New Technology Allows NFL Fans to Call Plays against New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton Live During Monday Night Football
PARKER, Colo. - Sept. 25, 2016 - PRLog -- RII Sports Technology announced that their GameBreak Scouting Dashboards and Call Sheet Optimization technologies will be leveraged by a new interactive application for fans during the Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints game on Monday, September 26. By merging its technology with the Be The Coach application, fans will be able to match play calling wits with Saints Head Coach Sean Payton live during Monday Night Football.
Be The Coach is a new application that allows users to call plays against live situations in NFL games in real-time. Each play call is scored using real film breakdown data and compared to the play calling tendencies of real NFL football coaches. As game situations change during the actual game, fans will be able to make a play call on their mobile devices, iPads, tablets or computers and attempt to "outcoach" Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints offensive staff.
"More than 12 million people watched Monday Night Football last week. As much as we love football, our interaction with the game is passive – we watch, hope, and follow our fantasy football teams during games," says Tom Woods, RII Sports Technology's founder. "This new application allows fans to actually take an active role in a game by reacting to live game situations and making play calls in the same way an NFL Coach would. Our technology allows fans to go behind the scenes and experience a sliver of the same stress and pressure felt by NFL Coaches as they try to make the right call."
Be The Coach is conducting open beta tests throughout the month of September; interested fans are invited to create a free account and play along during this Monday Night's Falcons-Saints game.
