NFL: Covid Outbreaks Among Unvaccinated Players Will Result in Forfeit of Game and Loss of Pay

Several unvaccinated NFL players are standing their ground against this clear discriminatory assault against their freedoms.


The NFL is taking a hard stance against any player who dares not get the experimintal Covid injection.

According to a new memo just released by the league, teams with unvaccinated players will have to forfeit games if an outbreak occurs within their ranks.

Morseo, if such a game cannot be rescheduled, BOTH teams will not be paid for it.

This is clearly an attempt by the NFL to pressure teams into cutting ties with any players who choose not to get the experimental injection.

Several players are already questioning their futures in the league.

Many of them are holding their ground despite being targeted with this discriminatory assault on their freedoms.

Fox News has more on this divisive and discriminatory mandate by the NFL:

The NFL is continuing to come down hard on unvaccinated players as a new memo released Thursday states that teams could potentially forfeit a game due to a COVID-19 outbreak amongst unvaccinated players.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the memo, obtained by The Associated Press, that the league does not intend to add another week to accommodate games that cannot be rescheduled due to an outbreak.

"As we learned last year, we can play a full season if we maintain a firm commitment to adhering to our health and safety protocols and to making needed adjustments in response to changing conditions," he said.

"If a game can’t be rescheduled and is canceled due to a COVID outbreak among non-vaccinated players on one of the competing teams, the team with the outbreak will forfeit and will be deemed to have played 16 games for purposes of draft, waiver priority, etc."

In addition to forfeiting, if a game can’t be made up in the 18-week schedule, players on both teams will not be paid for the game.

This is clearly an attempt by the NFL to pressure teams into removing unvaccinated players entirely.

Some players, such as DeAndre Hopkins, are now qustioning their futures in the league:

Our friends at the New York Post have more on  what the Arizona wide reciever had to say of the league's new policy:

Some of the NFL’s star players aren’t exactly on board with the league’s new COVID-19 forfeit rules.

On Thursday, NFL Network shared a memo from the league telling teams that games cannot be rescheduled due to a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players, and that teams will be forced to forfeit games with playoff seeding — and paycheck — implications.

Some players were quick to voice their opinions on the matter.

“Never thought I would say this, but being put in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL,” Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins wrote in a quickly deleted tweet.

Hopkins cited in another since-deleted post his girlfriend’s brother, who the wideout says got the vaccine and “had heart problems right after.”

Neither the league nor the NFL Players Association have mandated vaccines for players, instead agreeing to protocols that restrict the activities of players who have not received one.

A reported 78 percent of NFL players have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination shot, according to the league.
