The NFL season is about to be underway.
The league is hoping to have a season that’s relatively scandal-free for a change.
But one Hall of Famer said something about Aaron Rodgers that will leave you stunned.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won his fourth MVP award, but the media was far more interested in something else he did last year: he refused to take the COVID vaccine.
Rodgers refused to take the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after it was recalled, and he was allergic to ingredients in the mRNA vaccines.
When Rodgers was asked about his vaccination status, he said he was “immunized” because he took a homeopathic treatment.
And the media lost its collective mind when it was later revealed that Rodgers was not vaccinated.
In the long run, Rodgers turned out to be correct about his skepticism over the vaccine because it does not prevent the spread of COVID, something that doctors had been saying for over a year but were ignored.
Rodgers discussed his experience on Joe Rogan’s podcast, which further inflamed the press.
And Shannon Sharpe, a Hall of Fame tight end and current co-host of the Fox Sports talk show Undisputed, called Rodgers a “prick” for disobeying the authoritarian COVID regime.
During a ridiculous rant, Sharpe said, “[A]s a person, he’s a horrible person. He’s a liar. He’s arrogant. He’s aloof. For lack of a better word, he’s a prick, and I am so over him…This was done. Nobody was even talking about Aaron Rodgers, and what he lied about last year or what he deliberately misled about. He went on there to rehash that because he wants to thumb his nose, ‘I did that, NFL, and I’d do it again.’”

It’s unbelievable how angry people get when others don’t take a vaccine that does not stop the spread of a virus.
But the COVID regime has attempted to bully everyone into compliance.
During Rodgers’s appearance, he and Rogan began discussing how people would respond to having their businesses shut down and their lives ruined.
Rogan said, “As far as compensation for all of those people that were forced to close their businesses and keep their doors shuttered and lost everything they had worked for decades to build — no, they’re just going to be angry.”
Rodgers replied, “So what do you tell those people?”
Rogan fired back, “Vote Republican.”
Rodgers laughed, and Rogan explained, “That’s what a lot of them are going to do anyway…I hope there’s lessons learned in this because this is a new thing…We had never had this before. No one that was alive today had ever experienced a true pandemic and I’m hoping that now that this is over, people are going to recognize that some serious errors were made and not repeat those.”
Sharpe and other members of the media were furious that Rodgers brought up the issue again because they wanted everyone to ignore the fact that they demonized a significant portion of the population for not taking an experimental vaccine.
But Rodgers showed that people have not forgotten what the COVID regime did to them.
