Aaron Rodgers gets fined: $14,560.

The Green Bay Packers are paying the price of allowing Aaron Rodgers and potentially others to openly violate COVID-19 protocols.

The NFL fined the Packers $300,000 on Tuesday after reviewing the team's COVID-19 protocols, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. The league is also reportedly fining Rodgers and wide receiver Allen Lazard $14,560 each.

Packers president Mark Murphy accepted the sanctions in a statement released via Demovsky:

[quote] We respect the League's findings and we recognize the importance of adherence to the COVID protocols to keep our team and organization safe and healthy. We will continue to educate the team regarding the importance of the protocols and remain committed to operating within the protocols.

Any further protocol violations could result in increased discipline for the Packers, including a loss of draft picks.

The NFL's review found Rodgers and Lazard to have attended a Halloween party despite being unvaccinated, according to Mark Maske of The Washington Post. The pair were also reportedly found to be noncompliant with their mask-wearing, something the public is already well aware of.

Rodgers and the Packers have been under fire basically since the moment it was reported Rodgers was out due to COVID-19 protocols for last weekend's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Rodgers was designated as out early enough that he had to be unvaccinated, even though he had said he was "immunized" before the season, met with reporters without a mask (a protocol violation) and made no attempt to correct the record about his supposed vaccination. Lazard, who is also unvaccinated, was placed on the COVID-19 list as a close contact last month. He returned to the team days later.

Amid a torrent of criticism, Rodgers attempted to explain himself during an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" last week, but only ended up damaging his reputation further. The reigning MVP complained of being "in the crosshairs of the woke mob," insisted the science of his homeopathic treatment was sound, cited Joe Rogan for much of his information and basically compared himself to Martin Luther King Jr.

The NFL bristled at one claim in particular made by Rodgers, who said a league doctor had told him it is impossible for a vaccinated person to contract COVID-19. The league released a statement hours after the interview asserting none of its doctors had spoken with Rodgers at all, much less told him such an obviously wrong piece of information.

Rodgers would later make a repeat appearance on Tuesday, saying he took "full responsibility" for comments perceived to be misleading and shrugging off any further criticism.

Pfft.

That's pocket change to him.

They might as well have fined him $5.

Same difference.

He's feeling more than a $15K loss, don't even worry. His image took a huge hit meaning endorsement deals will look much different for him moving forward. If anything, this whole scandal (if you want to call it that) has helped the world see the true Aaron Rodgers. He's a lying, hot-headed phony, pure and simple.

So in other words, the NFL doesn't give a shit about lying about your vaccination, endangering the health and lives of others, and falsifying information.

Got it.

Corporate America is so FULL OF SHIT.

I wonder how the players who have to play him in a few days feel about this? He's still gonna have Covid breath. Hope they knock the shit out of him.

by Anonymousreply 7November 10, 2021 2:59 PM

What an asshole. You know, I always kind of liked him. I am amused by the DL gay rumours. I liked that he was the first and highest profile NFL player to state that Kaepernick was ostracized because of his activism.

But then he lied about his vaccination status, put fans and everyone he works with at risk, and was so smug and dismissive about it. Maybe that little scorned twink was right about him being a sociopath.

[quote] Fans Mock Absurdity Of Aaron Rodgers' Punishment For COVID-19 Violations

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was fined a mere $14,650 for breaking the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols on Tuesday, ESPN reported. The light penalty outraged many football observers, one of whom correctly pointed out that another player was fined more for having his jersey untucked.

The NFL sanctioned Rodgers, who finally admitted last week that he’s unvaccinated, for going maskless at press conferences and occasionally among teammates, and for attending a Halloween party. Packers receiver Allen Lazard was also cited and fined the same amount.

Rodgers’ COVID carelessness went much further than that. The quarterback ― one of the NFL’s biggest stars ― misleadingly answered that he was “immunized” when a reporter asked his vaccination status in August.

When he came clean about it following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis that caused him to miss last week’s game, he launched into a doubt-casting, fact-defying explanation for his vaccine resistance. He said he was being pursued by a “woke mob” and was a “critical thinker” who was taking the unproven anti-parasite drug ivermectin as part of his process to “immunize.”

People on Twitter took shots at the NFL’s weak punishment of Rodgers, whose four-year contract pays him about $33.5 million per season.

Perhaps he got fined that amount because after reviewing the tapes, they found he mostly obeyed NFL safety protocols and his only infraction was not wearing a mask at all times.

R18 Nope, it's perfectly logical. You can't enforce a set of rules for one subset and not another. If you maximize the punishment for Rodger's behavior, then many more millions will be impacted.

R19, you really are fucking stupid. The same people (including me) who think Rodgers should not only be fined but should at least be fucking suspended for the rest of the season (and then hopefully retire and never been heard from again) are the people who also think the people refusing to be vaccinated SHOULD be fucking fired. We want harsh punishments for all these ignorant assholes. Your "logic" is literally backwards.

R24 Vaccine mandates are not legal. The issue is still being litigated. Your opinion is not relevant.

by Anonymousreply 25November 11, 2021 1:05 AM

Any type of mandate that does pass will most likely include a different set of safety protocols for unvaccinated individuals. There will be some companies that will refuse to accommodate unvaccinated employees but they will likely see some backlash.

If others feel as strongly about this issue as you do, they would threaten to quit their jobs unless all companies refuse accommodations for unvaccinated. I don't see that happening.

So Shailene Woodley is defending his dick. Bets are on that they are not an item after the NFL season ends. Then this starts out a whole new cycle that we all know. He dumps her say April or May, and then "he's too busy with football" till training camp and then the 2022 NFL season. He gets another year with excuses. To think they would get married is laughable, let alone she know what his dick looks like.

But this lying sack of shit really put himself in the shithouse now. So he is going to try to get a plan together so he can be rehabbed in the public eye. Look for a completely different Aaron after the Superbowl. He is in desperate need of a public image makeover and he will not be able to get a beard at all even if he wants to because of how fucking toxic he is.

I thought it was a fake relationship and Shailene was frantically trying to distance herself from Aaron and trying to get out of the contract. But after her insane rant that embarrassed herself, I think maybe this relationship is real. Why else would she ruin her career with her rant about his dick size? It made her look really really bad and unstable. Someone in a contract would not be this invested, especially to the detriment of their own reputation.
