With the NFL advising its teams that cameras (and possibly microphones) must be installed in all home-team locker rooms to harvest video that can be played in stadiums during games, some have wondered where the NFL got the idea.
Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram believes that the league got the idea from the Dallas Cowboys.
“They have had cameras in their locker room, pregame, showing the guys getting ready, since Cowboys Stadium opened,” Williams said. “They show it on the big screen.”
That becomes important in light of the fact that the NFLPA has invited any players and player representatives to express concerns about the practice of putting cameras in the locker room. The Cowboys have been doing it for years now, and no players or player representatives have complained or even raised an issue, despite the fact that a labor deal was negotiated from scratch in 2011.
