Exactly.

 

I wonder if Rodgers is planning a preseason holdout.

Well that escalated quickly. I just tuned into this this morning I didn't really pay attention to the news yesterday. It sounds like Rodgers doesn't want to play for the Packers. So I'm not sure what their plans are. If they don't find a good resolution to this Gutekunst may be in trouble. SF sounds like they didn't have enough first-round picks to do it. Could be messy. Maybe this Denver deal is still alive though

So day one of the draft is in the books and there was no Rodgers trade. Presumably SF was rebuffed and it appears that DEN wasn't that interested in a QB and instead drafted a CB with Fields/Jones still available (both went in the next 6 picks so they're not a reach). Then Packers GM says they're not trading Rodgers. I'm sure today Schefter and the rest of the NFL spinsters (drama peddlers) will tell us he's still really unhappy and won't be in GB for long....

Sounds like = media folks reporting their sources tell them Rodgers is unhappy.   Maybe he'd like the Packers to give him some weapons or an OL instead of drafting his replacement and defensive players with their top picks. Doesn't mean he is threatening to leave or could hold out. 

 

Sure it could happen, and monkeys might fly out of my butt. Why do fans continue to believe all these rumors when so few of them pan out? What is gained by buying into this drama? Other than giving you something to talk about.

That's why we're here idiot. Can't you lighten up and have some fun with it? Whether it's true or not it's still fun to ponder.

No you're absolutely right. I think it's just kind of fun to speculate a little bit.  But Aaron Rodgers being a deliberate and intelligent guy he either wants those rumors to continue to put pressure on the Packers or he really does not want which is a big issue.

I'm just amused at how sports fans eat up this gossip.

Has Rogers debunked any of this?

I don't think they're all created equal. Some of the pre-draft hype gets over done and over speculated upon, but this Rodgers stuff does sound somewhat legitimate.

I think there's definitely something there. Rogers hasn't exactly diffused any rumors.

is there a reason why Rodgers -- assuming he truly is unhappy -- doesn't come out and say it and state that he's never ever taking a snap for GB ever again and he'd rather retire if he's not traded?

i guess what I'm asking is... what are the consequences to him saying that? (he can always praise the people of GB and state it's just the organization)

I think part of what makes it sound legit is so many people talking about it, from him being unhappy to the many rumors about potential trades. Mark Schlereth is saying "its as close to a done deal as you get, but it could still fall apart".  Hmm so "if he's traded I'm right, if he isn't I was still right."  

 

I'm just very skeptical, and find the amount of spin and wild speculation provided by the media (and eaten up by fans) bewildering.

See you're assuming he's either being traded or going to holdout or retire, when he's made no such comment. All based on innuendo, rumor and gossip provided by the media, from their many "unnamed but well connected sources."

 

Rodgers has said he wants to finish his career with the Packers, now suddenly that means nothing because media rumors swirl saying the opposite. Sure he's also expressed some unhappiness, which he should as they keep wasting draft picks that don't help them win a SB. You'd be pissed too. Does that mean he'll hold out, or retire?  Or be traded? Maybe, but I think the odds are lower than people are talking, many acting like its a done deal that he won't be on the field for GB come week 1. 

 

How many here will remember this in a week or two if Rodgers is not traded, or doesn't hold out or retire? Not enough.

Schlereth doesn't look for that kind of attention

i think his info is correct, which means something significant happened on one side of the trade at the last moment. My guess is that the DEN GM got cold feet about just how much he'd have to give up to get Rodgers.

i posted questions, not statements. Try to be less contrary.

Your questions ASSUME lots of things based on media speculation and ask why Rodgers isn't making statements that support those claims by the media.


Enjoy the rest of the draft and the HS drama games.

Calm down Karen. We aren't GMs, coaches or scouts. We're just a bunch of knuckleheads taking everything football. Stop worrying about everyone else.

From NFL Draft Kickoff: The #Packers are dug in and so is QB Aaron Rodgers. Remember, Rodgers' agent Dave Dunn helped Carson Palmer shoot his way out of Cincy... even if it took a while. Perhaps a similar game plan, stay tuned for the results.

The NFL is gonna be PISSED with all the Packers games that were more than likely going to be in prime time if this happens. Especially the Chiefs/Packers game. And right before the schedule announcement in a couple of weeks.

 

Would make the Broncos/Chiefs games must-see TV though.

I would play the long game with this ARod rumor. The salary cap hit goes down >$10 million if he's traded after June 1. So everyone just R-E-L-A-X and let this play out.

Speculation is that Denver has a deal in place but GB wants to wait due to the cap hit
