Aaron Rodgers: “I feel bad for Johnny Manziel”


The Johnny Manziel reality show has had everyone in the sports world talking. The latest person is Aaron Rodgers who was asked about the media by Peter King but went on to talk about Johnny Manziel:

“I feel bad for Johnny Manziel. I mean, he’s made some decisions … I just think, he’s a 20-year-old kid, and I wish he could just live like a 20-year-old.

“Ten years ago, when I was in college, nobody was following anyone around. I could walk around campus [at Cal] and no one knew who I was. No Twitter. Facebook was just starting. I didn’t even know what my Berkeley.edu address was. I couldn’t get a Facebook page. So that’s how things have changed.

“I don’t do Instagram. I don’t want people to know where I am.”

So it seems to me that Aaron is on the side of the fence that Johnny is just being a 20 year old and living his life. Thats fine if he feels that way, though we know Rodgers judgement hasn’t been the best in the past, see Ryan Braun. However I don’t think the media made Johnny sign those 4500 autographs for money either (allegedly).
