Aaron Rodgers felt “disgust” hearing Andrew Luck get booed

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not happy about the way Andrew Luck was treated when the news of his retirement broke on Saturday night.

Rodgers said on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio that he felt for Luck having to go through both the physical pain of injuries on the field and the mental pain of hearing fans boo him for his decision.

“Well the surprise was obviously the first emotion. He’s a young player, he’s had a really, really good career,” Rodgers said. “But I think the second is a little disgust, maybe, at the way that it was handled. Him getting booed, the word leaking out the way that it did, I thought that was a little disgusting, because here’s a guy who’s making a quality of life decision. And he’s given a lot to the game, although he’s not a 15-year vet, but he’s put himself through a ton just to get back on the field.”

Rodgers noted that if Luck had wanted to, he could have gone on injured reserve this year and collected his salary, rather than walking away when he did.

“I think what he did was actually very unselfish,” Rodgers said. “Does he not start the season? He could be on IR, and then he’s cashing a paycheck from the Colts without playing. But instead he’s making the decision now so they can move forward with Jacoby [Brissett], and he’s making a decision that’s for his own quality of life and happiness, and I salute him for that. And I enjoyed competing against him. He’s a hell of a player, and I’m happy for whatever is next with Andrew.”

The majority of players seem to feel the way Rodgers does, that Luck is entitled to end his career on his own terms, no matter what anyone else thinks.

  1. This whole booing issue is so overblown. The fans were expressing their displeasure that a player that they love is leaving the team. It’s much better than the fans giving a standing ovation and shouting “it’s about time you lousy bum”.

  2. Are we sure he was actually disgusted? His face kinda just looks like that most of the time….

  3. The booing and hard feelings are probably from die hards who cant believe their Colts, two weeks before the regular season starts, will be without a very fine qb.
    The intelligent football fans will realize that Luck made the right call. He has been hampered by injuries consistently, and its taken a physical and emotional toll.
    Luck just decided it was time to start enjoying life without constant pain and injury rehab. Rodgers is right, Luck made a quality of life decision, and to get booed for that is off base.

  4. Well, we certainly knew Rodgers was going to speak. I mean, he always does, and truly believes we all want to hear what he has to say.

  5. What’s fueling this silliness is the never ending speculation and “who knew what and when” BS. Its his life, his decision. Let the man be. I may have booed and been pissed at first, but I bet many of those fans dont begrudge him. well, except those fans who comment on this sludge fest.

  6. uh, isn’t Luck still cashing a check without playing since the Colts aren’t going after his money?

  7. Can’t disagree with Aaron’s take on this. Too bad Doug Gottlieb didn’t put the same amount of thought into his take on the situation.

  8. I get the fan reaction looks bad but in their defense… sitting in the stands seeing that on twitter without any context to it…I don’t fault them for having an emotional angry/sad response. I do blame Adam Shefter who could have waited until after the game at least and let the press conference happen as it was intended to. But he could care less about doing the right thing…

  9. As a Colts fan, I am embarrassed by some of the Colts fan base. I don’t believe I know any of the boo birds personally, and I highly doubt it was a huge number (at least I hope not) … My apologies to Andrew for these so called fans that boo’ed him, and those looking for a refund. Totally uncalled for.

  10. To be fair, he is, in a way, still cashing a check because he is not paying back the pro-rated portion of his signing bonus.

    I have no opinion really, but a big part of me feels that if Luck hadn’t made 102 million previously (contracts, not including endorsements) in 7 years, he may have been more likely to have returned.

  11. I haven’t known Rogers to care about anyone other than himself ,so this is odd !

  12. what do you want them to do? cheer because they are now looking at jocoby brissett to lead them into the playoffs? Their best player just quit and they know their season is in the trash heap right now.

  13. He’s already cashed a lot of checks without playing, Rodgers. Leave it to you to always think about how to maximize the payday though. You’re good at that.

  14. Even if he wants to come back down the road I’m pretty sure he’s going to remember this.
    Now he’ll probably take over for Tom Brady!

  15. The most unselfish thing you can do is remove yourself from involvement if you feel like you’re not all the way invested. Nobody wants to play with teammates who are struggling and checked out. How does that help the team? This is a fraternity and a brotherhood. Players understand that this only a career and not their lives. Take care of you first. These entertainers don’t owe anybody anything.

  16. Fans have no idea how hard many if not all players work. Fans also don’t
    understand the stress a player has when injured. A players career is so fast,
    yes they make money, but not for a long period.
    Next time you want to criticize a player, try to understand he
    didn’t want the other player role up on him, tearing a ligament ,
    Try to understand when friendly fire caused a player to be out for the year
    thereby losing money for that season and most likely the next year or two,
    as the club will hold it against him.
    These people work so hard ,some have incredible luck, and some have
    little or no luck.

  17. at least he doesn t have to get booed by his home fans week 1, i can see that happening sooner than later. 5-11 for packers this year.

  18. This may be the only time I ever whole-heartedly agree with something Rodgers has said.

    Colts fans booing Luck are a disgrace. How entitled do you have to think your “expectations” of your favourite past time is more important than the lives of those who keep you entertained. Let the man live his life

  19. How is this even a question? Maybe they should have term limits in football so all the retirees don’t wind up like Jerry Quarry….

  20. I’m with the reader who wrote in to Peter King – why couldn’t Schefter have waited until Luck was in the locker room to publish his “breaking news”?

    He still would have gotten the scoop, and it would have spared Luck that awkward last experience on the field.

  21. You better believe that if Rodgers retired during this last preseason game, Lambeau would boo him relentlessly. And you can’t really blame fans for doing that in the moment. They literally just found out their season was over before it started.

  22. They weren’t booing Luck they were booing his decision.
    And lets face it they were caught completely off guard.

    Would it have been better if they had cheered?

  23. Obviously!!! Sometimes people can be stupid, x10 when they are drunk, so hopefully they felt differently the next day. It does put their favorite team in a hole though.

  24. Ummmmm isn’t he keeping unearned signing bonus money and unearned roster bonus money? Soooo he is still cashing a pretty sweet paycheck for not playing right?

    I will say this though, the people who let this leak out beforehand need to be held accountable for that cuz they really made him (Luck) a total deer in the headlights in that stadium which was completely unnecessary and unprofessional…..

  25. Yup, me too, Rodgers. That was repulsive. I understand they’re frustration, they have every right to be disappointed but booing a guy who doesn’t want to get wrecked anymore? I get that, how can you not get that? You can be empathetic & disappointed but angry at the player? That’s bogus. Why don’t you boo irsay and whoever the GM was who never built a competent line around him because I’d they had, I got big money that says this decision isn’t made had he not taken such a beating

  26. How do they know they were booing Luck and not the fact the team lost the freaking game? Where are all these assumptions that only Luck was being booed coming from? The fans left in the stadium at the end of the game were 90% bears fans, a team only 170 miles away, so how do we know it wasn’t Bears fans booing? They made up the majority of the crowd for the majority of the game and especially at the end. Get a clue

  27. Majority of those fans booing, still at a preseason game in the fourth qtr. Will never be able to afford tickets to a regular season game. Just sayin’

  28. It’s pretty amazing that there are posters defending and making excuses for the fans who booed. Both the defenders and the actual booers are pretty classless. But, that’s to be expected of a team that started framegate.

    Luck is entitled to end his career whenever he wants, and fans are entitled to boo whenever they want. Stop being so pretentious.

    —————————-

    “Entitled”? That might be one of Indy’s problems.

  30. I believe they were booing because he decided to retire one week before the season starts, not booing at Luck the player/person. It’s like he abandoned the team at this point.

  31. “The majority of players seem to feel the way Rodgers does, that Luck is entitled to end his career on his own terms, no matter what anyone else thinks.”

    I’m so glad this kind of thinking seems to be the most prevalent. Something also tells me that those who boo’ed were not yet fully informed of the circumstances, and that they were far more disappointed for their team than they were disappointed in Andrew Luck.

  32. Not a Colts fan, but looking at it objectively; were most of the fans booing his retirement or were they booing Luck? There is a difference. Emotionally, these fans saw the chance of a great year disappaite before their eyes and I’m sure they were disappointed and were upset at the thought of his retirement. They’re fans of the team first, after all. Were most of them truly booing Luck himself, or his decision?

  33. What’s so wrong with the fan’s booing? Luck wouldn’t have a salary if not for the fans anyway, their financial involvement pays his salary. So they don’t have a right to boo? I would have boo’d had I been at the game as a Colts fan. An NFL game isn’t cheap, and being a fan requires a financial and emotional investment. We earned the right as patrons to express our pleasure and displeasure. Rodgers needs to put a sock in it..

  34. Let’s face it. Fans don’t have much ammunition at a stadium to show their emotion. They can clap, moan, groan and boo and howl. What did you want them to do here? The more I think about it the more I’m sure most fans were booing the thought of him retiring, not booing Luck himself. Maybe someone should have organized a “Please Don’t Retire Andrew” chant, but try doing that at a preseason game, Ha!

  35. Whatever, they’re fans. It’s a tough guy sport and people are jerks. Cry me a river with your $100 million. Sure you’ve had a tough career, but so have countless GI Joes and GI Janes, teachers in terrible schools, etc. $100 million and y’all can boo me every day. You can boo me eating pizza. You can boo me kissing my wife. You can boo me brushing my teeth. $100 million.

  36. Fans aren’t booing because he retired. It’s how and when. Both of which Colts fans should have every right to be put out over. Regardless if Aaron Rodgers agrees with them or not.

    Most Colts fans that boo Luck are probably the same ones that wish him well. But that still does little to remove the fact he left the team in a bad spot. And yes, it would have been better to go on IR and collect a paycheck so the team could buy time to find an heir apparent or add the requisite depth to account for the void.

    ~NotAColtsFan

  37. Was an absolute disgrace to the game and the player for the fans to boo like that. you have to be a special kind of pathetic to act like that.

  38. He quit, some fans booed, some didn’t, and Luck walked off the field at the end of the game. Luck doesn’t owe them anything and they don’t owe him anything. Who really cares whether Luck quits on his teammates and under own terms or the fans boo him for his choice?

  39. They’re not booing Andrew Luck the person they’re booing Andrew Luck the product, a QB for their favorite team that just retired and left the team 2 weeks before the season starts. They paid for tickets and got stuck with them. Nobody wishes Mr Luck any ill will or hardship, most wish him the best in his future. Calm down A A Ron you whine and whine. Every time they talk to you.

  40. If Aaron Rodgers said someone’s baby was beautiful, he’d have the same people trashing him for that, too. No matter what Rodgers does or says, he is hated by these people who don’t have a life.
    It’s disgusting to me too that people booed Andrew Luck. And it’s disgusting to me the way people slam Aaron Rodgers. What is it, exactly, that makes these people hate this guy so much? I just don’t understand it. I believe it’s pure jealousy. He has what they’ll never have and they can’t stand it.

  41. No love for Aaron Rodgers, and how ironic that one of the league’s most whiny players is mad because people are whining!

    But it is extremely bad form for Colts fans to boo this guy. Shameful. What a disgrace. The entire state of Indiana should issue the guy an apology. There was no call for that.

    —————

    The guy was the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2012 and signed a fully guaranteed $22 million contract with a $14.5 mil signing bonus his first year. Plus he just *gave up* $58 mil in potential future earnings. Luck was always going to make a boatload of money in the NFL, so it’s ridiculous to wonder whether that would have ever been a factor in his decision to retire now.

    He spelled it out pretty plainly: “It’s been four years of this injury, pain, rehab cycle,” on top of the calf/ankle injury he’s currently dealing with. Sounds like that was all it took for him to pull the ripcord. And good for him.

  43. They weren’t booing Luck. They have limited means by which to explores their frame of mind. They were booing the unexpected and unsettling news.

    Rodgers is getting a sense of his departure from Packer fans will occur and he does not like it
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I doubt Rodgers will pretend to retire three times just to trick management into giving him an unconditional release.

  45. Easy for others to sit back and call Colts fans names for booing Luck. I’m not a Colts fan or a Luck fan but i am a football fan. If the most important player on my team up and retired a week before the season i personally wouldn’t choose to boo him but i would be really bummed and i can understand other fans being bummed. They can express themselves however they want. I’m guessing those same fans will cheer him years down the road when he has his # retired or goes into the Colts HOF or whatever but I’m certainly not going to judge them for being fans.

  46. Obviously this is Andrew Luck’s decision and he deserves to do what he wants to do but those that think in disregards to Adam Schefter, BS on that. It’s his job to divulge stories such as this and he needed to do it as that’s the way the media is. If he did not do it then, what, does he go to his other members of the media and tell them and then they all agree to do it after the game? What a laugh! Media reporters such as this, trivial though they are since one beating the other by a matter of minutes is just laughable to those of us in the real world, that’s their job, that’s what they’re paid to do, that’s what their bosses tell them to do, understood. Silliness abounds on this issue.

  47. This situation reminds me of Packernation the year after the Packers traded Favre away.

    People burning his jersey and making fools of themselves booing one of the best QB’s in Packer’s history.

    All because Ted Thompson traded him – they booed Favre.

  48. Aaron actually was talking more about how the leak of the info was handled. The fact that Andrew was not able to personally announce his own retirement and his reasons for doing so before it was leaked out. I don’t think Colts fans would have booed Andrew after his press conference.

    Aaron didn’t think Luck getting booed was warranted, but his “disgust” was more with Adam Schefter than with Colts fans.

    Adam Schefter now smiling and going around bragging that he got the scoop of the year so far is indeed disgusting to most people.

    #GoPackGo!🏈

  49. This booing issue is so blown out of proportion.
    The majority of the fans were booing out of shock and disappointment. They were voicing their disappointment.
    Not booing the man.

    Put yourself there. You’re a season ticket holder and/or a die hard fan. You’re excited for this season for the first time in years because the Colts look like they could make some noise in the playoffs for the first time since Manning.

    And all of a sudden amidst all that excitement and optimism, you hear through Twitter that your star QB is suddenly retiring.

    You respond in the moment. You’re confused, angry and disappointed.

    Give the fans and this story a break/rest. If they continue to boo after they have time to process it all…..then hammer them.

  50. Not me… he’s a quitter… quit on his team and his fanbase and I’m not a Colts fan. Weak

  51. Hopefully the next time he takes the field in Indy the fans cheer him as someone that gave a lot to their franchise. With all the punishment he took to try to make an impact for that organization, it would be nice for them to celebrate his contributions.

  52. I have no problem with Luck doing what he’s doing. It’s his life. I also have no problem with fans booing. Hey Aaron, you get paid a ridiculous amount of money by those fans. Just play ball.

  53. nobody is suggesting that fans aren’t entitled to boo. of course they are…but in this case, they are trash for doing it.

  54. So what did he expect? to be showered with adoration? Carried out of the stadium on all of the Colts fans shoulders? First ballot hall of famer? I don’t blame Luck one bit. Smart decision, but being a smart guy I think he should have known that his retirement wasn’t going to go over very well. At the end of the day, Andrew Luck fell far short of expectations. Take the money, ignore the booing, but spare me the crocodile tears.

  55. Wow. Humanity is in trouble. A non-athletic regular person would be sitting around trying to figure out how to collect disability based on all the injuries this man has had. You can’t boo a gladiator!

    —————-

    Yeah. If you get asked a question, no matter what it is, just say no comment! Like our QB!

  57. He gave EVERYTHING he had to the Colts franchise, if he waffled on retiring, or went to the a rival I could see boing him then, but booing him while is still wearing COLTS gear, on the COLTS sideline next to what was suppose to be his Colts teammates for the rest of the game until a story got broke, is repulsive. I understand some things in life shock people and its hard to believe its happening, when something tragic, or shocking happens,it knots your stomach up and you’re emotions get away from you, but that when it effects you’re life directly.

    This is still a sport at the end of the day, and this is a man who decided he was done working, and there is nothing wrong with a grown man deciding when hes done working and deciding what to do with his life and his time moving foward.

  58. All because Ted Thompson traded him – they booed Favre.
    ——
    Perhaps you’re memory is a little fuzzy but Favre retired, had a tearful press conference, then decided he wanted to come back after Rodgers had been given the starting job, starting acting like a child, arranging a primetime interview Greta Van Susteren in which he slammed the team and Rodgers, then went on to pull the same thing with the Jets in order to get his release to go to MN solely to spite the Packer fans and team. He got booed because he deserved it at the time. But you remember it however you need to if it helps make you’re point.

  59. If you boo luck that is just sad and Rahjah’s correct it is disgusting. I would love to watch that person booing Luck take all those hits he took. I’d like to hear them say “yeah I want to spend better and more quality time with my family, but instead I will entertain football fans and destroy my body”.

    Besides if his body heals I think there is a good chance he comes back. That is why the Colts are not going after all the money. That is just a hunch though – similar to climate change being a Chinese hoax.

  60. Not as disgusted as that dude who Rodgers bet and promised tickets and money if he lost, well A-Rodg lost and then skipped out on the bet.

    First of all, there is nothing scummier than welching on a bet. Rodgers still owes that guy.

    His word is worthless. So who cares what his lying, blow hard mouth says. The more years he plays and the more it comes out about his internal politics, not running called plays, not trying to circumvent his coach.

    He isn’t a good guy.

    To the ‘fans’ who believe like this guy, I sincerely hope that you never have to face booing for a decision you make to preserve your future. Total mindless uncaring for anything but winning and that is sad.

  62. Luck through Schefter’s Twitter:
    “Hey, I’m retiring… now. Bye”

    Blindsided fans with Luck in front of them:
    “Yaaaay, wooo hooo, thanks, you’re great!”

    Where does THAT happen? Seriously, that’s what you think? The booing actually surprised and shocked you under these circumstances?

  63. C’mon people, lumping an entire city into this because of a mostly empty stadium at a worthless preseason game into all Colts fans booed him is ridiculous. At that time, there were likely drunken idiots who did this and don’t forget, there were a lot of Bear fans in there too who probably chimed in just because… Now all of a sudden, it’s ALL Colt fans participated. Get real!

  64. No one cares when the fans feal disgust, when a player holds out for every last cent, no matter if it cost the team a championship. Man up you bunch of over paid cry babies. Bring back real football when real men played the game!Not all this cry baby stuff.

    what do you want them to do? cheer because they are now looking at jocoby brissett to lead them into the playoffs? Their best player just quit and they know their season is in the trash heap right now.
    ———————

    It’s not like Luck was going to even start this season, so they were looking at Brissett either way.

  66. “Let’s everyone calm down. I’m sure there were good reasons for him retiring and the fans responding the way they did. Can’t we just get along? Let’s talk about it and relax just a little bit. We’ll all be better people and players for it.”

    -Caspar Milquetoast……..AKA, Kirk Cousins

  67. People were booing because they found out 2 weeks before the season starts, not because he is retiring. He should have told them a few months ago and avoided this situation.

  68. He got booed because he deserved it at the time. But you remember it however you need to if it helps make you’re point.

    I haven’t known Rogers to care about anyone other than himself ,so this is odd !
    __________

    No, not really odd at all.
    Obviously you must not read a lot, or follow the NFL that much.

    Rodgers has been very involved in donating money and his own personal time to local charities here in Wisconsin and in his home state of California.
    He’s also been a very active participant and member of the MACC Fund, which battles childhood cancers and tries to ease the suffering of those inflicted.

    Aaron has been known to praise and has gone to bat for many of his teammates past and present in the news and social media over the years.

    In fact, just look back at his Instagram account from last week to see a very moving tribute he dedicated to his friend and former teammate, Cedric Benson, in the wake of his passing.

    Or, you can just go back to sticking your head in the sand and just irrationally hate the guy.

  71. Everyone always wants to point the finger and feign outrage at the actions of another team’s fan base. We call the actions disgusting, we tell ourselves how we would never act this way, we take the moral high ground because we are all so much better than the fans sitting at a preseason game in the 4th quarter who decide to boo the decision of their franchise QB to retire two weeks before the season opener. What would you do? Sitting in the stands wearing your Luck (or Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Wilson) jersey looking forward to good season and making a playoff run and then all of a sudden your phone dings to tell you its all over before it even starts.

    I wish Andrew Luck the best in life and we can all agree that he has the right to make the best decision for his heath, his family and his future. But can’t we all also agree that fans have a right to be disappointed and to react to his decision in the moment?

    Not surprising Rodgers is mad at the Colts fans. He doesn’t even like his own fans. But neither did Favre so….

    —————————————————————————————
    I hope everyone reads your comment to see first hand how foolish Rodgers’ critics can be.
    If there were an award for the dumbest comment of the week, you’d be in the running. I don’t understand how you can even say something this ridiculous.
    Between you, Iriani1985, and Cheeseisfattening, it’s very difficult to pick out who makes the most childish comments about Aaron Rodgers. All three of you are so ridiculous, it’s beyond comprehension.
    The three of you should get together and twist each other’s noses and pound on each other like the 3 Stooges used to do. But I don’t think you’re as smart as the Three Stooges were, so you’d probably hurt yourselves.

  73. “Shhh Packers fan have framed pictures of Rodgers in their house.”

    ======
    In my music/sports cave there is a large framed picture of Aaron and Bart Starr together. Also, a framed autographed 12 jersey. That’s the only “framed” Rodgers stuff. A ton of other Packers, Badgers, Bucks, and Brewers great stuff though.👍

    I loved the guy as a player. Pretty immature human most of his career. No issue with him getting boo’ed in his return.

    Ripping Viking fans hearts out the closest they got to a super bowl in years was also priceless. Then giving them that stinker of a second year, getting swept by the packers, and mailing the last half of the year in was also right up there. I can see why Viking fans love him…

  78. “Shhh Packers fan have framed pictures of Rodgers in their house.”
    _________

    Nothing framed of Rodgers yet, though I’m sure someday I’ll get around to it.
    Several others adorn my office walls though.

    The 1919 team picture, Don Hutson, Curly Lambeau and Ray Nitschke are a few of my favorites.

    I own several trading cards from the ’61 Championship team, as well as a piece of that game’s goalpost. (One of my favorite teams, so I actually own more than I should.)

    I have a glossy of Favre celebrating his TD pass to Andre Rison in Super Bowl 31 that I had personally signed by Brett, I just haven’t got around to matting and framing it yet.

    And I’ve recently obtained a large Jerry Kramer signed print as he’s carrying Lombardi off at the conclusion of Super Bowl 2, Vince’s final game as head coach of the Packers.

    I’m running out of space, so I tend to rotate, but I’m still partial to Super Bowl memorabilia.
    For the Barney fans tuning in at home, the Super Bowl is the NFL’s Championship game and is usually the final game of the season.

    Not surprising Rodgers is mad at the Colts fans. He doesn’t even like his own fans. But neither did Favre so….

    —————————————————————————————
    I hope everyone reads your comment to see first hand how foolish Rodgers’ critics can be.
    If there were an award for the dumbest comment of the week, you’d be in the running. I don’t understand how you can even say something this ridiculous.
    Between you, Iriani1985, and Cheeseisfattening, it’s very difficult to pick out who makes the most childish comments about Aaron Rodgers. All three of you are so ridiculous, it’s beyond comprehension.
    The three of you should get together and twist each other’s noses and pound on each other like the 3 Stooges used to do. But I don’t think you’re as smart as the Three Stooges were, so you’d probably hurt yourselves.

    Everyone always wants to point the finger and feign outrage at the actions of another team’s fan base. We call the actions disgusting, we tell ourselves how we would never act this way, we take the moral high ground because we are all so much better than the fans sitting at a preseason game in the 4th quarter who decide to boo the decision of their franchise QB to retire two weeks before the season opener. What would you do? Sitting in the stands wearing your Luck (or Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Wilson) jersey looking forward to good season and making a playoff run and then all of a sudden your phone dings to tell you its all over before it even starts.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Very well said. What’s really sad is that the finger-pointing in these threads is often the same guy “calling out” his own alter egos.

  81. Rodgers shut up…It’s 2 weeks before the season..It’s a billionaire industry and the the fans make you rich….not like any of you Madonna’s never make mistakes…I’m
    a Packers fan and getting tired of Rodgers all ready.

    Odd sign-in name for a Packers fan.

  83. One week he wants beer prices lowered so the fans will make more noise, the next he complains because the fans make too much noise. Can’t please the guy.

  84. The troll/stalker thinks saying he is a Packers fan gives him credibility, but really it just proves how much he respects and worships us.

    A real Packers fan you can tell right away without them feeling the need to try and convince you they are a Packers fan like that clown.

  85. Rodgers is one of the few players that has earned the right to publicly speak his mind and has the confidence to do so without caring what haters are going to say or think. Can you imagine Cousins speaking out with an original opinion? Never happen. He’ll continue to toe the line like a good boy. He’s the modern day version of Caspar Milquetoast.

    The lack of self awareness is staggering along with the lack of shame from someone who actually was busted doing that very thing.

  87. Are you really still talking about a post of mine from 4 months ago? You need to get out more for real.

    There, now you can obsess on that for 4 months. Have fun.👋

  88. I try to envision how other people go through life before judging the choices they make. But I can’t for the life of me figure out how the Vikings fan posters on this site can be so unaware of their jealousy, ignorance, and immaturity.

    We get it. You wish you had Aaron Rodgers. You wish the Vikings were at least mediocre. You wish the Packers weren’t so much better. But the way that Aaron Rodgers articles are like crack to you…it’s just pathetic.

    Facts are facts, and you guys are losers.

    green and yellows hate to be called out

  94. To be frank, I’m a Packer fan, I would not mind it at all if Rodgers decided to do the “unselfish” thing and retire. I thought the Pack should have traded him for a decent QB and a bunch of draft picks Manning-Rivers style before the big contract. I think the Packers would be in a better place if that had happened.

  95. To me at least, the only justification for ever booing a player is if they’re not putting out a decent effort or they’re intentionally playing dirty and/or willfully breaking the rules.
