Miami Dolphins Embrace Modern Technology, Replace Playbooks With iPads

The Miami Dolphins made a big move this offseason, and I'm not talking about any on-field signings. The team has embraced 21st century technology and given the players iPads instead of oversized playbooks to carry around, a nice convenience in this modern era. But with the good comes the bad, no? Via Mike Berardino of the Sun Sentinel:

The bad news?

Players get slapped with a $10,000 fine if they wander into (ahem) any unauthorized Web sites.

Gorging themselves on YouTube during team meetings won't be tolerated.

Nor will Chad Ochocinco be able to satisfy his 3.5 million Twitter followers with minute-to-minute updates on his bodily functions, at least not on his team-issued, GPS-enabled device.

If the biggest problem the Dolphins face this season is players wasting time on Angry Birds: The Goodell Edition, then new head coach Joe Philbin has done a miraculous job.
