We first saw Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers having some words for Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr after Barr broke his collarbone. Then Rodgers revealed that he had words for Barr because Barr flipped him off and grabbed his crotch.
Now, Barr claims Rodgers has everyone fooled.
Well, not exactly. Here’s Barr grabbing his nuts.

That’s obviously not the kind of nut grab where you need to move something around. It’s a suck-this nut grab.
But remember I mentioned that Barr said Rodgers had everyone fooled. Here’s that statement.

First, let me explain something to you Anthony Barr. No one likes you. You’re cheap fuck. You’ve been a cheap fuck since you played at UCLA, which obviously disregarded their academic standards to let you in.
Everyone likes Aaron Rodgers.
Now, let’s look at the timeline of how this most likely went down. Rodgers said Barr made two gestures after the tackle. He didn’t say when Barr made those gestures. Barr indeed appears to be in the huddle when he does the nut grab.
No one really says anything about flipping the bird.
My guess is things transpired like this.
Should we call this Nutgate?
Perhaps there was a second bird-flipper on the grassy knoll?
We may never know.
What I can tell you with certainty is this. The Minnesota Vikings are, always have been and always will be the scum of the goddam earth.
Ah, Mordecai/Monty/PF4L…[ long deep chuckle]
First, know that when it comes to truth and who is more to be believed you need to take into account the past. Who is a liar? Who is more likely to lie? Sooooo, between Barr and Rodgers, which one is the one who set up a beard with a starlet in order to further her career and protect and further his own endorsements? Oh, that’s right, that was Rodgers were it not? That is not just a lie. That is a grand deception on nearly everyone. Premeditated and for profit. Really, concerning the companies that pay Rodgers for endorsements, legally it is fraud, a felony.
Now, examine the two statements. Barr does not deny what you portray he does. You use the word “claims” as if he lied. He did not. He never says he did not grab his crotch or give the finger. In fact, he literally says, “…you’re gonna get a response from me”. So, really, Rodgers and Barr agree he did that.
So you have Rodgers yelling profanity in front of kids and Barr crotch-grabbing in front of kids. Both were in the wrong. Is it equal? On the face of it. However, it is important to know which came first, the chicken or the guy who hit the chicken hard but legal. If Rodgers started it, he is the worse player in this drama. If Barr did, he would be the worse. Initiating and responding are two very different things. (And don’t waste anyone’s time claiming the hard legal excellent hit by Barr initiated anything. It’s football, not badminton.)
Rodgers is clearly trying to make it sound as if Barr began the interchange. But you can tell it isn’t true even before Barr denies it. Rodgers does not say anything like that he started calling names BECAUSE Barr did those things. He would like to and, if it had happened that way I’m sure he would have. But, guess what, cameras are all over. Rodgers is a smug prick, no doubt, I’ll give you that, but he is not stupid. He does not want to be caught in a lie. How to do that? Tell the truth in such a way and with such a structure that it conveys one message — a lie — while, technically, not lying. Neat trick, huh? Well, he had plenty of time to think it through beforehand.
Rodgers says the cameras saw him but did not see what Barr did. He then says what he saw Barr did (although he may well be lying about the finger). At no point does he say he used profanity responding to Barr’s action. Nor does he clarify that Barr actually did his action AFTER Rodgers cursed repeatedly at him and ACTUALLY did it in RESPONSE to Rodgers’ poor sportsmanship.
As you noted above the crotch grab occurred with Barr in the defensive huddle which was AFTER Rodgers was cursing at him. Note also that this is exactly how the truthful Barr stated it in his own post.
You theorize that Barr gave the finger before Rodgers cursed repeatedly at Barr. But you have no proof, Barr denies it, and actually Rodgers does not really claim that.
Here is the most accurate time line (at this time):
1. Barr’s hit was great and totally legal and seen every day in nearly every game usually several times per game.
2. Rodgers, no doubt in great pain, then behaved in an unsportsmanlike manner. Understandable but he should still apologize.
3. Barr, taunted and verbally abused, responded with equally inappropriate gesture(s). Not ideal and avoidable. It was “self-defense” taunting in response to Rodgers’ poor and childish behavior but Barr should be above that and should not lower himself to Rodgers’ level.
4. Nearly two weeks go by and Rodgers has not apologized for his behavior. Rodgers does not want to apologize for his behavior. He wants to be the victim. That will placate his endorsements. Instead of being responsible or, failing that, just keeping his mouth shut, he then tries to publicly frame and defame Barr. This suits his mission and his grudge-holding persona as well. This latest action by Rodgers is about 500m times worse than his inappropriate attacking profanity on the field. Premeditated to cause a false negative impression about another person. All because the person played football legally the way it is meant to be played and then also because the person, when attacked, responded in kind.
I wish Rodgers had not been hurt and I wish him a full and complete recovery. But I do that in spite of the fact he is a smug prick who throws people under the bus and uses the power of his popularity to falsely defame them.
“Long Deep Chuckle” is the most idiotic comment anyone has ever made on this site. It is also the only words of your post that I read. Nobody reads your shit Killer. Just so you know.
To be commended Ferris…
You made it further than I did…
I stopped at “Ah,”….
Normally legit versions of these types of docs are double spaced and show line number….
Wish this ASSFACE “Killer” would leap off a 100′ cliff, with 120′ cord attached
The purpose of this reply is to let you know that I didn’t read your comment.
Viking coaches = Viking players = Vikings fans = scumbags
Even when you write 800 words to try to prove otherwise.
Who even bothers to read that FKG Lavender Queen excuse dribble?????
Ok, i’m confused, who wrote this article?
Mordecai, Monty, or PF4L?
Can we have some clarity please?
Longer deeper chuckle,
Did that video come from a guy named Zapruder?
