The take on Aaron Rodgers not having kids is one of your worst. Your show has completely fallen off a cliff. Just admit you don't like anyone who differs from your political opinion...Mister "I don't talk politics".

Rodgers has only lost "brand" with you insufferable liberals. Everyone on the other side would want him as their QB. You can have needy Russel Wilson.
