you were told wrong.
Texting durring games?
Whats the big deal with that?
With that important piece of business done, commissioner Roger Goodell plans on turning his attention toward the Browns.
Specifically, he will “focus on” the illegal texting from Cleveland general manager Ray Farmer to coaches on the sideline during several 2014 games.
Electronic communication is banned from 90 minutes prior to kickoff until the end of the game.
part f the reason kyle shannahan left the browns was supposedly because he felt uncomfortable with the GM and other members of the personnel dept. sending texts to the field. one of the big issues is that they were sending the texts from the press box. from what i understand, the texts were more opinions and suggestions rather than orders or something as nefarious as communicating with the other teams. they seems to have been pretty harmless and more just annoying to the coaching staff having the GM and guys from personnel meddling.
but rules are rules. you can't use those devices on the sidelines. communication is limited to the headsets and that one phone line to the booth.
