On Tuesday, a person known as Hub Arkush, who apparently has an NFL MVP vote, introduced that he wouldn’t vote for Aaron Rodgers. Arkush admits that Rodgers is the MVP, however says he can’t vote for a “bad guy.” You can learn Arkush’s full feedback right here.
Arkush blames Rodgers’ offseason antics for his poll disqualification. However, everybody is aware of why this loser journalist is upset with Rodgers. Like his friends, Arkush can’t recover from that Rodgers selected to not get vaccinated towards COVID-19.
We all know that’s the explanation. And Rodgers was first to say it. Here was Rodgers’ response to Arkush’s feedback on Wednesday:
Most Valuable *Vaccinated Player lol

While an important line, he’s proper. More voters than simply Arkush will vote for the award as if it means the Most Valuable Vaccinated Player. Maybe Joe Burrow is the man, in spite of everything?
I wrote about this actual situation a month ago, about how sportswriters would maintain Rodgers’ vaccination standing towards his MVP case. In sum:
The checklist of NFL MVP voters is mainly comprised of the identical blue-checks who spent greater than seven days portray Rodgers because the soccer equal of the BTK Killer. The voter checklist, which you’ll find right here, contains Peter King and writers from USA Today, ProFootballTalk, and NBC.
These NFL MVP voting journalists are an extension of the mainstream press, a bunch as shallow and unimpressive as they’re. So you’ll be able to anticipate them to work tirelessly with their sources on social media to re-shape the narrative in order that they will keep away from voting for Rodgers for MVP. After all, these individuals have trade Super Bowl events to attend with their three-letter brokers.
Sports media guys are already gearing up with excuses to disqualify Rodgers. After all, Mike Florio satisfied them that the nation ought to mercilessly punish anybody who opts not for the COVID vaccine, and so they’ll do something however disobey orders from their sports activities media leaders. So they’ll assault Rodgers the person to keep away from voting for Rodgers the participant.
Rodgers used the phrase draconian and (gasp) cited MLK. Bring out the guillotine.
Worst of all, the sports activities media has purposely misled its viewers into believing that Rodgers had damage his staff by selecting to not get vaccinated.
Rodgers missed 10 days, the NFL’s earlier mandate for unvaccinated constructive gamers, however only one sport. Official NFL knowledge exhibits that totally vaccinated constructive gamers not often examined out of protocols earlier than the 10-day mark underneath the previous protocols. Moreover, Rodgers examined constructive on a Wednesday. And OutKick’s Dr. Chao exhibits, of the 31 gamers who examined constructive on Wednesday, just one — 1! — examined out of protocols earlier than Sunday.
So it wouldn’t have mattered if Rodgers had been vaccinated or not. He would have missed that very same one sport towards the Chiefs. Further, the Packers clinched the NFC’s high seed final week, negating the implications of that one regular-season loss.
Rodgers’ vaccination standing didn’t damage his staff in any respect. Anyone who says in any other case is mendacity or very confused.
