How did you find the drone coverage and constantly live microphones?
I found the drones mostly annoying with their fuzzy images. Constantly zipping around the field might interest youngsters, but I thought them mostly a distraction. The live mics might add colour and flavour for those who actually played the game, but I felt that most of the audio feed was nothing more than extraneous noise.
I do agree that the plodding nature of NFL games makes them only watchable (for me) if I use the skip/Ffwd buttons. When doing so, I can watch an entire match in 40-45 minutes.
