    I thought this was interesting, and I haven't seen it mentioned here anywhere. The NFL is going to have players start wearing RFID tags.

    The NFL said the technology will be used in 17 stadiums for the 2014-2015 season. The teams include: Atlanta, Baltimore, Carolina, Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Houston, Jacksonville, Miami, New England, New Orleans, Oakland, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Washington. For the moment, however, NFL teams cannot access the in-game data for competitive reasons to allow the league a chance to examine its integrity.

    Counting down till the inevitable BB is hacking the RFID chips outcry begins....
