Terrell Owens Sends Out Pregame Tweet, Can Expect a Fine
During the week, it was the Batman portion of the dynamic duo who had used twitter to start a controversy describing sexual escapades. On Sunday, it was Robin responsible for the mini-controversy.
Less than an hour before Cincinnati’s game against Tampa Bay, Terrell Owens sent out a tweet from his account. “A lucky fan wearing my jersey 2day will get a signed football by Me & Ocho Cinco! My asst will pick U out!! Good luck!” was the tweet.
Nice gesture, T.O., but that will probably cost you with the league. The downside of having a half million followers is a few are bound to point out when your tweets are illegal, at least in the NFL’s eyes. I’m sure he’ll use the “my assistant sent the tweet,” but as long as it came from his account he’ll be in trouble.
And if the Bengals lose, expect all the questions to come about Owens not having the proper focus. This is what you invite when your mind is on your twitter account just before kickoff.
