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.
