In stadium wifi and apps increase the fan experience and provides much more to see and get  stats at the same time. Some things will never change like overly hyped fans screaming and at times change my experience from happy to less great but in all that's expected when you see a game live. I surely will try to see what new advances in in-stadium wifi experiences when i go to my next game.

I would be OK with some large monitors showing the game but aside from the distractions there are other issues with mobile phones in a restroom.  I really don't want to be at a urinal and see some guy with a phone pointed down standing next to me.  There are a lot of things to consider when you start talking about the mobile experience at sporting events.  Outside of sporting events I think it's an awesome concept.  Inside the stadium there are a lot of little things to consider.

@SaneIT, bathrooms at crowded sporting events are some of the foulest places created by mankind, save torture chambers and penitentiaries. I agree --- half-time in football or between periods in hockey is not the time to be distracting people. In fact, the generator of this distraction could be liable of an altercation or riot erupted in the bathroom because of that distraction.

I've been to enough sporting events to know that any distraction in the restroom of a crowded stadium can be very irritating.  I think that when packed into tight spaces people not paying attention is even more irritating than usual so staring at a cell phone to watch the live action during a game is just going to make matters worse.  I've always tried to plan around things like halftime, time outs or times during a game that are typically slower.  Some sports are easier than others to do this with but even if I miss a few minutes of  game it's not worth the chance of dropping my phone in a very nasty place.  I do think that some sports would lend themselves well to mobile sites, as I mentioned earlier auto racing or even boxing would be great.  All those little tidbits of info you get on a televised broadcast given to you at the venue would be a nice way to fill the lul between rounds.

@SaneIT : I am not sure if that cell phone commercial will discourage people from using their handheld devices in the restroom. There are game addicts who don't care about where and how they watch it. Maybe a sign "No cell phone use allowed" at the restroom entrance may be more persuasive than a commercial, but that will be restricting people's rights.

They should also track the wi-fi usage in the parking lots and the buses taking ticketholders from one parking lot to another, then to the stadium. Between that crazy (and expensive) parking system and the security lines, it could take people 12 hours to get into the game --- lots of time to check Facebook and watch videos of players' on camera rants.

"..I'm picturing that cell phone commercial where the guy drops his phone into a urinal and has to decide if he's going to grab it or not. "

@SaneIT   lol.  Talk about a tough choice ?

@Broadway   Very true.  I am still surprised the League  took a chance to play the Super Bowl in a city where the elements could be a factor.  Will be interesting to see how this goes.

It might be interesting to see the difference in stats depending on weather conditions. Since the weather is going to change fan habit I wonder just how successful analytics studies might be seeing as the weather might be the least predictible factor. Get a miserable snowy day and there may be lots of fans huddling in the restroom or at concession stands watching on their mobile devices?
