    Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been the most polarizing NFL
    player over the past year. Leading up to the 2021 season, it wasnt
    clear if Rodgers would ever play in a Packers uniform again. When
    Rodgers did eventually arrive at Packers training camp, he was not shy
    about airing his frustrations with the organization, which stemmed from
    his lack of involvement in the decision making, among other things.

    In November, Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19, months after telling reporters that he was immunized against the virus, a statement that
    led most to believe that he had received the COVD-19 vaccine. The
    backlash to the positive test was immediate, with members of the media hammering Rodgers for what they viewed as misleading the public
    regarding his vaccination status.

    Two days after the news broke, Rodgers went on The Pat McAfee Show to
    tell his side of the story.

    I realize Im in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now, so before
    my final nail gets put in my cancel culture casket, I think Id like to
    set the record straight on so many of the blatant lies that are out
    there about myself right now, Rodgers said.

    On Tuesday, Rodgers once again joined the show, this time sporting an anti-cancel culture hoodie for his weekly appearance. Rodgers discussed
    his record-tying touchdown pass against the Baltimore Ravens, as well
    as agreeing with the Ravens decision to attempt a two-point conversion
    late in the fourth quarter instead of kicking the PAT in order to tie
    the game. Toward the end of the interview, the COVID-19 conversation
    was brought up, focusing on the updated testing protocols for
    vaccinated players in the NFL.

    After discussing the testing protocols, Rodgers steered the interview
    toward his frustrations with the lack of conversations around a healthy lifestyle and treatments for preventing and treating COVID-19.

    The one frustration that I have in all of this, is that throughout
    this entire time there hasnt been real conversation around health,
    Rodgers said. As far as giving people things to think about when it
    comes to health, like how to be healthier. As far as your diet,
    vitamins, and exercise. But the other thing that hasnt been talked
    about is treatments. Obviously Ive talked to a lot of friends who
    had COVID, including Joe [Rogan], and figured out a protocol that I had
    ready in case I got COVID that basically took my symptoms from what
    they were to non-existence in 36 hours.

    "The one frustration I have is that throughout all of this
    there hasn't been any conversation about health. I don't
    understand why society & the NFL hasn't talked about
    legitimate Covid treatment options"

    In his November interview following his COVID-19 diagnosis, Rodgers
    discussed his own COVID symptoms, saying that he followed the advice of
    podcast host Joe Rogan.

    I consulted with a now good friend of mine Joe Rogan, after he got
    Covid, and Ive been doing a lot of the stuff that he recommended in
    his podcasts and on the phone to me, Rodgers said in November.

    Im going to have the best immunity possible now based on the 2.5- million-person study from Israel that the people who get Covid and
    recover, have the most robust immunity. Im thankful for people like
    Joe stepping up and using his voice. Im thankful for my medical squad
    and Im thankful for all the love and support Ive gotten but Ive been
    taking monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, zinc, vitamin C and DHCQ. And
    I feel pretty incredible.

    On Tuesday, Rodgers questioned why treatment options are not discussed
    by the NFL and by society at large.

    But I dont understand why society and the NFL hasnt talked about
    legitimate treatment options, Rodgers continued. And monoclonal
    antibodies I believe is one of them. Ivermectin obviously has negative attachments with it. Its controversial. CNN labeled it horse-dewormer
    but its being used in Japan, and India, and other places. But if
    youre not doing any of that, at least can there be conversation around treatments that can help out guys if they have major symptoms to
    recover quicker?

    Rodgers did give the NFL credit for their new testing protocols, which eliminates weekly testing for vaccinated players, with more of a focus
    on testing players who show symptoms of COVID-19.

    Green Bays next game is against the Cleveland Browns on Saturday at
    Lambeau Field.

    Let's go Brandon!
