Can't Aaron Rodgers Make His Own Decisions?

It never fails to baffle me, the hatred & blame put on ‘female’ significant others when it comes to their athlete partners not pleasing people

As we all know by now, rumors are flying that Green Bay Packers Quarterback, Aaron Rodger is considering moving to the Denver Broncos. And of course, before anyone takes a step back to consider, what if this is what he wants?

Fans & major outlets are blaming his fiancé actress, Shailene Woodley, who people may know from movies like The Divergent Series, The Fault in Our Stars, or her breakout role on the tv series The Secret Life of The American Teenager. 

The chatter started when the Broncos did not select a quarterback at this past week’s draft. It’s said that the Broncos reached out to the Packers Thursday night, which was the first night of the NFL Draft. The Broncos claim their reasoning for not picking a college quarterback was because they want Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater to compete for starting position.

Though a lot of people aren’t buying that. It’s been said that Rodgers has already spoken to some of his teammates about a possible departure. The MVP who threw 48 touchdowns against 5 interceptions in the 2020 season is still in his prime. 

Rodgers has been with the Packers for a while, and his engagement to Woodley is fairly recent. Fans are saying she’s the one pushing him to leave. Sources claim that Woodley has made it clear she has no desire to relocate to Green Bay. 

This all seems like deja vu. Remember when Rodgers was dating Oliva Munn and when he would have a bad game the fans would blame her, even though she wasn’t the one playing!

And it wasn’t like media outlets had evidence of them fighting or struggling in their relationship, which could have ultimately affected his playing skills. People went as far as to blame their sex lives, which is insane because how could anyone know about that? Especially when neither of them has ever spoken on the specific topic. 

The bottom line is fans can be ruthless and so can the media. Both Rodgers & Munn have moved on relationship-wise, but unfortunately for Rodgers, it’s happening again. If I were Rodgers and deep down I knew Woodley had nothing to do with my decision to move on to a different team, I would definitely make it public once the time was right, which is hopefully sooner than later. 

In recent interviews, Munn has expressed how being in a relationship with one of the NFL’s top stars was sometimes toxic and unbearable due to the headlines. The reality is, whenever you see a magazine on a stand, there's always some kind of dramatic statement written on the cover. ‘A-Rod cheats on JLo’, ‘The Kardashians Run Out Of Money’, ‘Shailene Forces Aaron To Leave Packers’.

But when you actually open those magazines and read the stories you realize that most of those statements are just personal opinions or allegations made by unnamed sources. People need to think before they place blame.
