Hall of Famer Michael Irvin recently scolded the Dallas Cowboys and other NFL teams for not hitting the 85% COVID-19 threshold. Irvin basically said you’re not serious about winning the Super Bowl if you don’t get vaccinated.
Irvin is back with more comments about getting vaccinated, and he’s just spitting hot fire these days on this topic. The Cowboys legend basically gave a middle finger to all the vaccine conspiracy theorists out there, including those who play in the NFL. (*cough* Cole Beasley *cough*)
“Here’s what gets me. I don’t mind you coming after me. I don’t mind you say what you say. Do two things though. Don’t put me into your political discussion,” Michael Irvin said recently during an interview on Shan and RJ on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. Oh, right wing, left wing. I don’t give a damn about that. I don’t care about the right wing, I don’t care about the left wing — I only care about a ring. Not the right wing, left wing — a ring. I don’t care about the conspiracy theorists, ‘oh they’re trying to kill us.’ If the government wanted you dead, our asses would all be dead right now. So just shut up with all of that.”
Michael Irvin brings all the smoke here, and he’s staying consistent with his belief that not getting the vaccine simply isn’t acceptable if you’re actually serious about winning the Super Bowl.
There was quite a lot of controversy around the NFL on Thursday when the league revealed potential punishments if a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players on a team forces a game cancellation. That team would have to forfeit the game and face other penalties, and players from both teams in the canceled game would lose game checks.
Several NFL players took to Twitter voicing their disagreement with these rules, but the league simply is not going to mess around this season. Michael Irvin clearly agrees with this strategy.
