    I think the twitter impact by the people who participated in this round table is totally overstated for the sake of sounding cool, and identifying with a generation that created this new communication medium. Its retarded to say that tv is less important than twitter to fans consuming the NFL. If it was, the NFL wouldn’t be making multi-billion dollar deals with all of the TV networks to broadcast its games

    We are totally moving backwards as a society if that’s the case (social media is more important). People used to huddle around a radio to listen to college football/MLB/NFL, TV took its place and let us all see the game as it happened, now I am supposed to believe that some douchey 20 something tech nerd…that summarizes how he is feeling about a play in 144 characters gives me more of a reason to live as a sports fan, than watching it firsthand on tv?

    Faux Nerd Sports Fans: Go to a bar on Sunday, have some beers, make some real friends that you can communicate with in more than 144 characters at a time. Hell, you might even get lucky as a result. This vicarious living through social media voyeurism creeps my ass out.

    haha, as someone who is a member of this generation, i couldn’t agree more. some of my peers’ obsession with social media and their phones is absolutely pathetic.

    though i’m not sure they’re necessarily overstating the impact in their own lives. i think that in their bubble, this is the case. sadly.
