If you ask the league to see the footage that was taken from on high to show the entire field and what all 22 players did on every play, the response will be emphatic. "NO ONE gets that," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy wrote in an email. This footage, added fellow league spokesman Greg Aiello, "is regarded at this point as proprietary NFL coaching information."

...

By distributing this footage only to NFL teams, and rationing it out carefully to its TV partners and on its web site, the NFL has created a paradox. The most-watched sport in the U.S. is also arguably the least understood. "I don't think you can get a full understanding without watching the entirety of the game," says former head coach Bill Parcells. The zoomed-in footage on TV broadcasts, he says, only shows a "fragment" of what happens on the field.

For anyone with NFL Game Rewind, they have All-22 footage for some of the biggest plays now.

I have a feeling it won't be long until you can watch the whole game in All-22 footage.

Unless you've trained yourself to look at things other than the ball on the field, doesn't really matter much, seeing coach's film, but if you do, for whatever reason, start to pay attention to things other than the ball......then seeing all the pieces on the chessboard at once gets really interesting.

I was talking w/ somebody around here recently about coach's film and making it available to the public. I've thought it should be available to the public for years.

Had good seats for a game while stationed in San Diego. Corner of the end zone, front row, second deck. Could watch most pass plays develop very well. Biggest problem live is no rewind button. Limited in what you can view to a few players at best.
