    DOLPHINS: 'Stop Posting Our Practices on YouTube'
    By: Ian Logue

    The Dolphins are telling the fans through the Florida Sun Sentinal that they're requesting fans no longer shoot video of practice and throw it on YouTube....

    Hummm. Seems a little whinny to me. Public practices are just that. Anyone can watch. They should be happy. It will probley be all the coverage they get with that fiasco down there. Its not like they are a powerhouse team.:confused:

    I can see how teams would be concerned. It's one thing to write about how this player was lining up in that position, or that another player made some good plays; it's another thing entirely for film of your team's practices to be provided to the public - which includes the 31 other NFL teams.

    Since denying entry to anyone with a video camera, still camera or cell phone is not feasible it seems to me what is most likely going to happen is that teams are going to start having fewer practices open to the public. It is unfortunate, but in my opinion it seems inevitable.

    Is it part of a comedy show, like world's funniest excuse for a football team?

    I haven't been to Patriots training camp in about 3 years, but I remember seeing signs telling people not to film practice. Of course, this was much easier to enforce when people needed an actual video camera to do this. Now, the majority of the crowd can shoot video with their cellphone or digital camera. I don't know how you can stop it from happening. Posting the practice videos on Youtube is going too far, though.

    I don't know if it was a league rule, but there was at least an understanding between the teams that team scouts could not film another team's training camp practices as long as the training camp was free. Not long after he became owner of the Redskins, Dan Snyder started to charge fans for parking at training camp. As soon as he did that, scouts from other teams showed up to practice, cameras in hand. Snyder reversed his policy shortly thereafter.

    Yeah, and that's about as much research as Tomass did. I haven't paid a dime for a Horrald or clicked on their web page voluntarily in over three years now.

    Good comment. I think that's the logical outcome of this.

    I went to the Paul McCartney concert (awesome, BTW) at Yankee Stadium a few weeks ago and they were banning still and video cameras. But, there were literally thousands of people holding up their cell phones and recording snippets. The reality of the early 21st century is that unless you pat people down, there's no way recording devices aren't going to make their way into public venues.
