Steelers OK Tweeting But Can't Talk Shop
PITTSBURGH (AP) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin doesn’t care if his players are avid social media users. Just as long as they don’t talk shop.
Although quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s return from a four-game suspension is certain to be a subject of locker room conversation this week, Tomlin doesn’t want his players posting messages on Twitter, Facebook or similar sites about any team-related issues.
Aware that tweets by NFL players occasionally cause a stir – the Bengals’ Terrell Owens tweeted an hour before kickoff Sunday, in apparent violation of NFL rules – Tomlin said football matters are off limits.
