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.

Do you actually think that the Packers don't have something in ARod's contract about wearing another team's jersey while he's a Packer? AND, the boy band was LUCKY to have a venue like Lambeau, after all, who remembers them anyway?

For most of you here that don't follow sports, The 49'ers passed on Rogers and drafted their current QB Alex Smith. Now why the F would the guy wear a jersey for a team that passed on him. Bet or no bet, it's just stupid to think.

Whats funny is that other news outlets are doing stories on how NBC decided an interview with Kris Jenner was more important than observing the moment of silence like the rest of the country.


But TMZ doesn't want to post anything that paints that whore family in a negative light.

Dear Mr. Rogers:

Now save face and start winning. 0-1 start is not a good start for a team projected to the NFC finals/Superbowl.

Truth    

YALL NUTCASES! LIKE I SAID, THE PACKERS HEAD OFFICE GOT TO HIM. WHY WOULD A STARTING QB BE WEARING A COMPETITOR'S JERSEY AND THEN HAVE THE IDIOT PAPS LIKE TMZ FOTO THE DUDE AND HAVE THE PICS ON THE NET AROUND THE PLANET?? BAD PR MOVE FOR THE PACKERS... WORSE YET THE 49'ERS WOULD BE PISSED. THAT'S LIKE SAYING THIS DUDE SHOULD BE THEIR QB INSTEAD OF ALEX SMITH EVEN THOUGH RODGERS LOST. GET WITH THE PROGRAM TMZ... AS USUAL DOING THE CRYBABY ACT NOT THINKING BEFORE POSTING SH*T. #TRUTH!!

Backing out of a bet and not paying up, his reputation will go down faster than Mick Jagger's pants at a women's college party

Lying about this bet will curse Aaron for the entire season. He has guilt inside now, and he will play terribly as a result. Packers record in 2012: 6-10. Should've worn the jersey, you little cheese pu$$y.
