That Guy Who Bet Aaron Rodgers About Ryan Braun Wants His Money

Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun

His name is Todd Sutton. He’s the guy who questioned whether Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers really believed his buddy Ryan Braun was clean on Twitter.

Rodgers replied with “I’d put my salary next year on it.”

And now we all know Ryan Braun wasn’t clean. And Aaron Rodgers isn’t talking. Todd Sutton is, though.

“I’d just take a game check,” Sutton told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday, laughing.

“I’m not really expecting to hear from him. It’d be cool, but I doubt it’s going to happen,” Sutton said.

Yeah, we doubt it too. A game check would cost Rodgers $281,250. It’s pretty amazing that this guy makes that much in one week. More than I make in an entire fucking year. Seems fair.

Rodgers also seems to have a history of welching on bets when he loses. There was that incident with the dude from Boyz II Men where Rodgers was supposed to wear a 49ers shirt if the Packers lost to San Francisco. We never saw Rodgers in a 49ers shirt.

Anyway, Sutton said he found Rodgers’ response to his question about Braun, who Rodgers is a partner with in two Milwaukee restaurants, to be arrogant. We would tend to agree.

“He was probably trying to embarrass me on Twitter, but it has kind of reversed now,” Sutton said.

Who’s laughing now, right? Bud Selig and Todd Sutton.

    a wager usually has two parts to it – so what did Sutton put up for his share of the bet? Nothing you say? then I guess there really wasn’t a legit bet/wager, was there……so I guess there really isn’t a reason for anyone to be paying out or collecting. so this dude gets his name in a usa today article. pfffft. big deal. TRAINING CAMP STARTS FRIDAY – WOO HOO!!!!!

    There was no bet. Rodgers said he would put money on it, not that he will.

    Todd Sutton – the clock is running on your 15 minutes of fame, dude.

    This is a lot to do about nothing. There was clearly no meeting of the minds. What is really disappointing is the writer’s glib and superficial criticisms of Aaron Rodgers. Looks like he doesn’t know how to write for public consumption without resorting to profanity. Is that the best way you can express yourself?
