Playing Guard for Bentham's Basketball Team

An update on how the NBA is policing the new dress code, via ESPN:

To police what its players are wearing when they enter and exit arenas on game nights, at least one league-appointed observer is stationed at every game and supported by an in-house review of televised game coverage and still photography.

Clearly, this works in the enclosed space of the sports stadium, which may be thought of as analogous to the other sites of Foucauldian discipline: the prison, the barracks, the factory, the school. But here's the question I'm interested in: To borrow the language of network society, is the panoptic gaze scalable?
