Aaron Rodgers denounces anti-Islamic fan

The Green Bay Packers faced the Detroit Lions on Sunday Lambeau Field.

The Green Bay Packers star quarterback was not happy by what he heard during the pregame moment of silence dedicated to honoring the victims of the terrorist attack in Paris.

Led by Commissioner Roger Goodell, the National Football League paid respects to the victims of the terrorist attacks.

The league has not held a league-wide moment of silence since 2012 when the Sand Hook Elementary shooting happened.

Watch the video above. Rodgers said,
"I must admit, though, I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was who made a comment that I thought was really inappropriate during the moment of silence. It's that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position that we're in today as a world."

When asked what the fan had said during the moment of silence, Rodgers declined to answer.

Whatever the fan might have said, I personally think it was totally unnecessary and inappropriate to interrupt a moment of silence. Thank you Aaron Rodgers for bringing this up publicly.

@straighshooter, I don't think you understand the point that I was trying to make with that comment. I did not say that our law system shouldn't need proof. Obviously that is how it works. (It's something I am pretty familiar with considering I was in school for pre-law and married to a cop that was murdered. I'm sure I'm familiar with it.) That was Not the point, though. I wasn't aware that we were discussing our judicial system. I WAS, however, trying to get Both of you to think about how we treat EACH OTHER as humans. I was stating that this is the world we live in and then asking if because of this world, should we have to prove every single word that comes out of our mouths or we are all automatically liars? When did switch from "innocent until proven guilty" over to "guilty until proven innocent"? This is the logic that YOU laid out earlier. Please keep that in mind. To confirm, I am talking about how we TREAT one another in day to day life, NOT about our judicial processes. Let's flip this back around to yourself. If you were raped, or your daughter, but you/she had no proof, would you simply not believe her? Would you say to her, "too bad...until you can prove it, it didn't happen!" Let's say she can't provide proof for a while, or even at all. What then? No sympathy? No belief? Nothing whatsoever? For the record, I HAVE been in this situation. I WAS raped. I was a junior writer and he was one of the editors of the gaming/tech site that I wrote for at the time. He had quite a fan following, too. So guess who was believed... it wasn't me. I did have to prove it. However, it took time to subpoena the video from the place where it happened. During that time of waiting, a third party, someone who knew him personally, took to her blog. She posted all about the fact that her "favorite gaming guru" was being persecuted because "some whore (me) was screaming rape" about what HAD to be "consensual sex". (See, because she found him to be attractive, and she saw no proof, I just HAD to be a liar.) For almost a year, I had men and women telling me almost daily that I was a liar, simply because they thought he was a "cool guy". I was called all sorts of names and treated like *I* was the one who did something wrong. Sorry to break it to you, but that is Not okay. (And, Yeah, I've watched it from the other side, too.) Whether the offense is rape, child abuse, or bullying, whatever, we should try being a bit more compassionate and understanding. I would rath...
*sigh* Wow. Hi Michael! @mchlyang *waving* How are you today, sir? Need popcorn? I'm going to point out something very simple. We are taught to treat others as we wish to be treated. This country has really lost hold of that these days. We only want what's okay for our personal selves or beliefs. We expect people to believe US but we won't give THEM any credit whatsoever. What happened to compassion and love in this world? Don't tell me "oh well they started it" or "I don't have to because it's a different world today". What happened to being the person you'd want others to be? So he says he heard something. Whether there is proof or not shouldn't matter. Maybe he heard it muttered from a teammate or coach or freaking water boy. WHO. CARES. That is not the point whatsoever. The point is that a moment of respect was asked for and he felt that someone stepped on that. I guarantee if someone stepped into your churches (any church, any religion) and started jeering - during prayer, learning, silent reflection, whatever - you'd darn sure want your offenses to be respected. Instead, we yell "prove it!!" Smh. What's wrong with that picture? Does it end there? No, because this is our world today isn't it? A woman is raped and we make HER prove it. A child is abused? Prove it. I was offended by someone. Guess I'd better prove it?? No matter which side of the fence you are on regarding religion, there is only one judge and jury when you step from this world. Depending on your belief system, you may call that judge by a different name, but in the end, how about you tend to your own soul? Instead of screaming and yelling and acting a fool, embarrassing your father of choice, and making yourselves look the OPPOSITE of what you claim your faith teaches, how about you tap into that compassion and learn to love again. Because, maybe I can't read, (spoiler: I Can) but I have read both of your sacred texts, ladies, and the way you are choosing to act is Not what is taught in them. I'm sorry if that offends you, but I warned people when I became a news mod to play nice. Have a great day!! ^.^
And our Vingle president, @InPlainSight! I am glad I chose you as the Vingle president. And I agree with you. I am glad he came out and addressed it. And even if we don't have proof, these kinds of actions could become preventive measures for the future just in case other fans decide to take inappropriate actions during moments like the moment of silence.
@nicolejb And after watching the Fox coverage of the game, I did hear someone in the crowd say "Muslims suck!" really loudly. It was pretty disturbing to hear someone say that especially during the moment of silence! And I am glad Aaron Rogers did mention it publicly.
Phew! Sorry to jump in here so late. Aaron Rogers is one of my favs, and I think this issue goes very deep, especially as of recent. this was just an example of a football payer setting an example, I don't think the guy got in trouble for his comments, right? anyway, I'm glad that there was a discussion on this. It's going to be a heating conversation over the next several month (and years maybe...)

Wettquoten – Arten und Berechnungen
Wenn Sie auf ein Sportspiel zwischen den Teams A und B wetten möchten, möchten Sie zunächst wissen, wie viel Sie gewinnen würden, wenn Sie das Ergebnis richtig vorhersagen würden. Tatsächlich zeigt Ihnen der Buchmacher als Erstes die Quoten, denn sie sind genau das – Zahlen, die Ihnen sagen, wie viel Sie gewinnen, wenn Sie die Wette gewinnen. Obwohl sie alle den gleichen Betrag haben, werden Sie bei verschiedenen Sportpokes keine einheitliche Zahl finden, da jeder eine bestimmte Methode zur Angabe der Quoten anwendet. Dieser Artikel beschreibt die verschiedenen Arten von Wettquotenspezifikationen und wie Sie die jeweils zu erwartenden Gewinne berechnen. Überprüfen Sie auch: EM 2021 Wetten Es gibt drei verschiedene Arten von Quotenspezifikationen: Dezimalquoten, auch als europäische Quoten bekannt, fraktionierte Quoten, auch als britische Quoten bekannt, und amerikanische Quoten . Vielleicht wegen ihrer korrekten Darstellung der Situation werden die Dezimalformen als die Standardspezifikationsmethode angesehen. Der Zweck der Quotenspezifikation, in welcher Form auch immer, besteht darin, den Geldbetrag, den ein Wetter setzt, mit dem Betrag in Beziehung zu setzen, den er/sie gewinnt. Dazu muss man mit drei Terminologien vertraut sein: Einsätze, Gewinne und Auszahlungen. Einsätze sind der eingesetzte Geldbetrag, Gewinne sind der bei einer Wette gewonnene Betrag und Auszahlungenist der Gesamtbetrag, der gezahlt wird, wenn eine Wette gewonnen wird. Auszahlungen sind natürlich Gewinne plus Einsätze. Obwohl diese Terminologien trivial erscheinen mögen, sind sie Herz und Seele der Quotenberechnungen. Außerdem ist es wichtig, drei weitere Terminologien bezüglich der Stärke der Teams in einem Spiel zu kennen; sie sind Evens, Odds-on und Odds- Against. Evens sind, wenn die beiden Teilnehmer gleich stark sind und es daher keinen Favoriten oder Außenseiter gibt; Sie setzen 1 $, um 1 $ zu gewinnen, wenn keine Provisionen beteiligt sind. Odds-on ist die Quote des Favoriten und in diesem Fall sind die Gewinne geringer als die Einsätze. Quoten-gegen ist die des Underdogs, bei der die Gewinne normalerweise höher sind als die Einsätze. Im häufigsten Fall von Sportwetten auf ein Spiel zwischen zwei konkurrierenden Wettkämpfern (gerade Quoten) betragen die beiden zugewiesenen Quoten beispielsweise 1,90 in Dezimalquoten, 9/10 in Bruchteilen und -111 in amerikanischen Quoten, alles von was dasselbe bedeutet: "Einen Dollar wetten, um 90 Cent zu gewinnen". In der Tat, wenn keine Provision involviert wäre oder wenn die Wetten nur zwischen Freunden getätigt wurden, diese Quoten wären für die drei Arten von Quoten 2,0, 1/1 bzw. 100 gewesen; sie bedeuten "einen Dollar wetten, um einen Dollar zu gewinnen". Dezimalquoten (europäisch) Dies sind einfach Faktoren, die angeben, wie oft der Einsatz ausbezahlt wird. Zum Beispiel bedeutet eine Quote von 2,50, dass die Auszahlung das Zweieinhalbfache des Einsatzes beträgt, oder für jeden eingesetzten Dollar beträgt die Auszahlung 2,50 $. Auszahlung = Einsatz * Dezimalquote Gewinn = Einsatz * (Dezimalquote - 1) Bruchquoten (UK) Die Bruchzahlen hier bedeuten, dass ein Einsatz in Höhe des Nenners zu einem Gewinn in Höhe des Zählers führt. Zum Beispiel bedeutet eine Quote von 10/11, dass 10 Einheiten mit einem Einsatz von 11 Einheiten gewonnen werden, oder für jede 11€ Wette beträgt der Gewinn 10€. Gewinn = Einsatz * Bruchquote Auszahlung = Einsatz * (Fraktionsquoten + 1) Amerikanische Quoten (US) Amerikanische Quoten werden durch Zahlen angegeben, die immer größer oder gleich 100 sind, denen ein '+' oder '-' vorangestellt ist. Diese Zeichen sind keine mathematischen Zeichen; Sie sind einfach Symbole, die darauf hinweisen, ob Ihre Gewinne höher oder niedriger sind als Ihre Einsätze. Das positive Vorzeichen wird verwendet, um einen Außenseiter anzuzeigen, bei dem die Gewinne höher sind als die Einsätze, oder dass es sich um eine Wette mit Quoten gegen Wetten handelt; und das negative Vorzeichen steht für Favoriten- oder Quoten-Wetten. Diese beiden Quoten haben völlig unterschiedliche Definitionen und verwenden daher Berechnungen, die nicht miteinander verbunden sind. Negative Quoten geben an, wie viel Sie setzen müssen, um 100 $ zu gewinnen. Eine Quote von -110 bedeutet zum Beispiel, dass der Einsatz 110€ betragen muss, um 100€ zu gewinnen. Gewinn = Einsatz * 100/negative amerikanische Quoten Auszahlung = Einsatz * (100/negative amerikanische Quoten + 1) Positive Quoten geben an, wie hoch der Gewinn sein wird, wenn 100 $ gesetzt werden. Zum Beispiel bedeutet eine Quote von +110, dass 110 $ gewonnen werden, wenn 100 $ gesetzt werden. Gewinn = Einsatz * positive amerikanische Quoten/100 Auszahlung = Einsatz * (positive amerikanische Quoten/100 + 1) Einige herausragende Merkmale dieser Quoten. Dezimalquoten sind immer größer als 1,0, da '1' den Einsatz darstellt. Amerikanische Quoten sind immer größer oder gleich 100 (denken Sie daran, dass + und - nur Symbole und keine mathematischen Zeichen sind). Bruchquoten und amerikanische Quoten weisen auf Gewinne hin, während dezimale Quoten auf Auszahlungen hinweisen. Das könnte Sie auch interessieren: EM 2021 Wettquoten Gerade Quoten in Bezug auf eine faire Wette sind, wenn Sie genau den Betrag Ihres Einsatzes gewinnen. Geraden werden also dezimal durch 2,0, in gebrochenen Quoten durch 1/1 und in US-Quoten durch 100 dargestellt (-100 und +100 sind gleich). Bei Odds-on, d. h. wenn die Gewinne geringer sind als die Einsätze, was normalerweise bei einem Favoritenteam der Fall ist, liegen die Dezimalquoten zwischen 1,0 und 2,0. Bei Bruchquoten werden sie dadurch identifiziert, dass der Zähler (Gewinn) kleiner als der Nenner (der Einsatz) ist, und bei US-Quoten sind es die negativen Quoten. Im Falle von Odds-Agons, d. h. wenn die Gewinne größer sind als die Einsätze, was normalerweise bei einem Underdog-Team der Fall ist, ist die Dezimalquote größer als 2,0, der Zähler ist größer als der Nenner bei Bruchquoten, und sie sind die positiven Quoten in US-Quoten.

NFL Dads Tackle Hair Styling In This Pantene Campaign.
Every year, major sponsors shell out some serious cash to grab our attention during the Super Bowl, by far the largest single sporting event of the year. They enlist A-List celebrities, bust out the CGI, and have the ability to transform a typical 30-second spot into a minute long movie of epic proportions. However, if there's one thing that these companies can learn from haircare brand Pantene this year, it's that turning on America's feels doesn't have to be that complicated - just bring in the adorableness of some NFL kids! Pantene's 'Dad-Do' Super Bowl campaign features a number of popular NFL fathers taking a stab at styling their daughters' hair with Pantene products. Like you could probably guess, they definitely struggle through it, but with some adorable encouragement from their daughters, the results are very much 'aww'-worthy. (My personal favorite is pictured above: DeAngelo Williams of the Pittsburgh Steelers versus his daughter Rhiya's braids and bows.) Benjamin Watson, tight end for the New Orleans Saints, displayed some pigtail game earning an impressed high five from his daughter, Grace. (He tried to argue that bigger hands make it hard for athletes to style hair, but he didn't do too bad for a first-timer!) The Dallas Cowboys' Jason Witten's adorable daughter Landry was SUPPOSED to get a braided ballerina bun, but let's just say there were some complications on the way. (Hey, if there's anything the Cowboys learned this season, it's that you can't win 'em all!) Click the video above for a look at the finished 30-second Super Bowl ad, or visit Pantene's official YouTube Channel to watch the full styling videos from each athlete. So how do you think they did? Was this concept just as adorable to you as it was to me? Let me know in the comments below and for more trending videos from across the web, follow my YouTube Nation collection!
