GREEN BAY - "I trusted him. And that's the thing that probably hurts the most," Aaron Rodgers reflected in the Packers locker room on Friday.
Rodgers trusted his good friend Ryan Braun when Braun told him there was no truth to the accusations of performance enhancing drugs.
"It doesn't feel great being lied to like that. I'm disappointed about the way it all went down," Rodgers said.
Braun's now suspended from the Brewers for the rest of 2013 for doping.
In the past, Rodgers strongly backed Braun's claims to innocence.
But in the locker room after today's first day of Packers training camp, he might be regretting that.
"In hindsight, a more measured approach next time would obviously be the better course of action," Rodgers said.
While baseball and the Ryan Braun situation by definition had to be the top topic for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in the locker room Friday, there was also football, as the Packers took to the field for the first time with a full compliment of rookies on the roster.
"Me and Eddie have a lot of vets as a part of this running back crew that we can learn from and grow from," said rookie running back Johnathan Franklin, a UCLA product.
Franklin was one of two running backs taken by Green Bay in the first four rounds of the draft.
He joins Alabama rookie back Eddie Lacy on the roster.
"We're all good backs. Everybody's going out there and giving it their best shot. At the end of the day, it's the coaches' decision," Lacy said.
Coach Mike McCarthy singled out rookie cornerback Micah Hyde as having a great opening day on the field.
"It's a compliment, but it's day one. We didn't have any defense, any offense, just have to go and try to compete. Tomorrow's not going to mean anything with what happened day one," Hyde said.
Saturday marks Day Two of camp - with just 13 to go before the preseason opener.
ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - Do bugs seem to be everywhere in your home, even though there's snow outside? One type of bug in Wisconsin spends the winter inside our houses! They look like Lady Bugs, but they are actually not native to this country.
"They're actually called a multi-colored Asian Lady Beetle. They can be anywhere from a pale yellow to a darker orange and they have black spots on them but you'll see some that don't have spots," says Kerri Ison, UW Oneida County Extension.
RHINELANDER - Our record breaking snow storm left more than 6,000 people across the Northwoods without power.
WPS had to rely on 20 extra crews from Green Bay, Wausau and Menominee to restore power.
But getting to the outages was a challenge.
A representative for WPS says workers are expecting even more outages to be reported.
"Not all of the back roads are plowed yet and that's where a lot of outages are located," said Leah Van Zile, WPS Community Relations leader. "Throughout the day as the temperatures warm, we expect to receive additional calls due to the unloading of snow off of the tree branches."
Eagle River had one of the highest number of customers affected by the outages.
Representatives for WPS say this was one of the hardest winters they've had to deal with.
"We've had some really, really severe wind chills which has really made the temperatures below zero. Typically, only in emergencies do we work in those conditions," said Van Zile. "But pretty much any other time, whether it's a rain storm, a snow storm, a wind storm, our guys are out there working, getting that power back on."
The number of outages dropped below 4,000 since earlier today.
If you're still without power to call 1800-450-7240.
