If you attend an NFL game in 2013, not only will you be exposed to the live pro football product, but you might also catch some footage that you wouldn't have otherwise had access to at home.  All 32 teams will be required to install cameras in their home dressing rooms next season, giving them the option to air the video at halftime and other breaks in the action, according to league executive vice president Eric Grubman.  “The content will be available only in stadium, and the content will be available only of the home team,” Grubman said during the opening panel of the 2013 IMG World Congress of Sport on Wednesday, according to the Sports Business Journal. “You can show it or not show it.” Honestly, the whole thing sounds a bit gimmicky. This is the sort of thing I could see fledgling sports leagues doing in an effort to create new fans or otherwise enhance the fan experience, but the NFL is already at the top the totem pole.  However, there isn't a professional sports league in the world that doesn't fear losing season-ticket holders to their home-entertainment systems in the comfort of their own living rooms and man caves. However small, this is another effort to keep the entertainment level up at games.  The question, now, is how many teams will actually take advantage of the opportunity and air the footage. Something tells me Bill Belichick's New England Patriots won't change a thing, but some of the league's more progressive and desperate teams could give it a shot.  Regardless, there was also definitive good news on Wednesday, with Grubman declaring that in-house replays would become more comprehensive in 2013.  [Sports Business Journal]
