Nick Rolovich's religious beliefs vs. protecting his community against coronavirus.
Just our luck. He gets fired AFTER he beats us.
I'm sure he'll parlay his misfortune into a number of right-wing speaking gigs. Be interesting to see where he ultimately lands again.
He's a medium-hot commodity, and could double his salary in a region of the country where mandates are shall we say, unpopular. Not to be cynical, but this could have been strategic move.
His buyout after this year would have been $3.6m, and he still had 3 more years on his contract. He turned down between $3.6m and $6m not to get a vaccine. What a colossal idiot. Staggeringly, mind-bogglingly stupid decision.
Well well well if it isn’t the consequences of my own actions
We’ll take him
I wonder what religion prohibits vaccination
Oh no, we have to hold tight to our coaching staff. Our entire staff is from the Pacific northwest.
Not saying it's correct, but the article below is out there. But would have been more persuasive if it had been published in Wikipedia. Just joking.
He got fired on his day off. LOL
I think it needs to be stated for relativity to us.
There’s always worse. 🤣🤣🤣
Out of the state's 10K employees, only 50 have so far been fired for refusing to take the vaccine. Nick and his staff comprise five of those 50. These guys are really participating in a movement of just themselves. It's interesting that his assistants joined him in a rate that is so out of wack with the norm. Were they coerced? Did they feel their stature would grant them an exception? Did they all belong to a mysterious contrarian sub-sect of Catholicism? This collusion between them to me is the intriguing part of this story.
Infections after Vaccination --- one thing no one's mentioned is that a deep dive analysis of all infections, hospitalizations, and deaths (I can't recall where I saw this) showed among the vaxxed people that do get infected, a high proportion of the serious cases (hospitalizations) and deaths are those most vulnerable, e.g., underlying health conditions. In fact, many deaths were attributable to other causes like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc., but also had COVID so they are listed under that category. Colin Powell is a good example of this. The vaccine can't help people get healthier from other chronic ailments and diseases; it just helps protect against COVID. So the number of healthier vaxxed people getting seriously ill or dying from COVID is much lower than just the raw numbers that are cited for COVID infections, hospitalizations, and deaths, when the relative health of each person is taken into account.
