After defeating the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers decided he was going to drink some Grape Crush during his press conference.
Well, of course the Internet exploded.
BECA– — USE THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS ARE PURPLE! AND THAT SODA IS PURPLE! AND IT”S CALLED CRUSH!
Yes indeed. Was Rodgers making a subtle joke there because the Packers had just beaten the Vikings?
He probably was. Because it’s fucking illegal to drink Grape Crush at a post-game press conference if you play in the NFL. Certainly Rodgers knew that, which means he knows he’s going to get fined.
The NFL has a contract with Pepsi. Pepsi does not make Grape Crush. Therefore, Grape Crush can not be seen at any sort of NFL event.
Or face the wrath of the Ginger Hammer!
So just like Bob Griffin getting fined for covering up a Nike logo or that cock Colin Kaepernick getting fined for wearing Beats by Dre, Rodgers is going to have to pay for drinking a bottle of Grape Crush.
The makers of Grape Crush do not line the NFL’s pockets! You will pay for daring to have a mind of your own, Rodgers!
After all, NFL law is supreme law. Higher than even the courts. Just ask Adrian Peterson.
That is just friggin awesome!!! Too funny!! Way to go Aaron!!!!
Of course the NFL will fine him. What a bunch of freaking tools. FALL INTO LINE–DRINK WHAT YOU’RE TOLD TO DRINK OR YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE!
Perusing a site that tracks fines in the NFL, and there are fines for late hits, fighting, taunting, & face masking for around $8,000. Seriously? Wrong head phones is a $10k fine but a late hit is $8268? Not that I give a shit about Kaepernik’s wallet, but this is complete BS…
Agreed in full; it’s worse than that though: Donte Stalworth killed someone while driving drunk, Ray Lewis stabbed someone to death, Ray Rice dropped his GF with a right hook and they were all reinstated with little punishment (from the NFL).
Rodger Goodell is a soulless despot who is systematically destroying arguably the greatest sport ever devised by mankind.
Are players allowed to drink Coors light at the podium? It’s the official beer of the nfl after all. Are they allowed to refer to the old Broncos defense as Orange Crush? If a tree falls in the woods does it have to be licensed by the NFL?
Are you guys stupid ? The NFL has a CONTRACT with Pepsi, so why would they let NFL players, IN THE NFL, show any other products ? Think about it. What if you had a Nike contract, but decides to wear Adidas’s product. Makes no sense.
This was NOT to stick it to the Vikings. He has a Grape Crush and a PB&J after every game. It’s part of his ritual.
But are his peanut butter and jelly official NFL products? What about the bread, the butter? Clamp down on this shit, stat, lest anarchy prevail.
Next thing you know, some player’s baby momma gonna be flashing that bling from Jared’s and Kay Jeweler’s goan be all kind a pissed off, flooding NFL inboxes with cease and desist orders.
only the NFL has such a dad gum rule. I suppose if they had Kohler as a sponser all the players would have to use only Kohler to shit in. my my, this is called dictator ship. AR just is going to have to pay the piper, that may put him in the soup line.
GO PACK GO
Hey Roger, less worry about the soda brands, more about totally fucking the sport up, OK?
And they say no one likes Socialism— hello NFL!
So I guess the next big business will be getting your tattoo shop an NFL sponsorship. Hell look at all the fines you fruits at the NFL headquarters can collect from those non sponsored tats.
No worries, Rodgers’ Crush ad contract is worth 20 times whatever the NFL’s fine will be.
He may want to watch out for Goodell and his merry band of disciplinarians (Nancy Kerrigan, Greg Williams, Biff Tannen, Gargamel, etc.) unless he wants a lead pipe to the knee that is.
Wasn’t Nancy a skater?
What’s she got to do with the nhl, er, nfl?
Hot chick tho.
I fucked up-meant Tanya Harding the knee buster contractor.
Grape soda and pbj sandwiches? Yuck-O!
I think I hate the NFL more and more every week. If it wasn’t for the Packers I could give a fuck less about this giant shithole filled with arrogant greedy scumbags. Yet I continue to watch because they have everyone addicted like some dope fiend junkies looking for their next fix.
E. Wolf. I couldn’t agree more. The NFL is about one thing: GREED. I love the Packers. I detest the NFL. Hypocrisy in action.
Is that a normal 20 oz bottle? His gigantic quarterback hands make that look child-sized.
A 20 oz.er IS child sized according to former mayor of NYC (Bloomterd).
But Crush is a Pepsi product. They have bottled and distributed it in about 90% of America for at least 5-6yrs now but, idk if they fully own the rights to it
