NFL Legend Terry Bradshaw Blasts Aaron Rodgers for Lying About Being Vaccinated Against Covid-19
Last week, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tested position for Covid-19. Not only that, but the world also discovered that Rodgers has not been vaccinated for Covid-19. This was not a “breakthrough” case.
In August, Rodgers led many people to believe that he was fully vaccinated for Covid-19 because, when asked about his vaccination status, he said he was “immunized.” Now we know that vaccinated and immunized are not the same thing.
Per league rules, since he is unvaccinated for Covid-19, Rodgers is required to quarantine for 10 days, and he is complying with this rule just like he has complied with the other rules unvaccinated players must follow.
On The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers explained that the league knew that he was not vaccinated, and he described some of the rules that he has had to follow as an unvaccinated person. These rules include wearing a mask during workouts, social distancing, testing for Covid every morning, and wearing a yellow wristband to indicate that he is not vaccinated.
Even though the league and his teammates clearly knew that he was not vaccinated, Rodgers’ vaccination status must have been a big surprise for Pro Football Hall of Fame member Terry Bradshaw. Bradshaw hosts “FOX NFL Sunday,” and this past Sunday, Bradshaw called Rodgers a liar.
Sunday’s show was filmed at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and Bradshaw spoke to the Naval audience saying, “It would have been nice if he’d just come to the Naval Academy and learned how to be honest. Learned not to lie.”
Watch the video below to hear Bradshaw call Rodgers a liar for yourself and to see a clip from The Pat McAfee Show where Rodgers explained his side of the story.
As mentioned in the video above, Rodgers is allergic to an ingredient in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. On The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers explained that the CDC’s website says that you shouldn’t get the vaccine if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients. He ruled out the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because of concerns about side effects.
Rodgers said, “I’m not some sort of anti-vax flat-Earther. I’m somebody who’s a critical thinker.” He added, “I believe strongly in bodily autonomy, and the ability to make choices for your body.” Rodgers went on to explain that he educated himself about Covid-19 and the available vaccines during the off-season. Only then did he decide not to get vaccinated.
Were you surprised to find out that Aaron Rodgers has not been vaccinated for Covid-19? Were you surprised to find out that the league and his teammates knew that he was unvaccinated?
