The criticism of content on the NFL channel reminded me of a query I'd forgotten about.
NFL Films are in part legendary because they were recorded on premium film stock, as opposed to videotape, right?
So why hasn't NFL Films had a larger presence on the ESPN HD channel. Seems like it'd be a great way to showcase both technologies. Because, presumably, since we've only seen NFL Films segments on analog TV, we've never seen them in their true glory.

They probably will but only on the NFL Network HD channel. Too bad timewarner doesn't get that one.

We will probably never get the NFL Network. I ask Time Warner about if they were ever going to add it & they said the NFL's asking price was just too high.

IMO we would be doing good if we got ESPN2HD.

The fact is that the resolution of HDTV even at 1080i exposes film for what it is... an outdated grainy medium. Once you step up to 720p it's not even close, I don't care what the hippie fans of film tell you. The days of film being superior to videotape are long since over.
