Reflects on the increasing scope for irresponsible comments made on social media sites to attract civil or criminal penalties, and how such remarks by professional footballers have generated significant amounts of revenue for the Football Association (FA). Reviews the range of social media "faux pas" committed by footballers, the large fines imposed by the FA Regulatory Commission and why these constitute a useful "cash cow".
