Is Aaron Rodgers really worth chasing?

Hey TMZ, Aaron Rodgers is a football player. He’ll probably be the first to tell you that he’s really not that interesting of a guy, so is it really appropriate for your cameramen to be hounding him as he makes his way around life?

They don’t care – in fact, their Internet posting last night was something like this “Aaron Rodgers … hits the clubs … still a sore loser.”

When the footage of TMZ shouting lame questions to Rodgers about Colin Kaepernick and Aaron Hernandez was released yesterday it became clear to me that maybe TMZ should go looking for Bieber or Lohan.

First of all, Rodgers could care less about Kaepernick and Hernandez. When captured on film on a night out, it looked to me like Rodgers was in for a relaxing evening and wasn’t interested in talking about fellow NFL players who have been captured in the spotlight.

It’s all pretty stupid – as you can see here …


Rodgers, irritated with the paparazzi, tells the cameraman he might get a real job someday, to which the reporter whines something back about being the one who gets him into the magazine. Rodgers, disinterested, gets into the vehicle to leave the area.

But it’s nice to know that at least one in the crowd would be picking Rodgers for his fantasy team.

I think it’s time for Training Camp to start, don’t you?

    The best part of this clip…how Rodgers can go out,enjoy a night club and leave sober,and still use a service to drive him from point A to B.I hope those who,names need not be written here,can see how easy it is to use simple common sense especially when you have so much to lose as we have seen from others lacking this basic quality.

    Aaron Rodgers is one of the biggest celebrities in the country — and one of the most highly paid.

    Of course, paparazzi are going to ask him questions.

    It would be stupid of them not to. It’s their job.

    Brad Pitt doesn’t think he’s interesting, too. Does that mean the paparazzi shouldn’t ask him questions?

    Rodgers could’ve gone to hundreds of other nightclubs.

    But he happened to choose one of the select few that are hounded by paparazzi.

    He knew what he was getting into, and I don’t really think he was bothered at all.

    As for “chasing,” Rodgers came to a paparazzi hang out to be “seen.” They didn’t chase him.

    In fact, TMZ — which is part of Warner Bros — fires any of its paparazzi that chases and/or harrasses celebrities. They get their footage by being stationed at hotspots around L.A. like the nightclub Rodgers went to.

    And they’re just asking sensible questions, not trying to provoke.

    If this was such a non-story, why are you posting about it? And why did ProFootballTalk post about it?

    It’s because Rodgers is indeed a huge celebrity, even in the non-NFL world.
