Soccer goes social

The AFL has been debating the merits of putting player names on the back of their jerseys for ages.

While they been busy going around in circles the A-League has trumped them by putting player Twitter names on their jumpers.

Genius. Don't you think?

Social media and so called 'second screen' devices are a massive part of the football experience these days.

Soccer in Australia has capitalised on this.

The AFL has not.

Thats pretty clever, but how long before a player tweets/posts something that could land the club in hot water!
Sports starts and personal lives are a minefield!
