Those of us that still watch Sabre Games notice that during the intermission we are able to see into the locker room at certain times during the broadcast. The NFL is moving towards this as well.
Reported by SportsBusiness Jounral, the NFL will mandate that all home locker rooms have cameras installed to provide the fans with more of the NFL experience. The video and pictures used will be able to be placed on to the teams websites, apps, during halftime as well as other applications. Although the cameras are being mandated the teams are not required to use any of the footage.
Another note to mention on the cameras being installed is that of NFL replays during the game. NFL Executive VP/Business Ventures Eric Grubman stated on Wednesday “We’re going to mandate replays, not just after a disputed call but after a whole series of important plays, fumbles, out of bounds. Now it doesn’t matter if you want your technician to favor the home team. You’re not going to have a choice. Why? Just listen to the fans.”
As it has been in the past, the home team was not required to show replays that could be hurtful to the home team. They are now required to show all replays hurtful or not.
