    Is it me , or the Sprint Football App SUCKS (like a chick in a porno). The NFL MOBILE APP WAS WAY BETTER. I MISS BEING ABLE TO LISTEN TO THE LIVE GAME. Does anyone else hate this useless app?

    Yup. If the 'application' has the word Sprint in it, with the S capitalized, the app is 157.64% guaranteed to suck, and comes with a lvl 8 hate enchantment (+5).

    I like it because I don't care about football.

    OMGZZZZZZ my eyes are burning from that comment!!!



    I personally wouldn't want to watch any football on any phone. It doesn't feel the same as my 55" Samsung.....

    One of the first apps I uninstalled, for exactly the same reason.

    I see a Houston Texan almost every day that I'm at work. I worked here for two months before I had any idea what he did for a living. Pretty decent guy, though.

    He just drove by, coincidentally.

    Well being a Sunday Ticket subscriber, If I'm out on the road somewhere, I'll be tunning in to my fancast, but yes this app stinks, but Verizon outbid Sprint for NFL rights.

    The NASCAR app is actually very good, by far the best mobile app for it. Now you may not like what its subject matter is, but the app itself is great.

    The Football app is a joke. Weak replacement for the NFL app that left for Verizon when Sprint wouldn't pony up the cash they wanted.

    I was deployed during last season, but I used my NFL Mobile app on my Sprint Touch the season before last to listen to my team, the Chicago Bears. Are you telling me I cannot listen to the Chicago Bears live broadcast when the regular season games kickoff with the Sprint App?

    Agreed. You won't find a better NASCAR application whether you like NASCAR or not. I haven't tried the football app yet.

    Also agreed. The Sprint app is great.. I'm waiting for football season to actually start before trying the NFL app. I'm not holding onto high hopes for it though, since Sprint lost the NFL contract. There is no way they could be broadcasting games through there app.

    At least I can follow college (SEC - SC Gamecocks) on the app. Living far away from SC - slingbox and this app will help me stay in touch.

    NFL is irrelevant to me (ducks...)

    Where can you get the NFL app? I've looked all over the market for it.

    I don't think anyone whips out a smartphone to watch a game in front of a TV that has the same telecast... LOL.

    You don't have to listen I'll tell you what's going to happen. Jay Cutler is going to throw four picks!

    College is really what I care about.

    It shouldn't be too hard to find audio streams of NFL games over the internet, especially with us having full flash now. Can maybe get a ustream broadcast or something.

    Edit: Wow, this new version is 100% better. I dont think it will bring streaming audio/videa, but its a good step.

    Wish I could catch games, but I think this is more the NFL's issue than Sprint's. The NFL is slowly making it more difficult to catch games outside channels it wants to push, including it's own network.

    I can catch radio broadcasts of games via the internet or even the FM radio here in the NJ area covering the NY and Philly sports markets, but it's not like being able to watch it on the go.

    Anyone know if ESPN puts MNF on ESPN mobile and SprintTV? I doubt it but was just checking.

    I watched the tail end of the Cards pre-season game via Sling on my Evo.

    Gotta love it!

    I hope it integrates with the NFL.com Fantasy Leagues... Did great with Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, and Fox... But nothing on the NFL.com ones...
