So Greg Jennings says some things about Aaron Rodgers and he is a prick.. Now Aaron Disses him back and he is a hero. Just another example of the kind of attitude that I find so hypocritical in sports fans. The bad guys can do no right and the good guys can do no wrong.Apparently the "just between two men" didn't apply once Rodgers had some time to think about his comments and be able to word them in such a way that people would take his side. Not that the majority would not have taken his side regardless of what he said.I know I am in the minority on this but Rodgers' comments about the hug and the conversation didn't do anything to increase my opinion of him.Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I have a low opinion of him or anything like that but I know don't think of him as highly as a lot of people do. I've said it before, he is not my favorite person on the Packers team. Taking the high road when people worship you is apparently not as important as when you are on the outs with them.I wonder what Jennings had to say about it.To dakota, If I collected jerseys I'd take you up on your offer in a heartbeat. I might have even traded you a Rodgers one for them.

Bad guys can do no right I guess...

Of course I just wasted my time writing this because since you could care less about this stuff I'm sure you are not reading it and I am even more sure you will not respond what with you caring less and all.
Aaron Rodgers today admitted that he had a restraining order put on Greg Jennings after Sunday night’s game. The action was set in motion by an extended, clutching hug that Jennings gave Rodgers after Sunday night’s game between the Packers and the Vikings. Rodgers admitted to feeling violated and trying to pull away during the several minute long interaction.“I kept trying to pull away but he just squeezed me tighter,” said Rodgers “He was kinda sweaty and his breath smelled like a bologna cheese sandwich.”Rodgers said the hug wouldn’t have been so bad had it not been the last in a long string of inappropriate actions by the former Packers wideout.
Jennings was interviewed leading up to the game. And he stated he hadn't talked to Rodgers about it his comments. He had months to call Aaron and make things right and he didn't. Even though he says he did talk with the WRs. Than when he knows the cameras are going to be watching, he makes this scene like he is trying to make up. If he was really sorry about his comments, he had more than enough time and opportunity to do it privately.
