Vikings Offensive Line Coach Rick Dennison Fired Because He Refuses To Get Covid Vaccine
Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports
The Minnesota Vikings offensive line coach Rick Dennison has been canned after refusing to get vaccinated...
quote:

Another coach in the league, New England Patriots co-offensive line coach Cole Popovich, also won't be with his team in 2021 in a decision related to the COVID-19 vaccine and NFL guidelines, league sources confirmed to ESPN.

The vaccine is required for all Tier 1 staff, including coaches, front-office executives, equipment managers and scouts. Players are not required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine but will face strict protocols during training camp and throughout the season that vaccinated players will be able to forgo.

In a memo released by the league this summer, the NFL said any unvaccinated Tier 1 staff member must provide a valid religious or medical reason for not receiving the vaccine. Losing Tier 1 status prohibits coaches from being on the field and in meeting rooms and having direct interactions with players.

The Vikings noted in their statement that Dennison does not have a vaccination exemption.

Should have applied for a religious exemption. Could have told him his religion forbids him from joining other religions like the one pushing the vaccine.

The one pushing the vaccine fits the definition of a "Cult"!

I understand that you're frustrated about this situation but comparing this to Nazi Germany is pretty fricked up.

Actually it's exactly what a Fascist or Communist (both Socialist) governments would dictate to their citizens. You see we have this thing called Liberty in America and you can't tell someone to take an experimental therapy mislabeled as a vaccine...it's not how it works.
