Aaron Rodgers has been a polarizing figure within the Green Bay Packers, but his latest comments may have his loyal fans seething.
If you were to ask Green Bay Packers fans about their feelings towards Aaron Rodgers, most would praise him for the success he delivered. Now, after his latest comments, there might be a change of heart.
NFL Reporter Dov Kleiman reported Monday that Rodgers, on Pardon My Take, revealed some interesting information about the Green Bay organization, saying, “Packers Stock has zero actual value.”
NBC Sports and Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio coincided with Rodgers, citing, “The stock has no value. At all. It’s just a piece of paper.”
Keep in mind that Green Bay is the only NFL team that does not have a singular owner but a community. Needless to say, Rodgers’ comments did not go well with some Packers fans, and social media had plenty to say about Rodgers’ beliefs.
Aaron Rodgers said having stock in the Green Bay Packers amounts to zero value
The reality of the situation is, regardless of what Aaron Rodgers said, he understands that the Green Bay Packer fans he is speaking about are essentially the same ones who have rooted for him since the day he was drafted 24th overall back in 2005. They are the only fanbase that he has ever played for.
Even if he is right, why must he be criminalized for it? It is well documented that Aaron is not someone to mince words. He speaks his mind and sometimes can be manipulative in the process; see the incident about being vaccinated, but this is what Green Bay has dealt with for over a decade.
In the end, if Green Bay wins the Super Bowl and he is the reason behind it, i.e., the Super Bowl MVP, maybe all of this can be pushed aside. However, there is an old saying that an elephant never forgets, amounting to great memory, and Green Bay fans will not forget these words. They might be playing them within their circles now as they discuss their star quarterback and expectations for the upcoming season.
