Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a big fan of Game Of Thrones and even got have his very own cameo in the penultimate episode of the series. Much like many of the fans of the show, Rodgers was disappointed by how the show ended. Some felt like the show was rushed, while others thought the writing was poor compared to previous years.
Rodgers was one of the people who was angered by the finale as he was asked about the show in a recent interview. WSIN News 12’s Stephen Watson tweeted out a video of Rodgers’ answer that has since been deleted. In it, Rodgers was highly critical of what he saw.
“I love the show and it was a great 10 years, but no,” Rodgers said when asked if he enjoyed the ending. “I mean, you come down to the end and Tyrion says the person with the best story is Bran, who by the way three episodes ago said he wasn’t Bran Stark anymore.”
Rodgers then proceded to give his own theory on everything that went down, saying a lot of it didn’t actually make any sense.
“Here’s the thing, though, here’s my last theory,” Rodgers said. “If Bran, the three-eyed raven who’s all about the health of the realm, let’s think about what he did. Basically wanted the Throne the whole time because he’s the one that told the Starks knowing that Sansa would tell Tyrion, knowing that Tyrion would talk to Varys, knowing they’d scheme for Dany’s death, knowing that would piss her off, which led her to be the Mad Queen. So, he the entire time had to set this whole thing up? And at the end, he goes, ‘I don’t want to be king, but why did I travel all this way to be here?’ No.”
Hopefully, Rodgers can give his Packers a better season finale next year then he got with Game Of Thrones.
