Now he comes out and calls our QB gay when he hasn't a clue about his sexuality!
I'm getting involved against my better judgement, but I took it as a joke.  Of course, I would take "Mason Crossbar" as a joke also.

I would agree but it seems there was another post about it and it was deleted. It's really not something to joke about.

As far as Rodgers getting an extension, we have to do it, but make no mistake about it, it will limit our ability to provide quality depth and some starting areas are going to have to be on the cheap.

He has spoken many times about his love for Wisconsin, and how it feels like it's his home. He states he grew up here, and it was the first time he lived alone and etc etc etc. He also has to know that if he stays and accomplishes more records and championships he can forever top Favre as the face of the franchise. He will be the new Bart Starr, and that equals way more down the line then running away for maybe one title run. Maybe some will think that doesn't matter, but something tells me captain chip on his shoulder only plays nice for the camera.

I don't think he wants to go anywhere.

I expect a 5 year $150m contract, something like $50m guaranteed.

Too bad Aaron is gay. If he married a woman who makes more than him, like Brady did, maybe we could get s discount, like the Pats do.

Maybe he could marry a silicon valley or wall street gay billionaire?

From the guy who wanted to ban me for referring to Mason Crosby as "Mason Crossbar!"

That is just a real piece of crap comment right there Packer fans. I'm disappointed no one had the courage to call this out! 8 replies and no one said a word.  facepalm)

Whatever Rodgers gets he'll be underpaid compared to Stafford!

Someone did comment on it right away but it looks like post was deleted

Sad!

I don't care what his sexual preference is.

It wasn't a joke. It's very widely believed outside of Wisconsin that he's gay, it has been for several years, and that this is the reason he doesn't talk to his parents. Google it. Personally, I don't care who he sleeps with. Except if he can find someone seriously rich.

My understanding is the fued with his family had a lot to do with Olivia Munn.  Perhaps some damaging things were said, and we know he carries a chip.  Again, I dont think he's gay. JMO.

You mean on Vikings and Bears message boards?

It was reported last year that he doesn't talk to his parents for a variety of reasons that involve Olivia Munn, her best friend (and ex of Jordan Rodgers -- who cheated on her), and his supposed "Hollywood" lifestyle. That's not to mention his family taking the feud public and his little brother exploiting their relationship to gain fame.

I'm not here to call Rodgers a saint. In most likelihood, none of us know him personally. But this is ridiculous to even be coming up in conversation. It has nothing to do with football and nothing to do with Rodgers getting an extension.

Exactly on point. So, why not mention Stafford's sexuality, and his lack of an extremely rich partner? Or Derek Carr? The Brady situation is very unusual, and as far as I know, is unique in sports. The main point bears repeating:

"It {Rodgers' sexual identification} has nothing to do with football and nothing to do with Rodgers getting an extension."

Thanks.

I'll go back to not posting.

Ricky, you can take over the prediction thread.

Mark, I apologize if my post seemed like a personal attack. It was't meant that way. We've all been knocked at one time or another on this board. Though admittedly, you have been pummeled far more viciously and senselessly than anyone else. However, that doesn't mean you're above reasoned criticism when you write something so tone deaf. This is not an issue of being "politically correct", but an issue of relevance. Rodgers' sexuual identity has indeed been questioned by many people. So, if he had a "sugar daddy" he would sign for less, like Brady? Maybe. Maybe not. The real question is, why doesn't he take a hint from Jordy, who signed for less than he could have, saying he had more than enough money to carry him through the rest of his live- and, if carefully handled, for generations to come.

Now, time to stop bashing a wrongheaded post, and get back to the real topic- QB pay rates in future contracts. Just found this at PFT:

What a joke. You post saying that Rodgers is gay knowing exactly what the response it going to be, yet you crawl into the fetal position and try to make people feel bad for you. What did you expect?

I took it as a joke and the water ran right off my back. I've no clue what AR's up to, but if he's Gay and gets to spend serious time with Ms. Munn - think I might give it a try! Never considered it - HA!

Fyi, Rodgers and Munn are no longer an item.  Last I heard he was with some soccer chick.  Unconfirmed.
