This season the NFL has implemented an extraordinarily long list of COVID-19 protocols to prevent the spread of the disease, and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wonders if some of the rules in place make sense.
During an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Tuesday, Rodgers was asked about the coronavirus guidelines, and he had some interesting questions about them himself.
“I think there’s a lot of questions of are we doing all this based on science and it’s all necessary?” “There are some interesting conversations to be had down the line about all of that. … I’m just wondering what is this based on.”
Rodgers went on to criticize the ‘double standards” he sees in the NFL’s Covid-19 protocol.

“I think there’s some double standards — you can dap up a guy after the game but you can’t eat at the same lunch table as a teammate,” “You can go down to practice and hit each other and be in close contact but you have to have plexiglass between you and the guy next to you in the locker room. Some of those things to me don’t really add up.”
Rodgers makes some interesting points and it would be interesting to see if anybody within the NFL medical team would address them in the future.
