Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been in the news all offseason. From his being undecided if he’d return for another season, to his ever-changing love life, to his huge demands as it pertains to a contract to return for another season. Let’s not forget his dive into psychedelics.
In many ways, you can say Rodgers is a clout-chaser who enjoys being in the spotlight. If he doesn’t enjoy it why did he go on “The Pat McAfee Show” for weeks teasing fans and media about his future plans?
Rodgers also made the news during the season for his lying about being vaccinated, something that rubbed his teammates and NFL fraternity the wrong way.
During a recent appearance on Barstool Sports with BigCat and PFTCommenter, Rodgers was asked some questions about that false vaccination status. And let’s just say he was a bit perturbed by some of the things asked.

Rodgers Questioned On A Bevy Of Things: Didn’t Find It Funny
The hosts asked Rodgers a host of questions.
“How many people do you think you killed? What’s your count?“
“How many grandmothers? Let’s just do grandmothers.”
Rodgers gave a faint smirk, before responding.
“I mean, I know you guys are f**cking around, but I don’t find that part funny. I really don’t.”
Those questions only came up because of Rodgers fake vax status, that turned out to be false. Rodgers even missed a game after testing positive for COVID-19.
Rodgers Has Always Defended His Vaccination Status
After testing positive for COVID-19, the arrogance of Rodgers still made him believe he could explain away the fact that he put so many others at risk. Here’s what he said on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
“Look, I’m not in some sort of anti-vax, flat-earther. I am somebody who’s a critical thinker. You guys know me. I march to the beat of my own drum. I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something.”
The reigning back-to-back MVP continued:
“Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody. And for me, it involved a lot of study in the offseason, much like the study I put into hosting ‘Jeopardy!’ Or the weekly study I put into playing the game.”
Rodgers also stated he was allergic to an ingredient in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. And the issue with Johnson and Johnson and clotting gave him cause for concern.
What a smug response from one of the most self-centered players in the league. That type of attitude is a huge reason why star receiver Davante Adams wanted out. Even though the Packers offered him more than he got to be traded to the Raiders.
Rodgers likes to play the attention game but he doesn’t appreciate it when his actions are bring questioned and criticized, but who does these days?
