    With sports fans still getting used to their high-definition television sets, the National Football League is already thinking ahead to the next potential upgrade: 3-D.
    Next week, a game between the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders will be broadcast live in 3-D to theaters in Los Angeles, New York and Boston. It is a preliminary step on what is likely a long road to any regular 3-D broadcasts of football games.
    The idea is a "proof of concept," says Howard Katz, NFL senior vice president of broadcasting and media operations. "We want to demonstrate this and let people get excited about it and see what the future holds."

    If you want 3-D wouldn't you just go to the game?

    Weird idea...

    3d movies suck, alot of the time i come out feeling sick lol

    3d fast moving sports would be even worse. HD is better than some novelty act (3D)

    I love 3D. If they got the cameras positioned correctly (Think the Inside the NFL show on showtime or the NFL yearbook film) it would freaking awesome

    You guys are so shortsighted.

    Some things are just better in 3D
