Aaron Rodgers

LOSES Bet

Probably Won't Pay Up ... Again

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."

What bet? He said "Ya I would put my salary on it". It's the same as someone saying "I would bet my life on it". Do you really think that means they are betting their life? There was no "I'll bet YOU my next year salary" followed by an acceptance on the other person. He made a comment in general to support what he believed and to show it strongly. Did it turn out he was wrong? Yes. We've all been there before. Get over it and move on. What people should be questioning and angry over is the pathetic punishment Braun got after lying and lying and lying about it. THAT is where the REAL problem lies.

There's nothing wrong with support a friend, but, he just needs stop doing bets he can't pay for.
I really like him, but, it's kinda embarrassing.

If he did in fact make that statement then in reality, he has an obligation to live up to the bet/claim. He better make good on something because if he didn't do something special my like of him is down the tubes and I will do nothing but talk negative about him whenever he he brought up in conversations. To Mr. Rodgers, If you infact did make this bet you owe this person something. Don't be a sore loser, you just fell victim to a liar.

"I'd" = I WOULD. Not "I Will" or "I did".

Betting is illegal anyway.

So glad I'm not a celebrity or famous in any way, this was loose talk that all of the Rodgers haters want to call him on. Get over yourselves! Zero doubt he will do something though, maybe make his friend Braun pay up!
