Aaron Rodgers told Richard Sherman ‘I hope you get some work this year’

Aaron Rodgers did not throw Richard Sherman’s way a single time during the Green Pay Packers’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Thursday night. Naturally, Sherman was flattered and had to brag about it after the game. Did that lead to an uncomfortable exchange with Rodgers? It doesn’t seem that way.

Although the GIF you see above led to speculation that Rodgers was annoyed with Sherman, Rodgers said Tuesday on his ESPNMilwaukee radio show that he joked around with Sherman after the game.

“I think I said, ‘I hope you get some work this year,'” Rodgers explained. “By that point, I knew that we hadn’t really looked to his side or thrown to his side, and I just said that to him, and I think we kind of laughed about it and went on the way.”

Sherman was definitely busting Rodgers’ balls, but there was no confrontation, as some wanted to put it. If there was, how do you explain this lovely moment?

Sherman had every right to brag, and we know he never misses an opportunity to do so. He completely shut down one side of the field and made Green Bay’s offense look mediocre in the process. Rodgers knows he avoided him intentionally.

Aaron Rodgers girlfriend Olivia Munn was once allegedly hacked

Aaron Rodgers Olivia Munn

Aaron Rodgers girlfriend Olivia Munn can relate to the dozens of people who found their name on the master list for “The Fappening.” For those of you who have been living under a rock, The Fappening is the massive nude photo hacking scandal that recently hit the web involving a number of celebrities and athletes.

Back in March of 2012, an alleged nude photo of Munn began circulating the internet. While the image looked real (you can find it yourself if you want to), the actress vehemently denied the authenticity of the picture with a pretty funny tweet.

Whether the picture was real or fake, Munn can definitely relate to people like Kate Upton at the moment.

Munn and Rodgers have supposedly been dating for several months. If the preseason was any indication, she seems to be good luck for Green Bay’s golden boy.

Does Aaron Rodgers have a new lady in his life? Or, more accurately, has Olivia Munn already moved on to someone new?

US Weekly reports that Rodgers and Munn are dating. This supposedly is coming just two weeks after Munn’s split with actor Joel Kinnaman was announced.

Rodgers and Munn were at a restaurant in Malibu over the weekend and stole kisses from each other throughout the meal, US Weekly reports. The two have been close friends for a while and even presented together at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas last month.

Munn, who is an actress and model, previously dated New York Rangers center Brad Richards. Rodgers has been linked to actress Jessica Szohr numerous times in the past.

Aaron Rodgers rips analysts covering Johnny Manziel pro day

Aaron RodgersLike many other NFL players, coaches, scouts, executives and fans, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took some time out of his day on Thursday to watch Johnny Manziel’s highly-publicized pro day. Manziel, who decided to put a unique spin on his workout by wearing a helmet and shoulder pads, threw for hundreds of scouts and coaches.

The workout was covered by both ESPN and the NFL Network. We don’t know which one Rodgers was watching, but he wasn’t impressed.

ESPN rolled out Todd McShay, Ed Werder and Bill Polian as its team of analysts. NFL Network had Mike Mayock, Paul Burmeister and Kurt Warner. If Rodgers was watching NFL Network, he had to have been saying Warner is the only one with knowledge. Warner has been to three Super Bowls and has a ring. There’s no way Rodgers would group him in with the others.

If Rodgers was watching ESPN, my guess is he was saying Polian is the only one who should be taken seriously. Werder is simply a reporter and McShay is a draft analyst, whereas Polian spent a number of years as a scout, personnel director, general manager, and team president in the NFL.

In any event, we love when Rodgers criticizes people on Twitter. He’s the best.

Aaron Rodgers reportedly dating Jessica Szohr again

Aaron Rodgers recently spent some time bowling with “Gossip Girl” actress Jessica Szohr and Taylor Swift, which prompted speculation that Rodgers and Swift may be dating. When LB heard the latest gossip, he got the feeling something is probably going on between the Green Bay Packers quarterback and Szohr. He may be right.

According to Us Weekly, Rodgers and Szhor have indeed gotten back together.

“They got back together over the holidays. They spent New Years together with a bunch of mutual friends,” a source reportedly told the gossip site. “They broke up because her schedule was crazy for awhile and they just couldn’t stay together in that situation but now they have been spending their free time together and things feel good. They fell right back into it.”

Rodgers and Szohr were supposedly dating back in December of 2010, and they later hung out at an Oscars party. Us Weekly’s source even claimed Swift was giving Szohr relationship advice when the two went to the bathroom during their bowling night.

Last month, enough rumors circulated about Rodgers being gay that he felt the need to adamantly deny them.

Aaron Rodgers hangs out with Taylor Swift, Jessica Szohr

Aaron Rodgers spent some time bowling with Taylor Swift and Jessica Szohr during the week, which has prompted some speculation that he is dating the singer.

Rodgers, Szohr and Swift were bowling at Lucky Strike in Hollywood Monday night at the afterparty following the premiere of new movie “That Awkward Moment,” E! News reported.

E! says Swift was really nice to everyone, including Rodgers, and was hanging out with Szohr. Though Hollywood Life is wondering if something is up with Rodgers and Swift, the more likely story is that something might be going on between Rodgers and Szohr.

Rodgers and Szohr, who is an actress known for her work on “Gossip Girl,” were first linked together back in Dec. 2010. Szohr supposedly attended a Packers game in the quarterback’s box, and the two reportedly hung out at a Bucks game the next night. A few months later, Rodgers hung out with Szohr, Mila Kunis and Stacy Kiebler at an Oscars party.

Yup, if anything’s going on, it might be between Rodgers and Szohr. Though if Rodgers managed to pull off George Costanza’s dream with the two ladies, he’d be reaching idol status.

Aaron Rodgers addresses gay rumor: ‘I’m not gay, I really like women’

Aaron RodgersAaron Rodgers addressed the rumor that he is gay by saying the gossip report is not true and that he really likes women.

Rodgers discussed the rumor on his radio show Tuesday.

“I’m just going to say I’m not gay. I really really like women,” Rodgers said on his radio show on 540 ESPN Milwaukee.

According to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Lori Nickel, a fan asked Rodgers about the positives and negatives of his fame. Rodgers says he got a text message from Justin Timberlake after the Packers’ win over the Bears. That was an example of the positive. Then he brought up the gay rumor as an example of the negative aspect of the fame.

Here’s the audio from the show:

If you’re unaware of the story, about a week ago a website posted a story stating that Rodgers was gay. They said Rodgers’ personal assistant — a man named Kevin Lanflisi — was also Rodgers’ boyfriend. Lanflisi also lived with Rodgers.

The Fame Driven posted a bunch of subliminal tweets and photos from Lanflisi as their evidence. That was all circumstantial evidence at best. But the report said Rodgers was one of the handful of gay athletes who was prepared to come out over the summer as a group before backing out. You may recall that ex-Baltimore Ravens LB Brendon Ayanbadejo mentioned this story in April. The site said Rodgers backing out upset Lanflisi and was part of the reason the two split. That’s where the report went from being circumstantial and speculative to authoritative.

We can confirm that Lanflisi was Rodgers’ assistant, but we have no idea about the extent of their relationship beyond Lanflisi being a valuable member of Rodgers’ team off the field until their recent split..

Though the report was published over a week ago, it gained traction on Monday and was legitimized by Radar Online. Radar Online is major gossip outlet that reported about it, citing the report from The Fame Driven as its source. Rodgers-related search queries about him being gay or having a girlfriend dominated the Internet on Monday, so it’s obvious the rumor spread. And that brought us to this point.

We have no idea about Rodgers’ sexual preference, nor do we really care. What we can tell you is that a woman named Destiny Newton has long been rumored to be Rodgers’ girlfriend. She is from his hometown of Chico. Rodgers has also been linked to actress Jessica Szohr and sports reporter Erin Andrews.
