NEW YORK – The NFL has ordered all teams to have cameras in their locker rooms next season, with video shown only on stadium scoreboards.
Commissioner Roger Goodell long has sought ways of "enhancing the fan experience in our stadiums," and this is the latest attempt to do so. The videos will be available on team apps as well.
Each team will operate the cameras and will determine what is shown on the video boards and apps. The Cowboys already have been making such videos available to fans.
NFL vice president of business operations Eric Grubman said last summer that cameras in locker rooms, tunnels beneath the stadium and coaches' facilities were coming. They have arrived, with the league mandating them rather than allowing teams to decide whether to use them.
