GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Any inquiries about Aaron Rodgers' personal life are consistently met with an immediate dismissal by the Packers' MVP quarterback. As reports surfaced this week that Rodgers is now engaged to his girlfriend, the fiercely private 28-year-old refused to discuss it during his Wednesday interview with local media. "My personal life is my personal life," Rodgers said. "It's always going to stay that way, and I will not comment on it." Rodgers, who fielded 10 questions before being asked about his potential engagement to his girlfriend, then added, "But you won the bet," to the television reporter who wanted the inside scoop on a story posted by BustedCoverage.com on Tuesday. This is routine behavior for Rodgers, who the website noted was with his girlfriend at a Vanderbilt football game over the weekend while she was sporting a ring on her left hand. Rodgers is very open and honest when it comes to discussing football-related topics, but off-the-field matters are mostly off-limits. There was another instance of this 10 days ago following Green Bay's win over the Arizona Cardinals. With the Packers about to begin their bye week, a reporter wanted to know where Rodgers was going to spend his time away, while also getting his thoughts on the upcoming presidential election. "I'm going to say that I'm not going to talk about where I'm going, personal choice, and the same thing for politics," Rodgers said. However, Rodgers does not shy away from being critical when he believes it's justified. He recently showed his frustration with the way CBS news magazine "60 Minutes" chose to edit its story on him. Instead of mentioning the MACC Fund, a childhood cancer research organization Rodgers gives plenty of his time to, "60 Minutes" focused much of its attention on Rodgers' sensitivity about his height and other issues. As he met with the local media Wednesday, Rodgers was sporting a full mustache in support of Movember -- an annual November event intended to raise awareness for early detection of cancer and to help battle the disease. When asked about his new facial hair growth, the quarterback used the opportunity to take another shot at "60 Minutes." "I just like this look, I do," Rodgers said. "Unlike some TV programs, any chance I can get to raise awareness about cancer, I'm going to do. That's why I'm choosing to wear this for now." Follow Paul Imig onTwitter.
