Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was so confident that fellow Wisconsin superstar Ryan Braun hadn’t used performance enhancing drugs, he bet a Twitter follower his salary that the reports weren’t true.
Of course, Rodgers isn’t the best at paying up bets – something Boyz II Men know all too well – so it’s unlikely that Rodgers will cough up the dough. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to be silent on the entire Braun situation.
Rodgers is expected to meet with media in the next hour or so, but Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Tom Silverstein caught up with the Pro Bowl quarterback who told him that it doesn’t feel good to be lied to.
Aaron Rodgers on Braun. “I’m just shocked. Disappointed. ”
Rodgers: “It doesn’t feel good to be lied to. “
Few stood by the side of Braun more than Rodgers and now outside of some of Braun’s teammates, it seems as if the Brewers slugger is running out of friends and doing so extremely quickly.
Rodgers could speak more on the situation in the coming hour or two but it appears he’s pretty irritated by the process and may shut down questions on it.
