We watch this team every week -- so our observations come from a large sample size -- which is important. I cringe when an opponent's fans come by and ask us to report to them. How do we know that the "fan" isn't the opposition's scout?
I seriously doubt that they would waste time on what us fans have to say when setting up the game-plans...

They have a lot more and better film to watch and know what they are looking at and for; why waste time on fans who may or may not know what they are talking about?

Because, we know this teams players better than they do -- because we watch and analyze everything every week.

I am a database analyst. Data collection is the most difficult time-consuming job. Crunching the data, not that hard. Gathering the data = harder.

If we asked some coaches -- I wonder what they would say? It certainly wouldn't cost much to pay someone to simply read these forums and extract some info on a particular topic -- whether or not they actually used it. This is what our government does.

If they relied on fans as their inside source, they wouldn't spend late nights all week watching film... You're seriously paranoid for no reason

Re: Uhh...camera crew?

I'm not saying we should shut the board down. I'm simply talking about the value of information gathering. It is a big deal. Did you know that companies like Walmart pay 3rd party companies to monitor Facebook posts about Walmart? Data gathering is costly and obviously corporations think what other people think about their products has value.

I think that coordinating the movements of 11 players on any given play is so complicated that if our opponents are trolling for insights from this band of myopic numbskulls, they deserve to lose.

Re: Uhh...camera crew?

A number of fans sites commented on showing Sean's play sheet from over his shoulder, and closeups of Saints calls. Everyone was shocked it was alloud ,and that the NFL aired it.
I dont respect Carroll for letting people take the fall for him at USC , then running to the NFL before he is fired. Im sure hes looking over the sheet and play calling.

But can he understand it? His playsheet is sure missing creativity, run Lynch, scramble Wilson throw it deep on broken play.

I seriously think it doesn't matter. If they had anything important to say they would have said it been said behind their cards. Even if they were to get them on film calling a play they disguise them in code and change up the verbiage.

Re: Uhh...camera crew?

I was rewatching the game and it is amazing how many close ups there were on Payton and Brees when they were calling the plays.
Something ain't right!
