And, no doubt the league doesn't want that to happen since that would set a horrible precedent where superstar players can get front office personnel axed. Yeah, Rodgers won't report, and the Packers won't trade him, it's just a matter of who blinks first.
    The owners in the NFL need something like that to happen to keep them honest.

    Those rich, middle-aged white guys need to be reminded that the players are what makes them those stacks of money.

    Not their NFL business ideas. Their non-NFL business stuff, of course, but not their football acumen.

    The NFL is putting its foot down in the vaccination fight. They have announced that any game scrapped because of players testing positive that can't be made will count as forfeits. Article Link.

    Hope this means they're keeping and/or expanding the roster flexibility rules they had last year, assuming so. Also means depth is super-important, but that's always been the case.

    Hopkins and a few others are reconsidering playing over the vaccine policy.

    If Hopkins and others want to walk away because they choose to be stupid and not get vaccinated, see ya! There's no shortage of eager kids and marginal older players chomping at the bit for a shot at replacing them on NFL rosters.

    I hope he reconsiders. Not a Cardinals fan, but he's one of the most exciting players to watch.

    Looks like Rick Dennison is out as Minnesota’s Offensive Line coordinator due to refusing to get vaccinated.

    I am a Cardinals fan, and I've thus far defended his antics...

    But he needs to grow the f*** up and not be a selfish d***, and put his teammates, coaches, and others at risk.

    Hadn't considered whether or not coaches could get the chop for refusing to be vaccinated. You'd think coaches would be more in the way of adults on this issue than players. Guess I was wrong.

    I mean it isn't like he could be surprised. It is plainly spelled out who is REQUIRED to get vaccinated and coaches are in the group. And since he doesn't have an exemption, him getting fired is his own damn fault.

    Its being rumored that Aaron Rodgers will announce his retirement this week since the Packers won't trade him.


    As said before the asking price for Rodgers could cripple a franchise ahead as the Packers will ask for 2-3 1st rd draft picks , possible 2nd rd picks and a pro player. That his price is insane high due to being a reigning NFL MVP.


    edit to add : Rodgers and Devonte Adams (WR) are both not happy with GM Brian Gutekrunst and have both wanted him gone due to his handling of them. Rodgers has nicknamed him Jerry Krause over his handling things. Adams is so pissed right now over getting a low ball offer , its said talks are done after it.

    September 2021 was a hard month. 1st Norm McDonald died and then we learned Disney is ruining Indiana Jones in 2022. Just a hard month to take. Hopefully the film tanks.

    Well, it's not like Rodgers will find himself needing food stamps if he retires. Is this an end around the Packers by sitting out until his contract expires? I'm no expert on this stuff, but doesn't Rodgers' service clock stop by retiring and doesn't start again until he rejoins the team, meaning he can't just wait them out?

    There is a reduction to contract cost post retirement as per the Gronk and Lynch situations.

    Aaron would be a big test on that formula, though.
