The Packers quarterback is partnering with State Farm to raise money for those displaced by the wildefires in California. 

That's my quarterback.

I love the fact that in spite of all the rancor regarding Rodgers and McCarthy's performance, that Aaron recognizes that we are all in this together. And when times are distressed, the best response is to pull together to help and support each other. Just a classy guy!

He doing a great thing. JJ Watt did this in Houston. When athletes use the platform outside of sports to create good it shows.

Didn't take long for his little brother to air dirty laundry.

Coming from a D-list celebrity who is only relevant because he used his brother's fame to get on "The Bachelorette".

Agreed. Little brother Jordan choosing the wrong place. Sounds like little bro crying “Look at me! Look at me! I wanna be famous too!”

The Rodgers fam is hardly the only family in America with issues, but to me, Jordan is the d-bag here, not Aaron.

Leave it to Oppy (Mike McCarthy's most consistent ball licker) to give credence and attention to to Jordan Rodger's accusation. Legitimizing it as "dirtly laundry". Oppy = fake news promoter.

If what you say is true and Oppy is purposely posting FAKE NEWS than please people attack/dislike Oppy not me. I simply responded to Oppy's link and was shocked at what I read about Aaron not caring about his own mother. I just assumed it was true.

My apologies to Aaron Rodgers if this is fake news.

So, you're saying that Jordan Rodgers didn't put out a divisive tweet about Aaron?

You don't have to agree with my point of view on topics, but I have a serious problem with you making a claim that I am a "fake news promoter."

I stick my neck out here on a regular basis when people are actually spreading incorrect information, often knowing I'm going to get chastised for it. I take the matter of "facts" seriously, and I try to make sure that when I'm basing a statement on beliefs or gut feelings rather than facts, that it is only an opinion.

Yee Gads, you mean AR might not be "Packer People"?

What in the he!! was TT thinking drafting this guy?

AR now qualifies as another TT draft bust. It doesn't matter how the guy plays football or wins games.

Cooked Mama negates any football prowess this man has displayed.

Unless...

Just maybe...

He is in GB Wisc. for his football, not his philanthropy...

Could it be that football success is not dependent upon any other characteristics except for football prowess?

How could fans of football in general and GBP football in particular have missed this point?

Aaron Rodgers is one of the greatest Packers players in history. It's just shocking to see how he treated his own mother in the wake of these wildfires. I am still in shock. He totally ignored her. She could have been burnt to a crisp and he would have never known. His brother was pissed enough to call him out on it in public. This is getting bad. I wish the writers here would read Oppy's link and write about it tomorrow so we can discuss this further. This is going to get buried and covered up quickly.

Dash, there's a lot of missing information in the drama his little weasel of a brother has ramped up.

Do you know how close the fire was to the Rodgers home? Little bro says the car was packed and she was ready to evacuate. Was she forced to leave? Perhaps Aaron knew more than weasel-boy gave him credit for, and when you're as much of an attention whore as Jordan Rodgers, it must really suck to have your big brother make a donation like this one.

I'll give Aaron the benefit of the doubt, for his work with charities, and his decency. I believe he's a good man.

Great how in the time of social media it's now fair game to attack a public figure while he is trying to raise money for those affected by a natural disaster.
He then ponys up $1 million of his own coin.

Maybe if Rodgers were to refer the fires as fake news and then call those affected crisis actors and then call the death toll "fake" and way less, he could be elected president.

Good work Aaron Rodgers. Your brother is a jelous dipshit.

that so true, Bure.
the problem is that the Trump crowd just cant disdiguise between all her lies, dramas, conspiracy theories and alternative facts. But its all they have….

He did a good thing for Cal and thats all that counts and by the way, the Packers put something on top of it too…..

we have a lot of good people in our country who really care. Dont forget about that in these times. on every level. it goes from practical help from regular people till the "giving pledge". so there is also a lot of good these days, even it is not so loud as the evil.

I grew up in the Sacramento Valley not too far south of Paradise. Those are good folks up there and Paradise used to kick our butts in football back in the 60s. My hats off to AR and anyone else who feels the urge to reach out and help the great people in Paradise. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Jeepers, Albert. Pro Tip: smoke either more of it, or less of it, but stay away from the interwebz after doing so.

Now, brush all those Little Debbie wrappers off your chest, get up off that couch, and say "Hello, World! I'm Albert and I love you!" You're welcome.

Aaron Rodgers slammed by brother Jordan for not calling parents, missing 'first step of compassion' during California wildfiress. If this is Fake News then not only was it on Yahoo news but also Fox News.

This is something amazing that Aaron has done, he is an inspiration for everyone. I was reading an article on https://donorbox.org/nonprofit-blog/find-grants-for-your-nonprofit/ and came across this post. It was informative to come here.
