THE QUESTION

Should Chad Ochocinco Twitter During Games?

Provided Ochocinco is not in violation of NFL phone rules, should Roger Goodell allow his sideline and locker room tweets?

Call it what it is... Text Messaging. I simply can't imagine a single coach in the NFL allowing it during a game. What if the team loses because he was thumbing his cell phone instead of listening to the Coach? This is unimaginable at almost any level of sports competition.

I think should he allowed to tweeter only when the Bengal offense has the ball and only when they play the Steelers.

HELL no!! Why does this clown think that he should be more of a spectacle than the game itself.

Tell him you, "you can either play or twitter, but you can't do both".

If he's in street clothes, on the bench or in the stands, he can twitter his backside off.

Who cares? Is this what sports has come to? I'm just glad this clown doesn't play for my team.

The man isn't paid to tweet. He's paid to play football. That means being IN the game, whether he's on the field, or on the sidelines. If he wants to tweet, let him. Put him on the inactive list, dock his pay, and let him wear street clothes.

Twitter is obviously the future and the NFL is afraid to embrace it. This is so typical of the league. They are always a day behind. Ocho is the man and his coverage will help bring fans closer to the game. Fans will be grateful and I will be in a few years most players will be doing this.
