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.

Rodgers is one of the most arrogant players in the NFL. I would have loved to seen him wear a Smith jersey after the Niners owned him on Sunday.

Maybe getting out of a bet is covered by his discount double check.

Seriously? Aren't there more important things to worry about. He would get in major trouble for wearing another teams jersey. He gets paid millions to wear the number 12 jersey he was given by Packers. He would be disowned by fans if he did that
