Aaron Rodgers

Ryan Braun (cluck) Lied

To My (cluck) Face! (cluck)

0726-aaron-rodgers-ryan-braun-gettyAaron Rodgers -- GB Packers quarterback and chronic bet reneger -- is blaming disgraced MLB player Ryan Braun for letting his mouth write a check his ass couldn't cash.

As you know by now ... back in February, Rodgers aggressively defended his friend Ryan Braun against allegations the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder was using PEDS ... and was so confident, he "bet" his 2013 NFL salary with a random person on Twitter.

Obviously, Rodgers was wrong and lost the bet (he'll never pay up, BTW) -- and now he's throwing Braun under the bus ... telling reporters he was merely "backing up a friend."

Rodgers says he was "shocked" when Braun admitted to cheating -- saying, "[Braun] looked me in the eye ... it didn't feel great being lied to like that."

You know what else doesn't feel great, Aaron? When you enter into a wager with someone and then DON'T PAY UP!!!!

he should probably stop betting? the worst thing you can do nowadays is side with someone who has allegations under their belt.., especially if you're a fellow celeb. just stop talking Aaron and play football. lol

For the last time, there is no bet if the other person is not putting up their money!!! Was this guy going to pay Aaron something if he lost? No! Move the fu*k on.

not a packer fan or a rogers fan....but i believe he said "i'd be my pay on it".....I don't really feel this qualifies as making an official bet....

Baseball. Like the N.F.L. (National Felon League), it sure has its share of criminals. I have no time for a sport that gave us sleazebags like Jose Canseco. On a side note, you'd think that with all the money he's earned, Pete Rose could have afforded a haircut that didn't make him look like Moe Howard from The Three Stooges.

He didn't technically bet anyway. He said he "would" bet his salary. No one agreed on anything to actually bet

Aaron Rodgers didn't throw anyone under the bus. Ryan Braun ran face-first into the bus, at full speed. Braun did this to himself. Rodgers' bet about Braun was stupid, but Rodgers has every right to be mad and truthful about the way he was bald-faced lied to by Braun.

Memo to TMZ: Aaron Rodgers never bet his salary his reply was...“ya, I’d put my salary next year on it.”....which is a far cry from entering into a wager with someone!

Let's get real. Rodgers never said - "I bet you" to the other tweeter -- some things get so blown out of proportion. I'm sure most people have at one time or another used the same phrase - I bet you $20 I can beat you to the corner :)

Omg TMZ. Get over it. So AR didn't wear a stupid jersey or whatever that old bet was...you act like you are personally hurt over it. Lame a$$es.

I'm sorry, but wasn't the original bet with Boyz II Men, not TMZ?? If they aren't complaining about it, why is TMZ still all worked up? They remind me of the nerdy kid on the playground trying to act like they belong to the popular group when they really just look pathetic.
