MILWAUKEE — One NFL fan is having a little fun with Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers over his vociferous support of Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun.
It all started when Todd Sutton tweeted last year that Rodgers was delusional over his insistence that Braun had not used performance-enhancing drugs. Rodgers then responded that he would bet a year's salary that his friend was clean, including the hashtags ponyup and exonerated.
Now that Braun has accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension rather than fight Major League Baseball over evidence he used PEDs, Sutton tells USA Today he would settle for a game check.
The 37-year-old flight nurse from Denver tells the newspaper he's not expecting to hear from Rodgers. He also says he still likes the quarterback.
Rodgers, who has more than 1 million Twitter followers, had not posted on his account since Thursday.
