    Rodgers: Tapp put bite on him - JSOnline


    If it's true, that's some garage-league play right there.
    As the article points out, it could all just be a misunderstanding.

    Yeah looking at both sides of the story, it just sounds like a load of crap, No one cares why would it come to light just before this gaeme?

    I dont see it. It would be an accident anyway I reckon

    A grown man biting another during the course of a game??? Think about how ridiculous that is for a moment and anybody that would defend it or excuse it best check themselves.

    Oh, and pardon me if I tend to believe Aaron Rodgers on this one.

    I definitely don't defend it or excuse it, *if* it happened. That sort of thing is inexcusable.
    Not calling Rodgers a liar, but his being mistaken about it is definitely a possibility. I'm not claiming whether it actually happened or not.:unsure:

    I watched that part of the game again. Rogers definitely is saying something to Tapp, then gets up pushing Tapp's head down. Then looks at his left bicep which was covered.

    Tapp gets up smiling, and clapping his hands.

    Rogers then proceeds to throw a checkdown to Brandon Jackson resulting in 4th down.

    Ironically, the announcers were the ones saying Rogers was playing cheap by pushing Tapp's head down.

    Looks true to me based on the video evidence. hard to be mistaken if somebody BITES you. Why would rogers be looking at his arm after that. My verdict. Tapp = Guilty as charged.

    Bush league antics for sure.

    Not so much. He coulda simply gotten pinched or something by Tapp's helmet and honestly thought he was being bitten.
    I have a hard time visualizing how he could bite Rodgers through that helmet. Is that even possible?

    Well, in soccer is quite common for one to put a finger... You get the picture...

    And soccer is a fairly soft sport... I wouldn't be chocked if worse things happened in Football.
    -
    But regarding the incident, I think it was all a misunderstanding. I don't know how one can bite throught the facemask...

    However, I doubt Rodgers would make this up, he wouldn't gain anything by doing this.

    So I have to conclude that probably, like the article said, the arm got trapped between the facemask and the turf or something...

    Unless his arm had a bite-shape mark...

    Seriously, if Rodgers came away from that with chomper-marks, Tapp shoulda been kicked out of the league on his ear. Playing ball is one thing, but assault is something completely different.

    Um yeah... things get pretty uncivilized in a pile up so, yeah, It could have happened very easily and wouldn't be the first time or the last time...I do not doubt it but... I wasn't there - thank god. :)

    You know it is very possible in a dog pile that your chinstrap can slide up causing your mouth to be exposed. I seriously doubt Arod would make that up, but like everyone is saying it could have just been pinched..we'll never know the truth haha

    So, let me get this straight: Aaron Rodgers fabricated this story because he has a personal vendetta against Daryl Tapp. OK, got it.

    What the hell kinda dope you people on???

    Sure - and my *** sucks saltwater!!!

    Let me guess - Mike Tyson didn't really intend to bite Evander's ear off, either, right???

    Some of you people are frighteningly gullible.

    Helmets can get pushed up and if his facemask landed on roger's arm and sort of overlapped it, his arm could have been bit.

    However, rewatching the video, Tapps straps are all in place which does make it harder to believe, but not impossible. Why would Rogers lie? Rogers has no motive that I can think of to lie about it unless he is friends with Tapp and is just playing a prank through the media. I just don't see Roger's doing that.

    Why would Roger's be angry and push his head into the ground unless he KNEW Tapp did bite him.

    A pinch and a bite are two different things. He said he looked down and saw him Biting him.

    I personally believe Rogers.

    Anybody that doesn't has severe issues with rational thought processing and is probably looking forward to a life of high unemployment and government subsidies. :happy0005:

    I wonder if a part of his helmet pinched him and it felt like a bee sting. I can't imagin a human bite leaving a mark that long. I think I'll check out a Seattle site and see if there is anything about it there...brb

    3 Seahawks were on top of Rogers, and another right behind him on that sack. I think 1 or 2 of em were DE's.

    How does a facemask pinch a bicep? It's not like it has moving parts that could cause it to collapse down and cause it to pinch.

    I thought Rodgers said he got a Bruise from the bite since he had long sleeves on. I think the PFT article said that.

    Rodgers said there was a mark on his arm for several weeks and I don't think a human bite would leave a mark that long but I may be wrong.

    Ask Holyfield how long bite marks can last.

    I'm sure it would, and I'm sure the tooth marks would have been prominent, *if* it was actually a bite. Which begs the question; why didn't he show somebody after the game instead of waiting over a year to complain about it?
    We all would've known for certain one way or the other. Now it's too late.

    Murgen,
    Please let us know when you do get that video uploaded. I'd really like to see it myself.
    Merry and safe Christmas!

    Hauschild,
    That's not cool, man. I'm not saying anything even remotely like that.

    I do not have any reason to think Aaron Rodgers would lie about it, and I wouldn't accuse anybody of lying (or fabricating) unless I had proof. Please don't put words in my mouth.

    What I'm saying is that *the possibility exists that Rodgers was mistaken*.
    If Tapp did actually bite him (which we will never know now), that's not football, it's aggravated assault and he deserves to be kicked out of the league.

    Please keep in mind that I'm not the enemy here. I have no dog in this fight.
    / I come in peace:scout_en:
