Worked in clinical research for a few years and was required to get vaccinated for Hep B to work in the hospital and had to wear masks and other PPE when I approached patients on the chemo therapy floor. I was paid 28K annually and felt those were totally reasonable precautions considering the financial security the job offered.
Since these guys are so invested in these principles, I'm sure they will be happy to pursue an alternative career that allows them to live their truth and certainly won't throw tantrums about their workplace dictating certain health choices given the relevance of those choices to the sustainability of said workplace
I got the hep b vaccine voluntarily a few years ago when there was an outbreak among the homeless, I’m not homeless I was just like “fuck it, I’ll add it to my collection.” I fucking live vaccines. This is realistically the only superpower I’ll ever acquire.
That concussion factory isn't doing anyone's IQ any favors
haha CTE go brrrr
*doesn’t take a life saving vaccine*
>bro this is so unfair y u bully me?
Lol. Pretty much
"I don't want to hurt my team, I just want to risk getting them sick and die"
Even just selfishly, he wants to be able to catch an incredibly transmissible disease, which will put him out of work for weeks, possibly months, possibly KILL him, or impair him permanently. He refuses to protect his health intelligently and is thus letting his team down.
Love how he says “partake” like it’s something you try at a wine tasting 🙄
Or a bowl being passed
Covid and this crowd really did kill a few of my “heros”. I wanted DHop to succeed, now he’s just an idiot.
It’s been over a year since John Prine died of Covid. Sigh.
Now just imagine your team is the human race
There's always the XFL, Hop.
RIP Cup Snake
Then quit, ho. There's always another player to take your place.
It's like you don't even care about my fantasy football team. 😒
People always seem surprised when pro athletes are dumb as rocks. Even in the nfl where everyone "went to college" we all know they ain't there to play school.
The concussions certainly don’t help
To exactly nobody's surprise, this tweet is gone
“Partake in the vaccine”
God this dude is dumb as rocks
Dude was dumb enough to trash hotel room one week before the draft. Clearly his ability to think forward is limited.
As a HUGE nfl fan, I liked Hopkins, to the point where I re-watched his old tapes to refine my football skills, but this tweet made me lose a lot of respect for him.
It’s all good, this man don’t give a fuck about u lol
The NFL will punish teams that have unvaccinated people with the coronavirus more harshly than those who had coronavirus break through vaccines if it affects the schedule. Before vaccines, everyone had the same standard of protocol; now, it is harsher for the unvaccinated. Therefore, someone who is unvaccinated from what passes for principle has to make choices; football is a team sport.
Choices have consequences, but a lot of these guys haven’t faced any of those since someone figured out they could play so….
THIS. One hundred times.
How about this? The NFL should require all its players to be vaccinated. Or be fired.
I understand people being hesitant, especially people of color. However, this reeks of selfishness. Especially saying this in response to the stiff punishment the NFL has said it will hand out.
Just talk to a doctor, man. And a reputable one at that.
Concern is fine. But it's been out almost 9 months.
There's been plenty of time to get the facst.
So hard to unstupid stupid
“Never thought I would say this. But being put in a position to put my kids who can’t be vaccinated in danger because my selfish teammate doesn’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL.”
I just love how he says "partake in the vaccine" with the same energy as "sippin on sizzurp"
Got to love the wording 'partake in the vaccine' to downplay what he's doing. It's like saying 'I refuse to partake in sober driving', you're not refusing to join in with some club everyone else agreed to, you're just being a stubborn arsehole and endangering other people. Stop playing victim.
I bet supplements are a part of his daily diet and those are barely regulated. He'll believe some random assortment of powders but from a jug but not something actual scientist are working on to fight a real virus that's really killing people.
Buck up little camper, whats being in a team if you wont be a team player?
I’m not sure why he’d be hesitant…he catches everything else… What makes him think this would be any different?
Man, this sucks. I always liked him.
Bout to be a whole lot of fantasy football players potentially pissed off when he has to miss games bc of the protocol
Oh no! Anyways, no one cares. Retire then.
$54M < Remaining Unvaccinated
He would rather recluse from society than get a fucking vaccine??
It is almost like there are consequences for your decisions when you are an adult.
Hopefully he took more than basket weaving in college.
Pro athletes are one of the easiest ways for a corporation to reach voters without actually having to put their brand in the mix.
Dude you got out of Houston. Yea it wasn’t Tampa for a miracle Brady year, but that place is a dumpster fire.
Take your shot because you certainly don’t bitch about the strip club booze and coke.
The problem is these pro atheletes are mostly in their 20's and 30's and they get their educations on Social Media! If I was the league I would have a reputable doctor sit with them and explain the importance of the vaccine with them one on one. Let them ask questions. Educate them on how the vaccine works, what's in it, etc. Maybe then they would realize Bubba from Twitter might actually not know what he is talking about!
Honestly I'm surprised more teams haven't done this sort of thing. But then i wonder how many teams are owned/coached by anti-vaxxers
Don't let the door hit you on the way out. ✌️
These guys are really being put to the test. They are expected to play through sprains, concussions and broken bones. Its tough to say they don’t want to take a prick in the arm to have a normal team meeting.
What a fucking moron
Then leave you selfish prick
Darn I wish I hadn’t seen this, my favorite receiver :(
He just doesn’t want the vaccine because it will make him unable to catch something.
Cole Beasly *heavy breathing*
Millions of dead people would like to have a word with you.
If you're calling this conjecture you're either illiterate or aren't actually looking at it
There is a first amendment, but it doesn't mean people can't call you out for being an ignorant douchebag
I'm not going to pander to someone who has yet to actually try to prove me wrong. Everything you've said comes from a politician or your own ass, if you've got evidence from a published scientific article, I'd love to see it. I'll actually take the time to read it. But don't parade yourself around like some enlightened fuck because you trust your tik tok politicians over science.
You're looking real dumb rn
Age demographics, hard data, graphs, pretty colors, big words, plenty of things for you and your hightened intellect to admire
This is like the 5th time I've sent the same scientific study after you've claimed that it's missing something that it's not.
If you dont want to bother looking at it why don't you just stop before you make yourself more of a clown
Go play pro football somewhere else, then.
That this makes him question his place in the NFL and not his stance on vaccines is really fucking impressive. I know these guys don't have time for too much reading and self education between dog fights, spousal abuse and training but good god this is some ignorance.
Aww poor wealthy ball chasing baby is scared of the big boy shot :(
Once in a blue moon redditors almost transform into self aware creatures. Almost.
