The National Football League is taking a beating for their handling of player actions off the field, but the newest commercial for Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 tablet promotes the NFL in a better light, showing how pro football players, their coaches and other staff members use the company's device on and off the playing field.
By "pro football players" we mean the Seattle Seahawks, Microsoft's home NFL team and the winners of this year's Super Bowl. The new two minute commercial shows how Seahawks players and coaches watch game footage on the Surface, develop new plays on the tablet and even look at medical information if a players gets hurt.
It also shows how NFL players can chat with their families on Skype with the Surface while on the bus ride to the game. Finally, the clip shows the Surface being used on the sidelines by the coaches, even if the stadium is getting hit by heavy rain. Microsoft has already announced that the older Surface Pro 2 is being used by the NFL in a highly modified form which allows it to keep working even under extreme weather conditions.
Do you think it was a good idea for Microsoft to partner with the NFL with this Surface promotion?
