“Boss Button” making it easier to watch NCAA at work

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – It’s March Madness time and if you’ve been trying to watch the games online while at work you may be in luck. 22News learned about a new feature the NCAA added to their website.

It’s called the Boss Button. It’s meant to give you an easy escape from your screen if your boss is watching what you’re doing on your computer.

A lot of the tournament airs during the workday, and some just can’t resist watching it live at the office.

With the simple click of your mouse, you can turn your basketball game into a fake PowerPoint, word document or website.

Although some say it’s a creative idea, others say it promotes a bad habit.

Dianne Schmidt of Chicopee told 22News, “Why can’t people wait till they get home or take a break when they’re on their break? They don’t need to use it while they’re working. It just seems like it’s not necessary and if it is that necessary, take the day off.”

22News spoke to some basketball fans who disagree. They say it’s a great idea and they wish more website’s had a Boss Button.

The Championship game is scheduled for April 7th. Louisville is the reigning Champion.
