NFL Teams Must Forfeit Games From COVID-19 Outbreaks Among Unvaccinated | CBS Sports HQ” on YouTube

This is an update to a previous post.

Just as I predicted in my previous post, the NFL will make vaccination mandatory, without saying that it is “mandatory.” According to multiple sources, the NFL has announced that for the upcoming 2021 season, players that are unvaccinated will not only be subjected to discrimination, but teams with unvaccinated players will be forced to forfeit games if there is an outbreak among unvaccinated players.

What’s interesting is that there is nothing stated about what happens if there is an outbreak among vaccinated players. Contrary to popular belief, there have been outbreaks among vaccinated as well as the unvaccinated. A perfect example is the New York Yankees baseball club which has dealt with two separate outbreaks of covid this year even though most of the team’s players are fully vaccinated.

It will be interesting to see how the covid protocols impact the upcoming season.


Technically the NFL has not made covid vaccines mandatory. But what they have done is make so that those who are not vaccinated feel as though they are outcasted from the rest of the league. How? You might ask, well simply put, players that have been vaccinated have no travel restrictions, players that have been vaccinated do not have to endure daily testing, and not to mention the peer pressure that comes with being a part of the few that refuse to be vaccinated.

The NY DAILY NEWS reports that Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott is voicing his concerns, as he hopes to have enough players vaccinated to completely loosen protocols.

Across the country, employers are walking the thin line of suggesting, without demanding their employees be fully vaccinated. It is very fine line indeed. At the moment, employers are using incentives, but this is only the first phase. In the next phase employers will be more aggressive and will probably stop just short of telling employees to take the jab, or we are going to have to let you go. Just as Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane said he was ready to release players that are unvaccinated, so will it be in the common workplace.
