PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Some NFL teams are going old school to find ways around a league policy that prohibits team social media accounts from sharing their own highlight videos.
Sports Illustrated reported earlier this month that the NFL is strictly limiting its teams from sharing their own video or animated GIFs of highlights. The teams are limited to reposting video from the NFL’s accounts. SI reports a league memo said teams can be fined up to $100,000 for multiple infractions.
With that in mind, the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns got creative on their Twitter accounts Sunday. The Browns used a video of toy football players to celebrate on Twitter after a touchdown. The Eagles used a similar video to show an interception, complete with a homemade sign.
