FRO, or Football Reporters Online has a well-stocked show this evening at 6 PM on Blog Talk Radio. First up is Steve Burkett of Eye-Scout, on to talk about his innovative football scouting data service “in the clouds” and how he claims SAP and the San Francisco 49ers worked to take his business concept.
This blogger interviewed Mr. Burkett two weeks ago and for Zennie62 on YouTube.com. Here’s the video from that 37 minute conversation:
Did SAP take the Eye-Scout product model? Time will tell.
Next up, this blogger talks about the NFL Owners Meeting and the competition to host Super Bowl L and LI, where the San Francisco Super Bowl Bidding Committee beat the South Florida Super Bowl Bidding Committee for the right to host Super Bowl L, and Houston then beat Miami for the right to host Super Bowl LI. That means Miami lost three votes in the space of about that many weeks: first, a bill that would have given Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross the public referendum he wanted to have a vote on the use of public funds to finance part of the total cost to upgrade Sun Lite Stadium never made it to the floor of the Florida House of Representatives for a vote, then the NFL Owners preferred both San Francisco and Houston’s bids, which included new stadiums, over that of the Dolphins.
The overall result so upset the South Florida Super Bowl Bidding Committee that its chairman, Rodney Barreto and Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross expressed their displeasure in a combination of tears and admonitions that their bid was better than the San Francisco Bid.
Here’s the video of their press conference:
