If you’ve ever wondered why you see athletes and coaches using phones from the 1990s to call up to the booth in sports like football and baseball, it’s to easily regulate any funny business of sorts going on that using cellphones would introduce.

Though the use of 13 tablets are now allowed by an NFL’s sideline during games, players and coaches are not allowed to use cell phones, which is awkward considering one Dallas coach was caught using a cell phone during the team’s 13-10 win over the Saints on Thursday night.
