Pro Bowl Player
I doubt that this will be what happened. I'm sure they had permission to film inside the pressbox, but that is different than filming the Bengals sideline. BB said immediately the next day that the film crew broke the rules. I really don't think the penalty will be major, because I highly doubt there was any connection to football operations other than the fact that the fime crew was there to do a story on football operations. That does not change the fact, however, anyone who is part of football operations remotely familiar with "spygate" should know the will treat the Pats differently than the other 31 teams in a situation like this and yes step in and tell the jamokes with a camera to not traini the film on the Bengal's sideline!!! This was such a stupid F'ing unforced error!
I didn't say they had permission to film the sideline. I said he might have asked if they had permission to film.
