I doubt it.

Wouldn't be surprised if we see some videos on the Aeros YT channel though.

Commercials allow you to keep a beer in hand and snacks available without missing a play.

Yeah, while the NFL has too many commercials now (seriously? Two minute break, then kickoff, then immediately to another two minute break?) the structure of the game and commercials really gives you the opportunity to get up and get another drink or some food from the kitchen. You never have to worry about missing a play because you know exactly when it's going to start again.

DVR and VHS allow you to pause and get it yourself, rather than have a lapse. If you have beer and snacks every commercial break I bet you look like pre-Subway Jared. Since I know this isn't true I can determine you don't use this every commercial break so you have to sit through some. Advantage: DVR/VHS

If you use DVR/VHS and actually ever interact with the outside world, odds are the outcome of the game will be learned prior to the viewing of said game. Match: Live.

I usually hit up the grocery store when the Vikings game starts so the store is dead, then an hour later I can come back and catch up and usually catch the end live.

Gotta love the benefits of not caring about football.

Plus, I get to troll the Fantasy Football thread.

I'm able to sever my connections from the outside world before watching a DVRed game. Its harder, but its worth it to save an hour.
