Because of course he does!
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was on the Dan Lebatard Show on Thursday and he was asked about how the media covers him. Does he trust them?
We don’t, because they’re donkeys, but that’s besides the point.
Neither does Aaron Rodgers.
“I think you have to be wary,” Rodgers said. “I think you have to approach every interview with a clear mind, and think about what you want to say and what message you want to get out.”
“I think it’s also important, if you’re worried about getting taken out of context, that you just record your interviews, something I’ve been doing for a while now. I think it’s important to have that second recording so if someone’s trying to take something you said out of context, you can go back and say ‘wait, wait, hold on.'”
So take note Demovsky. You’re on notice!
This isn’t really all that surprising. We have long noted Rodgers’ long memory — from guys who dissed him during the draft, said he couldn’t play, etc. — he’s remembered. He’s also thrown those breakdowns in their face after he became an MVP.
AR remembers and, as he’s getting older and maybe can’t remember as well, he’s recording.
It is a good practice. Wise move by Rodgers on this one.
The person who records the truth protects the truth. Those against this are those who want to be able to distort the truth.
