The last few years, I've felt a flashback to the early 2000s with all the off-season QB drama in Green Bay...this stuff seems to get more attention sometimes than the actual games during the season. As was high expected, Aaron did not show up yesterday for the start of the Packers mandatory mini training camp. The Packers are now within their rights, as negotiated by the players collective bargaining agreement, to fine Rodgers close to $100,000.
According to the New York Post, players were supposed to report at 8:30am and Aaron did not show, as expected. The POST article says "Any monetary penalties handed down to Rodgers won’t come until the official start of training camp, which begins on July 27. If Rodgers continues his boycott throughout the start of training camp, the Packers will be required to fine him $50,000 for each day he misses. The team could also pursue repayment of millions in bonus money."
