Aaron Rodgers lost way more than a chance at the Super Bowl this season

Aaron Rodgers, the outspoken quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, had a statistically marvelous season.

In December, he threw his 443rd touchdown, passing Brett Favre to become the Packers’ all-time record holder. He also became the first player in the team's history to be named to 10 Pro Bowls. In all, his 37 touchdowns this season and only four interceptions are enough to make him the presumptive favorite to win MVP at his ripe age of 38.

But Rodgers had a humiliating season, regardless — and not just because he mustered a pedestrian 225 passing yards in his final performance, a 13-10 playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers. When we look back on his year, everything Rodgers did on the field will be overshadowed by his selfish flouting of Covid-19 safety measures, his arrogant political rants and his exhausting victim mentality.

A rehash, shall we?

Rodgers was sidelined after testing positive for Covid on Nov. 3. Since the NFL has allowed Covid-positive players to continue playing if they’ve been vaccinated, Rodgers’ absence was a clear sign he hadn’t received the shots. This surprised many, since he’d previously — and evasively — claimed he’d been “immunized” against the virus. Then, after being called out for being deceitful, he accused a “woke mob” of trying to “cancel” him. Doctors be damned, in Rodgers’ view, he knows who the true “experts” are.

1. Being he's a Cal Berkeley grad I'd always liked Rodgers, despite his occasional quirks

Very disappointed in him re: COVID, and no longer a fan ...

3. He was raised in Northern California

He went to Berkeley to play football, nothing more. I doubt he set foot in many classrooms not sanctioned by the athletic department. I am a huge Packers fan, but I have had it with this spoiled right wing brat.

6. And I went to 2nd and 3rd grade at Quincy Elementary School

Which is about 40 miles from Chico if my geographic recollection is correct.

Also, my cousin's kid recently graduated from Cal State Chico.

I've always had a lot of reasons for pull for Rodgers ... but he's fucked it all up

7. Agreed

I'm a Cal graduate, and loved the fact that a Golden Bear was so successful.

I guess the Berkeley vibe didn't rub off on him.

Not a fan of his any more.

5. Yes, well ... I'z born in Oakland & my stepdad got his Masters at Berkeley

I (mostly) grew up in Walnut Creek just over the hill, and my whole family still lives in the 680 corridor there.

And I've partied (including concerts and sporting events) in Berkeley and Oakland like 1000 times, so ... when a famous football player is from N. Cal, and went to UCB, I tend to pull for them to do well.

He has disappointed me greatly of late ... it's been disillusioning.
