MINNESOTA (WFRV) — The Star Tribune, based in Minneapolis, is drawing attention after they featured “Barr Injures Rodgers” as one of the top sports moments of the decade.
Pictures of the paper began circling Twitter and other social media platforms on Christmas. The front page has a collage of colored photos including Minnesota Golden Gophers football head coach P.J. Fleck and other state players as well as Minnesota Viking Anthony Barr tackling Aaron Rodgers.
That tackle in 2017 would leave Rodgers with a broken collar bone and the Vikings with a 23-10 victory.
Mixed responses have arisen on Twitter from both Packers fans and Vikings fans, as well as others. Some say a player being injured shouldn’t be considered a highlight while others say it changed the course of the NFC North in 2017.
