Professional sports and your local cable provider — the relationship is essentially built to screw the customer, unless you are willing to pay crazy money for a subscription to view all of the NFL’s telecasts live. Sure, a few games will be on the big stations like Fox and CBS, but if you happen to live in an out-of-market territory from your favorite team, forget about it.
With that being said, starting this upcoming season, the NFL is sort of getting with the times, bringing true, on-demand streams for all games, no matter where you are with Game Pass. Although, be aware of one major catch. (more…)
The NFL is partnering with YouTube, launching a special channel for fans to get their fill of highlights and gameplay. While the NFL won’t be streaming any games, the League intends to publish weekly content for viewers that highlight the best of what the NFL has to offer the viewing public. (more…)
One of the first thoughts that came to mind after Motorola told us that they had partnered with Horween Leather to produce the leather used for the backs of the new Moto X (2nd gen) and the bands for the Moto 360, knowing that this is the company thats materials are in NFL footballs, was how they would figure out a way to tie-in this country’s most popular sport with their new flagship phone. Now we know. Well, sources told us about this a couple of months ago, so we can’t say we are exactly shocked. But yeah, the Moto X (2nd gen) now comes with an optional NFL leather backside. As in, your Moto X could be a football. (more…)
As a quick reminder, be sure to go sign-up for the DL NFL Eliminator Challenge! The first NFL game of the season is tonight, and you won’t want to miss out on week 1’s pick.
For those not familiar, just know that this is the simplest NFL contest you can be a part of that only requires you to pick the winner of a single game each week of the season. If you come away as the top dog, you get a phone of choice, purchased by DL.
All the info you need to get signed up can be found at this post.
It’s back! Our yearly DL NFL Eliminator Challenge is now open and ready for entries. This is our 4th year hosting this challenge, which is a way to share our love of sports with the DL community, but also reward one of you with a phone of choice. So yes, we are once again giving away a phone valued at up to $650 to the winner.
For those new to NFL eliminator challenges, they work like this. You pick one winner each week out of all of the games being played. If your team wins, you move on to the next week. Just keep in mind that you can only choose a team one time per season, so there is some strategy involved. With that said, by no means are these challenges as intense as fantasy football or weekly pick’em challenges. This is the simplest form of an NFL challenge you can participate in.
The season kicks off next Thursday, so you will want to sign-up now. We will try our best to remind you throughout the next week to sign-up, though.
There is no cost to you, yet you can win a phone of choice. Ready to sign-up? (more…)

According to a tweet published by @evleaks, AT&T retail locations will be one of the first places the public will be able to purchase Google Glass. The question, since Glass was first revealed, has been when can we get it, and for how much?
The Google Glass Explorer program is currently open to anyone willing to pay the $1500 entry fee, but the general public would do much better in waiting for Google to announce the finalized version of the hardware and software. (more…)
