Video: Aaron Rodgers Calls Out Media Member - 'He's an Absolute Bum'

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers is never shy to share his thoughts and recently he didn't hold back when asked about some controversial comments made by an MVP voting media member. 

The latest news dropped on Wednesday as reports surfaced that Hub Arkush, one of the 50 media members who votes on the NFL's MVP award confirmed he would not be voting for the Packers quarterback, calling Rodgers 'the biggest jerk in the league'.

Rodgers was asked on Wednesday about Arkush's comments and had this to say:

He's a bum. I think he's an absolute bum. You don't know me. I don't know who he is. Nobody knew who he was probably until yesterday's comments. In my opinion, (the NFL) should exclude future votes (from Arkush). His problem isn't with me being a bad guy or the biggest jerk in the league ... His problem is: I'm not vaccinated. If (Arkush) wants to go on a crusade and collude and come up with an extra letter to put on the award just for this season and make it the most valuable vaccinated player, then he should do that. The MVP should be about the most valuable player on the team. A lot of times it goes to the best player on the best team, and we're the best team.

Hard to argue with Rodgers on some of his points, that's for sure. While Arkush's comments has certainly caused a stir around the league and of course with the Packers QB, he wasn't shy to double down:

Has (Rodgers) been the most valuable on the field? Yeah, you could make that argument, but I don't think he is clearly that much more valuable than Jonathan Taylor or Cooper Kupp or maybe even Tom Brady. We are told to pick the guy who we think is most valuable to his team. And I don't think it says anywhere, 'strictly on the field,' although I do think he hurt his team on the field by the way he acted off the field. (The Packers are) gonna get the No. 1 seed anyway, but what if the difference had come down to the (Kansas City) Chiefs game, where he lied about being vaccinated, and they ended up getting beat?

Which side of the fence is your chair? Let us know in the comments.
