Earlier this week, the NFL announced that home teams will be required to put cameras in the locker room for pregame and halftime images (and possibly sound) that will be displayed on video boards and/or smartphone apps.

Apparently, the NFL didn’t get the input of the NFLPA before making this change.

NFLPA spokesman George Atallah has issued an open call via Twitter to any players, and particularly player representatives, who may have concerns about the move.

It’s unclear whether the use of cameras in the locker room falls within the range of what labor law calls a mandatory subject for collective bargaining. It is clear that, at least for now, the NFLPA is reserving the right to fight.
