I think it is so the others that are not vaccinated don't get it.
from what i understand even if you are vacinated you can get the rona.....the symptoms arent supposed to be as bad.  :scratch: :scratch:

i agree with JB, lets let people make there own decisions, but unfortunetly its not happening that way.  :doah: sooner or later, somehow or another the powers to be will and are trying to force everyone to get it.


The fact that it affects others is why they are trying to protect people by requiring it.  AND it will affect the bottom line which is money for the NFL.

So in a sense what they are saying is that the vaccine doesn't work. Because if a no vaccinated person gets covid then they will give it to the vaccinated teams members. Then what's the point of getting vaccinated. Just don't understand why there is such a push for those that don't want it to get it. This has just gotten all f$_&ked up!

Heard on the radio last night that one of the vaccines MAY require a third shot. Kinda reminds me of a rookie mechanic. "My truck won't run right, ok let change the plugs, I'm 99% sure that will fix it. If not we can do the fuel pump then the injectors. If that doesn't get you up and going I have a new crate motor in the back we will drop in."

I don't condemn anybody, 25 year old athletes or 75 year old geezers who doesn't want a shot that was rushed to market that may or may not be 100% effective & safe.

Just read that when Carson Palmer wanted out of a situation he retired.  His Rep was this Dunn guy.  Now Dunn is Rodgers Rep.  It also said Rodgers has one team in mind and it is the Broncos.

:tut: There isn't ANY vaccines that are 100% effective & safe. Never has been & never will be!! There will always be some with underlying health issues, known & unknown to even them perhaps, that have adverse reactions to certain medicines. Never been 1 that is 100% effective either, even my Shingles shot earlier this year was ONLY 96.8 % effective after the 2nd shot. It's still a free country, I think :scratch:, people can & will do what they wish.

For now. But I don't think it is going to stay that way. The gubmint is going to force companies to make it mandatory at some point I think. Which will really get messed up then.

They needed to make room for the new wide receiver they signed.

I don't know if they picked him because the felt the gunshot wounds would affect his performance or they felt he didn't have a chance of making the team as a 6th rounder - or maybe both.

But at least this way, but cutting him early, he and his agent have a chance to find a new team for him.

Since we don't have a Packers thread...
And I'm not saying we need one...
But since it does affect the Vikes...

Y'all have seen Aaron Rodgers is coming back for what looks to be one more year...

And one of the conditions was that they bring back Randal Cobb.

I'm sure there were some Vikes fans who would have just as soon seen Rodgers gone, but it looks like they are getting the band back together for one, "Last Dance"

Yes, they probably should have.

And if it was two years ago, they might have.

But for the last two seasons the Packers had great play-off runs and Rodgers was league MVP last year.  The Packer's "window" to win now is still open.

If all they need to do is to kiss Rodgers' :moon:, promise to trade him after next season, and acquire Cobb this year for one more legit shot at a superbowl...

Why not?   :confused:  They got nothing to lose.

Like a store front in a bad neighborhood the Packers Super Bowl window has bars on the window by the name of Tom Brady.

SO now the unvaccinated QB's which includes Cousins are quarantined I believe.  They are trying out a St. Johns QB for the second time and everyone talks highly of him.  Cousins hasn't revealed in the past if he got the shot or not.  Now we know.  What a joke that is.  SO he could be out at any time because of it.  Others too could take this team down because of it.  Mond has been vaccinated too.

When their choices negatively effect a team of millionaires they may need to get in another line of work.  Noone on the team gets paid if they have to cancel due to covid.

My point is that the NFL didn't need to impose these  :bs: rules to try and force people to do something that they don't want to do. Made it all thru all last season without a vaccine. All the players are young and healthy not a high risk group.

They did have to reschedule some games because of it.  To me it is not political at all.  Just self preservation.

A letter to each player stating if they choose not to be vaccinated they will be put on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list until they are compliant or they are released. Many have performance clauses that require they are on the field. It now becomes their choice as to how much their contract means to them.

For the record......I don't care who plays or doesn't play. It's a game being played by people who have never worked a normal job a day in their life.

The new playoff structure along with the 17 game schedule makes rescheduling much more difficult, so they'll now forfeit that game. Only gonna cost 'em $50,825 on avg/per game, just pocket change for these guys. :doah: Or is it? :scratch:

The Minnesota Vikings released cornerback Jeff Gladney on Tuesday following an indictment by a Dallas grand jury on a charge of felony assault connected to an April incident involving a 22-year-old woman.

"As we have previously said, we take these matters very seriously and condemn all forms of domestic violence," the Vikings said in a statement. "Due to the ongoing legal nature of this matter, we are unable to provide further comment."

Gladney, 24, turned himself in to Dallas police on April 5 on a warrant for family violence assault, a third-degree felony. He was charged by a grand jury on Thursday with family violence by impeding breath.

A woman identified as Jane Doe filed a civil lawsuit against Gladney on July 26, saying that Gladney physically assaulted, beat and held her against her will "for several hours" on April 1, then attempted to "bribe, threaten, blackmail and manipulate" her not to speak about the incident.

"Obviously, allegations like these are very disturbing and something thatís concerning to us as ownership and to our organization," team president Mark Wilf told reporters earlier Tuesday.

A native of New Boston, Texas, Gladney went to college at TCU in Fort Worth. He was drafted No. 31 by Minnesota in 2020.

Assuming he is found guilty they will suspend him. Once he serves his time Jerry Jones will sign him as another rehab project.
