However, there was on 49er that felt some type of way about it all, and he appeared to be the least bit motivated by the speech. Maybe he was just ready to get out of Green Bay and head back to the West Coast.
But, whatever the case, offensive lineman Anthony Davis decided to seize the moment as an opportunity to take shots at Green Bay.
According to The Big Lead, Davis posted a series of tweets during the WCW World Heavyweight Champion's motivational speech. Some tweets were good, others may have raised eyebrows. But, nevertheless, his perspective was quite clear. He definitely wanted out of Green Bay. However, the most infamous tweet been removed, of course.
Davis' tweeted a derogatory message, referring to the town of Green Bay as a sh--hole. While he thought it was funny, a number of Green Bay fans and residents found it his remarks quite offensive. But, he didn't back down from his opinion, which only fueled those offended even more.
Emotionally high jacked over my opinion. lol Poise yourself. Mental Toughness/Grasp is at an all-time low here in Appleton. lol
