NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience and didn't hold back when it comes to criticizing the approach the NFL took to the COVID vaccinations.
While appearing on the podcast August 27th, Rodgers admitted to being misleading about his vaccination status to the media. He also ripped the NFL for their forceful approach to getting the vaccination.
The Green Bay Packers called the NFL out for "virtue signaling" and sending "stooges" to force the vaccination.
“Look how righteous our league is, we have 95% compliance with the vaccine,” Rodgers said. “If you don’t, we’re going to send a stooge to your team to show you graphs of your vaccination percentage of your team compared to the rest of the league, which actually happened.”
“Day three of training camp they sent this stooge in and he showed these slides of what your vaccination percentage was as a team. What are you compared to the rest of the league? And I started asking him question about liability. ‘Oh, I’m not a lawyer,'” Rodgers continued.
“You’re in here talking about these different things and you don’t talk about anybody’s personal health issues,” he said. “There’s zero exemptions, you took out religious exemptions, you took out PEG exemptions, you took out anybody’s ability to have an opinion of I don’t want to do this.”

Aaron Rodgers has been one of the few NFL players who has stood up about his stance on the vaccine. He first did so during his weekly appearance on the Pat McAfee show.
An NFL superstar is as in tune with his body as anyone and the mainstream media likes to pretend they know more about getting vaccinated than the doctors of Aaron Rodgers.
