Sidelines Part 2
By Robert Hanashiro

A good news - bad news report: at the recent Kick Off Classic at the Meadowlands, USA TODAY's Bob Deutsch reports though it was a college game, the network requested and was granted by the game's organizers a "TV Zone" in front of the other sideline photographers.

The work area, like that currently used at NFL games, pushed sideline photographers back an additional 10 feet. Bob said he approached an SID he knew working at the game and was told that even though they knew they didn't have to allow a special area for the network TV cameras, they did it anyway.

On the flip side, USC has instituted a new sideline configuration that has two lines: the front line for all WORKING sideline photographers and a second line for fans, alums and PWs (photo-weenies). Unlike their counterpart at the Meadowlands, at the Kickoff Classic hosted by the LA Coliseum the same weekend, there was no special work area for network TV cameras.
