Aaron Rodgers Denies Calling Brett Favre Grandpa

This is all somewhat humorous to us. A couple weeks ago, an excerpt from the book Gunslinger, which is about Brett Favre, was released that portrayed Aaron Rodgers as arrogant and Favre as a dick. As the story goes, Favre made fun of Rodgers all the time and had the locker room saying he was gay behind his back. Rodgers, meanwhile, wasn’t initially liked by teammates because of his air of superiority.

There was also the alleged grandpa incident. The book says that Rodgers, unsure what to say to Favre, called him “grandpa” the first time they met.

“Good morning, grandpa,” was the exact line, according to the book.

And as you can imagine, Favre was not amused.

Rodgers says that never happened and clearly doesn’t like how he was portrayed in the tome.

Sensational is an interesting word. It’s kind of like when a lawyer uses the word frivolous to describe someone else’s lawsuit. You know the meaning of the word, but in the context of the statement and who it’s coming from, it really isn’t saying anything. It’s expected.

Other than the grandpa line, Rodgers isn’t denying anything else.

It’s also interesting that he bothered to read any of this, though not unexpected. Rodgers has always paid very close attention to what is being said about him (and who is saying it). Clearly, that hasn’t changed.

    Hell with the book, EVERYTHING is about Lord Favre. Probably a section in there about how he started the Packers from nothing. Hope they retired enough of his shit now so he will simply go away for good.

      I agree! Favre is like a Cockroach, so sick of his act. Once his Hillbilly Ass put on that Penis Logo, Lavender shit rag Uni. ALL BRIDGES were not only burned, they were NUKED. Packer Nation does not forget Fredo.

    Rodgers was wrong. That daughter that Favre produced at 20 years old and subsequently ignored when he knocked up his girlfriend out of wedlock a wouldn’t get knocked up by her boyfriend out of wedlock until a few more years.

      Ugh. What I meant to say was Favre was not yet a grandpa, because his illegitimate daughter hadn’t had her illegitimate son yet.

    First, who said Rodgers read anything? He couldn’t have been told about it?

    I don’t think Rodgers should have even commented on it. True or not. It serves him no upside.

    With that said, if he did say it, it was disrespectful, but funny nonetheless. I could imagine him saying it.

    But then, you always look at an accuser through a glass house. I don’t think Favre has any room to talk about someone being disrespectful to others. Like his team, his team’s fan’s and even his wife and family. Favre is the poster child for being disrespectful to others.

    So if Rodgers did say that to him, along with most other things involving Favre, i give no fuck.
