Do you know what happens after you lose to the Detroit Lions at home? I’ll tell you.
You don’t feel like doing shit.
So I’m telling you straight up. This is a half-hearted effort.
Aaron Rodgers was angry after the game.
Not angry about his garbage play, but angry about what some ignorant fuck in the stands had to say.
Here’s the part where we tell you that maybe everyone should be concerned with themselves and not worry about the fucks who are clearly the fucks. But QB1 had to be real adamant about this.
“I must admit, I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was who made a comment that I thought was really inappropriate during the moment of silence,” Rodgers said. “It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position that we’re in today as a world.”
Here’s the thing.
We don’t abide by ignorance. You know that.
This is me talking personally, but I like to think we go out of our way to beat down any sort of ignorance or stupidity. And that may not be popular, but we hold you to a higher standard. The whole idea behind this stupid goddam site was that we weren’t going to talk down to anyone, that the people who read us were either in the know or they’d move on to Cheesehead TV.
I have no idea what was said during that moment of silence, but it doesn’t matter.
An ignorant fuck is probably always going to be an ignorant fuck.
That’s life. The world.
And it’s certainly Aaron Rodgers’ right to say what he feels. To call out stupidity.
Certainly seemed like it was a convenient thing to point out in the wake of losing to the Detroit Fucking Lions at home, though.
Hey, nothing to see here. Please move on.
Yeah, but he was specifically asked and it was the very last question of the post-game presser. The reporter worded it something like “as a high profile athlete people might like to know your thoughts on Paris”. I don’t think he was looking to point it out.
I watched it too. His presser was as composed as he was during the game….meaning…not so much. They asked him if anything was wrong with him physically & why he missed some throws and he’s like “I dont understand the question” and “I’ll have to look at the film.” Yada yada yada. WAAAAAAAY too much insecure ego for my tastes. Look, just say what we already know: “I was terrible. I missed guys & made poor decisions. Maybe I’m pressing too hard.” Instead, he is flippant and highlights one or two morons out of 80K people in attendance. Why? Retaliation. He didnt like getting booed. An epic fail both during & after the game. Very disappointing.
I like the way total packers handles issues like this, and I agree. I’m disgusted by a lot of sports fans reactions to his statement. Pretty embarrassing to be associated with whoever yelled that stupid shit.
I can’t believe no one else sees this for what it is. Mr Sensitive, chip-on-his-shoulder, I-think-I’m-taller-than-I-actually-am Rodgers was butt-hurt about getting booed at home for playing like shit, and this was his way of throwing shade at Green Bay fans. You might balk, but he’s not above it. He’s that petty.
Maybe he should stop worrying about an ignorant fan and start worrying about our team losing to the worst team in the NFL AT HOME. Is his heart still in it? I dunno, he says its “just a game” when he should be saying “its my job” or “its my life”.
I might bash Rodgers a lot on here, BUT there are shit bigger than football, and that happened during the silent moment, so he can point out whatever the hell he wants about that.
They yelled “Muslims suck!”
First of all, if you use the moment of the silence to yell out shit, then you might be an asshole.
That’s clearly understood by all non-assholes. Glad we got that out of the way.
Secondly, maybe we should be more concerned with the 160 people who were massacred and the 200 injured than the people who might get offended by mean words. I don’t know. Just a thought.
This guy gets it.
You thought that same shit if a black guy said fuck whites after all the school shootings you assholes do. No you’re a bunch of hypocritical racist pigs.
Agree with Shawn. My guess is Rodgers hasn’t studied the Koran too much. But hey, he is a big star, so we should listen to him.
The guy has a right to his opinion and was specifically asked about the incident, but he should also know when to bite on a question like that that’s obviously just meant to stir up controversy and get an easy headline. That said, I think he’s right.
Subtlety, not something understood nor possessed by this site or writers.
People don’t always say what they mean.
People don’t always mean what they say.
Why would Rodgers start picking on Pack fans and do so with a real glare in his eyes?
OK, i’ll bite. The shit snuck up on him this year so fast and furious, that he didn’t have time to come up with a clever quip like R-E-L-A-X that got the fans off his back, until it was exposed as a [flawed] plan to coast, er, skate, into another SB victory, but flopped in a giant choke-fest in Skedattle instead.
This year, he has to face the entire Packer Team and Packer Nation in a shit-storm of incredulous doubt. After this most recent of 3 losses in a row, the powers that be in GB are totally at a loss to figure where the next wheel is coming off this rickety wagon. So don’t expect AR and co. to come up with “RELAX” as the plan again this year, LOL.
i’ve got it! — a better plan would to dig out old V.L. training films and classroom lectures. [FB Leadership 101, etc.] and another, related, move to consider is to grab Vince’s grandson off the streets of Detroit and try to glean what he might have learned at grandpa’s knee? the guy should still be available, after all he only got fired by “Madam Dragon” just a couple weeks ago?
Oh, i forgot. some of the ignorant arrogant coaches we have now don’t even want to admit that Lombardi ever existed, they certainly don’t seem to want to be reminded of their tiny feet filling “the shoes of the fisherman” to use a [Christian] biblical analogy.
Wow dude. I think you take this playing sports thing a wee bit too seriously. The Green Bay Packers live on, at 6-3. Jump back on the bandwagon whenever you get to feeling better, or when they get in the playoffs, whichever comes first.
“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only Thing” – Vince Lombardi.
does that help you understand why, in Titletown they take their “sports playing” legacy, actually it’s a WINNING legacy, so seriously “Dude”?
Calling everyone names, doubting their ability and commitment, and saying they choked would not settle well with anyone familiar with “The Legacy”. If you want to talk about winning vs losing, they are 6-3.
Green Bay is not known for fair-weather fans, no matter the era. I’m sure you didn’t wear the T-shirts or proclaim you had anything to do with the GBP’s in the 70’s and 80’s, so like I said, the bandwagon awaits my fair weather friend.
Vince later admitted he wished he had never said that. He said, “Of course, there is more to life than winning.”
Good quote though. As the saying goes, uncompromising men are easy to admire.
Football is just a fucking game. There are more important issues in the world than his performance on the field and he was right to call out that moron in the crowd.
