The Chris Cooley Rule

You can do a lot of harm in 140 characters but you can do a lot of good too.

Much Ado About Tweeting

Once again the NFL is trying to stifle players' personalities off the field and on it.

Twitter Thought Police

With the rules for communication already established - vis-à-vis what's punishable and what's not -- having a policy addressing Twitter spanks of overkill.

NFL Control Freaks

I see no need for the NFL to bother itself with worrying what guys are "tweeting" so long as they aren't doing it in the huddle.

Goodell Better Recognize

A commonsense policy is obviously needed. After all, you don't see other top companies banning their employees from using Twitter.

Don't Fear the Tweeter

Just have players register their accounts and then let the new tool work its magic.

Tweet Nazi Cometh?

Let the players police themselves, and if someone steps out of line, poof! "NO TWEETS FOR YOU!!"

A Time to Tweet

Rather than just fine players, I would establish a policy saying players who tweet during games will have their accounts deactivated. Other times, it's up to the teams.

Twitter Not the Enemy

Twitter doesn't need any special rules surrounding its use, just keep doling out the fines like anything else.

Not While Working

Beyond that, Twitter policy should be left up to the individual teams and coaches.

Treat Tweets Like Speech

If tweets carry the same repercussions as a talking to the press, players will think before Twittering something nasty tweet about play-calling.

Not Goodell's Problem

Tweet away fellas; I've got a CBA to negotiate.

Control the Tweets

By monitoring NFL Tweets, the league could provide its players with a service more of us need: a filter between us and our impulses.

Information Monitors

The NFL should create new positions called Information Monitors, a collection of league officials monitoring all information from players through social networking media.

Teams Should Regulate

Put teams in charge of approving each post a player wants to put on Twitter.

Look to NFL Films

My policy would look much in the same way that the league handles NFL Films.
