The NFL has another mess on its hands.
The league bungled the anti-American anthem protests that killed the brand for five years.
Now NFL players are furious about what the league is forcing them to do.
The establishment is doing everything it can to force near-universal vaccination.
Throughout the entirety of the pandemic, the corporate press has promoted absurd levels of hysteria.
And the propaganda is only getting worse.
Public health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci are pushing for everyone to get vaccinated regardless of whether or not they’ve had COVID-19.
But available data suggests people who’ve already had the virus have natural immunity that’s as good or better than the vaccine.
With a vaccination rate around 50%, the establishment has abandoned “the carrot” in favor of “the stick,” meaning there will be consequences for opting not to take the vaccine.
Many NFL players are quickly finding that out.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley and Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill are learning that the league is serious about coercing vaccination.
Tannehill relented and got the vaccine, saying:
“I’m currently in the (vaccination) process right now…The NFL has kind of made it clear what they want to happen. If you don’t fall in line, they’re going to make your life miserable with all the protocols.”
Not only must players who test positive for COVID sit out for ten days, but their teams will have to forfeit if they have too many COVID-positive players.
This makes no sense because vaccinated people can still test positive for COVID while exhibiting minor symptoms.
Beasley has taken a hardline stance against the vaccine, and he’s stated his reasons why.
He stated his position during a press conference:

Some teammates have been supportive of his stance, but others have not.
In response to former NFL defensive back Darius Butler, Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes tweeted:
Sooo the top scientists in the entire world got together to figure out how to combat Covid-19. And when they came up with a vaccine, you question them. They are trying to save lives and you have doubt😳😳

Beasley also balked at the notion that the team could cut him for his COVID position.
“Yea cutting arguable [sic] the best slot in the league is wise. Especially when the slot is such a significant role in this offense.”
Beasley and other players have suggested they might have to retire due to the draconian protocols.
Whatever happens, the NFL has a mess on its hands with the revelation that vaccinated individuals can test positive for COVID and transmit the virus at the same rate.
