Packer fans are having a great time interacting with Nick Barnett, Jermichael Finley and Ryan Grant via Twitter now that it's July. All across the NFL, players are Tweeting away, having fun exchanges with fans and everyone is in love.
The first NFL season with full-on Twitter interconnection is approaching. I have horrible visions of armies of fans, armed with their DVR remotes, Tweeting to their favorite players along the lines of "What happened on that 3rd and 3?" or "You really blew that blocking assignment in the 4th quarter". Of course, these are tame compared to some of the posts you see on football forums everywhere. The potential for some really offensive messages being sent directly to individual players is high.
Sure, these guys hear it all at the stadium. But there's something about seeing that stuff written down that can really upset. (Trust me - you should see some of my email.)
I just really hope fans on Twitter keep things in check during the season...
