(LifeSiteNews) – NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers told podcaster Joe Rogan that the league sent a “stooge” to strongly coerce players to get the experimental COVID injections, which have been linked to serious health issues with the cardiovascular system.
Rodgers, who plays for the Green Bay Packers, made the comments this past Saturday during an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience.
According to Rodgers, the NFL was looking for a “95 percent compliance” rate for the COVID jabs and wanted to send a “virtue signal” to the world that it had a high take-up rate for the injections.
For those not following the recommendations, Rodgers said, the league was “gonna send a stooge to your team to show you graphs of your vaccination percentage of your team compared to the league.”
He told Rogan that the “stooge” from the NFL “actually happened.”
He explained that he “mopped the floor” with the stooge, however, when asking questions about the jabs.
“They’re in there talking about all different things, and they don’t talk about anybody’s personal health issues. There are zero exemptions,” Rodgers noted.
“And then they scared teams, saying if you had an outbreak caused by a non-vaccinated player, you not only forfeit that game, but you wouldn’t get paid for that week.”
Rodgers’ references to a league “stooge” were corroborated by Cole Beasley, a former Buffalo Bills wide receiver.
“Same ‘stooge’ came to the bills along w/ Bruce smith telling us we didn’t care about winning or our teammates if we didn’t get the vaccine. I didn’t get Covid until the nfl stopped testing all the vaxxed players because they all were getting it,” Beasley tweeted yesterday.
Rodgers then mentioned to Rogan that he got COVID from a “vaccinated” person.
“Here I am showing up to training camp on the first day, and you’ve got five people who worked for the organization out with Covid — all fully vaxxed,” Rodgers said.
“And I got Covid from a fully vaxxed individual, who only got vaxxed to keep his potential as part of the NFL.”
Rodgers, who has not had the COVID jabs and is allergic to some of the ingredients in the shots, last year was successful in fooling the press into believing he had the shots by saying he was “immunized” against COVID.
He thanked Rogan for the advice he gave him on how to beat COVID, which included taking ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, and vitamins D and C.
Rodgers said he was called ‘conspiracy theorist’ for questioning jab narrative
Rodgers noted to Rogan that the league had said to him that it was “not possible” for a vaccinated person to “contract or transmit COVID if they had been vaccinated.”
“And I said you gotta be kidding me, cause I showed up and five people, non-players, five people fully vaxxed are out with COVID so what are you talking about,” Rodgers said.
“And he said, ‘you’re a conspiracy theorist’ and I said, I’m just looking at the facts here.”
During the 2021 NFL season, the COVID jabs were not made mandatory. However, those who did not get the shots had to follow very strict rules.
As for Rogan, he has been critical of the COVID jabs and was blasted for hosting COVID experts Drs. Robert Malone and Peter McCullough on his show.
Rogan said in the podcast with Rodgers, “Jen Psaki said these vaccines are approved by the FDA, which is the gold standard. That was a lie.”
“They weren’t approved. It was not true. They had an emergency-use authorization. They weren’t approved. But she was a propagandist,” he added.
Some NFL teams have been putting out advertisements for job openings stating that the COVID shots were a condition of employment.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were rebuked by the Florida State Department for placing such an ad, as Florida law bans private and public COVID vaccine mandates through a system of numerous exemptions that employers must recognize.
Many high-profile professional athletes, such as tennis star Novak Djokovic, have faced backlash for choosing to not get the COVID shots.
Djokovic recently said that he cannot compete in the U.S. Open because he is not being allowed in the country due to not having the shots.
According to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) through June, there have been more than 1.2 million injuries reported related to the COVID shots.
“The data included a total of 28,532 reports of deaths — an increase of 220 over the previous week — and 235,041 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 2,347 compared with the previous week,” Children’s Health Defense reported.
According to two recent medical studies from Europe, it is blood damage that explains the many harmful impacts of COVID shots.
Young men in particular are more likely to experience heart inflammation brought on by the COVID jabs.
Indeed, recent autopsy data shows a close association between the COVID mRNA jabs and heart inflammation, instead of a link between the COVID virus itself and heart issues.
Heart inflammation after a dose of mRNA “vaccination” in young people was so prevalent that Sweden and Denmark stopped the use of Moderna’s COVID injection last year.
The COVID jab trials have never produced evidence that vaccines stop infection or transmission. In fact, evidence suggests that the jabs no longer even reduce severe symptoms, especially considering the ever-changing viral variants, and that they are harming more people than helping.
