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.
