While Roger Goodell and the NFL have several issues to worry about (concussions, decrease in ratings, off-the-field issues), they’ve decided to first crack down on the most important one of all: social media.
ESPN reported earlier in the week that the NFL has banned teams from sharing their own videos and GIFs, and a violation of the policy could result in a fine. The first fine is worth $25,000, the second is worth up to $50,000 and every fine after that could be worth as much as $100,000.
During Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Carolina Panthers found a way to avoid the NFL’s new policy in a since-deleted tweet:
Hopefully the Panthers don’t get fined for this one.
