Apparently "60 Minutes" isn't going to sit back and let Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers take shots at it without a response.After Rodgers told the Detroit media in a conference call on Wednesday that his feature story on "60 Minutes" was "cut for their purposes, their agenda," the CBS news magazine fired back at the NFL's Most Valuable Player. Rodgers, the reigning NFL MVP, has been taking jabs at "60 Minutes" since the show aired an 11-minute piece on him Nov. 4."Aaron Rodgers was never taken out of context and most anybody portrayed as he was on 60 Minutes' would have been flattered by the story," CBS News chairman and executive producer Jeff Fager said in a statement to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "It was fair and accurate and it was obvious we got it right when we reported that he tends to be overly sensitive."On Wednesday, Rodgers was asked specifically about one section of the show's story on him, in which he talked about the possibility of teams other than the New Orleans Saints using a bounty program. Rodgers response included the line, "could have been."But Rodgers told Detroit reporters that it was not the way it appeared on television."I wouldn't put a whole lot of weight into that story," Rodgers said in his teleconference. "It was cut for their purposes, their agenda, and most of the answers were either just portions of a bigger answer or probably not even for the question that was asked. So, I'm not even going to touch that one."Included in the statement that Fager sent to the Journal Sentinel was the unedited transcript that Rodgers had with reporter Scott Pelley on the show.Pelley: There has been - a bit of a scandal in these recent months, that the league has reacted to, about players being paid bounties to knock guys like you out of the game. And I wonder if you've ever felt like you've been targeted in a game, somebody tryin' to take you out?Rodgers: Every game I feel like they're tryin' to take me out. Now, I don't know about money. I don't - I've never felt like there's been - (mic noise) been money on my head. But - that's what happens. The defense is tryin' to - is tryin' to either knock you out of the game or knock you out of your rhythm. Some teams are a tad bit dirtier than others - in the ways they go about doin' that. But - you know, it's everything from trash talkin' to - a borderline late hit, to - a dirty play. But - you know, some of that stuff is part of the game, and then some of that stuff (as we've seen) - most people agree is not part of the game.Pelley: You seeing more of it now or less?Rodgers: I think - about the same. I don't think that's - that really changes a whole lot. I - again, I can't speak on any of the bounty stuff. Like, I don't know - what teams were also using systems like that. But -Pelley: You think -Rodgers: I can tell you -Pelley: It's more than one?Rodgers: Could have been. Could have been. I think it's gotta be - in your mind. It's not outside the realm of thinking that there could have been other teams that had similar systems. But - no, I think - every defense is tryin' to - is tryin' to get after the quarterback.Pelley: You said some teams are dirtier than others. Who's dirty?Rodgers: I don't wanna give them any more fuel. They - they - those teams know who they are. They definitely know who they are.Pelley: And you know who they are.Rodgers: Yeah.This ongoing feud between Rodgers and "60 Minutes" appears to be far from over.
