After starting 6-0, the Green Bay Packers have dropped three-straight games behind Aaron Rodgers’ uncharacteristically poor play. Losing breeds contempt, but that contempt usually resides inside the locker room between players or coaches. In this instance, the vitriol has been spewed toward Rodgers’ girlfriend Olivia Munn. It’s one thing for fans to cook up horrible theories about a quarterback’s girlfriend affecting his play, but it’s an entirely different ordeal when a media member from a respected outlet fans the flames.
ESPN’s Rob Demovsky cited “off-field issues” as one underlying reason for Rodgers struggles. Munn took to Twitter to bemoan Demovsky and the media culture that allows an inherently misogynistic idea like this to permeate through the sports world.
