The Miami Dolphins have a request for fans who come to training camp: Don’t let the rest of the league see what we’re doing.
The request came after parts of Dolphins practices were seen on YouTube, and the Dolphins were concerned that opposing teams would watch the videos and get an edge heading into the regular season.
“We have rules in place that don’t allow fans to take video of practice,” Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said. “Those rules exist so that we’re not placed at a competitive disadvantage by having the teams we play see video of any portion of our practices.”
Although there’s no evidence that opposing coaches and scouts are scouring YouTube for tips, the Dolphins don’t want to take any chances.
“I’m sure that our fans understand that concern,” Greene said, “and I’m confident they will follow our camp guidelines to prevent that from happening again.”
