Aaron Rodgers was lied to by Ryan Braun and the Green Bay Packers quarterback isn't happy about it. Speaking publicly about Braun's 65-game suspension from Major League Baseball for the first time Friday afternoon Rodgers was forthright with his feelings about the person he had considered a good friend. "I was shocked I really was just like I know many of you were" Rodgers said in the Packers locker room. "I was backing up a friend who looked at me in the eye on multiple occasions and repeatedly denied these allegations said they weren't true. It's disappointing not only for myself as a friend but obviously for Wisconsin sports fans Brewers fans Major League Baseball fans. "It doesn't feel great being lied to like that and I'm disappointed about the way it all went down." Rodgers added that he has spoken with Braun since the suspension was issued by MLB but that doesn't necessarily mean that the two of them are friends anymore. "I was disappointed by the way it went down" Rodgers said when directly asked about his friendship with Braun. "I trusted him and that's the thing that probably hurts the most." Rodgers and Braun also have a business relationship sharing ownership in Milwaukee-area restaurants called 8 Twelve MVP Bar and Grill.
