Aaron Rodgers bet a year’s salary that Ryan Braun was innocent

Aaron Rodgers Ryan BraunWhen Ryan Braun was first implicated for failing a drug test during his MVP season for the Milwaukee Brewers, nobody defended him in public more firmly than Aaron Rodgers. The two are around the same age, from California, and they’re both star athletes for Wisconsin teams. They became very close friends and even opened a restaurant together.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback lashed out against the person who leaked the news of Braun’s failed test, saying there should be more confidentiality. Then, when Braun won his appeal for the positive test, Rodgers celebrated over Twitter and told MLB to eat crow.

At the time, we pointed out that Rodgers’ celebration was premature; winning the appeal never meant that Braun was innocent, nor did it explain how his test had elevated levels of testosterone. That didn’t stop Rodgers from boasting about Braun being exonerated. He even told a Twitter user he’d “put my salary on it next year” that Braun didn’t use PEDs:

Even though Rodgers looks like a dope right now and it’s easy to point and laugh at him because he was wrong, I feel badly. How hurt and disappointed do you think he is to learn that Braun lied to him this whole time and really was cheating?
