Yikes. Good thing Clay stepped up and took care of this huge fan/cancer patient.

Who knows what was on his mind but I suppose he should get used to fans needing his attention and also some of these negatives along with all the stats-hype and well-deserved media & fan adoration.

Edit: Video of this seems to have been taken down now...

Actually, after seeing the video, WHAT A JERK!

And Matthews couldn't be kinder under the same circumstances. Matthews "I talked to the stewardess about you. THEY MENTIONED YOU." Apparently she asked for two things: a Rodgers autograph on her hat and Matthews to sign her pink #52 jersey. Maybe Rodgers forgot and also missed her as looked at her and then averted his eyes and blew past her. She's difficult to see in the bright pink Packers gear holding out a pink Packers breast cancer hat.

No, he is not obligated to sign autographs or say hello or even smile. Not of which he did for this woman. The look on her face after he passes is totally sad. Rodgers surely does good work with his time and money but this is terribly unfortunate IMO. I'm sure Packers PR will shower her with autographed merch but part of the fun of autographs (for those not selling them on ebay) is the interaction. She was thrilled to have a brief moment with Matthews.

Take a second, get over yourself, and say "hi" to the woman and sign her pink-ribboned Packers hat...good grief. Waiting to hear Packers PR spin this one.

So if Favre (or anybody else) did the same thing it justifies Rodgers doing it? Hardly. Seems that CM wasn't too busy, big, or bothered to make her day.

And that this is somehow a "gotcha" moment is totally ridiculous. He had a beautiful chance to make a cancer patient's day and chose not to. Your "gotcha moment" crap is just a dodge.

Rodgers has a long way to go to catch up with Brett in the "Jerry Springer trailer trash" department. At the worst, Aaron is guilty of momentary thoughtlessness in this case. Keep scrounging.
Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 16, 2011 10:20PM
This has nothing to do with Favre, which must be making you crazy! A momentary lapse means he turns around and gives this woman his autograph. He saw her and blew past. It wasn't a lapse, it was obviously intentional.
Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 16, 2011 10:49PM
Please. Everyone here knows you've had a bug up your arse about Rodgers since the day he replaced Brett. And now that you've been completely proven wrong about Rodgers' playing ability, you're reduced to grasping at straws like this. Pathetic and sad.

I may be pathetic and sad but I'm certainly not pathetic and sad enough to intentionally avoid a woman who is basically a walking billboard that says, "I am a HUGE Packers fan, I have cancer, please please sign my hat!"

He's a good QB, though. I certainly don't question that.

You gathered all that from a 16 second video that only shows Rodgers for 3 seconds? Like I said below, Rodgers really may be a goat here. I just don't see enough evidence to condemn him.

So Rodgers couldn't have known that this woman, clad in all pink ribboned Packer gear with a television camera and photographers near her, and who reached out with a Packers pink breast cancer awareness ribbon on it (politely) could have seen her while walking from the jetway, then the gate, and finally into the terminal. I mean, everybody knows that all emaciated, hairless fans wearing pink-ribboned Packers gear has a media entourage. Sorry, my bad. eye rolling smiley

Apparently Matthews figured it out?

Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 17, 2011 01:23AM
Hey, I watched the video and I could see myself easily missing those clues. She wasn't "emaciated" and if not for all the pink wouldn't look much different than any other citizen walking thru the airport. I can't stress enough that i'm not siding with Rodgers. I just think you are being hasty and overly judgemental without having all of the facts.

I will again concede that it is perfectly possible Rodgers dogged this woman. I just don't think the short video does anything to suggest that is the case. You on the other hand seem to have some kind of special insight. Believe what you want, but for someone who relies on factual evidence to the degree you claim to in these forums I think your bias against Rodgers is showing a little here. This isn't an eye of the beholder issue. It's a story with a short video of Rodgers and another man walking past a woman who doesn't even verbally announce her presence. She just stands there holding a hat and then rather embarrassedly steps back when she realizes Rodgers isn't stopping. He's either a dick head or a preoccupied celebrity. I'm not convinced of one over the other.

Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 17, 2011 01:28AM
Fair enough. I see him make eye contact as she stands in front of him a bit and he just keeps on truckin' with a bit of a smirk on his face. Just because he looks like a complete douche in that video doesn't mean he is -- I'm aware of that. But what I see in the video is pretty sad IMO.
Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 19, 2011 09:33AM
Its funny how slank can make such severe judgements of a person from a 16 second video and a news story, yet he accused everyone of not having enough facts or content to make any assumptions about Favre during the TT/Favre war or the Jen Sterger debacle. I specifically remember him accusing people of not having the facts, when everyone knows both stories last much much longer than this one has and had much more coverage.

No it doesn't. But Favre has done this while camera's were present, and it was a non issue.

It is just sleazy media looking for a story out of the trash can. BTW Clearly the woman had nothing against Rodgers and is still trying to get his signature.



I am proud of who I am. To those who oppose, get used to it.

BTW...I do not hold this against Rodgers simply because NFL players are human. I know you and others here do not feel that way though. I mean...no way in hell can a Packer be anything but saints right? (But it does beg the question....is Rodgers STILL "Packer People"...lol)

Apparently the woman had just been to a radiation treatment before going to the airport. Damn. That's fan loyalty!!! The classy move would have been Rodgers autographing her hat and then asking for HER autograph.

I finally found it on You Tube, and it is unfortunate. I wonder if the interview is conducted before or after she got passed by? I can't really tell. Hopefully after because she still sounds pretty upbeat.

I think Rodgers is a great guy, but man what a Brain Cramp in that moment. That's the only way I can explain it. I've got to believe that by now he deeply regrets it, and will rectify it, but I think he does owe her an apology, I hope he makes it in person. But, no doubt he can't miss that type of opportunity.
Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 16, 2011 09:00PM
I have no doubt he and the organization will bend over backwards to make it up to her but I think it's a pretty ugly moment for Rodgers. Especially because Matthews handles it with such kindness and humility. A gentleman.

The damage for AR is that he didn't stop THE FIRST TIME to take care of WHATEVER this woman wanted.

But I shouldn't judge him. I didn't have a cancer patient asking me for my autograph. Maybe it's a total pain in the ass.

I was hesitant to even comment because I don't want to come off biased or make excuses. For all I know Rodgers was an ass in this situation, but from that 16 second video i'm not ready to condemn him.

I didn't see anything to suggest he purposely shunned a cancer patient. He did walk right past her, but was walking with another person and appeared to be conversating with him. I am sure he saw her, and he probably knew she was hoping to talk and get an autograph. That's going to happen no matter where he goes 7 days a week. Unless more facts are coming out that i'm not aware of though I think Rodgers could have simply been distracted, tired and ready go home. I seriously doubt he's the cold hearted SOB that this story is making him out to be.

Like I said, i'm not making excuses for him, maybe he really is a douche bag. I just think there are 2 possible scenarios here.

Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 17, 2011 12:54AM
No doubt that there are at least two stories.

I just can't see Rodgers being so into his iPod, his escort, or simply just so distracted that he could miss an emaciated hairless woman in all-pink Packers gear making eye contact with him and pushing a Packers pink ribbon hat his way...and if he missed that, how does he miss the television crew and photographers? As noted below...Matthews certainly didn't.
Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 16, 2011 11:31PM
Sorry if this sounds cold hearted, but what, 1/3 of all people get cancer, so an NFL player must stop and sign an autograph for 1/3 of all people or he is a terrible person? Then really, what makes cancer such a terrible illness, it has pretty good survival rates now and heart disease, liver issues, etc. are more deadly, he needs to stop for every single one of those people as well? Then, what gives those people a greater right to these things, what makes them more valuable people because they have an illness?

Even then, Rodgers did not look at her, what is to say he even saw/noticed her as he was having a discussion with someone else? Even then, he would have noticed the sheer amount of pink, not her hair, as that is primarily what I noticed. To me, I don't draw any correlation between seeing someone wearing pink and knowing they have cancer. I highly doubt all the people wearing those pink Packer jerseys or hats have cancer.

Are the other 50+ Packer players who didn't stop to give her an autograph also bad people?

Note: She was specifically holding out a Clay Matthews jersey, if Rodgers did notice, why would he stop to sign a Clay Matthews jersey?

Re: Rodgers blows off cancer patient?
January 17, 2011 12:43AM
And how does the survival rate of breast cancer patients matter in this situation? Did Aaron Rodgers size up this woman's odds of living and decided that she was well enough to get his autograph another time?

Look, there is a television camera trained on them, photographers, and a woman inches away from him holding out a Packers breast cancer ribbon hat to sign. I guess it was easy to miss or ignore when listening to an iPod and...walking. Near his escort.

He definitely looked at her and intentionally moved away from her.

My question is why would the flight attendant know of this cancer patient waiting at the gate for Rodgers and Matthews to sign her Packers hat and Packers jersey? Suppose the gate attendant called ahead? Then why were the cameras and photographers there for this photo op gone bad? Who arranges photo ops such as this (because Matthews was certainly well-briefed as he walked off the plane). Packers PR would be my guess but maybe you have a theory (seriously, I'm not being snarky)...?

If Rodgers knew about this ahead of time as Matthews did and snubbed her...pure scum (though good Qcool smiley. If he didn't know but he certainly did look at her (and look at her -- she's emaciated, her hair is gone, and she's outfitted from head to toe in Packers breast cancer pink gear!) he might have at least slowed to see what was up with this woman in Packers breast cancer pink asking for his autograph while surrounded by media. Kind of a tip-off that maybe this isn't just your common, pesky, everyday cancer patient seeking an autograph. To hear it around the Wire, these cancer patients who are HUGE fans are just a pain in the ass and deserve what they get or don't get.

That is exactly what I'm wondering, why does the fact she is a breast cancer patient matter? That is what everyone is upset about, but why does it matter? if he is required to give an autograph to every single cancer patient, then where do you draw the line from there? These people have lives as well, and you do not have a right to invade it just because you have cancer.

The television cameras is aimed at the players coming in. You really think that is something interesting or should be some sort of a surprise? They're returning from a playoff game they won, of course there are going to be news cameras there.

He did not move his head to her direction, she was never in the focus of his vision. He had had a long day and was looking to head home and she happened to be on his way on that path. He moved away from his teammates in order to get home as well, does that mean he isn't a team player?

Well, let's see. She comes in with a Clay Matthews jersey and the flight attendant specifically tells Clay Matthews about it. Maybe this WAS a planned photo opp, but for Matthews, which went well for him, and that Rodgers was not aware his signature was also needed and did not want to steal the show from Matthews. Had Rodgers signed the autograph of a lady who had a Matthews jersey and specifically said she wanted Matthews' autograph we'd be complaining about how Rodgers is so selfish and self centered to think that she'd also want his autograph when she was obviously there for Clay Matthews. Look how when Rodger's walks by she just has her hat and is standing to the side, no pen evident, but when Matthews comes in she is front and center with pen and jersey outstretched. Those are completely different setups, which make me think, combined with the above information, this was a photo opp for Matthews and she was just trying to get Rodgers' signature on top of it.

If he was aware of the full situation, knew her story and that she wanted his autograph I agree, it was a terrible thing to do, but we have absolutely no indication that was the case, none. You really think someone is going to stop and take notice of every fan who is slightly different, he'd never get through his day. Yes, YOU would notice, but when you get thousands of people seeking your attention each and every day, with a large portion of the women wearing the pink jerseys because they're popular, it is different. And surrounded by media?? Having one camera there focused on the team coming off the plane, and not her is not surrounded by media. The media that was there was exactly what was expected. And asking for his autograph, when did she ask for his autograph? She didn't say anything, she didn't have a sign. I did not know that simply holding a Packer hat near a Packer player was a request for an autograph.

I HATE this type of thing when people jump to conclusions about things, making assumptions and condemning a player with no real knowledge of the situation. I defended Michael Vick as well until more information about his actual involvement came out. Why are people so quick to place blame, insecurities about their own actions?

Wow, so you ask a question specifically asking for speculation, as no one knows the facts, and get upset that I speculated, but you're allowed to speculate?

You asked, "My question is why would the flight attendant know of this cancer patient waiting at the gate for Rodgers and Matthews to sign her Packers hat and Packers jersey?" You were asking how this was possible, none of us here on this forum know the specific answer, we weren't there, we weren't part of the planning, so you're asking a speculative question. I gave you one possible reason, as a possibility, not stating it was fact, but backing up my speculation with facts.

How exactly am I supposed to answer the question? "We don't know, so we should simply assume Rodgers is a scumbag even though he has given no other indication of that fact previously."

Since speculation is the order of the day, I will indulge. Perhaps the explanation is simple. A-Rod already signed for the person. Some people hang out at AS Airport every time the Packer players come through. It could be that A-Rod signed on an earlier occasion. I mean, the guy has a pretty good track record of being in tune with fans and being charitable. Either way, someone will look bad here.

You've nailed it on the head. According to a report by Jason Wilde on Green and Gold today, this woman is at the airport every week (verified by multiple players) and had, in fact, signed something for this particular woman the week before and had a short conversation with her. Aaron Rodgers, also according to Wilde, does a ton of stuff with the MAC fund, both in public and behind the scenes.
The video fails to tell the whole story and indeed does make Rodgers look bad, but way too many people are jumping on the "Aaron Rodgers is a jerk" bandwagon without knowing the facts.

What a joke....that some in here feel the need to find or create dirt during a special time. From what I gather from reading this pathetic thread, there is some "video" on the always reputable and never tainted or altered or editied video on the trustworhty site of You Tube showing Rodgers shunning an autograph? Im sure Rodgers purposely and with bad intentions screwed over a kid. Yeah...thats the take I have on Rodgers from all the interviews and personal stories that I have read about him....total jerk. I also get ALL my trustworthy news in the National Enquier. How pathetic this is to even mention it without finding out THE WHOLE TRUTH. I think these last 48 hours has shown that there are people who just can't handle prosperity. It's a human condition that many have. Some people just would rather be happy being negitive and miserable and have a difficult time adjusting to when a situation calls for happiness and celebration. ....Like the character from Bronx Tale, Sonny, says...."whadda ya gonna do"?

As many have already pointed out, there really was nothing to this story. Here's a link to an interview with the woman about how it was completely blown out of proportion:

[www.wisn.com]

I think we need to cut slank some slack here, this has been an absolutely brutal year for him and his hero: guy had his career worst year and absolutely embarassed his family by sending those pics to Sterger. Not only that but he's currently being sued by multiple massage therapists. It no secret that he resents Rodgers and I wasn't the least bit surprised that he brought this story to the board. Guess he should have waited and done his homework before attempting to paint Rodgers in a negative light, now he's the one who looks bad. . .

Nice try though?
