    IPADs in the NFL?

    I always see these NFL head coaches carrying around their huge laminated play sheets on the sidelines. Why not go to an IPAD? Is this even legal???

    Re: IPADs in the NFL?

    Some teams use them as their playbooks for players. But I am not sure they are allowed on the sidelines currently.

    Edit:

    For the first time this season, the league is allowing players and coaches to have access to their tablets up until they head out to the field for kickoff. Previously, they had to be removed from the locker room 90 minutes before the start of the game.

    Not allowed. No video of any kind. Only stills are allowed

    In fairness, you'd be kicking some **** too if you had to coach the itty bitty kitties.

    Well in his defense, his antics happened after the refs rewarded the other a team a touchdown (which it wasn't) because Schwartz through the challenge flag therefore making the previous play un-reviewable. I would be pretty ****** too.

    Why the need? If you have what you need on a laminated sheet why do you need an ipad? Laminated sheet is guaranteed to work all of the time.

    Who the heck cares and why would you even ask this? Are you an apple salesman or just an enthusiastic fanboi? Sadly there is no right answer to that question.
