Being an insurance company and all. I hope they didn't offer free insurance to a risk taker like Rodgers.

A State Farm spokeswoman would only say the brand's focus this weekend is on a new spot starring Terry Bradshaw.

Not sure about this source.

According to Yahoo!, State Farm has reached a deal worth of between two and three million dollars with Rodgers for his services, including his participation in the company's commercials.

Company management conferences used to be at The American Club in Kohler.
Also, played a nice, big rock club there a few times. Forget the name. It was in the 90s, maybe early naughts.

No wonder he called up Joe Rogan. Aaron is clearly immersed in the self arrogance of Joe Rogan's toxic bro culture.

"Rodgers has had two concussions in his career...In each, he stayed in the game immediately after the injury. The first...happened in 2010...he said his left eye went 'silver metallic,' and he could only see out of his right...Rodgers stayed in the game...A second concussion happened later in 2010...Once again, Rodgers did not leave the game...Rodgers doesn’t remember what happened after his concussion...'I got up and my chinstrap was across my nose...There was a timeout called...I waved off, Oh, I’m good. I’m good, it’s just kind of what’s built into you, I went back out there for a couple plays, and I couldn’t call the plays, and they ended up getting me out of there.'"

Maybe Rodgers has suffered one too many blows to the head?

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- One day after Aaron Rodgers explained why he was unvaccinated and how he tried to gain fully vaccinated status because he received an alternate treatment to provide him immunity from COVID-19, a local health care organization announced the end of their partnership with the Green Bay Packers quarterback.


Emphasis is mine.

But the only "medical" things he should be a spokesperson for are clay, crystals, and herbal supplements.

He has ruined his legacy as far as I'm concerned. He won't be remembered for his football skills. He'll be remembered for his lying and his lack of integrity. People all over the country have lost respect for this guy. No longer any kind of role model. He shot himself in his feet.
