Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went on a Milwaukee radio show and criticized the NFL for being money-hungry.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn't cooled off after the Seattle Seahawks defeated Rodgers' team on a controversial last-second call that was ruled a touchdown instead of an interception.

In fact, Rodgers has only opened up after being very short in answering questions about the replacement officials' call following the game. Rodgers went on a Milwaukee radio show Tuesday and said the NFL only cares about money. From an NFL.com transcription of the interview:

"NFL obviously cares more about saving some money than having the integrity of the game diminished a little bit," Rodgers said.

"This is a multi-billion dollar operation against 16 to 17 crews of 7-to-8 35-to-50-year-old guys who want a little insurance on the back end. Want to be taken care of for the job that they do. Believe that their job is an important part of that shield, the NFL brand."

A six-minute rant by Rodgers included more harsh criticism of the NFL.

He called the league "embarrassing" and its after-analysis of the call in the 14-12 Seattle victory "garbage." The Green Bay quarterback said there was no communication between the officiating crew after one referee appeared to signal a touchback while the other called it a touchdown.
