If you’re like us, your twitter account is chocked full of athletes so you can stay up on their every move. Or in other words, so you can stalk them. It’s all good, we all have some stalking tendencies in us.
Well Packers coach, Mike McCarthy is totally against you stalking his players during this year’s training camp. In fact, it will cost his players dinero if they feed in to your stalking addiction. Translation? The Packers aint tweeting during training camp. As if they were anyhow.
You see, when it comes to social networking on the Internet, the Packers might as well be Baby Boomers. They’re not exactly on the cutting edge of technology. Like many of us, they don’t understand the process and don’t care to learn about it.
“I’m non-Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, all of that,” linebacker Brandon Chillar said. “I don’t like any of that stuff.”
Neither does Packers coach Mike McCarthy, which is the biggest reason you won’t be able to get any of his players’ thoughts directly from them, at least not after they’ve punched the time clock at Lambeau Field. In his pre-training camp speech Friday, McCarthy told the players they will be fined $1,701 for using cell phones and other mobile devices to post on Twitter, send text-messages or engage in any similar behavior during team activities.
