Don’t Try And Drive a Wedge Between Love & Rodgers
Everyone loves drama. They love the ‘tea’ as many people under the age of 30 would say. That’s why The Bachelor is one of the longest shows on television. Why there are four versions of The Real Housewives. Why Vanderpump Rules exist. Same for 90 Day Fiance. People fucking love drama. Therefore, it is not a surprise that people are already trying to start this war between Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love. It is disappointing, but not surprising in the slightest. That is what brings people into their site or gets the engagement that they so desperately crave.
For example, a media member last night asked Love if Rodgers had reached out to him. He said no. People will somehow make that a fucking story. Yes, Rodgers told Pat McAfee that he will try to reach out, and who knows, maybe Rodgers did before last night was over. He is on the West Coast after all. These two do not have to be best friends, but to act like Rodgers will hate the ground he walks on is overreactive and stupid.
We, as Packers fan, will get to see what it would have been like in 2005 if the Packers had social media where it is today. Back then, it was sports radio and a few college kids on Facebook. Every little fucking thing Rodgers says will become a storyline in some way. But to think of it, when didn’t that happen? Somehow, Rodgers became the bad guy in the league in the last few years. Maybe it is because he stirs up drama better than anyone else with quotes, body language, and anything else.
Is Rodgers an older version of Kevin Durant or the KD of football? Where the media hangs on every word out of a great player’s mouth and runs it as a story for their website. Durant and Rodgers feel weirdly similar to how they always seem to find themselves in drama. And even when they don’t try to, the media jumps all over them.
What will the Rodgers and Love relationship look like? We don’t know, but how about we wait until the guys are together before we start painting that picture.
