Packers' QB Aaron Rodgers loses bet on Braun


Remember this tweet from Aaron Rodgers last year?

It was in defense of Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun, who was accused of doping for extra home run power. The Packers QB said he'd bet his salary that Braun was clean:

Well, it turns out Rodgers has lost this social media wager. Yesterday, Braun was suspended for the rest of the season for taking performance-enhancing drugs.

Kevin Siefert, who writes the ESPN "NFC North Blog" compiled the tweets Rodgers posted when Braun dodged a 50-game suspension in February of 2012.

According to Siefert: "(Rodgers) didn't just rejoice. He crowed, rubbed it in the face of those who were presumably wrong about Braun and, for one of the rare times in his public life, he gloated."

This morning? Time to pay up, Mr. Rodgers.
