ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A new rule this year in the No Fun…I mean, National Football League, is limiting how much video teams are allowed to post to Twitter and Facebook during games. That includes its own teams, but the social media departments on a few teams are having some fun with it.
Two of them doing a bit of trolling this weekend were the Clevland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles.
But our Kansas City Chiefs are doing their best to simply get by under the new rules. Although the GIFs look like the picture on a color TV from the 80s:
The first rock was throw by the Carolina Panthers last week. The team tweeted out (then later deleted) “AndersonToBenjamin.gif,” which is probably the title of an actual GIF they wanted to use to show the 17-yard pass from Derek Anderson to Kelvin Benjamin.
And in case you think the league isn’t that serious about its new rule, it’s fining teams $25,000 for a first offense, $50,000 for strike two and $100,000 for a third infraction.
