Last year, Aaron Rodgers repeatedly defended Ryan Braun during his suspected involvement with the Biogenesis Lab in Miami and even tweeted to all of the “idiots” and recieved a reply from a Denver man who challenged Rodgers’ confidence in Braun’s claim to
Rodgers made it very clear how sure he was that Braun was indeed telling the truth by tweeting:
Now, over a year later, Braun has admitted to using PEDs, thus losing Rodgers the bet. Todd Sutton, who would receive over 4 million dollars if Rodgers paid up, joins The Mike Heller Show to talk about Rodgers and their bet.
Sutton on tweeting Rodgers:
I was following the thread and saw the whole thing going on. It just seemed like he was being so over the top on this stuff and he got off on a technicality. I wasn’t expecting any response from him, but when I did then it kind of blew up for a little while, but then it went away until Monday night, when the news broke about Braun. Twitter remembered.
Sutton’s reaction to Rodgers' reply:
I was just surprised when I saw that he actually responded to me. It was more of a shock. I’m not big on twitter. That was probably the first time I tweeted at someone that’s a star quarterback. I just showed some of my friends and took a little heat from all of the Packer/Braun fans, but he’s getting it a lot worse than I am now.
Sutton on Rodgers not paying up on a prior bet:
I think it just goes to show character. If you say something, if you’re going to get out there and be that bold about saying something and defending someone. I get that he’s defending his friend, so I’m not going to fault him for that, but now you find out that your friend is lying to you, you got to face the music. Come out and say something at least. Don’t just ignore it and think it’s going to go away.
