to wear funky glasses on my face, ESPECIALLY if it's the Steelers.

Two Thumbs Down.

Football is usually tossed in the category of "entertainment." This it is, however not entirely in fit, form and function.

For a few years football was perfect: Directv came out with the NFL Sunday Ticket, I recall fewer commercial breaks, there were no SB half-time show fiasco's and the half-time show NEVER had it's own web page! We looked forward to the "Bud-weis-er" frogs meeting thier doom at the hand of the ferret during the commericals. :cheers: It was good stuff. Now, granted there were brain-farts like the Bud Bowl back in the 80's and other failures of commericalism to football (can't help but feel like I'm forgetting an important one).

In any event, I understand the need to bring in more fans, get higher TV ratings, yadda, yadda, but when are they just gonna leave "well enough" alone??? :banging:

HDTV is way better than 3D. I vote no.

If it comes down to PPV superbowls i dont know where the NFL will be at that point, I would almost lose interest if i had to pay to even watch games in my house.

We who have the NFL Sunday Ticket pay plenty already. But remember you said that if they ask the fans to vote for a "3D SB."

"3D? We don't need no stinking 3D."

The Lingerie Bowl? :) That "Beavis and Butthead" halftime show? The "Celebrity Deathmatch" on MTV? I could go on...

The Lingerie Bowl? How come I don't remember that one? That doesn't sound like a brain fart......at all.

If it involves football and new technology, it always interests me. I'd pay $50. I've wasted that amount of many on so many things, who gives a damn?
