Why don't they use 1st person angles more in sports?
would make the running plays more exciting to watch. Certainly for basketball, soccer, rugby. Show how hard sports are

I love when they show pitches from behind the catcher. I dont know why they dont do that more often. It gives you a better sense of how ridiculously hard these dudes are throwing.

Usually they cut away and go back to the centerfield camera which makes it look like the pitcher is right on top of home plate.

I know some football teams have had a RB wear a mini camera in their helmet but not sure if those could last with so many hits

I think itd be cool to see what the qb and rb see. Makes me think of the old NFL 2k5 video game with 1st person football

great concept. Imagine watching some badass highlight run, then you watch it in the runners first person as he’s cutting back, breaking tackles


I feel like it would be ridiculously shaky. Maybe they have some tech to combat that...

I've always thought football would be better presented in a behind-the-quarterback viewing format, similar to what we see in most football video games. It allows for a much better look at how holes open-up for running backs and showcases passing routes. This view is never used during game play, thought it's often seen in instant replays.

University of Washington had a helmet cam for the QB one year off and on...

Showed how ridiculously hard it is playing QB at the highest levels.

I thought Fox CFB did a cam with one of the refs behind the offense. Actually it was really cool to see the OL movement to see play developing
