Shannon Sharpe is not a fan of Aaron Rodgers.
Over the weekend, Rodgers appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast and explained the whole immunized/vaccinated controversy that surrounded him last season.
“I’d been ready the entire time for this question and had thought about how I wanted to answer it,” Rodgers told Rogan. “And I had come to the conclusion I’m gonna say, ‘I’ve been immunized.’ And if there’s a follow-up, then talk about my process. But, (I) thought there’s a possibility that I say ‘I’m immunized,’ maybe they understand what that means, maybe they don’t.”
Rodgers felt that he didn’t mislead the media because they didn’t actually ask follow up questions about whether he was immunized or not.
“Maybe they follow up. They didn’t follow up. So then I go the season (with) them thinking, some of them, that I was vaccinated.”

During the latest edition of Undisputed, Sharpe called Rodgers a liar for misleading the media by saying he was “immunized” while he wasn’t vaccinated. Sharpe also took offense to Rodgers not masking up in front of media members after implying that he was vaccinated.
“He can use all the semantics that he wants to, he lied, and he purposefully lied because he didn’t like the NFL’s policy… if he wanted to use the term immunized, that’s fine, but you knew you were supposed to mask up around other people, in the building, at press conferences, and you didn’t. So you were leading people to think you were immunized, you were also leading people to think that you were vaccinated”
Sharpe went on to call Rodgers a “horrible person” and a prick.
“He’s a top 5 player If he can get another championship, that’s undeniable but as a person, he’s a horrible person, he’s a liar, he’s arrogant, he’s aloof, for a lack of a better word he’s a prick.”
Of course long-term hater Skip Bayless agreed with Sharpe’s assessment.
