Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may be a California boy, but it looks like he’s picked up a few social cues during his time in the Midwest. The elder Rodgers brother delivered a perfectly Midwestern-polite answer to a rather unpleasant interview question about his relationship with his brother, Jordan, who is currently a finalist on The Bachelorette. Jordan talks about his brother a lot, which is only odd when you consider how much he talks about them not talking (“Me and Aaron don’t have that much of a relationship”). In fact, JoJo Fletcher’s hopeful paramour has strongly implied that Aaron is somewhat estranged from their entire immediate family. Well, Aaron has had enough of his brother speaking for him, and said in an interview with a local Milwaukee, Wisconsin, news station today that not only does he not watch his little brother play tonsil hockey weekly on national television, but also that “I’ve always found that it’s a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I’m just — I’m not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition.” Jennifer Garner would approve, Aaron.
