Aaron Rodgers

LOSES Bet

Probably Won't Pay Up ... Again

Breaking Bets

0723_rodgers_braun_gettyAaron Rodgers -- NFL star and habitual bet weaseler-outer -- has LOST another major wager after famously betting his salary that Ryan Braun was PED-free ... but he probably won't pay up, 'cause that would be wayyyyyy out of character.

You may remember back in February, the Green Bay QB went to Twitter to defend his friend Braun against widespread allegations the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder was juicing.

One fan challenged Rodgers, saying, “you really believe he (Braun) didn’t you (sic) PED’s???”
And Rodgers responded: “ya, I’d put my salary next year on it.”

Well, now that Braun's basically copped to doping ... Rodgers is officially a LOSER ... and should have to pay the guy his 2013 salary -- $4.5 MILLION.

But as we all know, Rodgers has a history of not paying off his bets -- starting with the wager he made with Boyz II Men back in 2012 ... that the Pack would beat the 9ers in the season opener.

The Pack lost that game ... and Rodgers was supposed to wear a 49ers jersey. But he chickened out ... cause he's a great big, feathery CHICKEN.

So, just to recap .... Aaron Rodgers is 0 for 2 when it comes to paying up ... or to put it in language he would understand, "cluck cluck cluck cluck."

I'm glad TMZ has a new sports only site, hopefully they can soon stop posting sports news on their main site.

A man that always welches a bet is a man with no honor nor strength of character. Plus, he sucks at betting.

You ever notice that the comments for the sports stories TMZ posts are always below 10...... That should tell you something TMZ, stop covering sports, leave that to the pro's. Nobody is coming to this site for sports info. You guys suck! Stick to Hollyweirdo's like Kim, Chris Brown, Miley, Beiber, and Bines... You know the high school audience!

The first one was a real bet, and he welched, but nobody in their right mind believes that he meant betting his salary as a real bet.

Who cares if he won't pay up. He was being supportive of a friend. Right now Rodgers has to be focused on the 2013 season starting in a month and a half. Not some bet he said in a tweet. Come on TMZ people. Leave the guy who has nothing to do with the whole scandal out of it and let him focus on own life and career.

A real man doesnt make a bet he doesnt plan on paying off. He could have joked about it sure but he should not have made a bet. Just proves he is not a man of his word. He is a hack!

The date of that tweet was in February 2012 way before any evidence surfaced or there were any loophole defenses on Braun's part that his urine test was mishandled. He was trying to back his buddy on something that seemed unfounded at the time to fans other athletes etc. because there was no evidence. Poor choice of words? Sure. But given everything that has come light since, I don't think it is something he would've said recently or even halfway through this process.

And just for the record, even as a Packer fan, he should have sucked it up and put on the jersey.

To avoid future embarrassment, perhaps he should perform his DISCOUNT DOUBLE-CHECK before making a bet.

Laughing at celebrities is fun.    

Stick to the race baiting tmz, you suq at this. It wasn't a bet. I doubt if the last time was a bet either.
