It seems to me that if one is on the sidelines of an athletic event that involves high speed individuals of considerable mass who are paying attention only to an oblong pig-skinned object, then one should be paying attention to those aforesaid individuals, or have an assistant who is doing so.

Yeah in a perfect world...but that is a lot easier said then done. ;)

live sports are unpredictable. You never know what is going to happen. It's like they say in the center of the ring before every fight: "Protect yourself at all times." Good advice.

It can happen so fast and so unpredictably, it's not as easy as it sounds. I was shooting from the back of the end zone last Friday night & a ball carrier was hit at the one yard line. He was hit so hard that the combination of his momentum & the hit caused him to fly/slide all the way through the end zone & 3 or 4 yards past to within a foot of my legs. It happened so fast that I had no chance to react fast enough to have been able to avoid a collision had I been standing a foot or two closer to the back of the end zone, plus, when looking through the lens, it especially impacts your perception as to your proximity to the action.

Once upon a time, ENG crews were 3 people and you had extra eyes to help cover the talent's assets but now, with tight-wad bean counters running everything, reporters are having to be their own camera operators, sound person and (when they get back to the station) their own editors.

Maybe the industry will wake up when someone gets killed because they couldn't see what was coming beyond the viewfinder.

You 'sideline' guys should have a "spotter" that goes with you to yank you out of the way when those things come in :p

I've had a few close calls. I work on my own. I rarely have someone with me on the sidelines that can warn me, however, I'm generally following play and know when a player is approaching. Plus, you can hear them coming.

Honestly, of the close calls I've had, it has been because I waited until the last minute, because I wanted to get that extra shot before scrambling out of the way.

I was hit with a ball. I was on the LOS and it was a lateral pass. The lateral was not caught by the player and I was hit. No way a spotter could have helped.
