    Thumbs down Aaron Rodgers, who ‘put my salary on’ Ryan Braun being clean, probably regrets that

    Aaron Rodgers was so sure his buddy on the Milwaukee Brewers, Ryan Braun, didn't use performance-enhancing drugs, that he told a skeptical Twitter follower last February that he would put his money where his mouth was.

    Todd Sutton @toddsutton

    @AaronRodgers12 you really believe he didn't you PED's???? #delusional

    Well, Braun has been suspended by Major League Baseball for the rest of the season after dropping an appeal, and somewhere Todd Sutton is wondering how he can collect the Green Bay Packers quarterback's $4.5 million base salary for this year.

    When Braun had a positive test for PEDs overturned on appeal, Rodgers publicly defended him then as well.

    MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with. Truth will set u free #exonerated

    Might be a bit awkward the next time the two Wisconsin sports stars talk.

    Rodgers probably should be regretting being so defensive of Braun, now that Braun has dropped his appeal and said he made "some mistakes" and is willing to accept the consequences. Rodgers once backed out of a jersey bet with the R&B group Boyz II Men, and we really don't figure he will "pony up" on his Braun bet either.

    Will he back out of another bet? The suspense is killing me.

    What do you guys think? I'm guessing a decent charitable donation.

    seriously though, you talk down to the fans and then you turn out to be the one who's completely wrong. good stuff.

    I didn't really follow it. But did he talk down to fans? I thought he addressed the MLB and the media?

    Rodgers believed a very good friend and is now in a tough place. He shouldn't have written it though

    he called people who were saying braun only got off on a technicality "idiots"

    point is, he could have supported braun without being so arrogant and snobby about it. now he is the one (as he would say) "eating crow"

    I don't blame him for supporting braun at thetime. I think any friend would do the same for their good friend. just the way he did it was wrong IMO, by taunting MLB/ESPN/anyone who thought braun was guilty.

    Yeah, that was too much. Most of the time I like his cockiness and dry sense of humor like the time he called out the media because of the voluntary offseason workouts during the lockout. But that wasn't necessary.

    yeah he made a mistake, not the end of the world. im sure he realizes it now. stil the best qb in the nfl.

    I realize emotion can take over when it's a close friend though. Like I said, i'd probably do the same if it was my close friend.

    Me too. I'm interested in how he will respond now. If I'm not mistaken, Braun did test positive again. The MLB convicted him because of the testimony of PED producer.

    Im sure he will do nothing at all but it would be nice if he had a charitable donation of some amount, obviously not his whole or even most of his salary, in the fans name towards a good cause.

    However it will probably just be brushed under the rug as a comment that was made in the heat of the moment and that will be the end of it.

    obviously ridiculous to expect him to give up his whole salary....having said that stop making bets you have no intention on following through with.

    It's not really a bet. It's just rhetoric.

    He should donate some $$$ to a charity, just for his name's sake.

    Lol Rodgers is a moron.

    He should give up his damn salary lol.

    Everyone knew Braun was taking PEDs and that he just found a loophole in the system.

    Rodgers is a great Qb, not such a smart person apparently.

    Talking down to a fan and being wrong...and then looking like a total D-bag. LOL
