In this photo taken in 2010, Denver Broncos video operations director Steve Scarnecchia is shown in Englewood, Colo. The NFL fined the Broncos and coach Josh McDaniels $50,000 each on Friday, Nov. 27, 2010, because the team's video operations director broke league rules by filming a San Francisco 49ers practice in London last month. The NFL investigation determined Scarnecchia took the six-minute video of the walkthrough and presented it that day to McDaniels. The coach declined to view it. Scarnecchia was fired by the Broncos.
