I don't get what the issue is. Teams manipulate IR all the time as the season ends. The NFL had to approve Rodgers being sent to IR the second time anyway, and obviously they did.

maybe not all the time, but it's not like it's an uncommon practice. teams place players on IR at the end of the year to get roster spots open, even if they're not 100% injured. kind of like in baseball when teams make up an injury to get someone on the DL. And again, the NFL has to approve whether or not a player can be placed on IR, which they did both times for Rodgers.

sure, but they cant take a guy off the IR, play him, and put him back on the IR for the same damn injury. That's akin to the Dodgers using the 10 day to expand their roster. And the fact the NFL okay'd it is exactly the issue. they scream parity but play the favorites that go against parity. What other team has gotten away with this?

the Dodgers didn't get in trouble for that, and they legitimately just made up injuries. I'm sure you remember when the Vikings ruled Favre out on a Saturday before they played the Bears on a Monday night, and then played after being ruled out. Nothing happened to them and that was far more egregious than what the Packers did. I don't see what the big deal is when they placed Rodgers on IR for Joe horsefeathering Callahan in two completely meaningless games.

Corey Wooten ended Favres career that game before the Vikings had the opportunity to put him back on the IR for the same injury, so not quite the same. In fact, not even close to the same

I think you get what the issue is but are pretending it's not one because it's easier that way.
