PORTLAND, Ore.( TheStreet) -- If the National Football League is serious about wanting to put more fans in the seats, maybe it should figure out how to make mobile apps more of an integral part of the game and less of a distraction from it.NFL game attendance jumped from a post-recession low of 17.14 million in 2010 to 17.3 million last year, but was still well short of the record 17.6 million that came out in 2006 and 2007. There were nearly 1 million empty seats at regular season games last year, up 50% from just four years earlier. Meanwhile ticket revenue has stagnated from increases of 7.2% annually from 2004 through 2008 to just 2.1% from 2008 through last year, according to Team Marketing Report.
