Why you can’t trust the NFL’s pregame tweets
A lot of people are going to watch the Miami Dolphins play the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LI.
But what if you were to tweet a negative sentiment about the NFL, or if you just want to let your inner-NFL fan out of the closet?
If you have any of those reasons, you can do that here.
You can also tweet something like “NFL’s pre game tweets have no place in America,” or “the NFL is ruining this country.”
Now that we’ve gone over what a negative tweet means, let’s talk about what a positive tweet means.
Negative tweets don’t necessarily have to be negative, though.
Here’s a good example: “I am so sad to hear the news that #NFL is going to end this season.”
Negative tweets have been trending in the NFL for years.
This is because, even though they’re not necessarily directed at the team itself, negative tweets can be considered offensive.
Negative posts can be offensive because of their content, or because of how they’re perceived.
The NFLPA says negative tweets have the potential to negatively affect players and teams, and they have put in place a system for enforcing this policy.
It’s called the NFLPA Rule 19, and it reads, “Any content that has a negative effect on a player or team is prohibited, and may result in a fine or suspension.
A team may also be suspended from future postseason competition for one season if the team is found to have violated this rule.”
The NFL rules on this rule were introduced in 2015.
It says the rule applies to “any content that is considered offensive or objectionable, or has the potential of adversely affecting the integrity of the game.”
Negative posts are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to negative tweets.
Here are some other common negative tweets in the league: “No way, I’m not gonna play for you!”
“No offense, but you should have done better last year.”
“How do I know you’re not going to vote for me in November?”
“This team sucks!”
“We’ve got a lot of money in the tank.”
“I’m not sure what to do now, we’ll see.”
“We can’t keep this team up.”
“You should’ve done better this year.”
And here are some examples of positive tweets in addition to negative ones.
Here is one that came from the head coach of the Carolina Panthers.
“I don’t know how they got that far, but they deserve it.”
“The Panthers are not winning anymore, this team is in shambles.”
“This is how it’s supposed to be done.
You guys can’t do this!”
“The Patriots are the worst team in the entire NFL.”
“My name is Sam Darnold, and I love football.
If they don’t like it, I’ll get rid of them.”
And this is one from the owner of the Dallas Cowboys.
“You’ve got to be kidding me, how many times do we have to watch this game?
I just want this team to lose.”
And, of course, there’s one from a woman who tweeted, “I hope this isn’t the end of football.”
The problem is, there are people who don’t understand that they’re being disrespectful.
“We’re just doing our job, and you’re only doing yours.
You’re disrespecting a team and a player.”
Negative and positive tweets can hurt, and that’s the reality for most NFL fans.
But it doesn’t mean the negative tweets are the only type of negative tweets, or that it’s the only way to express yourself.
