Aaron Rodgers just been fined by the National Football League for violating the league’s COVID-19 protocols … and the Green Bay Packers have also been knocked out.
The NFL fined Rodgers $ 14,650 for attending a Halloween party with other Packers when he was not vaccinated. Protocols prohibit non-vaxxed players from attending large gatherings outside of team facilities.
Packers Receiver Allen Lazard, who is also unvaccinated, also received $ 14,650 for attending the team-sanctioned Halloween party.
The big fine came for the Packers… the franchise was hit with a $ 300,000 penalty for failing to enforce the rules with Rodgers and Lazard, including failing to wear face coverings inside the facility of the team.
As we reported … Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 last Wednesday, later admitting he was not vaccinated.
The QB star claimed he was allergic to something in the Pfizer and Moderna injections… and did not want to take the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, saying he feared unwanted side effects.
Friday, AR said Pat McAfee he took ivermectin – among other treatments – after chatting with a friend Joe rogan.
Rodgers missed last Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, a game his team lost. The future Hall of Famer will likely have the chance to return to the pitch this weekend.
Don’t feel too bad for Aaron … he can afford the fine. He is in the 2nd year of a 4-year contract worth $ 134 million.
Our sincere thanks to
