News outlets wait outside Fine’s home on Friday

first_img Comments Published on November 17, 2011 at 12:00 pm An empty hammock swayed in the breeze. A pot lay tipped over in middle of the lawn. Friday’s newspaper sat untouched in the mailbox in front of Bernie Fine’s home. The Fine house seemed isolated from the rest of the neighborhood as a small cluster of cameras and reporters standing in the street focused its attention on any movement coming from the house. It was a waiting game for the media. Waiting for any opportunity to document the smallest piece of information available that could be gathered from the home. Television crews from ESPN, Fox News and the NBC affiliate in Buffalo all stood in the street outside Fine’s home. Writers from The New York Times and The Post-Standard also waited outside. There were never more than 15 media members surveying the home. Reporters and cameramen congregated and chatted while waiting for that opportunity. And when a silver Acura SUV rolled up the street and turned into the Fines’ driveway, the media went silent. The cameramen that at times seemed removed from the situation quickly jumped behind their viewfinders to capture any semblance of a key moment.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text It was one of the few times Friday when something actually happened at the house. Aside from a couple quick peaks out the window by the people inside, the Fine home did not provide much activity. When the SUV pulled into the driveway, a young, unidentified woman stepped out and quickly made her way into the house. She left about an hour later, and another woman was seen in the house as she left. Neither spoke to the media members outside. David Rudoni, a satellite engineer for ESPN, said the network had cameras at the scene since 9 a.m. He added that around 10 a.m., Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim, who lives with his family directly across the street from Fine, left his home and stopped in front of the camera crews. Rudoni said Boeheim told them not to bother filming because Fine was not home before driving away. Boeheim’s comment and the woman who pulled into the Fine’s driveway provided the only abnormalities of the day at the house. And for the media waiting outside, it was a largely uneventful site.
