Aaron Rodgers might be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and well honestly he might be one of the most hated players as well.
Maybe it happens to be those evil smiles, or him always complaining to referees or maybe it happens to be that he seems to always blame other players.
Well whatever the reason, there’s another one to add to the list. Aaron Rodgers parents don’t even like their son.
The Rodgers family’s rift became public knowledge in spring 2016 when Jordan (Aaron’s Brother) appeared on the TV series, The Bachelorette.
While on the show, Jordan revealed he was very close with his oldest brother Luke, Aaron is estranged from the rest of the family.
Aaron also didn’t appear in California to meet the family during the hometown dates episode of the reality show.
“It pains both of us like, not to have that relationship [with Aaron] – we miss our brother,” Luke revealed on the show. “I trust that God brings things full circle and that everything would just get back to us being a family.”
It’s just the way he’s chosen to do life,” Jordan explained on the show. “I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother [Luke].”
Ed Rodgers (Dad) confirmed to the Times that the family hasn’t spoken with Aaron since the holiday season of 2014, which means it’s now been over two years.
According to Ed, he’s not sure if things have gotten better with Aaron over the past 24 months.
Ed Rodgers also added that, “Fame can change things.”
And according to The New York Post:
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.
Now after reading that you tell me, do you hate Aaron Rodgers? Because I surely do.
Hopefully we see him on the ground, sacked a bunch of times this weekend in Detroit.
