‘Nobody Is Victimizing You’ | Domonique Foxworth Comes For Aaron Rodgers Again

On Wednesday, Dec. 29, Rodgers addressed his future with the Green Bay Packers beyond this season.

“I’m not going to hold the team back from anything,” Rodgers said. “And once I commit — and if it’s committing to move forward here — it will be a quick decision.”

ESPN’s Domonique Foxworth, who has been critical of Rodgers this season, had another strong critique of the Packers quarterback, saying Rodgers should stop playing the victim.

Last offseason Rodgers and/or his camp made it known he did not want to return to the Packers. He skipped the entire offseason of workouts and returned to the team the day before training camp opened in July.

When he returned he aired a list of grievances he had with the organization, including general manager Brian Gutekunst’s decision to draft quarterback Jordan Love for the future. Rodgers also questioned head coach Matt LaFleur’s coaching style.

All along the way, Rodgers took on the posture of some sort of victim.

Then there was Rodgers’ outright lie and blatant disregard for the NFL’s vaccine policy, saying he was “immunized” knowing that he was not vaccinated. All season he was allowed to follow the guidelines of a vaccinated player, which are very different from an unvaccinated player.

Earlier this season Rodgers used his weekly spot on “The Pat McAfee Show” to spout right-wing propaganda about the COVID-19 virus, bemoan cancel culture, and once again play the victim.

He continues to use the weekly spot, which is seen by millions, to spread misinformation, faulty logic, and play the victim.

As stated, Rodgers is an all-time great, a multi-millionaire and one of the most recognizable athletes in America. There is a certain amount of privilege and cachet that comes along with that.

But that doesn’t mean he is without fault and shouldn’t be held accountable.

If he wants out of Green Bay and doesn’t like working for the organization, its management, and coaches anymore, own it. Don’t blame other factors.

The Packers have put an excellent roster around him the past two years that has allowed him to have another MVP season. From that perspective they’ve held up their end of the bargain.

Likewise if he thinks COVID-19 is a hoax, or that horse dewormer medicine is an immune booster, or that any other pseudoscience is what he practices, own that. Don’t blame the media, or cancel culture or anything else for persecuting you based on your beliefs.

Nobody is doing that.

Rodgers wants to operate like so many of the people in this country who cry personal freedom whenever asked to do something for the benefit of the larger society. He wants freedom, which he has. But he also doesn’t want to take responsibility for his actions or face the consequences of his free actions.

That’s not how this works, Aaron.

You chose to put the info out there about not being happy with the Packers. You chose to lie about being vaccinated and then operate under the vaccinated player guidelines. You chose to go on a national platform and spout pseudoscience.

All we’re saying is you have to own all of it.
