    He's still a hack.

    Credible journalism, I miss you!

    Agreed, he's a hack. It would be nice if this would cast him in half the bad light his rush job did to Aaron, but people already think little of Florio, so it won't make an ounce of difference.

    Vince Lombardi haunted him in his dreams I bet. Vince hated journalist, and if one ever wrote a hit piece like that he would have chased him out of town. Well... had Ray do it for him actually.

    I'm pretty sure the very last paragraph shows that he's not entirely sincere. It's a good effort, and it's well written, but he just doesn't mean it.

    Kind of like Favre saying Rodgers is the best QB left, but he has the best receiving corps ever and the defense deserves the MVP?

    Yep, thinly veiled attempts showing that both parties are trying to say the right thing, but sticking to their true feelings.

    At least he apologized, now what agitates me is I want our QB focused on this upcoming game. No offense to Aaron, but the fans want to see him lead the Packer to wins, then they want his autograph. if we want media yahoo's we still got Favre, (finally found a use for him now :) ) So get the drama off our current QB's shoulders and have him play some Lights Out football and start earning himself some championships.

    OK, whatever Mr. Rodgers. I still don't buy it, but you tried to make amends, so let's forget it and move on to getting focused on beating the Bears!

    It has the feeling of a my-mom-made-me-do-this apology.

    Well hopefully this will be a HUGE lessoned learned for him. I'm glad he finally did write an apology.

    Florio in case anyone is confused in who I'm talking about.

    Florio is still an idiot. He was awful quick to bury Rodgers and it took him a little bit to say "sorry." I don't buy it.

    going over how he got the story...

    got emails on the video..

    saw Rodgers walk by Jan with ear phones on..

    Has experience with cancer and acted on emotion, with out looking into it more..

    As people started to push back, his Italian heritage made him stubborn..

    But as he slept on it, he realized more to story...

    Never really point that made him changed his mind...Just nagged on him that he did the wrong thing...Got caught up in the emotions...Once he apologized he felt better and ready to move on

    Rodgers not even acknowledging her is what bothered him more than not signing for her

    Thats it...

    I think he was honest..I have acted on emotions on stuff and not listened to entire story in the past.,.It can happen

    But he knows he needs to do more research before posting
