Go ahead and make fun of the guy who just donated $500,000 of his own money to people in need.

I hope Aaron Rodgers see's the NFL for the stupid silly game it is and walks away.

He could do more for humanity as the host of Jeopardy than some stupid football game. I know so many people that are cheered up alone just from Jeopardy in their daily routines.

The man donated $500,000 of his own money to help people with businesses in need during this time. That's more impactful than winning a 2nd super bowl.

After watching the guy on the Pat McAfee show this year, the man can offer more to humanity away from football than playing the game.

Aaron, I appreciate everything you have done over the years to offer happiness to us Packers fans.  Who cares being labeled the G.O.A.T. it means nothing and I know you know that.  We are all gonna be dead in 20-30 years.  History doesn't matter when you are dead.

You may not be considered the G.O.A.T. of football but your highlight reel speaks for itself.  I challenge anyone to look at Rodgers highlight reel vs any other QB and tell me who is really the real best football player from a singular player perspective.

Chiefs ML btw so this post doesn't get deleted by any mods.

Mahomes is no scrub. He can ball.

Anyone else notice how no member of the mainstream media will even speak of the "Pat McAfee" show?

They are so scared cause they are losing viewership.  Fucking duds is what they are.

 I love Mahomes as much as any Chiefs fan but I said even at a very young age that Aaron Rodgers is the greatest talent at the quarterback position the game has ever seen. I still believe that. Maybe Mahomes will change my mind, idk. ARod doesn’t have the the arsenal of weapons that Patrick does or the brilliance of Andy Reid. Aaron’s arm talent is UNMATCHED. The guy just flicks his wrist and it’s a tight spiral with velocity and deadly accurate damn near every time. He’s incredible and it sucks we don’t get to watch him square up against Mahomes in the SB.

Why would they be speaking of the Pat McAfee show? Do people ever think about what they are writing?

@stumptownstu

Because they mention anything else a player says on any major TV network or does off the field unless it's on Pat's show. I'm sorry but it's hilarious how Skip and Shannon would paraphrase something Rodgers said on that show as they were too afraid to mention it.

His $500,000 donation and his reasoning for it is light years beyond what any professional athlete has done in the past few months during this pandemic while everyone in government sits on their hands and does nothing.  

That's why it fucking matters.

TV programs will very rarely mention their competition. Every now and then you'll here skip mention when he was at "the other network". It's got nothing to do with Pat personally. It's just not good business to mention your competition.

Totally agree that Aa-RON did all he could do in the boonies of Wisky last season and the 13years prior once he finally got the keys to the Cheesemobile.

He's got his sights set on a new path forward.  He and his Mermaid (can you even say that word any more?) gonna map the oceans and create holograms of same so they can move through the oceans without getting wet.  And if he has time for hosting JEOPARDY all the better for all of us.

Rodgers makes 50 mil a year (at least).  500,000 is 1 percent of that.  Plenty of average Joes making 50,000 a year will donate a lot more than $500.  

 

Last year, I donated a much larger percentage of my income
