"Tampa Bay Bucs Buy Players iPads":
Coach Raheem Morris came up with the iPad idea, after using an iPad to watch a video of one of the draft prospects. The players will not only be able to access playbooks on the tablets, they can also watch videos of games, practice, and other teams.
Another potential benefit:
The new iPad initiative will also be good for team security. "We give these playbooks out, and by the end of training camp, we collect them so nobody sells them on the Internet," Morris told the Times. Plus, if someone loses a "playbook," or iPad, it's actually better than leaving behind a physical playbook -- "You've got a way to wipe (everything) off with the push of a button," Morris said.
