Bengals Owens looking at a fine for using Twitter before game


Bengals wide receiver Terrell Owens could be facing a hefty fine after for violating the league’s policy on using social media networking sites on the day of games, as he used his Twitter account before the teams game vs the Bucs.

The league’s policy states no player is allowed to use sites such as Facebook or Twitter 90 minutes prior to the start of a game. Players can start using these sites again once players have concluded their post-game interviews. This message appeared on Owens’ Twitter account an hour before the start of the Bengals game:

A lucky fan wearing my jersey 2day will get a signed football by Me & Ocho Cinco! My asst will pick U out!! Good luck!

During the preseason Chad Ochocinco was fined $25,000 after posting his frustration on Twitter at halftime during a game against the Eagles. It should be interesting to see whether or not Owens receives the same fine Ocho did.

T.O. has caught a TD pass in the game already vs Tampa Bay.
