Over the past few days, an online rumor has emerged regarding the question of whether Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is gay. We’ve ignored them, for a couple of reasons.

First, it doesn’t matter if he is. Second, he hadn’t personally addressed the rumor.

On Tuesday, Rodgers tackled the topic during his weekly appearance on ESPN Milwaukee. We know this because one of the ESPN Milwaukee on-air hosts sent us an email with a partial transcript of Rodgers’ comments.

“I’m not gay,” Rodgers said. “I really, really like women. That’s all I can say about that.”

Now the story will be that he responded to the rumors at all, and I am sure he will probably be condemned for it. Cant say you aren't gay or it may offend gays, and how dare you ...

I did a quick Google of that Lambert quote just to make sure I wasn't crediting the wrong player, and I ran across this editorial (http://www.slate.com/articles/sports/sports_nut/features/2010/nfl_halftime_report/if_you_cant_hit_the_quarterback_who_can_you_hit.ht ml) from a few years ago. I agree completely with the quoted section.

And lest it sound like I'm glued to the saddle of my high horse, I'm going to climb down now and say that I was flabbergasted by the second illustration in the "Illegal Hits" section of the league's player policy manual —the one showing "Player in the Act of or Just After Throwing a Pass." The league tried to confuse the issue by showing No. 35 maybe kind of busting No. 17 in the mouth with his shoulder. (The defender seems to have an extra shoulder pad growing out of his shoulder pad.) But the picture is not meant to tell players it's wrong to hit people in the face. It's meant to tell them not to rough the passer.

http://www.slate.com/content/dam/slate/archive/2010/11/1_123125_123037_2240711_2265769_2266531_101111_snu t_playersafetytn.jpg.CROP.original-original.jpg

As far as I'm concerned, the picture shows exactly what a defensive player is supposed to do to the quarterback. It's like a freeze-frame of my favorite moments from the Buddy Ryan era. When a quarterback drops back to pass, he is taking a risk. I don't see a victim in this picture. I see a guy who gambled and lost. He is going to hit the ground, hard, and that ball he was trying to pass is going to go sailing who-knows-where. Havoc is being wrought. The NFL has been legislating this play out of existence for years now. I think the Tuck rule game was when it was mortally wounded. Tom Brady didn't protect himself, the Raiders came at him, and Brady got nailed on a textbook blind-side sack-and-fumble. Except it wasn't, because some ridiculous rule said that a fumble wasn't a fumble, that if a quarterback tried to pass and changed his mind, that created a mystical safe space where he couldn't be responsible for losing the ball. Before, it was physics. The defender got a shot at the quarterback. If he got there fast, the prize was a sack, maybe with a fumble. A beat slower, and the prize was a wobbling duck, maybe a pop-up interception. A beat slower than that, and the defender still got to put the quarterback on the ground, give him something to remember him by. Only if he came in still another beat slower was it roughing the passer. Now it's metaphysics. The quarterback is "defenseless," because he is focused on throwing the ball. The act of throwing a football (or of deciding not to throw a football, or now of catching a thrown football) exists on a plane parallel to but outside of normal football, a plane where nobody is allowed to hit anybody—a dimension formerly reserved for punters who had already punted, and other similarly irrelevant characters. Not for the players who were actively trying to advance the ball."They should just put a skirt on the quarterback," Jack Lambert said in disgust, long ago, about much milder protections. When we hear these things from a Lambert or a James Harrison, it's natural to hear it as the voice of a big man annoyed that he can't hurt a smaller man. I have no sympathy for the players who are looking for a spot to injure somebody. Tony Siragusa grinding his bulk on top of a player half his size was nothing to be proud of. Yet defensive players aren't wrong to feel like the quarterback is getting away with something.

Not in my case. Brees scored 63 points Sunday against the Bucks and won me a $2,500 championship.

so there's a chance he looks forward to facing aggressive D's that want to pound him relentlessly into the ground.

He has little vampire teeth. Look at them. LOOK AT THEM.

Isn't it great we live in a country where if you are famous and you don't address a rumor the press will lay off and wait for you to say something about it in the name of professionalism? :sarcasm:

Try again, Mike Florio. Gotta love the press' coverage of itself.

It sounds like what he's saying is he's a bisexual.

That explains a lot about his personality. He is always trying to compensate for his little vampire teeth.
They're such tiny lil' suckers. :kingkong:

Aaron Rodgers. He's a real Packer. That explains why preferes to be under center.
