Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn’t too happy with the way CBS’s 60 Minutes portrayed him this past Sunday night.
Rodgers says he feels like he wasn’t respected.
“To be honest, I was really surprised,” Rodgers said Tuesday on his weekly radio show on 540 ESPN and ESPNWisconsin.com. “It’s always interesting to see how (a piece like that) comes out. I just felt like the editing of the piece could have been done in a way that was maybe a lot more respectful of myself.
“If I’m sensitive about anything through the whole process, it’s that they come to the MACC Fund event in May, which is very, very important to me and even more important considering the two boys that we lost this year to cancer – Jack (Bartosz) and Bo (Johnson).”
Rodgers says they had a chance at showing some really great stuff.
“For them to not even show really any of the content from that night, any of the kids, not say anything about the MACC Fund (or) what they do with kids with cancer, I think that was the thing that was most disappointing about the piece,” Rodgers said. “They had an opportunity to do some great things and really show some things that I’m passionate about, and they didn’t do that.”
I would think that a guy like Rodgers would have gotten a chance to view the final product before it went on air. At least I would have had my agent work that out with CBS.
