Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has fully endorsed Michael Irvin’s comments about the coronavirus vaccine.

Irvin made some waves after he recently questioned whether teams with a bunch of unvaccinated players are focused on winning or not and claimed he’d “fight” an unvaccinated teammate who caused people to miss games.

What does Jones think about his former player’s comments? He was a big fan! According to ProFootballTalk, Jones addressed Irvin’s comments and said, “I thought it was an outstanding message.”

Jerry Jones is a very smart guy, and that’s why this stance surprises me. It’s one thing to talk about getting vaccinated in order to win the Super Bowl, and I think most reasonable people understand that point of view.

However, let’s not pretend like that’s the only thing Irvin said. He suggested fighting unvaccinated guys if there were health issues!

That’s an absolutely insane stance, and Jones shouldn’t have endorsed it.

Players have to make their own medical decisions and having retired former stars talking about fighting is just inflammatory. There’s no need for it at all.
