Control the Tweets


If I were commissioner, my solution would be to have NFL players register their Twitter accounts through the NFL and run their tweets through screeners.

Instead of making an elaborate policy sure to be wrought with loopholes and thus almost impossible to enforce, use basic commonsense and sense for tone, intention and controversy. That shouldn't bottleneck the flow of tweets or strip them of their humanity or individuality.

In fact, it provides NFL players with a service more of us need: a filter between us and our impulses.
