Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has trolled the Minnesota Vikings in an under-the-radar fashion before.
Remember the Grape Crush incident? Have you seen Rodgers drink Grape Crush at a presser since then?
No, you haven’t.
He did it again this week during his conference call with Minnesota reporters. In case you’re unaware of this arcane ritual, teams make their head coach and star player available to the guys who cover the opposing team via a conference call each Wednesday.
On this week’s call, Rodgers started it off with questions about Ragnar, the former human mascot (and all-around piece of crap) of the Vikings.
“Is the Viking on the motorcycle coming back?” Rodgers asked.
After Rodgers was informed that Ragnar is not coming back, he followed with this.
“He wanted too much money, huh?” Rodgers recalled.
Clearly, Rodgers knows all about the embarrassing Ragnar saga. This idiot dressed up like a Viking and rode a motorcycle out of the tunnel before each game for way too many seasons.
The Vikings dumped him prior to moving to TCF Bank Stadium, which is where they played while the new Hormel Chili Dome was being built. Things got contentious. Ragnar was hurt and went to the media. The Vikings, the shitheels that they are, then revealed that Ragnar wanted $20,000 a game to continue his schtick.
They basically decided not to renew the guy’s contract and then thought it best to publicly embarrass him.
We have no love for the human being who actually wants to be a Minnesota Vikings mascot, but the public shaming just goes to show what a bunch of fucking scumbags run that organization.
And Rodgers dredging that embarrassment up?
