Join the conversation on Twitter:the show: @theAPCPodAlex: @AlexPetakasZach: @ZachRapportBen: @BenFoldy Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers thinks he knows how digital media works. Generally http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authen … son-jersey , he does. More specifically, as it relates to the application of the term clickbait to stories that focus on objective evidence of Rodgers not seeing eye to eye with new coach Matt LaFleur, Rodgers doesnt.In recent days, Rodgers have been attributing stories about actual or apparent friction between himself and the first-year head coach who is only a few years older than Rodgers to clickbait. Its not clickbait; its the development of opinions and analysis based on the words that have come out of his mouth while speaking to reporters about specific aspects of the situation in Green Bay.Asked recently by former NFL fullback John Kuhn during a one-on-one for Packers.com regarding whether Rodgers has discussed the outside noise relating to the relationship between Rodgers and LaFleur, Rodgers was dismissive.Its fake news, John, Rodgers said. Thats the media cycle these days. Unfortunately, the media other than obviously yourself theres a lack of integrity, I think. Theres a rush to put up headlines that are clickbait because the ad revenue is based on the amount of visits you get to your website. So instead of putting in a title that aptly fits the forthcoming article, its more lucrative to post something thats going to generate the most commotion so that your site or your story gets the most hits possible. And when youre in a really low news cycle like in June and July when theres not much football going on, thats the kind of stuff that comes out. We dont need to spend any time talking about it because its complete ridiculousness.Clickbait isnt the issue. Theres no clickbait at play between the content of stories regarding potential conflict between Rodgers and LaFleur and the titles to those items. But its easier for Rodgers, like it is for certain high-profile politicians Brett Hundley Jersey White , to shrug at criticism as fake news or clickbait than to address the point thats actually being made.Rodgers continued his assault on clickbait earlier today, both while speaking at his locker (where he admitted that, in dealing with the head coach, Rodgers needs to put his ego and sensitivity aside) and while being interviewed by SiriusXM NFL Radio.A lot of these sites you have like eight words to describe what the articles about, Rodgers told SiriusXM NFL Radio. What are they gonna do? Theyre gonna put names and words thats gonna draw the most attention to it. And thats what I was bringing to light. I dont think I was speaking out of turn or ripping on anybody specifically. But it is what it is. Thats the way that we ingest our data. Its so quick. Were, ourselves, are flying through, you know, whether its tweets or social media filters or online sites, and were just looking for like buzzwords. Oh, oh, that looks fun Marwin Evans Jersey White , Im gonna do that. Well, they know that. The most expensive commodity is not oil anymore. Its data. They know what theyre doing. Theyre mining that data. And theyre figuring out what people preferences, code words, colors, different things to get people to click on their stuff. Because the more clicks they get, the more ad revenue. And the more ad revenue, the more the salary, you know, that the companys making. And thats the way that the whole news cycle works. Im just tired of being put in that news cycle. Because Ive been saying the same thing over and over. Matt and I, its gonna be a relationship that grows over time. Were having a blast. Were friends. Ton of communication. And were having a great time.If Rodgers doesnt want to be put in that news cycle, he should quit saying things that naturally flow into that news cycle. When he complains to Mike Silver of the NFL that Rodgers wants more freedom at the line of scrimmage than the LaFleur offense gives him, Rodgers puts himself in that news cycle. When Rodgers complains to reporters about joint practices and http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authen … rks-jersey , more surprisingly, specifically says its not smart to have close-to-live kickoff drills that are sure to catch the attention of the NFL Players Association, Rodgers puts himself in that news cycle.Rodgers, like certain high-profile politicans, wants to be able to say whatever is on his mind, without scrutiny or criticism. Unfortunately, the scrutiny and the criticism is part of the price that gets paid for having a big platform, for making more than $30 million a year, and ultimately for saying things that merit scrutiny and criticism.
