The NFL is making teams across the league install cameras in their locker rooms in a move that has been met with some skepticism. The cameras will broadcast footage from inside of the locker room on to the scoreboards so that fans will receive an enhanced in stadium experience.

While it is an interesting idea, it’s not original.

The belief from Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is that the league got the idea from the Dallas Cowboys.

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

With the Cowboys locker rooms having cameras for the past few years and the lack of complaints from players, it would be surprising to see any players or player representatives come forward now to express any concerns.

What are your thoughts on the cameras in the locker room? Is it something that you like to bring the game closer to the fans or should the locker room remain sacred? Sound off in the comments section and share your thoughts with us.
