Aaron Rodgers Reportedly Hasn’t Spoken To His Family in 2 Years; Forces Parents to Buy Tickets To See Him Play

Unlike any other season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is coming under fire for his play on the field, with the team currently sitting at 4-5, good enough for third place in the NFC North.

Now his personal life is coming under fire as well.

On Friday, Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne published a long piece about Rodgers that paints him as a guy who has isolated himself from most of his teammates and, more notably, his own family.

His brother, Jordan, who was a contestant on the Bachelor, was the first to talk about just how little Rodgers contacts anybody in the family, even his own parents.

One source, who was close to Rodgers for years but is among the many who have since been cut off by Rodgers entirely, said the quarterback has not spoken to his family since December 2014. Don’t feel too bad, J-Mike. Immediate family members don’t even have his cellphone number. When Mom and Dad sent Christmas presents to the quarterback and his girlfriend that year, the source said, those gifts were mailed back in February. He was set to be the groomsman in the wedding of one of his closest friends, the source said, and texted the day before he couldn’t attend.

He didn’t attend his grandfather’s funeral – the same grandfather he once called before every game.

He fired a business manager he’s known since high school.

The family was told they were no longer welcome in Green Bay. If Dad wants to attend a game now, he buys tickets on StubHub or goes through another player’s family.

Rodgers’ former teammate, tight end Jermichael Finley, also lashed out about Rodgers and his locker room presence:

“In my opinion, he’s a different guy,” Finley said. “I didn’t really know how he showed his leadership. He wasn’t a vocal guy. He really wasn’t a hands-on guy. To tell you the truth, it was all about his game and his stats in my opinion. … He was a guy that kept it all in. He kept grudges close to his chest. If you did something, he never really let it go. He always kept it close to his heart.

“I just don’t think he was a natural-born leader. He wasn’t put on Earth to lead.”

“There’s no explanation for him playing any worse,” Dunne’s source said. “People are trying to figure it out. He’s a f—ing head case. He knows he’s doing the wrong thing, and he’s so arrogant and prideful that he thinks he can separate his personal life from his professional life, even though all of us know that’s impossible. You can’t do that.

No one will care because it's Green Bay Packers QB  Aaron Rogers now if he was say a Chicago Bears QB then the world would want to stone him to dead.

If he was Chicago's qb and won a ring or two, we wouldn't care either.

 Mike Ditka - I'm not a mean football player. You'll notice that i never pick on anyone with a number higher than 30.

If he was the Chicago QB he wouldn't have 2 rings, so the fans would still hate him. Remember it takes a hell of a lot more then a good QB to make a winning team and the Chicago Bears haven't shown there ready to comment to winning.

Rodgers has only one ring. It would take somewhere around 3-4 rings for Chicago to not chew him up and spit him out.

Not going to his Grandfather's funeral? Real classy... Oh well, it's none of my business though.

A girlfriend with a personality that clashes with the rest of the family can cause a lot of problems for all involved.

If she is overly opinionated and pushy I can just imagine the drama! Poor old Aaron, I just feel so much sympathy for him...........

 

No I don't!

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!
