Anthony Davis won’t be retiring in Green Bay

As the 49ers prepare to face the Packers in Green Bay, thanks to a league rule that forces wild-card teams with superior records to visit division winners with lesser won-loss-tie marks, San Francisco offensive lineman Anthony Davis won’t be leaving his heart in Wisconsin.

“Nature Boy Ric Flair flew into this sh-t hole to show us some love,” Davis said Saturday night on Twitter, from the team’s hotel in Appleton, Wisconsin.

Davis, a native of Piscataway, New Jersey, stuck to his guns despite facing the wrath of those who took exception to his comment.

“Ok everybody that strongly disagrees w me can you defend your argument on this place not being a sh-thole?”

It’s not exactly bulletin board material for the Packers, but it will ensure that Davis receives something other than a hero’s welcome when he emerges from the tunnel and enters the playing field.

    Somebody seems a bit upset.

    Capes should make a note to throw some new things at this guy.

    When will these kids learn

  9. bert1913 says: Jan 5, 2014 9:26 AM

    The truth hurts

    You keep bringing up this rule for home field…

    Its the same in football as it is in hockey as it is in basketball as it is in baseball.

    WIN your divison or dont complain. Its that simple.

    Hotel is in Appleton, right? Can’t totally blame him. Getting Flair to come in rules!

  12. boomboombrown says: Jan 5, 2014 10:13 AM

    That’s why Rodgers likes it so much!

  13. noeffinway says: Jan 5, 2014 10:15 AM

    Visiting team stays in Appleton, no?

  14. salbright45 says: Jan 5, 2014 10:19 AM

    Anthony, you should feel right at home!

    Facts is facts, Jack.

  17. Packernet says: Jan 5, 2014 11:05 AM

    It is, but with 13 NFL Championships.

    Sad. Green Bay Area is actually beautiful. Head up to Door county (the Peninsula) it’s truly spectacular. Yes Green Bay proper is a little industrial but it’s a harbor town, built on the backs of some of the hardest working people in the nation. But you won’t see any of that. Because hate sees what it wants to see.

  19. gwhempel says: Jan 5, 2014 11:33 AM

    Nevermind, I googled him. Apparently he’s a really tall dude with a unibrow.

  20. jayniner says: Jan 5, 2014 12:18 PM

    He must have gotten stuck somewhere in Chicago’s “south side”

  21. trollhammer20 says: Jan 5, 2014 1:07 PM

    Being from Piscataway, I assume that Davis is an expert in s— holes?

  22. binkystevens says: Jan 5, 2014 1:27 PM

    Isn’t he from New Jersey? Nuff said

  23. zillabeast says: Jan 5, 2014 1:30 PM

    Quite possibly the greatest Tweet ever Tweeted!

  24. inthompsonwetrust says: Jan 5, 2014 1:31 PM

    How does a washed up former WWF wrestler motivate people? Do the players still think wrestling is real?

  25. raiderapologist says: Jan 5, 2014 1:32 PM

    S holes are revered where Anthony Davis plays his home games.

  26. dx22hbk says: Jan 5, 2014 1:39 PM

    Aw not too excited to play in real football weather.

  27. threedeep1998 says: Jan 5, 2014 2:01 PM

    LOL at the Packer fans “we have 13 titles”. Child, please… this is the SB era where you’re not facing Duluth Eskimos. SF has got you one up.

  28. rcpecook says: Jan 5, 2014 2:09 PM

    People continue to take shots while others are silenced….seriously, what gives?

    If I were to pile on about Green Bay being a hole, do I get posted?

  29. purpleguy says: Jan 5, 2014 2:19 PM

    Not many players have the gonads to say what they really think, even if it is the absolute truth.

  30. greg2geez says: Jan 5, 2014 2:21 PM

    Could be worse could be in Memphis.

  31. rcpecook says: Jan 5, 2014 2:24 PM

    Just as I figured…however as I pointed out before, the juveniles commenting on this story have never been to Wisconsin let alone being able to even find it on a map.

  32. gunny9631 says: Jan 5, 2014 2:53 PM

    Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Obviously his daddy found something in his momma. Or be wouldn’t be here today.

  33. hazelmn says: Jan 5, 2014 3:03 PM

    A guy from Jersey criticizing a Wisconsin town is a bit like Josh Freeman being critical of Jay Cutler’s mental game.

  34. keontayfilacio says: Jan 5, 2014 3:03 PM

    Better not let Lombardi hear you saying that

  35. 15to12 says: Jan 5, 2014 3:25 PM

    The media can’t stand Green Bay because there’s little in the way Of drugs and prostitutes in Green Bay.

  36. jackericsson says: Jan 5, 2014 3:30 PM

    Well, he developed in one-Jersey. He currently resides where they love it-SF. And today, he’s playing in it-GB. He knows a lot about the s hole, he sounds like a piece of s.

  37. beerbratscheese says: Jan 5, 2014 3:38 PM

    Guys like Reggie White and Charles Woodson liked the area just fine. This guy’s opinion = irrelevant.

  38. packfan0492 says: Jan 5, 2014 3:49 PM

    Must of gotten a good smell of Kaukauna when getting of the bus.

  39. vikescry1 says: Jan 5, 2014 3:50 PM

    funny coming from a guy who lives in frisco?? they might have nicer weather but what a sh-t hole town that is. pot calling the kettle black.

  40. jerrykill4pres says: Jan 5, 2014 4:01 PM

    But to be honest with all of you.. Davis isn’t saying anything we don’t already know.

  41. jerrykill4pres says: Jan 5, 2014 4:02 PM

    Does anyone on here know why Wisconsin women love Brats so much???

    It’s because it’s the biggest thing they can ever put in their mouth, unless there’s a visiting NFL team in town!
