Aaron Rodgers fined by NFL for Covid-19 violations
It has been nearly two weeks since Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for Covid-19 and the frenzy around the situation is still fresh. Rodgers has been under extreme scrutiny due to his violations of protocols and admitted to misleading the public about his vaccination status. Rodgers is unvaccinated for Covid-19. Now, the Packers and Rodgers are paying the price.
The NFL handed down fines of $300,000 to the Packers and $14,560 each to Aaron Rodgers and teammate Allen Lazard for being in very clear violation of Covid protocols. Rodgers and Lazard attended a Halloween party despite their unvaccinated status and were consistently non-compliant in their mask-wearing. Any further violations could result in more severe punishments for the team, including loss of draft picks.
Rodgers has taken to “The Pat Mcafee Show” multiple times the past 2 weeks to defend his stance. During the interviews, Rodgers stated he was “in the crosshairs of the woke mob” and insistent on the benefits of homeopathic medicine. Rodgers even stated that he turned to a friend, Joe Rogan, who famously battled Covid-19 last month, for a bulk of his medicinal information. In his second appearance, it was clear Rodgers was ready to move on from the situation. He admitted his comments were misleading and shrugging off any further criticism.
