Another idiot NFL'er ready to retire to avoid a shot.



The NFL's latest rules regarding COVID-19 don't appear to be sitting well with at least one of its star players.

Just hours after the NFL released a memo saying that teams that experience an outbreak of COVID-19 among unvaccinated players will be subject to forfeits in the case of a game cancellation, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins took aim Thursday at the league.

"Never thought I would say this, But being put in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the @NFL," Hopkins wrote in a since-deleted tweet.


But getting concussed is a different thing?

JD Vance says he regrets past criticism of Trump


Ohio Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance said on Monday that he regrets posting since-deleted tweets critical of former President Trump.

"Like a lot of people, I criticized Trump back in 2016," Vance told Fox News' Alicia Acuna during a Monday interview. "And I ask folks not to judge me based on what I said in 2016, because I've been very open that I did say those critical things and I regret them, and I regret being wrong about the guy. I think he was a good president, I think he made a lot of good decisions for people, and I think he took a lot of flak."

"I think ... the most important thing, is not what you said five years ago, but whether you're willing to stand up and take the heat and take the hits for actually defending the interests of the American people," Vance said.

Vance also says in the clip shared by Mediaite that he met with Trump recently at his Mar-a-Lago estate and calls him a "good president."
