Well, we didn’t have to wait for Tuesday afternoon for Aaron Rodgers to respond to the claim that he’ll boycott the Super Bowl over the NFL’s COVID protocol.

Rodgers, retweeting the @BackAftaThis clip of Boomer Esiason suggesting that a trusted source has told him that Rodgers would take a stand by sitting out the Super Bowl over the NFL’s approach to the pandemic, laughed it all off with emojis and a variety of hashtags, including #dumbestfuckingstoryever.

Esiason’s co-host, Gregg Giannotti, added a second clip that shows the two hosts reaching a conclusion that it was some sort of a prank.

The original clip from @BackAftaThis should have included that part, frankly. However, when choosing to engage in real-time vetting of potentially phony tips during a live radio show, there’s a chance that some in the audience won’t hear the part where, after expressing confidence in the accuracy of the information, the hosts come to the conclusion that it was all a hoax. That’s why it always make sense to run tidbits like this through the crap filter before the show, not during it.
