I Support Rodgers Efforts to Resist the Mandates, but He Deliberately Misled Everyone

So, I have little sympathy for him at the moment.

Aaron Rodgers Tests Positive For COVID-19; Misled NFL World About Vaccination Status | The Daily Wire

And that’s where it gets interesting.

Rodgers — who recently spoke out against Cancel Culture — was asked by a reporter in August whether or not he was vaccinated.

“Yeah, I’ve been immunized,” Rodgers replied.

Yeah, see, he tries to mislead here. I can’t support that.

According to ESPN, Rodgers “had an alternate treatment prior to the start of training camp” and then asked the NFL to consider him on the same level as a player who has received one shot of the vaccine. The NFL denied that request and has considered Rodgers unvaccinated.

NFL rules require unvaccinated players to wear a mask at all times when at the facility. According to ESPN, Rodgers has worn a mask while around players and coaches. He has not worn a mask, however, while conducting his weekly press conference or after games, which also take place at the Packers facility.

He has been masking. That’s a plus for him. But the NFL clearly didn’t consider him “immunized”.

Hopefully this whole thing will blow over soon.
