The Fox Sports NFL Crew on Aaron Rodgers

In case you don’t follow sports, the big story last week is that Green Bay Packers star quarterback — a sure-thing Hall-of-Famer who is still playing terrific football — Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 and was ineligible to play. (The Packers lost to the Chiefs 13-7.)

Rodgers was not vaccinated, but he had strongly suggested before the season that he was, talking about being “immunized”. But his version of “immunization” was just a bunch of homeopathic quackery.

I think it would be easy for the NFL commentators on TV to dance around this, given the subject’s (sadly utterly irrational) political volatility. Maybe especially so at Fox Sports. But Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long, Michael Strahan, and particularly Terry Bradshaw absolutely eviscerated Rodgers.

More like this, please.
