Darnell Dockett may have invited a Twitter fine

In 2009, the NFL issued a policy regarding the use of social media during games.  From 90 minutes before a game until after the post-game media session has concluded, players may not post messages on, for example, Twitter.

The league fined Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco $25,000 for posting a message on Twitter during a 2010 preseason game.

Now, Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett could be facing a fine of his own.  At approximately 3:55 p.m. ET, roughly 20 minutes before kickoff of the Cardinals’ regular-season opener against the Rams, Dockett posted one word on Twitter:  “Amen!!!!!!!!!!

At least Dockett can afford the fine, thanks to his new contract.
