Rodgers Finally Speaks Out on Braun

Green Bay Packers camp opened today, but the media was not interested in what quarterback Aaron Rodgers had to say about the upcoming season.

They want to know what happened with Ryan Braun, and Rodgers did not hold back.

Rodgers said he was very disappointed that his friend lied to him and made him look like a fool.

"I was shocked, I really was, just like many of you were," Rodgers."I was backing up a friend. He looked me in the eye on multiple occasions and repeatedly denied these allegations and said they were not true."

"So, it is disappointing, not only for myself as a friend, but for obviously Wisconsin sports fans, Brewer fans, real baseball fans. It doesn't feel great being lied to like that, and I'm disappointed in the way it all went down."

I'm sure it didn't feel great at all, Aaron. But what I didn't realize -- and I'm sure most fans didn't -- is that this friendship goes beyond just hanging out. These two are actual partners in a business, which Rodgers admitted may be up in the air now.

"That's yet to be determined," Rodgers said. "As far as the business goes, right now I'm focused on football, and I have people who can help me with those issues."

Although Rodgers did talk about forgiving Braun for lying, it doesn't sound like he'd be forgetting anytime soon now does it?

And if I were Aaron Rodgers, I wouldn't trust Braun, either.
