Marvin Lewis Place Training Camp Twitter Ban on Bengals

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis wants his team’s full focus on football during training camp. And to his mind, that means banning the use of Twitter for players currently on his roster.

Lewis admits that he’s not the most tech savvy guy, but feels that he has already seen an adverse impact from the medium on his team. “I think people have to have the maturity and the wherewithal to be able to handle it. Thus far, what I have experienced since April is we don’t have the maturity to handle it. I don’t see how tweeting is going to help us win a football game.”

The Twitter ban comes after Bengals rookie corner Dre Kirkpatrick took to Twitter to confirm a knee injury.

The decision was made by the coach consultation with team leaders who, like Lewis, saw no value in permitting players to tweet during camp.

Lewis says that a decision has not yet been reached for the regular season.

Jeremy Shockey rips NFL, Goodell on Twitter

Jeremy Shockey

Jeremy Shockey has taken to Social Media to voice his displeasures for the ‘Lying, know it all’ Roger Goodell and his takes on the Concussion issue that is taking the NFL by storm.

There are several lawsuits with more than 3,000 former players lined up to sue the league claiming that the NFL knew that concussions had long term health effects, and the league apparently told said players that there were no health effects and long term issues.

Jeremy Shockey sounds as if he’s thinking of eventually joining in on these lawsuits after a series of tweets that touched on concussions, the NFL lying about it, and saying he’ll be dead by 54 years old.

 

It would be great to give the health study on NFL players on a commercial during the games!! just want the fans and congress to know! FACT

 

The no it all Rog goodell lied to every player and told us concussions will not effect us in life that a LIE!en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_is…
