Camera Row?

It would seem that the gestapo are rife already at Field Mill, after one blogger of the Stags was stopped using his digital camera at the 4-0 home win over Crawley.

Malc, who is writing his OntheRoad blogger following the Stags 2009-10 season, was approached at half time, and requested to put his camera away.

Now we appreciate that clubs have official photographers and they want to protect image rights as much as possible, but the photos on Malc's blog site, are quite clearly for personal use.

We thought all these dinosaur rules were left well behind in the football league, after all the conference has no problems with fixtures being re-produced, so why go over the top with image rights?

And, as Malc was told on Saturday, camera's aren't allowed in the ground, why on hell not? It isn't illegal to take pictures of the stand or the supporters, or are we playing that card as well now Stags?

There has undoutably been a massive impovement of late down at Field Mill, thanks to the hard work of Perry and Co, but rules which forbid the taking of personal pictures anywhere in the stadium, is quite frankly a tad childish.

We took a few pictures Saturday of the crowd, for use on this website later, want to write us a letter anyone and tell us we can't use them, because someone might object to actually being in a public place, and got caught on camera?

The way the rules continue to be used to protect things like this, continues to get out of hand, you can just see now a warning being read out by Gary Lineker one Saturday evening, saying "Before we start tonight's match of the day gentlemen and ladies, we would like to offer our sincere apologies that for reasons of copyright and decency, that the faces of the stadium crowd have been brushed out, to protect anyone who might be deeply offended by actually being filmed"

Sort it Stags!
