There are some NFL owners meetings going on this week, which means everyone is all in one place, including NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. One of the things the NFL is looking to do soon is make the game day experience better for the fans, which is always a good thing.

One of the ideas is to make wifi accessible to all fans in the stadium.

"We believe that it is important to get technology into our stadiums," Goodell said at a press conference on Tuesday. "We have made the point repeatedly that the experience at home is outstanding, and we have to compete with that in some fashion by making sure that we create the same kind of environment in our stadiums and create the same kind of technology. ...

"We want to make sure our fans, when they come into stadiums, don't have to shut down."

I'm sure most of you have felt the frustration of trying to send a text or tweet from the stands, only to have the cell signal jammed with 50,000 cell phones. This would be a much welcomed addition.
