T.J. Ward has zero sympathy for Ron Rivera.
On Tuesday, Rivera did not hold back when he shared his feelings about the COVID-19 vaccination numbers among the players on the Washington Football Team. He said on Tuesday he feels “beyond frustrated.”
“I think it’s frustrating. Especially in the fact that last year we were the No. 1 team against COVID,” Rivera said. “Our players took the challenge of staying inside the bubble, doing the things the right way and for the most part, you know we only had two situations. Both of them were guys who weren’t on the active 53, so it turned out to be a positive for us, as far as being COVID free. And now for whatever reason we have some reluctance to do that, to get the vaccine.”
T.J. Ward couldn’t care less about his complaints as he took to Twitter to completely disrespect him.
“Just park the Riverboat. His health is beyond that of COVID. Maybe it’s time to let it go.”
“Don’t blame the players for your life long health decisions”
“At some point you gotta pay for them vices. Cancer runs in my family like many American families. But also bad diets and cigarettes do as well. Except responsibility.Don’t blame and be disappointed in your 23 year olds cus they have they own bodies and opinions about there health”
Just last week, NFL informed the teams it would enforce forfeits if an outbreak occurred among unvaccinated players and the game could not be rescheduled. Additionally, the league told ESPN’s Jenna Laine that it will fine unvaccinated players $14,650 any time they violate COVID-19 procedures this season.
“I hope we can get to these guys, get them to understand really it’s not just for them, but it’s for the people around them,” Rivera said Tuesday. “And that’s the thing that I think hopefully will get their attention is it’s not just about them, but the folks around them. … It is everybody’s choice, everybody’s decision, but you just hope they all fall in line and understand what’s at stake. I’m truly frustrated, I’m beyond frustrated.”
