The SEC Would Prefer That You Not Mention SEC Games To Anyone

sending requestAmerica’s fastest conference is developing a new “media policy” that severely restricts how much audio, video and “blogs,” reporters can dish out during live games. (Hint: Not much.) Oh, and fans in the seats are subject to the policy too.

We all know that you can’t disseminate anything without the express written consent of Major League Baseball, but the Southeastern Conference’s new fan policy seems to suggest that any attempt by people inside the stadium to let people outside the stadium know what’s going on would be against the rules. No Twittering. No Facebook photos. No YouTubes. Nothing. If your friend wants to know the score, he can read the paper the next day.

The SEC Would Probably Prefer That You Not Use This Photo Either!
