A 7News photog was present during Dolphin practice yesterday and filmed one of the players doing the regular peptalk yelling profanities at the top of his lungs.
7News aired the video during all its newscasts even though Saban and Dolphins PR people objected
Before showing the video Steve Shapiro joked about it saying that Dolphins coach and PR people did not want 7News showing the video but that “that is two good reasons why we are running the story” after the video aired Shapiro joked that “I never was able to take orders”.
That allegedly sent the Dolphins whining and banning 7News crews from Dolphins Practice.
7News has aired video with profanity laced peptalks from Dolphins training before without any repercussions.
Judging by the report they aired at 5pm 7News aren’t losing any sleep over the ban at all. They remain totally unapologetic.
