Sports television is always innovating, and everyone wants to be responsible for the next big thing. NBC was very excited to introduce a new in-game feature during Sunday’s Cardinals-Cowboys game. The Green Zone.
Welcome to the green zone.

Well, it wasn’t received all that well. Check out all the tweets below, hopefully this got back to NBC’s PR department.
You didn't even know that you needed a "Green Zone" to watch NFL games, did you! pic.twitter.com/1JBcNkmP7X

Never in my life do I ever want to have to see The Green Zone on my television screen ever again.

I appreciate the effort, but please immediately remove the “Green Zone” from all future broadcasts

Get back to the drawing board NBC. Sorry, this was a total miss.
