>>Favre: Don’t Read Too Much Into Rodgers Comments After Loss To Bucs
(Green Bay, WI) — Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre says fans shouldn’t read too much into comments by Aaron Rodgers after Sunday’s season-ending 31-26 loss to Tampa Bay. Rodgers indicated his future with the team was uncertain. Favre says there’s nothing the Packers would do to risk losing their future Hall of Fame quarterback. He says Rodgers is playing better now than he ever has in a career filled with achievements and awards. Rodgers is 37 years old and he could choose to retire, but he’d be leaving more than 130-million dollars in salary behind and his competitive nature makes a move like that very unlikely.
>>DiVincenzo’s Play Eases The Sting Of The Failed Trade For Bogdanovic
(Milwaukee, WI) — Maybe it’s just as well that the Milwaukee Bucks weren’t able to complete the trade for Bogdan Bogdanovic last November. So far this season, Donte DiVincenzo has outplayed him after joining the starting lineup. DiVincenzo is hitting 47-percent of his 3-pointers, compared to 36-percent for Bogdanovic. He’s also outscoring him 11-point-two points-a-game to nine-point-nine. He’s among the league leaders in steals and his Player Efficiency Rating is 16-point-two. Bogdanovic checks in at 10-point-one. Slowly, the disappointment of the trade that didn’t go through may be fading away for the Bucks.
>>Badgers Basketball Falls To No. 14 In Poll
(Madison, WI) — Last week’s 74-62 home-court loss to Ohio State has knocked the Wisconsin Badgers out of the top 10. The Associated Press Poll this week has Wisconsin ranked 14th. Three Big Ten teams are above coach Greg Gard’s squad – Michigan, Iowa, and Ohio State. The Badgers may be able to move back up in the poll this week while playing winnable games against Maryland Wednesday and Penn State Saturday. A quirk of the Big Ten schedule has the Nittany Lions traveling to Madison next Tuesday for back-to-back games. Undefeated Gonzaga and Baylor are at the top of this week’s A-P poll.
>>MLB Players Union Rejects Initial Offer By Teams
(Undated) — The Major League Baseball players union has rejected a proposal from the teams. The offer included the universal designated hitter, what MLB called “extra money,” and expanded playoffs. The union believes the expanded postseason dilutes the competitive integrity of the game and the “extra money” was just a return to 2019 levels. The two sides have less than a month until spring training begins to get something done – unless the coronavirus pandemic forces the season to be delayed. League officials are reportedly frustrated by what they see as the union’s refusal to negotiate. The current collective bargaining agreement expires after this season – meaning a strike is possible after that.
