Anti-Rodgers MVP Voter Immediately Walks Back His Rodgers’ Takes
Well, that didn’t last long. Hub Arkush, the Chicago sportswriter, declared that he would not vote for Aaron Rodgers because he’s a bad guy immediately apologized late last night. Rodgers called out Arkush on Wednesday calling him a ‘bum.’ Instead of firing back, the sportswriter decided to take the high road and move on. Given his other bad takes and his anti-Packers rhetoric that makes Florio blush, I typically would not give him a click but it has to be done.
Aaron Rodgers on Hub Arkush: “He’s a bum … an absolute bum.”
Rodgers thinks he should be excluded for voting for MVP because of his predisposition about him as a person.

I made a terrible mistake Tuesday with my Aaron Rodgers comments. It was completely my fault. There is no one else to blame, and I am here to try and apologize.

This apology doesn’t really have much rhyme or reason. He still admits that Rodgers is not getting his MVP vote And yes, there is a case for Tom Brady, maybe Joe Burrow, and if you wanted to be obscure Jonathan Taylor, but this is Arkush basically covering his ass. And trying to protect the others that will vote for the award. If Arkush really wanted to apologize, he would recuse himself from the vote this year and say ‘This will never happen again.’ To me, that feels more genuine
My guess is we will not see others give their MVP stances if they’re voting before early February. After the awards are handed out, they will come out of the woodwork. Arkush set an early trend.
