Great video feed. The could have done without waters as a color guy. Game was more entertaining then I thought it was going to be.

The field size was questionable. Looked and felt more like a dress rehearsal, they kept referring to the next game in china as the "big show" in china.

All and all I was impressed although this was not and ALL STAR game.

Ricky has never done this before. Ever. He's star power on the broadcast team for the sake of star power. He's a good dude though, and his kid is one talented child for sure. Also learned that I live like 5 minutes away from the Watters' household, which is pretty cool in and of itself.

The field was 40 yards, not 50 yards. All of those yard markers you saw on the field were legitimately 1 yard long. The problem? There were only 40 marks, not 50 marks. Oops.

And the fact of the matter is that the big show is the one in Beijing next week. Those four hours we are going to be spending at the Capital Indoor Stadium, or whatever that place is called in Beijing are the most important four hours in the history of indoor football.

Like I mentioned during the chat, which by the way seemed to be more focused on the college games, I was not impressed at all.

The only good thing that I can say was that the feed looked nice on my Apple TV and 55" Sony Bravia.

Other than that, it was like watching the NAIA, in comparison to a NCAA FBS program.

And to echo Firstnten, it was not an All-Star game. Bang Head

Watters and his family live like 5 minutes away from where I live. Had a few nice chats with both he and his wife over the course of the last two weeks.
