    Never at a loss for controversy, Harrison won't tweet during Pro Bowl

    In the regular season, preseason and postseason, NFL players can get fined if they use Twitter at any time from 90 minutes before kickoff until after they’ve takled to the media after a game. But in the Pro Bowl, not only will players not be fined for tweeting, but it’s actually being encouraged, with computers on each sideline.

    One of the NFL’s most-fined players isn’t fine with that.

    Steelers linebacker James Harrison went on Twitter this afternoon to inform his followers that they won’t be hearing from him during the game because he doesn’t see the sense in the NFL’s policy.

    “Why u think the NFL ‘wants us’ to tweet during the Pro Bowl but wont ‘let us’ til 90 min AFTER a real game? I wont tweet during today’s game,” Harrison wrote.

    Harrison is slightly off-base about what the normal NFL Twitter policy is: The 90-minute rule is for 90 minutes before kickoff, not 90 minutes after the game. But it’s not surprising that Harrison has found another NFL policy he doesn’t agree with. Let’s just hope he doesn’t get fined for any helmet-to-helmet hits during the Pro Bowl.

    I believe, although not positive, that the Steelers encourage players not to tweet until 90 minutes after but as was stated it's not an NFL rule.

    I guess he figures he's got one last chance to stir the pot before the last game is played.
