Rodgers Says Fan Yelled Something Inappropriate During Moment of Silence

(CBSSports) Before every NFL game on Sunday, there was a moment of silence for the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks. That included Green Bay, where some fan at the Packers-Lions game apparently yelled something inappropriate.

We don't know what it was but Aaron Rodgers certainly heard it. And during his postgame commentary, when asked what he thought about the tribute, called out the fan in question.

"I think it's important to do things like that. We're in a connected world. Six degrees of separation," Rodgers said. "I must admit though I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was that made a comment that I thought was really inappropriate during the moment of silence. It's that kind of prejudicial ideology that puts us in the position that we're in today as a world."

Without knowing specifically what the fan in question said, it's fair to say yelling anything during a moment of silence for people who lost their lives in a senseless act of terrorism is totally unwarranted, unnecessary and inappropriate.

Good on Rodgers for using his platform to speak out against it and for being willing to speak his mind.
