I agree, Rob. There's been a gigantic technology change in sports broadcasting. I can't even remember what it was like to watch a fotball game without stopping for a review. Of course, the networks love the review because they can insert a commercial or two while the refs are looking at the replay.

I can't imagine how long it would take to watch a baseball game if umps were constantly stopping to review balls and strikes. Baseball is already too long.

You're right about the extra commercials, Chuck. Not all sports, of course, are adopting the new technology. In baseball, it's still what the umps can see.

One other amazing technological change in sports: JumboTron scoreboards. The Dallas Cowboys scoreboard is so big that (according to Wkipedia) it would take 4,920 52" flat panel TVs to equal it.

The bottom line is that sports have become more tough in terms of competition in the recent years. So apparently, yes, there is a connection between technology and people making use of it to do better in sports. However, there's a range of outdoor sports out there that don't necessarily need technology to make them even better. You could find some clues on AlarioBros. A lot of people find the resource appealing for what it has to offer them.
