No cameras or tweets in today’s hearing

Clay Redden AP

For those of you expecting to watch Wednesday’s hearing in the Brady antitrust case or to see blow-by-blow accounts of the arguments via Twitter, it won’t happen.

As Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal explained during Tuesday’s edition of PFT Live, no camera will be allowed in the courtroom.  Likewise, there will be no tweeting or real-time reporting permitted from the hearing.

So, basically, we’ll have to wait for the hearing to end in order to obtain any real information about what happens on Wednesday.

We’ll be monitoring all developments and breaking down what it all means throughout the day.  Sports lawyer David Cornwell, a finalist for the position of NFLPA executive director in 2009, will join PFT Live on Thursday to help us break it all down.

    Are you sure?

    Dan Kaplan tweeted last night that the case has been moved to a new court room with closed circuit tv.

    Can you check on that?

    If cameras will be running, can you please advise what network if any will be providing coverage?

    Probably because this hearing is for grown ups and twitter should be only used by teenage girls,if you’re a man with twitter……well there’s nothing wrong with that sort of thing,i guess.

    So Mike – it seems like the Judge isn’t interested in supporting a media feeding frenzy.

    Still think she’s disappointed that Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees won’t be there to further add to the circus?

    Well, kids: this is how journalism looked like b.t. (before twitter). Relying on emotionaly unbiased cold processed facts. Boring, isn’t it?

    Step outside, tweet, step back in, listen, step outside, tweet, step back in, listen…

    We are getting too much play-by-play on this anyway. I just want to hear the outcome, and maybe an after-the-fact summary.

    So why am I here on PFT? It must just be you guys’ winning personalities.

    What on earth will we do without twitter? Will journalists actually have to wait to find out what actually happened by interviewing people rather than by recycling to tweets of other “journalists” and taking credit for it?

    why would the judge not allow tweeting? maybe he should read the 1st Amendment. I can imagine what disruption it could cause, unless someones phone went off, but they can be made silent. hey Judge, its the 21st centrury, get with it.
