ESPN Confuses Aaron Hernandez With Aaron Rodgers; Rodgers Not Happy


ESPN was once the worldwide leader in sports. That all began to change when they changed their marketing strategy and focused pouring resources in to a morning talk show that featured a man trolling America with his asinine “opinions” on a daily basis. Since then, they have become a bit of a joke on social media and the blogosphere, so people are waiting around looking for their every mistake.

Unfortunately for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, that mistake came this week when Jeremy Schapp mistakenly referred to suspected murderer Aaron Hernandez as Aaron Rodgers.

Here is a clip:

Rodgers caught wind of the mix up and he was less than thrilled.

Even worse, ESPN’s Mike Golic repeated the mistake on live air Thursday morning, but he quickly apologized for the mix up.

It’s hard to see how you can mix up one of the best quarterbacks in the game for a recently released tight end that is facing first-degree murder charges and five other gun related charges, but hey, I guess it can happen to anyone.
