NFL Coaches and Players Sound Off on League’s New COVID-19 Rules

Tatum Report:

Offensive line coach of the Minnesota Vikings, Rick Dennison, has reportedly stepped down from his position after refusing to get vaccinated for Covid-19. Dennison has been the Vikings’ offensive line coach and run game coordinator for the past two seasons. The Hill reports Phil Rauscher will replace him.

Cole Popovich, co-offensive line coach of the New England Patriots, will also be leaving his position due to the league’s Covid-19 protocols. Popovich started with the Patriots in 2015 and moved up from coaching assistant to running backs coach and, most recently, co-offensive line coach. He is set to be replaced by Carmen Bricillo.

While the NFL insists it has not mandated vaccinations, it has placed restrictions on unvaccinated players and coaches as well as potentially imposing penalties for teams or players believed to have caused an outbreak. The league rules make it clear they would prefer everyone get vaccinated. more

  2. I’m all in for making personal decisions.

    I personally have given up on the NFL for years, a sport I used to enjoy watching.
    Being white and privileged, Little did I know I had been persecuting the oppressed $Millionaires.
    Thanks NFL for my enlightenment.

  3. Tom Brady needs to do what Lebron did and take a public stand against this. He is probably the only player that could end it immediately and I can’t believe a guy so into his health has taken it. So if he is just getting an exemption and staying quiet shame on him.

  4. A taste of things to come?
    Will we be having protests against forced vaccination and passports soon?

    I still have to ask why the out of control fear?
    Why the irrational push for vaccinations?
    It has to be more than money.
    It seems to me that the commies are pushing this to get more and more power before the mid term elections next year and the presidential elections of 2024.
    If they can set their takeover in stone we’re done.

  5. They can’t require players to stand for the anthem but can require them to be injected with an experimental vaccine?

    Time to tell them where they can put their shots.

  6. Hey all you unjabbed ballers, Brian Stelter is really getting fed up with your stubborn refusal. I’d mind my P’s & Q’s if I were you.

    If Tom Brady doesn’t speak up then he’s a coward, and is selfish.

  8. @Thirdtwin: The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

    I plan to use it if I don’t get my blood clotting exemption. I will not get the jab, it will kill me.
