Reporter Whines About Aaron Rodgers At Wisconsin Game; QB Fires Back

Dennis Dodd got to see one of the best college basketball games of the year Saturday night, but he couldn’t stop complaining about something that happened after the game.

Actually, complaining might be too kind of a word. Perhaps “whining” works a little better.

Dodd, who is a national college football writer for CBS Sports, was in Los Angeles to cover Wisconsin’s eventual win over Arizona in the Elite Eight. Also in attendance was Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has jumped on the Wisconsin bandwagon in recent years, attending some of the Badgers’ biggest games during their consecutive Final Four runs.

Rodgers was accompanied by celebrity actress girlfriend Olivia Munn, so naturally, a lot of attention was on the power couple. Seemingly every time Wisconsin hit a big shot, the CBS cameras cut to the two. As you might imagine, Rodgers and Munn were given some extra access and were on the court celebrating with the team after its win. This, along with an apparent interview decline from Rodgers, was enough to send Dodd to Twitter to well, whine.

To borrow a line from Rodgers, maybe Dodd should R-E-L-A-X a little bit.

This all got back to Rodgers at some point Saturday night into Sunday morning, and he fired off some tweets that didn’t mention Dodd by name or handle but left no doubt who they were intended for.

You can kind of see where Rodgers is coming from. He’s there to watch the game and cheer on the Badgers, not necessarily grant interviews. As for him being allowed onto the court after the game, those are the kind of opportunities you’re given when you’re one of the best football players on the planet.
