How did Aaron Rodgers make the analysts mad?

During a segment on the episode, they were discussing Aaron Rodgers saying he wouldn’t “rule out” the idea of retirement. Shannon Sharpe seems to have had enough of this.

He said that Rodgers is only doing this for attention. Sharpe believes that the Packers have given Rodgers everything, so what does he want now? There’s no denying Rodgers’ talent, but according to Sharpe, bringing retirement up is a waste of time. Sharpe said, “He knows exactly what he’s doing,” Shannon adds, “My thing is, what can they give you?” 

Sharpe also thinks that Rodgers is making the future of the Green Bay Packers uncertain because that is what they did to him. So Rodgers is trying to give them a taste of their own medicine.

Following Sharpe’s comments, Skip Bayless said, “Shannon Sharpe, I know how much you love Aaron as a quarterback on the football field, during football games.” Skip continues, “But I gotta tell you, I got no use for him on and off the field because of this. Aaron Rodgers makes me even sicker than Kyrie makes me.”

The ‘Kyrie’ Skip Bayless was referring to is NBA star Kyrie Irving. This one statement summed up the entire point Bayless was trying to make. He believes that Rodgers just wants everyone to give him sympathy.
