Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Says NFL Cares More About Money Than Integrity
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was somewhat mild-mannered in his postgame press conference Monday.
He did allow that the side judge's touchdown call on the Hail Mary was “awful,” but otherwise, he seemed to watch what he said.
Not so on his weekly radio show on ESPN Milwaukee on Tuesday as Rodgers opened up by offering an apology to the fans.
"I think first of all, I've got to do something that the NFL is not going to do and apologize to the fans," Rodgers said. "The product that is on the field is not being complimented by an appropriate set of officials. The games are getting out of control. Like I said in the first week, I'm OK with the replacement refs as long as they don't have a direct impact on the game."
Rodgers then went on to read the NFL's statement on the matter -- in which the league said that though offensive pass interference should have been called on Seahawks' receiver Golden Tate,and though the simultaneous catch could have been reviewed, the result would stand. Rodgers, um, did not agree with the league's stance.
"I call bull on that. Because they say officials. No. There was zero communication between them," Rodgers said. "There was zero communication between the guy who was responsible for the first-and-25 phantom pass-interference foul on Sam Shields and the other referee who was responsible for calling an offsetting personal foul against Greg Jennings for one-hand pushing Brandon Browner who ... just pushed him to the ground."
