NFL mandates teams must install cameras in home locker rooms

The NFL will apparently allow cameras in home locker rooms next season.
According to SportsBusiness Journal, the league has mandated that teams install cameras in home locker rooms in 2013, with an eye toward using the content on team apps, as well as during halftime and other breaks in the game at the stadium. SBJ is reporting that while the cameras are mandated, the use of locker room footage is optional.
The decision is apparently part of a plan to improve the experience of attending NFL games by providing fans with footage and entertainment they can’t get at home.
“The content will be available only in stadium and the content will be available only of the home team. You can show it or not show it,” NFL Executive VP/Business Ventures Eric Grubman said Wednesday.
In addition, SBJ is reporting home teams will be made to show important replays in the stadium even if that replay doesn’t necessarily help the home team’s cause.
