Aaron Rodgers needs to be prepared as his star rises, that the media and such things as Tweeter, are going to be repeating EVERYTHING he says and adding to it. Ever played the game of Gossip? Just like it. The more people that relay the message, the worse it gets. Good going in Super Bowl, Aaron Rodgers.

It would have been best to simply let the matter die down. As a team leader Aaron needs to help unite the team, rather than divide it. The decision to include the players on IR in the team photo was a good decision. It is not good to make it an "us versus them" thing.

Who died and made Rodgers the boss of his teammates? Who is he to tell other people how to live their lives? He doesn't know the first thing about their injuries or their rehabs. I hope the Packers get their behinds kicked.

AR needs to be smarter about what paths he allows reporters to take him down. He can think/feel/believe what he likes, but the laundry ought to be dealt with in-house.

A double standard in GB. The coach didnt like the IR guys saying anything in public. But the jerk off QB can basicly say and tell them what to do and were. And is in front of the media with the I I I shit and says they didnt stay here they are not part of the team. And the coach has NO problem with that. Harrison ,take another fine and khock this jerks head off. Please shut him up and stuff his gay belt were the sun dont shine.

Don't twist and add to appease whatever your agenda is. AR pointed out the obvious. If you ARE with us, BE with us. He has every right to his opinion, but he should NOT have aired the dirty laundry to the press.

As a fan, I'd rather see the IR players tough it out with the team. They cried 'foul' about the possibility of the team photo being taken without them, but they have no problem being absent from practices. That's a double standard. I'd be angry with them, if I was on the team. If they were in Green Bay, they'd be flying with the team... no problem. And, if they really want to be part of the team, they'd follow the lead of their QB and show up to practices whether or not they're scheduled to play.

But he knows some of the IR players have ZERO problem toughing it out in Green Bay AND showing up to practice. He's no one to tell other PEOPLE how to live their lives. But this issue isn't about PEOPLE, it's about TEAM MATES sticking out the season together. As I've pointed out, McCarthy had to change the team photo date for the IR players who decided to leave GB. How much money are the paid? And they can't afford to fly to GB to travel with the team for the team photo? That smells of spoiled millionaire-itis to me.

Double standard ONE guy can say what he wants and thinks and goes off with theI I I shit to the media (seems to think a whole lot of himself). When the IR guys went public FAT man didn't like it. Must be because he cant say a neg word about A-Gay-Rod Teddy's love boy.

Exactly. If/when GB wins titles, they entire team gets the glory. So, why not sit through practices you're getting paid for anyway? The washing of dirty laundry, however, is not cool (in all cases).
