Having a rule is meaningless without a tool for enforcing it.

ESPN reports that the NFL will be actively monitoring Twitter pages maintained by players for potential violations of the rule that prohibits the use of social media web sites from 90 minutes before kickoff until after press availability has concluded.

The man to watch most closely in this regard is Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco, who claims he has found a loophole in the policy.

He’ll likely find out that there isn’t one, and the lesson will cost him $5,000 or more.
