Aaron Rodgers’ fans are furious. There’s now constant talk about about a trade. And recently he was even booed
during a Wisconsin Brewers game Tuesday when his face appeared on an ad for Bergstrom Autos.
The quarterback for the Green Bay Packers has been in the limelight as of late, but not in a good way as Wisconsin fans feel betrayed by their MVP.
As the ad played in between innings during the minor league game at American Family Field in Milwaukee, fans let out their disappointment and frustration with boos for the Packer’s star. The scene was reported on by Milwaukee journalist Todd Rosiak, who took to Twitter to describe the audible dissatisfaction from fans.
“I’m hearing some audible booing from the crowd,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer posted. It all unfurled while Rodgers’ face came on the video board above the stadium. The Twitter comments below the post supported Aaron Rodgers and bashed the audience who booed him.
“We call those mouth breathers!!” One Twitter use replied. Another person pointed out that “as a Packers fan, we don’t deserve him. He has dragged this team on his back for so long. Let him go thrive elsewhere.”
The audible booing is likely a product of the recent drama surrounding Aaron Rodgers and his Wisconsin team, the Green Bay Packers. Reports claim that Rodgers is looking to take his NFL stardom to another team, with intentions to be traded in 2021. Though the nine-time Pro Bowler has not commented on the matter as of yet, Packers fans have been quick to throw him under the rug.
Aaron Rodgers likely intends to leave due to disagreements regarding recent draft picks, especially after the Packers took Jordan Love with a first-round pick in 2020. Rodgers would have preferred an offensive pick, despite going on to earn MVP during the season.
Aaron Rodgers’ current attitude has frustrated fans and pros alike, with Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw expressing his disappointment with how Rodgers is acting. “With him being that upset shows me just how weak he is,” Bradshaw bashed Rodgers during a radio broadcast. “Who the hell cares who you draft? He is three-time MVP in a league and he’s worried about this guy they drafted last year.”
“I don’t know what was said behind the scenes,” Bradshaw continued, “I don’t know if he said, ‘Look I’ll play [in 2020] and then I want out of here,’ and they said, ‘Fine.’ Then he is the MVP of the league. None of us know unless he told some insiders and they are saying it. I don’t hear it. For him to be upset, my God, I don’t understand that.”
It seems Wisconsin fans have already made up their minds about the potential divorce. The outrage at the Brewers game is evidence of that.
According to The Spun, ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler took a crack at naming Rodger’s next teams. Fowler said that the MVP might head over to the Denver Broncos, the Las Vegas Raiders, or the Seattle Seahawks. Some of those trades would be big hitters, but someone’s got to pay the price for the real deal.
However, Green Bay doesn’t look like it’s budging. The team has already made it clear they aren’t going to part with Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers, however, seems to be looking for his next home.
