Aaron Rodgers details his complaints about ‘Game of Thrones’ ending
Aaron Rodgers appeared as an extra in the penultimate episode of “Game of Thrones,” the popular HBO show that ended its run on Sunday. Being part of the cast, though, did not stop Aaron Rodgers from airing a list of grievances about how the show ended.
On Tuesday, the Green Bay Packers quarterback shared them while also clarifying his appearance.

Rodgers, who is not the first athlete to cameo on the show, confirmed that he was neither the guy who was blown up in an explosion, nor the Lannister archer, as many believed. He mused that the guy who was running away and blown up in a scene was “not an athlete” and seemed insulted that people assumed that was his role in the show.

But he saved his greatest critique for the ending. Rodgers is not a fan of Bran ruling Westeros at the end of the show, and took 90 seconds to go through his view of the ending like he was breaking down an upcoming opponent. He rattled of a laundry list of characters who had a better story than Bran. Rodgers offered his preferred winner: Danaerys Targaryen.
“I loved the opportunity to be in the show, which most probably don’t think I was, but I was there. I love the show, but the writers were also doing Star Wars, so I think they might have been a little busy this last season,” Rodgers said in one final shot.
Sounds like someone does not want to be part of the upcoming comedy series detailing Bran’s reign over Westeros.
