What We Really Learned From The Pat McAfee-Aaron Rodgers Interview

SEATTLE - AUGUST 21: Superbowl Champion Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers walks on Qwest Field after winning a football game August 21, 2010 in Seattle, Washington.


Aaron Rodgers finally broke his silence during his appearance on the Pat McAfee show on Wednesday. The future NFL Hall-of-Famer announced his attention to be a New York Jet this coming season. The news everyone has been waiting to hear, but not the biggest story to come from this interview.

One of the bigger stories from McAfee’s show today has to be Pat’s ability to market his show and flex his muscles on what his brand brings to the table. A show available on YouTube hit viewership that some shows on network television can only dream of. The show brought in nearly half a million viewers.

Incredible marketing, and McAfee’s professional wrestling-like stance of making the crowd want the interview as time continued to pass, helped the show tell a dramatic story and continue to grow the sports media legend of Pat McAfee and the boys.

McAfee knew he had the crowd in his hands and delivered on the biggest stage. Fans got the Rodgers news they had long waited for, and McAfee got the ratings and clicks the show was looking for. A tip of the hate to McAfee and the gang for making the most of a unique situation.
