Went to last day of OTA's today

Sorry folks, took them down from YouTube as well.

Now that I know the Panthers FO has an issue with these kinds of vids, I don't want to wear out my welcome at Mini-Camp, OTA's, etc.

If practice is open to the public, then it's OK to film them. Did you see a lot of signs that said "No Filming Allowed"?

Well, technically Mini-Camp and OTA's are not "open" to the public but on the other hand Danny Morrison (team president) makes a point of walking around and thanking everyone for showing up. If large crowds began gathering at these events they might start chasing folks away, but I have never seen more than about 30 people there on any given day. It really is a special treat to be a fan of a team where you can walk right up and mingle with these guys, I hope that never changes...

I didn't see any signs regarding photography or videos and nobody has ever said anything to me when they saw me with my camera up, but they may have assumed I was taking pictures and not recording vids?

I would NEVER knowingly do anything to create any sort of competitive disadvantage for the Panthers, or harm them in any other way. I was posting these vids with a clear conscience because I considered the stuff I was capturing to be pretty generic.

I do know that once the season starts the Panthers get much more sensitive about folks standing along the fences, taking pictures at practice, etc, for obvious reasons (especially the week before the Patriots game, LOL). I took the fact that the Panthers allow you to line up along the fences, take pictures of practice, etc as a cue that there was nothing sensitive being exposed in these Mini-Camp/OTA practices.

I totally respect and understand the Huddle's desire to avoid issues with the Panthers FO, I have no problem with that. Knowing that the Panthers FO frowns on these kinds of videos also made me remove them from YouTube, because I don't want to show up some day and be asked to leave because I'm the guy that records vids of Mini-Camp and OTA's.

I may attempt to contact the Panthers before I make the decision to post those vids again and see if they object to any of them.
