NFL informs clubs that COVID-19 outbreaks among unvaccinated players could lead to forfeited games So if unvaxxed players have an outbreak, their team will be heavily punished financially and given a loss, no rescheduling. But...if vaxxed players have an outbreak, the teams won't be held accountable. First, why did it take them an entire season to figure out that games will be impacted by outbreaks and that forfeting games is the right thing to do? Second, this is a very strong statement from the NFL regarding the effectiveness of the vaccines if they had to build in a contingency plan for if/when vaccinated players acquire it. Then there's this: "According to Thursday's memo, vaccinated players or staff who test positive and are asymptomatic can return to duty after two negative tests 24 hours apart. For non-vaccinated persons who test positive, the 2020 protocols remain in place, requiring a 10-day isolation." This makes no sense to me whatsoever. If you're vaxxed and test positive, your antibodies and incubation period isn't going to be different than someone not vaxxed. What am I missing? I mean, I know the NFL is doing all this to push teams to push players to get vaccinated. But at least make your policies make sense.
