NFL Tells Ocho Cinco and Every Other Player There’s No Twittering During Games

It was just a few days ago that Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco vowed to use the wonderful technology of “Twitter” to speak to his fans DURING his games this season with the Bengals. Seems that the NFL, which of course has been known as the “No Fun League” caught wind of it, and has quickly put a stop to that idea.

Today the league announced that they will not permit in-game twittering by players, coaches, or others on the sidelines during games this season, league spokesman Greg Aiello told

Chad quickly responded, via Twitter of course, saying that he’s not going to listen. “Damn NFL and these rules. I am going by my own set of rules. I ain’t hurting nobody or getting in trouble, I am putting my foot down,” said Ochocinco via Twitter.

I guess that means that the wide out had better also carry a pen and checkbook during games as well to write out those checks for the fines he will have coming his way.
