You can't really blame them for picking out the most attractive people in the stadium (men or women) to be aired, but when certain people start talking "upskirt" shots of the crowd....you're gonna have a lawsuit on your hands....
DETROIT -- Tigers photographers routinely shot inappropriate "soft core videos" of female fans at baseball games, a sexual harassment suit by Comerica Park's former scoreboard operator claims.Riiiiiiiight. Angle of the cameras. With the popularity of people like Jenn Sterger you could probably start your own website with the images. Illegal as hell but a great idea.
The videos were "freely and openly shown in the scoreboard area to all employees and supervisors on almost a regular basis," and are stored in a room behind the scoreboard, Reanen Maxwell of Beverly Hills says in her Wayne Circuit Court lawsuit, which was filed Feb. 22.
The man, who up until last year was in charge of the scoreboard and selecting and recording crowd shots, Scott Fearncombe, said Wednesday any such reports "were never brought to my attention, and I don't know of any secret stash of videos."
Up-skirt shots would have been technically difficult from the dugout-level cameras, he said, "because of the way people are sitting and the angle of the cameras."
