    When you open up the NFL Live app it asks you to update, however mine is stuck on the download.

    Sprint lost the contract with the NFL to Verizon... Verizon is now paying the NFL $160 million for this.

    Instead of the $125m that Sprint was paying? Seems like pocket change - especially if they dumped the Nascar sponsorship instead...

    I think you would have alot more people pissed off if they dropped the Nascar sponsorship... personally for me, I wish they would do that and kept the NFL, but chances are Verizon just out-bid Sprint in the sponsorship.

    Besides I would much rather see Sprint spend that $160 million on network improvments, it's definitly needed, there's no reason why my 3G speeds should be around 300-400 down on avergae.

    It is in 1 minute where Sprint's HQ's are, I remember having this issue when updating another app from Handson... perhaps the severs are overloaded.

    my guess would be the servers are overloaded i had the palm pre and when the 4.1 update came out i had the same problem might take a little while to get the connection to download the app.

    The way the local repair centers around here handled the CL14 upgrade, I'm not sure I'd want them fumbling around with my phone again.
