Aaron Rodgers’ Social Media Accounts Shouldn’t Concern You
Today, I’ll predict that many radio shows, local and national, will spend too much time dissecting what Aaron Rodgers has done on social media since the Packers released his favorite receiver, Jordy Nelson. People will jump all over the fact Nelson’s personal media hype man Rich Eisen received a like from Rodgers about how Nelson couldn’t exactly replace Graham. Also, they’ll look at Rodgers’ Instagram where he says in hashtag form that ‘He can still play.’ In the era of social media, we want to sound the alarm, but honestly, it’s not something you should be worried about.
Hard to find the right words today to express what 87 means to me. No teammate exemplified what it means to be a packer quite like him. From living in GB full time, his incredible contributions to the city, state, and region, to his consistent, reliable play on the field. Definitely a sad day and the toughest part of this business. There will never be another quite like white lightning. #leader #brother #friend #baller #loyal #champion #legacy #intact #stillcanplayball #backshoulder #1stSBTD
Everyone should be allowed to do whatever they want on Instagram. I realize with the position that Rodgers is in, he cannot be going around and liking his favorite porn star’s tweets and Instagram posts, yet, if he’s talking about normal business stuff, he has a right to be sad. It’s okay for Aaron to feel pain, but it doesn’t immediately correlate to anger. He might say some things in the media that make him seem upset, but it should be taken for a grain of salt. The only time where it would be proper cause to raise a flag is if Rodgers doesn’t want to do an extension, although, it’s a WILD reach to think he would leave this team after everything.
The moral of the story is let the man live on social media. I know that’s a hard thing to do with a very public figure, but he has a right to dig into his feelings a little bit on the socials. Hope we get some ridiculous takes based off how someone uses social media because the sports world needs at least once a month to have some ridiculously dumb Rodgers takes. Additionally, if he acted like a robot to this move, it would have been weird too. Probably the headline then is ‘DID AARON AND JORDY HAVE A FALLING OUT?!’ This is why you guys suck.
