While it was next to impossible to get all the players at the NFL to follow Covid-19 Protocols, which led to the rescheduling of several games, it seems that now the organizers are serious about getting players to abide by the rules.
Their first move is to get players and support staff to get vaccinated so that they can further safe keep others and leave no chance of malfunction.
As the Minnesota Vikings’ coach had to be fired for being unvaccinated, other players who will get the virus outbreak will have to sit out of the games while getting no pay.
There are certain players who don’t have to be vaccinated, which is why they are standing up against these rules. Deandre Hopkins and Leonard Fournette are one of the few players who are in opposition, which Hopkins going as far as considering retirement to avoid the vaccine.
While the company is looking to enforce no rules on the vaccinated, they will fine the unvaccinated NFL players up to $14,000 in case they end up getting into trouble because of the lack thereof.[Via]
