Honestly, Aaron Rodgers should get the $14,650 in pennies and ship it right to Roger Goodell. I’m assuming the fine is automatically deducted from his paycheck, but the pennies idea is still hilarious to me.
People demanding Aaron Rodgers be banned from the NFL are idiots.

Turns out expressing any kind of skepticism or endorsing Joe Rogan is strictly prohibited by the clowns in the sports media!
Aaron Rodgers says he’s listening to Joe Rogan’s advice on how to battle COVID-19 and he’s also taking Ivermectin.

Now that Rodgers and the Packers have been fined, can we all just move on and get back to football as usual? Who the hell cares about this so much that they’re trying to ruin Rodgers life?
I hate the Packers, but on this issue, I 100% believe Rodgers should be free to do whatever he wants.
The media is flipping out because Aaron Rodgers is unvaccinated.

It’s not your business what people do with their medical choices and to act otherwise is simply arrogant and foolish.
