Vaccination in the sports world

I don't know how many of you watch sports on here. I imagine it's fairly low, but I am a basketball and football fan. It's a bit of a guilty pleasure but oh well. I thought it would make for a good thread as there are some interesting things happening relating to the vaccine. As football season is about to get underway, that seems to be where most of the battles over the vaccine are occurring. Some initial thoughts/insights:

Right now, the NFL is not mandating the vaccine but is applying major pressure to the unvaccinated. To my knowledge, teams are probably around 97/98 percent vaccinated. This week, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach admitted to getting to 100% vaccinated by cutting a few lesser-known unvaccinated players. Of course, most teams are doing this but just aren't admitting it. Quarterback Cam Newton was cut by the New England Patriots today but their coach said his vaccination status was not a factor (right). He is unvaccinated, and to my knowledge there are only three other unvaccinated starting quarterbacks: Lamar Jackson, Kirk Cousins and Carson Wentz (Tom Brady may also be). Lamar Jackson is a superstar and is at no risk of getting cut. Wentz and Cousins are solid but middling, so they have to play really well in order to be safe imo. Cousins is the son of a pastor who has called this what it is, a plandemic, so the media hates him more than anyone. He has also basically outright stated that he will lose his career before getting the vaccine. There are a few superstars at other positions who are resisting: Christian McCaffrey, DeAndre Hopkins and Dalvin Cook come to mind. Cole Beasley, a receiver for the Bills, is a solid player and is the most vocal of all players in not going along with the plandemic. He's a cool dude and who knows, may be a secret lurker on this forum. I'm sure there are many more but I'm just going off recent memory. It will be interesting to see how the season plays out. I admit to getting discouraged about what's going on and sometimes get outright depressed over it, so it is encouraging for me to see people who, at least so far, are willing to put so much on the line to resist this lead-in to the Mark of the Beast.

One other thing that was crazy was the Pittsburgh Steelers for a few practices were requiring that their unvaccinated players wear colored wristbands indicating their unvaccinated status. Nothing fascist there.

One last thing that I'm struggling with is although I don't really have an NFL team I root for, the closest thing would be the Los Angles Chargers, and I understand they were one of the first to be fully vaccinated. It's made it a struggle to continue pulling for them, but maybe that's for the best. I should be ultimately directing my focus more on Christ, so making it harder to root for certain players/teams is kind of a natural way of trending more toward God.

I like sports I was an athlete, I like competition and I know all sports but to actually invest myself into other grown men playing a game has become silly to me. These guys don’t pay my bills and wouldn’t spit on me if I was on fire, it’s just entertainment and nothing more.

Sports is a business and the corporations know there is more to be gained from following the narrative rather than going against it. Don’t look into it any deeper than that.

But that being said I think they are shooting themselves in the foot outing the unvaccinated players, these are the guys on that one meme that are the low iq which refuses the poison and they can’t just shun their stars, especially the colored ones. They’re opening a can of worms they don’t need to open I hope it comes back to bite them.

Yeah for me I will be interested to see how the season plays out. As you said it's just a corporation but being that the employees are public figures, I'm curious to see how it parallels the rest of the corporate world as far as the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

One more thing I should add, I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if a lot of these athletes were just given saline by their docs. Way too much to gain and lose by taking risks with their bodies, for them and the team. If you want to get nefarious with it then you can say they wanted to perpetuate the narrative, saying they all got the “vax” so we should too.

I've been a huge sports fan my whole life and it's one of the things that actually bonds me to my father since we don't eye to eye on many matters. However, my views have changed the last year or two and this covid situation was a driving force in that. My favorite baseball team, the Dodgers, have a vaccine clinic at the stadium where they give people free tickets if they get the vax there. It's crazy when the reality of the situation hits you in the face. The reality being, every sports team is a corporation and henceforth is part of the system. They propagate the lies that the demonic elite are pushing on us. These teams are not our friends. They push lgbt, masking, vaccine requirements and other nefarious things because they know how influential they are.

Going to Dodger Stadium is a really special thing for me since it's how I got close my pops. However, we have to be willing to sacrifice everything for Christ and His Holy Church and entertainment will have to go for many of us.

Don’t let it ruin the memories you have with your father, it’s just about money and they know there is more money to be made pandering to the common narrative.

Yes, you're absolutely right. I just turned thirty and the older I have gotten, the more and more I appreciate him and what he has done for us.

The Brazilian health authorities stopped the Brazil-Argentina match in the World Cup qualifiers, 5 minutes after its start, to arrest 4 players over Covid rules.


What an absolute farce of a world. This is beyond the pale. What an absolute joke of a world we live in. It's disgusting. Everyone seems willing to participate in such a lying farce to destroy their own societies and their own livelihoods. There is no doubt these absolute traitorous scumbags will attempt these same tactics soon to remove people from their own homes based on "health authorities".

Health Officer 1: "4 players haven't met protocol, we need to take action"

Health Officer 2: "ok, let's go to the changing rooms now and w..."

Health Officer 1: "NO! The game is about to start in 30 mins there's no time"

Health Officer 2; "But the rooms are right there, we could jus..."

Health Officer 1: "No! No time... is the game televised?"

Health Officer 2: "Of course, it's a World Cup qualifi..."

Health Officer 1: "Ok...ok... let's wait till they get on the field where everyone can see"

Health Officer 2: * sigh*. .... "Ok.... so..... just as the game starts we stop it?"

Health Officer 1: "No you idiot.... 5 mins in...... i want to watch a little"

I can't believe millionaire soccer players in Europe who know what's up won't find a way around mandatory vaccines.

I think the vast majority would be getting the saline.

Why would clubs risk multi million pound investments to have side effects of a vaccine, when the chances of them having any kind of serious case of covid (if it even exists), as healthy young athletes, is basically nil.

FWIW the NBA wont be enforcing vaccinations, unlike the NFL.

NBA Players Won't Be Required To Receive COVID-19 Vaccination
SEP 14, 2021 2:44 PM

McCollum_CJ_por_210427.jpg

The NBA will be unable to enact a COVID-19 vaccine mandate as the union has messaged that any proposal that mandates vaccination remains a "non-starter."
The NBA and NBPA continue to negotiate aspects of COVID-related protocols and procedures for the upcoming season.
NBA referees and most NBA staff are mandated to be vaccinated.
Roughly 85 percent of players are vaccinated, a league spokesman recently said, and, in a preliminary memo obtained by ESPN in early September.

If the players' union is saying vax mandates are a non-starter, I doubt 85% of players are vaxxed.

Although who knows. They aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.
