The NFL is laying down the law when it comes to Twitter and Facebook. On Monday, the league changed their social media policy to affect players, coaches, refs and even the media!

According to CNET News, the NFL will let players, coaches, and other team personnel use social networking sites, but they are not allowed to tweet or update 90 minutes before games, during games and until post-game interviews are over. The policy isn't new, but now it extends to nearly everyone who is involved with NFL games.

"Longstanding policies prohibiting play-by-play descriptions of NFL games in progress apply fully to Twitter and other social media platforms," the National Football League said in its statement. "Internet sites may not post detailed information that approximates play-by-play during a game."
