Aaron Rodgers on Cal fans: "They get mad when I say Butte College" - 10-31-2012, 03:36 PM

Also, listen to the full clip to find out what Tedford-era clothing Rodgers is wearing during his radio show.

in case folks didn't realize it yet, Cal fans are extremely sensitive and insecure about our sports program's (lack of) importance to former players and national observers.

Even having any kind of response or reaction to a player citing a different alma mater is excessive.

Has any player named his grade school or kindergarten class? Their preschool montessori class?

Any way, I have no problem if any player changes things up and acknowledges his old school, hometown, HS, JC, college. As an alum or homer you like to hear your school but it's a freakin' game intro not anything else.

I am fine with Rodgers saying Butte College... if anyone bothered to open their doors to him out of high school, he might say their name.



Also, Tedford was less lucky to find Rodgers than Rodgers was lucky to be found (not to pat Tedford on the back too hard :-p )

I think it's cool A-Rodge even knows this. Kind of shows us as a rabid fanbase.

CAL fans are an extremely sensitive and defensive and "woe is us" bunch.

It's cool that he knows we get mad.
That means somehow, he's still in touch with Cal's fan base.

Cool how he was wearing Cal sweatpants and a Cal t-shirt during the interview too.

Just one of the great things about Rodgers is that he doesn't forget where he came from...and the people that believed in him, along the way; ergo, he mentions Pleasant Valley HS, Butte College, and Cal...at different times. Good for him. Shows his true character. Good man.

As I've said repeatedly....Cal fans are

1) stupid

http://bearinsider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=64221

2) whiners

The problem is that so many Cal fans are nerds and dweebs that they have nothing else to do besides sit around and conjure up crazy theories (see the stupid thread) and to whine and complain about every little perceived slight.

I don't mind it when Rodgers says Butte, but I get furious when Desean says Long Beach Poly. At least that seems to be the sentiment on this board.

DJax reformed and said Cal or California a few times. Have to give credit where it's due.

Interesting to hear that they don't even record the intro anew for every game. He said that they do it once a year, and sometimes, the same intro is rolled out for multiple years. So the player isn't even making a game-by-game decision about what to say. And on this board, people wait each game to see what the player decided to do "this week."
