The NFL, NBA and MLB have all sided with woke culture in recent years, using their platforms to make political statements.
But the NFL’s latest outrage will really have fans begging them all to, “shut up and play.”
Because one league superstar dropped a bombshell that will have National Football League fans ready to burn tickets.
Just a few years ago, the NFL fumbled the ball when has-been quarterback Colin Kaepernick tried to resurrect his flailing career by using the league’s platform to protest against the police and America, wearing pig socks and kneeling for the National Anthem.
The NFL sided with woke players like Kaepernick, resulting in a feud with then-President Donald Trump and a loss of millions of fans.
However, despite the loss of revenue driving fans, the league decided to double-down and only became more emboldened taking political stands.
This was on full display during the seemingly never-ending COVID pandemic.
Meanwhile, Green Bay Packer quarterback legend, Aaron Rodgers – a young, healthy athlete – fought for freedom to decide what medicines go into his own body.
His stance caused a controversy at the time, and his latest comments are sure to result in even more.
In an interview on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, the four-time league MVP detailed how the NFL threatened to not pay players if they did not comply with the league’s desired COVID vaccine policies.
According to Rodgers, the league sent a “Fauci stooge,” into each team, with a presentation comparing each team’s vaccine “compliance percentage.”
“We’re going to virtue signal to say, ‘Look how righteous our league is. We have 95% compliance with the vaccine. And if you don’t, we’re going to send a stooge to your team to show you graphs of your vaccination percentage of your team compared to the rest of the league,’” Rodgers said. “Which actually happened. He showed these slides about what your vaccination percentage was on your team, where you [were] compared to the rest of the league.”
The NFL wanted to maintain at least a 90% compliance rate, and Rodgers said all exemptions were removed, including health and religious exemptions.
The Superbowl Champion went on to say the “stooge” said a player’s vaccination status would impact their ability to play and get paid.
“Well, it’s not only going to affect your day-to-day status on a team, but your ability to get a job, your ability to keep a job, your ability to get a tryout if you get cut from this team,” Rodgers said.
The Packers star added that if a team had enough ineligible players, they would be forced to forfeit games.
“And then they scared teams,” Rodgers explained. “And said if you had an outbreak caused by a non-vaccinated player, you not only forfeited that game if you had enough players out, but you wouldn’t get paid for that week.”
The highest-paid signal caller in the NFL also detailed the different sets of rules for vaccinated and unvaccinated players.
“The vaxxed had full privileges,” Rodgers said. “They tested once every two weeks. They had full privileges on the road. They could go out to dinner on the road. They could go to a concert in town. They could go to a comedy show in town. They could be at any place they wanted to and live life normally.”
Not so much for those who didn’t submit to the vax jab.
“Non-vaxxed: fully masked, zero privileges on the road, could not go into establishments of more than 15 people,” Rodgers said. “You could not be around more than three individuals from the team outside the facility.”
The Green Bay legend made waves around the league last season when he let the media believe he was vaccinated, when what he really said during, what he called, “the media vaccine witch hunt” was that he was immunized.
