NOTE: Some people are claiming to still be able to see this tweet in Rodgers’ timeline. I am following both Rodgers and Sutton and still cannot see it in his timeline and have checked multiple times with multiple different tools. I was able to dig up the tweet from Sutton’s timeline attached to another Tweet of his. I’m not exactly clear at this moment whether or not the Tweet has been deleted, all I know is that I cannot find it anywhere in Rodgers’ timeline.
The first image shows the Tweet in question. The second image shows Rodgers’ timeline now, after he deleted that Tweet.
Last year when Ryan Braun went through his “other” PED drama his friend Aaron Rodgers took to Twitter to post a string of hateful Tweets after Braun’s “exoneration” Saying things like “MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man”. Rodgers responded with vitriol to the people saying that Braun only got off on a technicality saying, “All u idiots talking about technicality open up for some crow too.”
How classy is that? So I guess it’s not the fans who are the idiots, huh Aaron? And I hope they saved some crow for you and your lying, cheating friend Ryan Braun.
But that’s not even the classiest part. Rodgers was asked this question by Twitter user Todd Sutton.

Rodgers responded, “ya I’d put my salary next year on it”. Apparently, since that was the only Tweet he deleted, Rodgers doesn’t care that he called people idiots who were right all along about Braun but he does care that people will see that he’s not a man of his word.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Aaron Rodgers seems like a likable guy but if you’re going to put yourself out there and talk shit about something you obviously know nothing about then you should pay up. Be a man of your word and donate your 2013 salary to charity, I’m sure there are quite a few people who could use it more than you.
