Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun have a lot in common and have formed a strong friendship because of their similarities. Both men are talented yet cocky athletes from California now winning MVPs for Wisconsin teams. Rodgers has called Braun his best athlete friend, and Braun has done Rodgers’ championship belt celebration after getting a hit during a game.

When news of Braun’s positive drug test emerged, Rodgers defended his friend. After the suspension was overturned, Rodgers began celebrating.

At first came a tweet that said “exonerated.”

Rodgers was just getting going. Next came a barrage of tweets calling out media outlets and MLB.

 

MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with.Truth will set u free#exonerated

When its guilty until proven innocent, all u need are the facts. #howsthecrowmlb#exonerated

— Aaron Rodgers (@AaronRodgers12) February 23, 2012

 

I’ll let my buddy take it from here. All u idiots talking about technicality open up for some crow too.See if Espn gets pressured not to..

— Aaron Rodgers (@AaronRodgers12) February 23, 2012

 

Rodgers finished his flurry by saying “let the people hear the truth. Should get interesting.”

I know Rodgers is ecstatic and happy for his friend, but he’s going overboard and misinterpreting the facts. As I explained before, just because the suspension was overturned doesn’t mean Ryan Braun is clean. It just means that the arbitration panel had enough reason to doubt the test because it took two days before it reached the lab.
