As the NFL continues to gets its arms around the new technology that more and more players are embracing, the Packers plan to lay down the law — and raid the wallets — of anyone on the team who uses it during an official function.
According to the Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, any Packer who uses Twitter while on the clock will be fined the maximum amount of $1,701.
So running back Ryan Grant made it clear on his own Twitter page that he won’t be posting updates while at work. “Expect tweets in the morning before we go to work, possibly around
lunch time and at night once we done,” Grant said. “I don’t want that heavy fine.”
The fact that the Twitter page includes reference to the time that each update is posted, it’ll be easy for teams to prove that a tweet was added at a time when Twitter was forbidden.
Still, we figure that plenty of guys will bend the rules, and then some.
