Well, now it’s looking likely that Rodgers misled us all along. On Wednesday, the news broke that Rodgers tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs because he is, indeed, not immunized with an actual Covid vaccine.
But the wounds cut much deeper than Rodgers missing four quarters of an NFL game. First off, there’s the simple selfish act of not getting a vaccine that protects yourself, your friends and your teammates. How can five million deaths worldwide, including more than 750,000 in the United States, not be enough to spook Rodgers into getting vaccinated? Keeping a dirty little secret like not being vaccinated from the public has exposed Rodgers as just another egotistical athlete who doesn’t think the rules (or science) apply to him. Per NFL Media, Rodgers had the nerve to ask the league and the NFLPA to grant him vaccinated status this summer because he had undergone treatment from his personal homeopathic doctor to raise his antibody levels.
