Aaron Rodgers Should 'Man Up' ... Wear 49ers Jersey!

EXCLUSIVE

0914-ronnie-lott-aaron-rodgers-gettyGreen Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers needs to "man up" and stop trying to weasel out of the bet he made with Boyz II Men ... this according to NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott.

Lott is no stranger to friendly wagers -- the 49ers legend tells us he used to make similar fun bets with Huey Lewis back in his playing days ... and would always HONOR them when he lost.

And since Aaron lost his bet with B2M -- and should have to wear an Alex Smith 49ers jersey -- Lott tells us the QB needs to pay up soon ... or else it could haunt him later in the season.

“I have a feeling it will bother him the next time he plays the Niners. If they meet again this season, it will bother him.” SF and GB aren't scheduled to play against each other during the regular season -- but many expect them to face off in the NFC Championship game.

Lott tells us he wouldn't be surprised if Boyz II Men gave Rodgers a shot at a "double-or-nothing" bet later this year to clear his debt.

Still , Lott says, "This is not over ... you know it's not over."

Voice Of Reason    

TMZ's involvement in the issue is neither here nor there for me. I think it is illogical for people here to defend Aaron Rodger's welching on a bet. Whether you are a Niners fan or a Packers fan or even if Rodgers himself was an old Niners fan, the man made a bet. He lost. He needs to honor his bet. Understandably, he may not be able to do it right away, but tell when he does plan to fulfill it. It can be during a bye-week for Green Bay. Point is the man gave his word. What kind of team leader can he possibly be if he can't honor his word. Enough said.

Wow, these are things that define your character. The more I see of Rogers the more I don't like. He made that bet because he never in a million years expected to lose that game. He truly believes the hype because anytime he loses, he doesn't take responsibility. It's always the refs fault or says dopey things like "we weren't beat - we beat ourselves". Lol. And now besides sore loser & ref-blamer, we can add welcher to his list of attributes.

Sounds to me like TMZ is a little sore in their B-Holes that Rodger called them out on their top-notch reporting.

Huge Ronnie Lott fan here, and lifelong 49'er fan. Aaron Rodgers should say he will wear one when the time is right. Then on Halloween he should dress as a 49'er Zombie. Bet cleared and it would be funny.

I'm sure he'll make good with his bet...and when he does, will TMZ be satisfied? Boyz II Men doesn't seem to be crying about it as much as TMZ is. Like Rodgers said, it was a joke between friends and until B2M actually sues him,..ah .nevermind....back to the drunk celebrities :)
