Fans will be able to purchase the remainder of any out-of-market game on League Pass once the buzzer sounds to end the third quarter. Essentially adding micro-transactions to League Pass like it's a pay-to-play game on your phone is a little weird, but it's not hard to follow the train of thought from the people at the league office. They already have the technology to stream single games to people, so simply breaking it down into quarters or segments wouldn't take much extra work, and in theory tuning in to the fourth quarter of a close, exciting game is something a lot of people do.
WATCH: Alabama is tracking students' locations to penalize them for leaving football games early WATCH: Alabama is tracking students' locations to penalize them for leaving football games early WATCH: Alabama is tracking students' locations to penalize them for leaving football games early By Marilyn Payne September 12, pm By: Marilyn Payne September 12, pm The University of Alabama is taking a bold approach to incentivizing the fourth quarter of home football games for its students.
Alabama students use the app FanMaker through the Tide Athletics Department in order to earn points, which are then going to help them receive priority in ticketing for the postseason football tickets. The app that tracks their locations while inside the stadium, which is causing concern, in order to award them points for staying inside the stadium through the fourth quarter.
Students earn points for attending a game, but points for staying until the fourth quarter. Students also earn points for joining the Crimson Chaos, which is the student athletics club, and points per credit hour completed.
While the internet is having the most fun enjoying the image of Greek life pledges holding multiple phones alone during the fourth quarter to earn active fraternity members points for games they in fact did leave early, it also should be noted that Alabama literally is giving the same weight to a football game as it is one credit hour of a completed course.
