Off The Post has found itself the subject of an unlikely Twitter tirade from Robbie Savage this afternoon. The Derby County midfielder took exception to our post suggesting that frustrated Rams fans were well within their rights to boo their side during the 0-0 draw with Millwall.
Savage tweeted us to say: “rubbish blog !! Booing your own team is counter productive!! How naive are you !! @offthepost is a pile of!Put that in your blog.”
The ex-Premier League footballer also said: “what has the price of a ticket got to do if people boo or not !! Support your own team through thick and thin !”
Showing more restraint that those featured in the video below, OTP offered Savage the opportunity to set out his case on the counter-productivity of booing in our Guest Post January feature, telling him he could call us “a pile of” whatever he liked without fear of censorship.
But Sav was having none of it, tweeting “with you no” and – seemingly forgetting his earlier tweet – “I have manners.”
God bless that entertaining yet crazed Twitter fiend.
