The National Football League plans to operate as normal as possible for the upcoming 2021 season and told teams they would forfeit games and lose money if Covid outbreaks occur due to unvaccinated players.
Jonathan Feliciano is a man who is clearly not a fan of it.
The Buffalo Bills football guard took to Twitter and did not mince any words when speaking about Anthony Fauci and the virus as a whole.
Check it out:
“It’s been proven that COVID was made in lab. Fauci also a part of Pfizer. that’s why ppl don’t want to get the vaccine. Sad to come to the realization that you can not trust the government. #dontshootthemessenger”
“Because ppl want to clout chase and feel important for 10 min until they get off Twitter and go back to their mundane life”
If games are moved or canceled due to unvaccinated individuals, teams and players could also face financial penalties.
The NFLPA sent out a memo of its own on Thursday, reminding players “if games were missed because of a COVID-19 outbreak, nobody would have gotten paid.”
On the team front, “the club experiencing the outbreak will be responsible for all additional expenses incurred by the opposing team and will also be required to pay any shortfall between actual and expected payment to the VTS (visiting team’s share) pool.” In addition, clubs that suffer forfeits will have losses attached to their record, threatening postseason chances.
“In light of the substantial roster flexibility in place for the 2021 season, absent medical considerations or government directives, games will not be postponed or rescheduled simply to avoid roster issues caused by injury or illness affecting multiple players, even within a position group,” the memo said.
