Any team posting (real-life) highlights face a $25,000 from the league, which has denied the move is in response to falling television ratings. Under the new rules, teams are also banned from posting video from their own stadiums during games. NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah said the league’s actions had given rise to the “peak ridiculous” situation of teams posting fake highlights.
