If it weren’t for Tom Brady being the greatest quarterback of all time, Aaron Rodgers probably would have gone down as the best quarterback of his generation. Rodgers is also a douchebag, and I’m okay with that.

Sometimes we hold professional athletes to standards that are unfair. Ya, kids watch the games and idolize the players, but Aaron Rodgers throws a ball for a living. As a father, I hope my kids will look up to somebody like Bill Gates because they have a better chance at making a billion dollars creating software than they do making the NFL.
It’s been an interesting month for the Green Bay Packers quarterback. He tested positive for COVID-19, which revealed that he had misled the media into believing he was vaccinated. He also broke some protocols, faced the media without a mask, attended a party, but since the NFL cares more about taunting than COVID, he walked away with a small fine.
Rodgers also took medical advice from Joe Rogan.

Rodgers hurt his toe and called it a COVID-related injury. That led to an unnecessary media frenzy. But Rodgers brings a lot of this shit on, himself.
Rodgers played games with the Packers the entire off-season, hosted Jeopardy, talked shit on the Pat McAfee show, and just oozed arrogance.
I don’t have an issue with anything Rodgers has done. Besides paying him $220 million, the Packers have treated him like shit. We can also be honest that the media has treated him like shit. So, nobody can be upset when he gives everybody the big FUCK YOU.
But his fan base also has to stop defending him like he’s a saint. Nobody expects Rodgers to quit football to focus on his humanitarian work. He’s a rich athlete with an attitude. He’s also a great fucking quarterback. It’s okay for Rodgers to be one of the greatest of all time and a douchebag.
I love how people are actually questioning Aaron Rodgers sanity for showing his feet. Don’t make up stories and hound him so much in the first place, and his feet stay in his shoes. Plus, it was funny as hell. Get a life.

While Tom Brady lives his fake life and pretends that he’s not “the baddest mother fucker on the planet”, Aaron Rodgers just doesn’t give a fuck. You have to respect that. But let’s not pretend he’s anything but a prick.
