Tom Brady steers clear of comments about Aaron Rodgers

When it comes to getting involved in the Aaron Rodgers controversy, Tom Brady is keeping himself immunized.

In his latest Let’s Go! podcast, Brady was asked about the situation with Rodgers, who lied about being vaccinated, blatantly and repeatedly violated COVID protocol in order to conceal his status, and then turned the tables on the “woke mob” when he tested positive and the truth came to light.

“Of course I figured you’d ask me about this,” Brady said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “I figured out I’m not commenting on Aaron Rodgers’ personal situation. Far be it for me to tell anyone what to put in their body. But by the way, the TB12 Method is available in paperback where ever nutritional books are sold and I’ll leave it at that. . . . Nope, just thought about it and obviously that’s how I feel and that’s all I’m going to say.”

It would be far more interesting if Brady chimed in. Then again, he admitted earlier this year that 90 percent of everything he says publicly is false. So maybe, at the end of the day, he can relate to Aaron telling something other than the truth in order to avoid stepping into a mess.

In this case, Brady’s only strategy to avoid stepping into that mess entailed saying nothing at all.

  1. Brady would create a distraction for the Bucs if he did say something. Nice move Tommy Boy.

  2. Brady is totally polished. He is always very professional and carries himself like a true pro. Act like you’ve been there before.

  3. Rodgers said he was immunized. Which he is. Just with a different process than the big pharma shots. No lies there.

  4. Every player on the Buccaneers is vaccinated, TB12 is extremely cautious about what he does to his body. That is ALL anyone needs to know regarding vaccination, if TB12 thought it was unsafe he would not be vaccinated!
    Over 750,000 Americans have died from COVID 19, vaccines have literally been a life saver!
    Get vaccinated, stop the pandemic!

  5. Yeah, it definitely helps the Bucs and himself to stay silent. If that’s all that matters to you, go chase your rings.

  6. We have been groomed by the powers to be that we need to speak all the time ,old saying SILENCE IS GOLDEN!

  7. What good would it do if he did chime in? It’s another man’s decision. He’s made his, let others make theirs. There’s no right or wrong here. There’s no certain side of the fence to be on. Leave the politics out of it.

  8. As a two-time cancer survivor, Bruce Arians has been pretty concerned about COVID risk. Somehow I don’t think he would be accommodating to a player, including Tom Brady, playing fast and loose with the COVID protocols or misleading people about his vaccination status.

  9. I’m a huge Packer fan and until now a devoted Rodgers supporter. I know Rodgers will resume playing for the Packers because there’s too much money involved. He has become, to me, a talented athlete only, without also being a person of character. It’s an admirable combination. We’ve all known low-character high-athleticism players in the past. It’s funny, the legacy and brand he was building was exactly that of a respected and intelligent person-of-note. He blew that out of the water.

    This is not about purposely avoiding the vaccine. That’s a completely separate act-of-stupidity. This is about subjecting unwary others to the failings of your own arrogance……..and then lying about it.

    If he happens to lead the Packers to a SuperBowl victory, I’ll be glad for every member of the Packers organization, except him. He’s become Somebody I Used to Know.

    There’s no right or wrong here.

    Yes, there is. This is not Bizarro World or an Idiocracy.

    ______________________________

    Despite the cute phrasing, he lied with his actions too: no mask on the sidelines of preseason games, no masks during indoor press conferences. And that’s just the public video…

    well, except he’s not.

  13. “Rodgers said he was immunized. Which he is. Just with a different process than the big pharma shots. No lies there.”

    He was asked if he was Vaccinated and he said yes as he shook his head forward. Case close.
