Packers QB Aaron Rodgers apologized for his criticism of Tony Kornheiser and Ron Jaworski — among others — earlier this week during a radio interview. Well, Rodgers did not really apologize for the comments so much, but rather, for the way they were delivered (via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel online).
“Unfortunately the message of really in jest talking about that, it was probably inappropriate for that setting and I didn’t mean to offend anybody personally,” Rodgers said today. “I have a lot of respect for those guys and what they do. It’s something that I know is more difficult than it looks at times and I meant no personal disrespect to anybody and I apologize if any of them took offense to what I said. Unfortunately the translation is often lost when it’s on radio, not on TV.”
Comedy, it is all in the delivery. But you want to know where Rodgers really erred here? He named names. Now he has done got himself blacklisted from Hop Sing’s (for you Seinfeld fans).
