Its never easy throwing a party thats been 100 years in the making. Cheap Kansas City Chiefs Jersesys . Those difficulties, however, will be front and centre in Wednesdays episode of Nerve Center, chronicling TSNs live broadcast of the 100th Grey Cup from Torontos Rogers Centre. “Nerve Center: The 100th Annual Grey Cup” airs Wednesday night at 8pm et/5pm pt on Discovery in the premiere of its third season. In anticipation of the episodes debut, TSN offers exclusive behind-the-scenes web preview material and videos. Visit TSN.ca and Discoverychannel.ca/nervecenter now to take an early look at the episode and the monumental task of bringing Canadas biggest annual party into living rooms from coast to coast. Director Paul Hemming navigates the on-field action, choosing the angles, looks and plays to bring to the viewers at home, a job he describes as being a cross between “an orchestra conductor and a fighter pilot.” Its a tricky job managing all the personnel and equipment that comes with an event of such magnitude. With over 37 eyes on cameras and control rooms at any given time, everyone needs to be game-ready in a split-second. Hemmings crew, however, were more than up to the challenge. “In a game like football where its 20-second, chaotic sequences thats exactly what you need,” Hemming said. “These guys are so good that they know what I need before I even know what I need.” Discoverys documentary look at some of the biggest and most difficult events and projects in Canada was allowed unlimited behind-the-scenes access to TSNs broadcast as the network delivered a classic finale in front of 53,000 across the country to more than eight million viewers. The 100th Grey Cup took 37 cameras, over 150 microphones and more than 200 technicians to deliver a high definition look at the Toronto Argonauts thrilling 35-22 victory on home turf over the Calgary Stampeders. The show also takes a look at some of the state-of-the-art equipment used on the broadcast as well as the coordination required to deliver an epic half-time show and an elaborate pyrotechnics display. Nerve Center follows the broadcast as it goes from planning stage to kick-off, taking viewers from the field to the control room and then all the way to the furthest reaches of the stadium when one man balances precariously on a steel beam 100 metres above the turf to rig camera equipment.

LAS VEGAS -- Daily fantasy sports websites are trying to get legal after a series of state-level setbacks that shut them down in some parts of the country, but officials who set policy in the gambling mecca of Nevada indicated they wont be bending too far backward for the companies.Fan Duel and Draft Kings proposed a new category of regulation and license fees that would help Nevada -- an economically small but symbolically important state -- join 41 other states where the practice is up and running. Nevada determined last fall that daily fantasy sports sites qualified as gambling and needed to shut down if they didnt have a license.But casino heavy-hitters on Nevadas Gaming Policy Committee expressed disappointment Tuesday with the low penalties and lack of criminal background checks in the companies proposal, saying it was weaker than laws passed in other states and didnt measure up to Nevadas rigorous gambling regulation.You dont know your audience, said Nevada Gaming Commission Chairman Tony Alamo. Nevada is the gold standard ... theres just not an appetite for `regulation light or `regulation not at all.Daily fantasy sports sites flooded the airwaves with TV commercials last fall, offering players quick payouts based on the performance of real-life athletes assembled into fantasy teams. The companies disputed that the activity was gambling, arguing that they offered games of skill and were exempt under a fantasy sports clause in the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.Nevada regulators countered that site executives sometimes used the term betting to describe their own product and needed casino licenses. DraftKings and FanDuel also ceased operations in states such as Illlinois and New York, but have since passed laws in eight states and introduced bills in dozens more to regulate the activity. Chiefs Jersesys Outlet. .Thats the conundrum that faces innovative products, said lawyer Scott Ward, who represents Fan Duel and Draft Kings. They outstrip the current law or current regulatory framework.New York, a huge market for the sites, cleared five companies Monday to operate under a new state law that requires operators pay a $50,000 annual fee and a 15 percent tax on revenue.The proposal presented to Nevada officials on Tuesday calls for a $10,000 annual licensing fee for larger operators and would require owners with at least a 15 percent stake in a company to identify themselves to the state.Members of the committee said they were disappointed that the five-page proposal was so short and excluded background checks -- an important step for the Nevada casino industry thats worked for decades to shed associations to organized crime. They also questioned whether daily fantasy sports would bring jobs and revenue to the state after hearing that the proposed licensing fees would yield an estimated $30,000 a year statewide -- far from enough to cover the cost of regulating the companies.Ward said Fan Duel and Draft Kings think many of the regulations that apply to casinos shouldnt apply to them, but said they were willing to work with Nevada on a more agreeable proposal because of the states outsized place in gaming regulation debates.Thats why were here in Nevada -- because of your strong history in these areas, he said. Other states look to you. Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL JerseysWholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
