While the NFL has not mandated that players get the COVID-19 vaccine, they have come as close to doing so as they possibly can.
The NFL players who are still unvaccinated will be tested for coronavirus every day and be forced to wear masks while traveling and while in team facilities. They will be banned from using the sauna and steam rooms, and they will not be allowed to leave their hotels to go to restaurants. On top of that, social/media/marketing/sponsorship activities will be permitted or them.
Former NFL player Jack Brewer spoke out to slam the NFL for doing this.
“It’s your typical leftist big government move by a league that continues to align itself with that way of thinking,” Brewer told The Daily Wire. “I think it’s obviously absurd and it’s grounded in deceit. If this rule or this messaging was grounded in truth, I think the NFL players are mature enough to be able to take that. And I think if you start talking about what it really should be about, and that’s player safety — at the end of the day the league’s focus should be on player safety.”
“Player safety has everything to do with making sure that the players are protected from the virus and that they have proper health care,” he added. “And the fact is, there has been zero, not a single NFL player, a single professional athlete, has died from the coronavirus. “
Brewer went on to say that athletes in the NFL are young and have not been dying of COVID-19. He also said that “there are countless diseases — illnesses like the flu — that don’t [cause] forfeit. So why are they doing it for this one?”
“It’s wrong, it’s un-American, and I think it resembles the new NFL that is aligning themselves with socialist movements,” he continued. “I don’t agree with it.”
“They’ve treated players like animals from the beginning,” Brewer stated. “Whether it’s the concussion issues, whether a player gets injured on the field, and whether they don’t get guaranteed contracts. It goes back to do you really believe that these NFL players are people? Or are they just like horses in the stable? I think the answers are clear when you see the history of race-norming, and using these racist prehistoric policies to determine the cognitive ability of a player. So they clearly don’t think that the players are intelligent, just based off of that.”
In the end, Brewer feels that the NFL is caving to the left politically.
“It’s straight political,” he lamented. “They’ve already turned into a political arm of the Democratic Party. All of their messaging supports leftist policies from top to bottom. From all of a sudden becoming gay during pride week to backing Black Lives Matter — despite their (BLM’s) all-out assault on the nuclear family and on Christian principles in the nation.”
“The NFL has made it clear where they stand on these social issues and what they want to back,” Brewer added. “They’ve put millions of dollars of advertisement into these social causes to corrupt the minds of our children. And those that look up to players and look up to this league, and those that enjoy the sport, are now forced to take on these leftist policies, and either embrace them or turn the TV off.”
Brewer then slammed the NFL for teaming up with Left-leaning groups and promoting causes that are “destroying Black America.”
“You have to get that fear when you see that the league is aligning themselves with so many of the root cause issues that are destroying Black America,” he said. “When you start talking about sexual perversion of our kids as African-Americans that hits those hard. The largest population of little girls that are sex trafficked are black.”
“When you start talking about aligning yourselves with Black Lives Matter, calling for the destruction of the nuclear family, they are destroying that African-American man,” he continued. “When you see in the streets of Chicago with blood running down them because of the murders in St. Louis and so many places, the National Football League is not standing against issues that are going to help stop that.”
