Post-COVID, Aaron Rodgers won’t do in-person press conference, opting for Zoom instead

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers returns to action on Sunday, after missing last week’s game due to a positive COVID test. After the Week 10 contest against Seattle, he won’t be returning to the press room.

Per multiple reports, Rodgers will conduct his post-game press conference by Zoom.

That will exempt Rodgers from having to wear a mask when he speaks. He presumably will continue to conduct video press conferences for the rest of the season, since he has made it clear that he disagrees with the requirement to wear a mask during press conferences.

His Sunday session becomes his first meeting with the media since testing positive — and since it became clear that he lied to reporters (and everyone else) about his status during a prss conference on August 26. It will be interesting to see the mixture of old-business questions about his handling of his vaccination status and new-business inquiries about today’s game. It also will be interesting to see if/when the team cuts off the questions before every question is asked.

  1. Rodgers is just the latest in a long line of dirty guys who only care about themselves. Lying, putting others at risk … no problemo. Just do what you like. Cause you’re good at a game.

  2. He had covid. I thought that means he doesn’t have to wear a mask for the next few months.

  3. Well if he doesn’t like wearing a mask, get vaccinated!
    The unvaccinated are causing the pandemic to continue !

  4. since he has made it clear that he disagrees with the requirement to wear a mask
    ___
    Irrelevant what he disagrees with especially as he hid his disagreement with lies and deceit.

  5. Of course he doesn’t want to wear a mask — he is so clean-cut and good-looking it might detract from his Hollywood future stardom. lol

  6. He had covid. I thought that means he doesn’t have to wear a mask for the next few months.

    The unvaccinated despite having Covid-19 are 5 times more likely to get COVID-19 again compared to the vaccinated. He needs to wear a mask!

  7. I am so sick of this whole thing. I am sick of the people who say deliberately, misleading people isn’t lying. If you truely don’t understand, no one can explain it to you. I am sick of the NFL applying discipline based on thier needs not their rules. ( there are only so many big markets. They need small market teams to be successful if they want to keep growing , so the Packers get special treatment.) I am sick of teams having their stars leave after we fans became invested in them because football is a business. Please don’t report anymore about this guy. Let’s enjoy football and root for our teams and pretend that football is a team sport filled with team players who play for the desire to win and the love of the game. Just for a couple of weeks huh?

  8. The perfect way to put all those nasty reporters with tough questions on mute .. sorry dude bad connection but will take those soft ball questions that make me look good n will always bear fruit while acting like a low level brute.

  9. Not a fan of all these NFL and real life covid protocols but one shouldn’t lie about it. Make your choices and live with them. He lies. Does anyone care what he has to say anymore?

  10. The only reason the stats say that the unvaxxed are 5 times more likely to get the virus is because the CDC only records breakthrough cases that lead to hospitalization or death. They don’t record or put out the information of all the other vaccinated people who catch it and pass it on. That right there is misinformation. Kinda like what Rodgers did? If they aren’t giving us all the information its pretty shady. Judging by the NFL alone I can tell you right now that the vaxxed catch it and pass it at a much higher rate than what we’re told.

  11. Of course he wont. This will give him the ability to blame the internet / Zoom phantom problems whenever someone asks him a difficult question. Like why did you mislead the public?

  12. Such a ridiculous situation. Im glad this attitude wasnt around in the earlier days.

  13. Actually, the virus is causing the pandemic to continue.
    Yeah, because of all the unvaccinated morons!

  14. He made his choice, he didn’t try to convince anyone to not get vaccinated, more people may have got vaccinated because they thought Rogers was vaccinated, and now he is taking a very reasonable step by social distancing via zoom. Go find another target.

  15. Bwaaa Arod no likey being in front of reporters post game….dude is a straight up jerk job. Crucified?? No you’re just exposed as a liar and coward.

  16. I’d like to hear reporters say things like, “Hey, Cootieman! How about congratulating your team for keeping you upright, catching your passes and those fine defensive performances?”

    “Hey, Cootieman! Are you going to move to Miami before playing for Minnesota?”

    “Hey, Cootieman!”

    Etc.

  17. He can mute the background while he speaks, avoiding interruptions of questions that matter. Chicken. Liar.

  18. Isn’t this like locking the barn after the horse has been stolen. What a horrible, horrible person. The definition of ego maniac.

  19. Look at everyone in here crying. Wonder what happened to tough people. Lots of weenies post here

  20. He sure made a quick and full recovery! All of the vaxxers are bummed about his fast and full recovery. Way to go 12!!

  21. Who cares about that pathetic liar and that protected franchise? It will be a better day in the NFL when the diva is gone for good.

  22. If he is required to wear a mask on the sidelines then why isn’t he required to wear one on the field or in the huddle? Oh yeah I forgot you can’t catch Covid while playing.

  23. I know the difference between being vaccinated and not being vaccinated. You see, I went to a medical facility for a VACCINATION. It was clearly noted as a Moderna vaccine that had to be administered in two does. I fail to grasp how a so-called HOF QB that is now getting gray hair could somehow confuse receiving medication as receiving a vaccination. Did he get the medicine via a shot or did he receive it orally?

    This guy intentionally deceived others and should be banned for his deception. Hopefully his career will end on the field as they pull his face out of the sod of the frozen tundra.

  24. You can still contract the virus with the mask and if you’ve been vaxxed. Aaron please just get the shot and be done with it.
