(Warning: This post contains spoilers from the finale of Game of Thrones.)
Green Bay Packers quarterback and "Game of Thrones" fan Aaron Rodgers, who made a guest appearance as an unnamed character in the TV series' penultimate episode, was not a fan of the show's polarizing finale, which aired on Sunday.
While countless fans have been complaining about the quality of the show's eighth and final season for weeks, Rodgers was very unhappy with the way the series concluding, with Bran Stark picked to rule Westeros. Rodgers said he would have liked to see Daenerys Targaryen on the Iron Throne, but listed off several characters he felt were more deserving to "win" the Game of Thrones than Bran … including Bronn.

"I love the show, and it was a great 10 years, but no," Rodgers said. "You come down to the end and Tyrion says the person with the best story is Bran, who, by the way, said he wasn't Bran Stark anymore.
"No. Jon had a better story. Dany had a better story. Arya had a better story. Sansa had a better story. Tyrion had a better story. Varys had a better story. Bronn? Lot better story. Jaime, better story. Cersei, probably better stories. Any Baratheon, better story."
Bran's storyline was a mess by Season 8 and was woefully executed, but any Baratheon ruling Westeros would have made for a better ending? Bronn? Varys? It sounds like Aaron Rodgers just really dislikes Bran, for whatever reason.
Rodgers also further debunked the popular Internet theories about his cameo appearance in the series' penultimate episode.
"The guy that got burned up … I'm disappointed in every person who would actually say that was me. Because if you watch that person run, they're a total non-athlete. A total non-athlete," Rodgers said. "And I wasn't the archer, either. Although, that person definitely looked like me."
So, try again, Internet.
