    and all of a sudden he's not a Packer anymore. Do you continue following him?

    I'm always conflicted on this. So now it's Greg Jennings. I haven't dropped him yet. I was just about to now, but I decided to ask the question here first.

    I don't know how to follow a tweeter. I rely on all of you to let me know things!

    If I really liked them, they stay until they sign elsewhere, then I refollow once they leave that team. I'm still following Woodson, Driver, and Collins.

    I quit following him as soon as I heard he signed with MN. The only guys that aren't Packers in the NFL I follow are former Badgers or just a player I like.

    I dropped Jennings the moment he signed with Miniscrotum. I refuse to follow any player from a division rival. Also, there are very few non-Packers player I follow, mostly because I don't care enough about players outside my favorite team to be interested in what they have to say on a regular basis.

    Part of me wants to keep following him just so I know when he does something that pisses me off....

    See, well I unfollowed Gurley, but that was because he didn't play with the Packers for the last 7 years and have so many memorable moments AND he didn't have 2 TDs for us in the Super Bowl. Plus I have so many things signed by him and I'm an "official fan" :cry::cry: Greg Jennings.jpg

    That's an odd motivation.

    I hear that. No problems... I loved Greg from the moment we drafted him.
    But he's not retired... he's now the enemy. THE enemy. I hate the Vikings.
    So HE GONE.

    I am hoping for an season ending injury every year before the season starts so he never plays on the field :)

    I'm still following Nick Barnett. I was following Kaberr Gbaja Biamilla but all he does is post gospel verses.

    That's a good thing.
    I didn't know he was on twitter.... gotta search & follow him now.
    Nick Collins, Tramon, Cobb, they often post verses too.
    Jerron McMillian, and DuJuan Harris post nothing but junk. Worthless stuff.

    I miss KGB, and Collins :eek:(

    If they sign elsewhere they're dropped. If they retire they stay. My only exceptions are Brett Favre and Tom Crabtree.

    I haven't unfollowed him... yet, really only because I haven't had much time to get on da twitta over the last few weeks. I'm sure the moment I see a reference to the purple nurples I'll resign from his fandom :(

    Wondering.........did anyone happen to notice the number of followers he had before he went to the vikes ? Just wanting to see how many people stopped following due to changing to the enemy team.
