NFL and Twitter Release Team Emojis for the 2016 Season
Forget #epicfail the NFL and Twitter have uped the ante with a little exercise I like to refer to as #NFLNOPE, #NFLShouldntHashtag, #SeriouslyNFL. The No Fun League has done it again. If there is a plausible way to leak the fun out of something the powers to be in the NFL offices will impersonate the Patriots and slowly deflate all the fun in the room. Okay, ok that was a low blow but you and I both know the NFL is almost always guilty of Doing too Much. Go sit down, eat a few buffalo wings and watch the game. In other words stop messing with stuff that doesn’t need to be messed with. I know #hashtags are not a pertinent part of football, it is much more important for the refs to get the calls right, but I digress. Now that we have it Twitter hashtags they don’t need to be regulated by the No Fun League
Since the NFL decided life could not go on without having “official” hashtags and team emojis what was wrong with using the slogans and phrases the fans were already using? Who came up with this #hashtagmadness? Were they prosecuted? If not, why not? I know some of you are thinking come on they can’t be that BAD. Fine judge this failure for yourself. On a scale from 1 a missed tackle in a preseason game to 10. I should’ve ran the ball in the Super Bowl this is at least a 5. Not quite Josh Brown only received a one game suspension for assaulting his wife numerous times failure but definitely more of a failure than a preseason exhibition.
