Colin Cowherd Says Aaron Rodgers Needs to Stop Playing the Victim Card

Green Bay Packers v Pittsburgh Steelers
Aaron Rodgers: "It's fake news, John [Kuhn]. That's the media cycle these days. Unfortunately, the media -- other than obviously yourself -- there's a lack of integrity, I think. There's a rush to put up headlines that are clickbait because the ad revenue is based on the amount of visits you get to your website. So instead of putting in a title that aptly fits the forthcoming article, it's more lucrative to post something that's going to generate the most commotion so that your site or your story gets the most hits possible. And when you're in a really low news cycle like in June and July, when there's not much football going on, that's the kind of stuff that comes out. We don't need to spend any time talking about it because it's complete ridiculousness." (For FULL INTERVIEW w/ John Kuhn, Click HERE.)
Colin Cowherd: “Aaron, if you want to talk about clickbait, YOU provided the bait when you called out your new head coach’s audible system and we the messenger had an opinion on it. YOU provided the ‘joint practices are stupid’ line decided on by your coach. Sorry, bruh, you provided the bait and it was clickable. We’re not supposed to talk about Aaron Rodgers and the Packers?? This is victim talk, and Rodgers has never been a victim.”

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why Aaron Rodgers needs to stop playing the victim card so frequently, as the superstar Green Bay Packers quarterback has partaken in quite the moody offseason, while continuing to launch passing aggressive jabs at his new head coach Matt LaFleur

Rodgers is angry that the media has run with stories concerning narratives of resistance coming from Rodgers towards his new coach, most notably Rodgers saying he hates joint practices (after Lafleur said he liked them), and then Rodgers voicing how he wants more freedom at the line of scrimmage (after LaFleur said the team has to work on their audibles).

Check out the audio below as Colin wonders why Rodgers is calling these reports ‘fake news’ and ‘clickbait’ when the media is simply relaying REAL news concerning one of the game’s best players.
