Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers found himself embroiled in controversy this week after testing positive for COVID-19.

As a result of the positive test, it emerged that he had never actually gotten vaccinated – despite many believing that he had. The reason why folks were under the impression that he was vaccinated is because he had previously suggested he was “immunized,” which was obviously misinterpreted as confirmation that he had gotten his shots.

On Friday, Rodgers appeared on Pat McAfee’s radio show and attempted to clear the air.

“First of all, I didn’t lie in the initial press conference,” Rodgers said. “During that time, it was a witch hunt that was going on across the league, where everybody in the media was so concerned about who was vaccinated and who wasn’t and what that meant and who was being selfish and who would talk about it, what it meant if they said it’s a personal decision and they shouldn’t have to disclose their own medical information.

“And at the time, my plan was to say that I have been immunized. It wasn’t some sort of ruse or lie. It was the truth, and I’ll get into the whole immunization in a second. But had there been a follow-up to my statement that I’ve been immunized, I would have responded with this: I would have said, ‘Look, I’m not some sort of anti-vax, flat-Earther. I am somebody who’s a critical thinker.’”

Shortly thereafter, Rodgers’ fiancée Shailene Woodley shared this message as an Instagram story:

“Calm Seas May Bring You Peace, But Storms Are Where You’ll Find Your Power,” the quote read.

Obviously people will interpret what precisely it means on their own.

Woodley and Rodgers’ relationship is a fascinating one. From the weird (and arguably shady) way they got together to the odd method by which they got engaged, it has been one strange turn after another for this duo. This is just par for the course.

Rodgers will now miss at least 10 days no matter what. Even if he records a negative COVID test, the soonest he can return to the field is for his team’s showdown against the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 14.

  1. What a selfish person you are Aaron! Did you think of others for even a moment? Lying by omission is still lying and you know that. Respect for you sadly is GONE. Terry Bradshaw said it best you are a liar.

  2. The clock is ticking on Tom Brady. He needs to stand up for the players and tell the NFL that they don’t need a union if it’s going to put young healthy men in great shape in this position. It’s not Aaron Rodgers fault and there was nothing wrong with what she said.

  3. Well..they may take the ‘immunization’ drug that Rodgers took too..since it is used for deepening animals typically..it does nothing for covid..lol..so he did indeed LIE.

  4. Well..they may take the ‘immunization’ drug that Rodgers took too..since it is used for deworming animals typically..it does nothing for covid..lol..so he did indeed LIE.

  5. The “woke mob” and “cancel culture” are not to blame for your lies. A.R. You lied. Purposely interchanging the terms vaccinated and immunized was a deliberate misrepresentation of the facts. If you felt strongly about your stance on this matter you would have been honest and forthright. Your integrity is shot. You let your team down. Your entitlement is evident, your lack of respect certain. Packer fan forever, Rodgers fan…never again.

  6. Arron and his doctor did what they think was best for him. He didn’t lie regardless of what everyone is saying. The NFL and the Packers organization and team mates were fully aware that he was immunized and they were okay with it. Getting the vaccine is not mandatory in the NFL so as long as protocols are followed no foul. How many other players didn’t get the vaccine? Do you know?

  7. Give Rodgers the benefit of doubt about his beliefs. He isn’t a sheep blindly following the party line on the virus and vaccination. His big mistake was not to clarify what he was doing and why. He clearly doesn’t know what it takes to be immunized.

    1. He is an idiot and an outright liar. If his doctor really thought he was giving him an effective treatment for COVID then he needs to go back to school or change professions.

  8. Nobody’s business. Aaron didn’t have to prove anything to anyone. He followed protocol to a T. If he got Covid, it was shed from those already vaxed! Stay strong Aaron and they can kiss you cure football butt!
