    Surprised that doesn't happen more often. Have seen plenty of credentials posted on Facebook, albeit to slightly less important events.

    Why do I get the feeling this guy posted that photo with general public viewing? Restrict, restrict, restrict all privacy. The only people with access to my page are my friends. And even then, they're put in lists with some having very limited access.

    There were signs all over credential pickup at last year's Super Bowl explaining that exact prohibition -- and each individual was required to pick up his or her own credential. The story makes it clear this guy is a fan, not a journalist, who obviously flouted the very clear rules to show off.

    Local CBS affiliate Sports Director tweeted out "Just got our credentials for the game" and posted a pic of his entire crew's credentials. He's a good dude, I tweeted to him to delete it ASAP. Wondering if he did it before the NFL saw.

    Interesting....so the NFL is better at chasing down credential holders than finding out who deflated Tom Brady's balls?
