Report: NFL's "In-Locker Room Camera" Idea Likely Came From the Cowboys

The NFL reportedly wants all 32 teams to install cameras and mics in their locker rooms



    The NFL has expressed interest in installing cameras and microphones in the locker rooms of all 32 teams, so that fans can see locker room scenes during pregame and halftime. It’s a serious enough idea that the NFLPA has issued an open call to players to express any qualms they have with the idea.

    But where did the idea start?

    Well, according to one report, it started with the Dallas Cowboys.

    According to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas has been broadcasting images from within the locker room since Cowboys Stadium opened.

    “They have had cameras in their locker room, pregame, showing the guys getting ready, since Cowboys Stadium opened,” Williams said, per  “They show it on the big screen.”

    If any players do have an issue with the installment of A/V gear in their locker rooms, and they speak up about it, we’ll be here to tell you all about it. And grimace at Jerry Jones for yet another bad idea.
