Aaron Rodgers has a different opinion on Bounty Gate than the NFLPA.
This situation with the NFLPA’s stance on Bounty Gate is almost funny. You have the governing body of a group of players fighting to protect the guys that were taking money to strike down a group of players.
It truth, the players union really should step back and let the league handle this because if they are somehow successful end result that will not please large segments of the group they swore to protect.
It’s understood that they protect the interests of the players in even the most laughable cases but this time it’s different.
The only thing that they sincerely are accomplishing is stalling the eventual suspensions of a group of defenders that participated in the hunting process.
In doing such, they maybe extending the suspensions and enlarging the fines just because they are making the NFL office angry. Of course that will never be admitted.
Do the adults in the house remember getting spanked by grandmamma? Do you remember how many extra licks you got for running and wasting her time? The same formula is probably applying here. Hey somebody needs to say it.
So here’s what is happening. As reported in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, players from all over the place are coming out and throwing shots at the players that were involved.
Why is this happening? Because they know the NFLPA is not upholding the will of the people.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was quoted as being the latest guy to speak out and according to the paper he did on the nationally televised talk show Rome.
“When you play this game you realize how violent it is and you also realize as a quarterback that the defense is trying to take shots and either rattle you a little bit to get you out of your rhythm or take you out of the game if they can. However, I think the line is drawn when people knowingly take money for hits that cause injuries to another player. I think that’s when the line gets crossed.”
Add Rodgers to the list of “union” guys that are finding their own way of getting out of the line to support the interests of the guys that are trying to avoid suspensions and fines.
