I'll start up a new thread sometime before the first preseason game and see what people think. I'll make a poll and see if I should do them by quarters or offense and defense again. I do think that making them by quarters ruins what this thread was initially about, but i'll do whatever the people want.
What did you initially intend on putting these up for? The way you did it would be good for studying the game and breaking down plays/players. If your intent was for people to be able to re-watch the game obviously just playing the game from start to finish and not breaking up the offense and defense is the way to go. Honestly, I think people would rather just watch the game and it would be easier to edit... assuming you would just have to take out commercials. Plus some people don't get to see the games.
That was exactly it.
When you watch the game live, your emotions are running wild. Small things seem huge and you immediately get pissed at a player when he makes a mistake. The purpose of this was to be able to study and break down the offense/defense and see exactly how they did without the original emotion. By breaking the offense and defense up into their own videos, you get a nice flow and you're able to better judge how each side was.
Plus the other reason was for arguments on here. People would say things like, "Oh Alex was horrible on this play, he should have done this" and we could use the videos to show why he thought that or why someone thought he was wrong. I saw people on here do that quite a few times and loved it.
Now that last example can be done no matter how the videos are broken up, but my original intent wasn't "oh lets rewatch the game" because anyone can do that just by downloading the game again. Plus, it's much more likely to get kicked off of Youtube if it's up like that. They don't care about the old school vids as much, the games from the 80s and 90s, but the newer games would get ran off pretty quick.
