Aaron Rodgers fine: Additional COVID-19 violations went unpunished

More discipline on the way?

Anyone who hoped Aaron Rodgers would be punished harshly for impersonating a vaccinated person (and the Packers for allowing him to) would have been very disappointed when the NFL handed out ridiculous fines to the quarterback and the franchise on Tuesday.

Rodgers and teammate Allen Lazard were fined $14,650 (in accordance with the fine schedule agreed upon by the league and the players’ union before the season) for attending a team’s Halloween party because unvaccinated players are not allowed to get together with teammates in groups of more than three outside of the team facility. The Packers were fined $300,000 for failing to report Rodgers and Lazard’s presence at the party and for not disciplining Rodgers for not wearing his mask during press conferences.
