Aaron Rodgers

Yeah, I Made That Bet ...      But I'm Totally

WUSSING OUT!

0911-aaron-rodgers-gettyAaron Rodgers doesn't seem to understand the way bets work -- because even though he LOST a wager to Boyz II Men ... he's now trying to weasel his way out of paying up ... by throwing TMZ under the bus.

We broke the story ... the Green Bay Packers star agreed to a friendly bet with the guys from Boyz II Men -- if he lost to the 49ers, he had to wear an Alex Smith jersey the following week.

Well, the Pack lost ... and Boyz II Men told us they were confident the NFL star would hold up his end of the bargain.

But earlier today, Rodgers addressed the media -- and when he was asked about the wager, he sounded like a man trying to get out of donning his rival's jersey.

"There's nothing to that," Rodgers said ... adding, "That got blown way out of proportion."



Still, Rodgers DID acknowledge a bet was made ... saying, "It was at best a joke between friends, and, unfortunately, the great reporting of TMZ blew another one."

What did we blow? You made a bet ... you lost ... now you're not living up to it.

In fact, check out the tweet Boyz II Men posted in the final minutes of Sunday's game ... which reads, "Pressing the jersey now!"

Aaron, if anybody blew it ... it was you.

Seriously, I didn't think of this bet, except that the karma gods gonna make Rodgers pay for agreeing to it (which they did)... but I never, ever expected him to try to welch his way out of it. Two days after losing, THEN you're claiming it was a legit bet? That's pathetic, man. And why if the Ninners lost? Wouldn't you expect BIIM to be men of their words and wear Packers jerseys?

Don't write checks your ass can't cash Someone should go take away his imaginary belt.

The mole hill would be Aaron Rodgers putting on the jersey for five minutes and tweeting a pic. TMZ isn't making a mountain out of anything...just reporting the facts. This would have gone down a lot quieter had AR just come through on his end of the bet.

I'm guessing B2M aren't going to be doing him any more favors.
