HBO’s Game of Thrones series gained a cult following in the last decade due to its gritty storyline and captivating characters. The final season hit the screens in April 2019. There was great hype surrounding the series finale for which loyal fans had to wait for more than a year. One of them was Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
The two-time NFL MVP is a self-proclaimed GOT fan. But even he did not like how the makers concluded the season, which was what most GOT fans felt.
A year later, Aaron Rodgers continues to mourn the series finale of GOT

Just like many of us, Aaron Rodgers was also disappointed after the season finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones. On the latest segment of The Pat McAfee Show, the Packers quarterback offered a few alternate endings to the series.
He said, “I haven’t read the books, which in some people’s mind cancels me from my ability to freely speak my opinion on the subject, but being a big fan of the show and a lover of it for many seasons, I think many of us were disappointed and confused by the ending.”
“There are so many storylines to me that didn’t make a lot of sense. I’ve said it earlier, I would have loved if it had just been, ‘Hey, you know, Cersei wins’ okay, cool you know, that’s the most Thrones thing ever or Tyrion (Lannister) gets the throne…. but (sighs) the way it ended it felt like it left a lot to be desired,” Rodgers said on the show.
