New TV for GF's Stepdad's office. It will be PRIMARILY (almost SOLELY) used to watch sports, especially football, head-on (not at any angles), in a bright room.

I know plasma's are better for motion and have superior PQ compared to LED.

But this time, would a LED maybe be a better match for what he wants?

He's not going to baby a plasma, or break it in, or be smart about watching varied content and making sure there are no HUDS left on it for long times.

I'm worried since he will pretty much only watch sports that a plasma would have severe IR from the score bars.

Am I right?

I would get a good LED. Take a look at the Samsung es6100.
