Who is Shailene Woodley engaged to?

Does Aaron Rodgers own the bucks?

Every year in the NFL, fan bases in each city have to deal with personnel situations: Ezekiel Elliott, Jamal Adams, Julio Jones — the list goes on and on. Diehards who spend their hard-earned money on tickets and jerseys are left to choose sides between billionaire owners and millionaire athletes.

Again, Green Bay is unique. Those same diehards are the owners. The shareholders. It is a special situation unlike anything else in professional sports. Because of this, nothing is ever more important than the colors. No one is bigger than the logo.

If any other fanbase had gone through the Brett Favre situation, you would’ve seen a war of opinions and takes. That’s not to say that there weren’t fans on Favre‘s side, but that number was low compared to other teams. The moment there was an issue, you had grown men all over the state crossing names off the backs of jerseys and heading to the local courthouse to change their son’s name from Brett to Aaron. It was clear that not even Brett Favre was bigger than the Packers.

Here we are again years later. The man who had to deal with the wake of the Favre drama, and did so with aplomb, is disgruntled. And although he has publicly stated his love for the fans, his teammates, and the coaches — saving his criticism solely for management‘s culture — a vast majority of the fanbase is ready to move on from him.

Spend two minutes on Twitter or a Packers message board, and you quickly understand that most fans are ready to be done with him. You find stories of local bar owners who put up a new type of beer called Crybaby No. 12. It’s insanity.

All of this backlash is because he had a concern about the organization’s direction and choices. Concern about their ability to build a team that can win a Super Bowl. That’s all he wants, to be a champion.

Tom Brady recently made some new comments that have nothing to do with Green Bay but should provide insight on the Rogers situation for those who still need it.

Brady famously made the motherf*cker comment about a team who refused to consider him as an option last offseason. Although he hasn’t revealed who that team is, he appeared on SiriusXM with Jim Gray and elaborated:

“There’s private things for me that are going to remain motivational for me,” Brady said to Gray. “They know who they are, it’s fine. Everyone has a choice to choose. I think what you realize is, there’s not as many smart people as you think. That’s just the reality. I think it’d be a no-brainer if you said, ‘Hey, you’ve got a chance to get Wayne Gretzky on your team, or you got a chance to have Michael Jordan on your team.’ . . . ‘Oh, we don’t need him, no thanks. We’re good.’

“In my mind, I’m kind of thinking, ‘OK, let me go show those teams what they’re missing.’ At the same time, let me go prove to the team that did bet on me, and the team that really showed they really wanted me, and committed to me, that I’m not going to let them down.”

Just take a second and go back and reread that. Look at how he thinks about himself. He comes off like such a jackass. He thinks he’s Gretzky and Jordan. And he is, but the fact that he’s referring to himself in that way it’s pretty douchey. But you get it. He gets to come off that way. He needs to come off that way. He needs to handle things the way he needs to handle things to be great, and he needs his organization to understand that. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got that. The team that passed on him didn’t.

That’s all Aaron Rodgers needs. So why are Packer fans so quick to assume he is betraying us. Maybe he’s actually trying to help us. Maybe he’s actually right. Green Bay is a unique place, but maybe just maybe if we stopped, listened, and as a fan base rallied behind Rodgers, he could help us make it an even more unique place.

Because if we don’t, and three years from now he’s won a couple of titles somewhere else, Love is a bust, and he’s on talk radio calling Mark Murphy an expletive, Green Bay might start to lose some of that unique shine.

Edit: This piece was written and published before the contract news this morning. But it’s fun and I stand by it. Enjoy. As the slow drag to […]

Shailene Woodley On the 'Debilitating' Health Condition That Left Her 'Spun Out'

Yahoo Lifestyle 21 July, 2021 - 09:10pm

At the age of 29, Shailene Woodley is already considered a Hollywood heavyweight, having appeared in several critically acclaimed projects — including HBO's star-studded Big Little Lies — and will soon lead the Netflix drama, The Last Letter from Your Lover. But Woodley recently revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that as her star continued to rise, she had to take a step back from acting while grappling with a "pretty debilitating" health condition.

"I said no to a lot of projects, not because I wanted to but because I physically couldn't participate in them. And I definitely suffered a lot more than I had to because I didn't take care of myself," recalled Woodley. "The self-inflicted pressure of not wanting to be helped or taken care of created more physical unrest throughout those years."

Woodley, who, in April 2020, revealed to The New York Times that she was "very, very sick in [her] early 20s" while shooting the Divergent films, is now "on the tail end" of her health struggles. But, as she told The Hollywood Reporter in July 2021, the experiences will forever be part of her story.

"It's an interesting thing, going through something so physically dominating while also having so many people pay attention to the choices you make, the things you say, what you do, what you look like," explained Woodley, who did not specify the health condition she struggled with publicly, who hasn't shared the specifics of her illness with the public. "It spun me out for a while. You feel so incredibly isolated and alone. Unless someone can see that you have a broken arm or a broken leg, it's really difficult for people to relate to the pain that you're experiencing when it's a silent, quiet and invisible pain." (Related: I'm a Fitness Influencer with an Invisible Illness That Causes Me to Gain Weight).

Among the lessons that Woodley learned at the time: ignoring the often vicious chatter in the world around her.

"It made me learn the incredibly difficult life task of not caring what people think about you very quickly," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "The more I paid attention to the noise that was surrounding me, the longer it was taking my body and my mind to heal because I wasn't focused on myself, I was focused on an image of myself via the lens of everyone around us."

Fast forward to today and Woodley seems content with both her professional and personal life. Currently engaged to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whom she met during the COVID-19 pandemic, the actress previously told Shape how the couple "jumped headfirst" into their relationship, moving in together immediately.

"I was by myself with my dog and didn't see anyone for three months," she said of her living situation prior to Rodgers. "It forced me to be still and quiet."

Despite the unique circumstances in the early stages of their relationship, Woodley believes her path was always destined to cross that of Rodgers. "I have the perspective that I would have met Aaron in any context, any space in time, because I feel we were meant to be together," Woodley shared with Shape in June 2021.

Although the couple has enjoyed their blissful engagement — trips to Disney World and Hawaii included — Woodley recently told Entertainment Tonight that she and her 37-year-old fiancé are in no rush to wed. So, what is she to do in the meantime? Given Woodley's conversation

Odds are Woodley will continue to enjoy some quality time with Rodgers, all the while taking care of herself — something she does by prioritizing sleep, practicing more positive self-talk, and using astrology to help encourage "more self-compassion."

Woodley said she had "never felt uncomfortable doing intimate scenes" because she is vocal with both the director and her costars on set.

"We didn’t do [the announcement] for months and months after we had become engaged," the actress said.

While discussing the secret engagement, Woodley further explained that she has often shied away from the spotlight, and much of her early twenties were spent saying \"no\" to various acting opportunities. “The...

The actress said they declined to speak about the engagement after confirming the news so that they could continue to "live in our little bubble."

Shailene Just Hinted Aaron Was ‘Disrespected’ by the Packers After He Turned Down His Contract

Shailene Woodley may have just revealed the real reason why Aaron Rodgers turned down his Packers contract—and no, it isn’t because of her. Instead, it sounds like Rodgers is feeling “dismissed” and “disrespected” as the team’s star quarterback.

The NFL star, 37, made headlines on Tuesday, July 20, after he declined an extension contract from the Green Bay Packers. According to ESPN, the five-year deal would have made him the highest-paid quarterback—and player overall—in the sport. Football fans and commentators took to social media in droves following the report, with many trying to make sense of Rodgers’ decision. Among them was sports personality and host of ESPN’s First Take, Stephan A. Smith, who described his “disgust” with “all of these NFL aficionados” that “don’t understand” Rodgers’ frustrations during a segment of the show on Tuesday.

In the clip, which later landed on Twitter, Smith defended Rodgers’ choice. “This is proof of what I’ve been talking about for months. It’s not about football. It’s not just about the money,” he said. “This is about the way the Green Bay Packers have treated their star player. They have disregarded him, they have dismissed him, they have minimized him, they’ve disrespected him. And he said, ‘Bump y’all, enough is enough.’”

Woodley, for her part, retweeted the clip with no further commentary—but it doesn’t seem like any was needed, as fans immediately understood her retweet as a hint that she and her fiancé agree with Smith. The Golden Globe-nominated actress, 29, has previously been the subject of blame in the past when fans first caught wind of Rodgers’ desire to leave the team. News of his potential exit first broke in May, when ESPN senior NFL analyst Adam Schefter claimed on Twitter that Rodgers was “disgruntled” with his team.

“Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team, league and team sources told ESPN on Thursday,” Schefter’s tweet read at the time.

Just weeks after Schefter’s report broke, Rodgers seemed to make his priorities clear when he skipped out on the start of the Packers’ off-season training program to soak up the sun with his fiancée in Hawaii instead. “Aaron Rodgers was NOT among the group of players who reported to Lambeau Field on Monday for the start of organized team activities,” ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky confirmed in late May.

But even if some fans aren’t happy about Rodgers’ decisions, Woodley’s response makes it pretty clear that the choice is still all his.
