Yahoo – The NFL is mandating that all teams place cameras in the home locker room for the 2013-2014 season. The league will encourage the teams to show this behind-the-scenes footage on the Jumbotron or video board, so fans at the stadium can see what’s going on in the locker room. The organizations themselves will be able to choose what is shown, so no secretive meetings or strategy sessions will become public. Rather, things like pre-game speeches and emotional celebrations can be shared with fans.
I am usually pro all things Roger, but I am a bit on the fence about this. Sure you have the chance of being inspired the rest of your life by Coach Guidry or Tebow, but I just can’t help to think about everything that could go wrong with this decision. If Cocaine Cowboy Michael Irvin was still in the locker room maybe the cameras catch him taking a quick snortski to get his blood pumping for the second half. Maybe Jay Cutler tells J’Marcus Webb how he really feels about his poor blocking on the field. Don’t get me wrong these things would be amazing television, amazing to see on the jumbotron. Seeing as I suffer from Protect the Shield Disorder though, I just hope Rog is cautious with this move. Yes we could get some great halftime speeches, but in reality we will probably get a lot of coaches forcing the issues trying to become cult heros and few misplaced dongs on the big screen.
