Aaron Rodgers Rips Into NFLs New Covid Policies

Controversy be damned, Aaron Rodgers continues to discuss COVID-19 during his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show. On Tuesday’s edition of McAfee’s show Rodgers launched into another rant aimed at the NFL and what he called the “two-class system” of vaccinated and unvaccinated players.

“The league has adjusted some of the policies already.” Rodgers said. “What I don’t understand though, it makes no sense to me to continue to spread this narrative that non-vaccinated players are either more dangerous or super spreaders. Obviously it’s been proven to not be true.”

While his last sentence certainly isn’t in line with current CDC information out there, that didn’t stop Rodgers from continuing to attack the league’s approach. “Vaccinated people are testing positive, and non-vaccinated people are testing positive too. I don’t understand why there is still this two-class system.” Rodgers said. “It doesn’t make sense to me because we’re still punishing non-vaxxed people when a majority of the teams are vaccinated. Ones that are 100% vaccinated are still having major cases, and it’s across all sports too.”

Rodgers later added the caveat “my thoughts are just my own opinion on this matter,” before claiming that he believes he contracted the virus from “probably with an interaction with a vaccinated person who had COVID.”

In a season where Rodgers leads the MVP race and the Packers are clearly the best team in football it’s a little confounding that the superstar quarterback continues to dive into a topic that will do nothing but bring distraction.
