NFL, Audible bringing game broadcasts to iPods

The National Football League and Audible today announced an agreement to make recordings of this year’s remaining playoff games available for portable audio players, including Apple’s iPod. Football fans will be able to purchase the recordings at Apple’s iTunes Music Store starting next week. The first recordings for sale under the agreement will be this Sunday’s NFL conference championships, according to the two companies. Replays of the Super Bowl will also be available under the deal.

Is anybody really going to use this?  In all seriousness, who would listen to a game recording?  I can see WATCHING a recorded game, but listening would just bore me to tears.

Wow, that’s one of the dumbest ideas I’ve heard of in a long time.  “...which will be available on the Internet the following morning”.

I wouldn’t download this for free, and I like football and my team is still in the playoffs.

If my team were still alive I might download the NFC title game and Super Bowl and archive it as a keepsake.  So in 15 years I can go back and listen that would be kinda cool.  But I can’t see listening to the Falcon-Eagle game on my ipod after the game is over. I hate both teams and I’d be bored. Maybe Apple should just include a am-fm radio w/ the ipod already and let us listen to sports events live for once. It’s a good idea but also a very limited one in it’s usefullness.

If you want NFL, get Sirius. So, when are we getting a Sirius or XM adaptor to go with the iPod?
