Good for Neal, he did not take the vaccine.

Is this real or just trolling

Hey JoeB are you serious ? Good for him!


It’s all about enforcing the vaccines for goodell !


Cowboy Fan Ed, I would not say it in the way JoeB did but if Neal hasn’t taken the vaccine that’s his choice. I’m 50 yrs old and I work in a prison and I’m around several that are sick. Call it Covid call it the Flu, but it’s not for you or #RogerDogerGoodell to say that Neal or any other player MUST take a vaccine. #MyBodyMyChoice

Hey Jon couldn’t agree with you more! I just don’t want anyone to get this mess !! I took it that Joeb was saying that because Neal didn’t take the shot and he was put Reserved C19 then that’s what he deserves! If I’m wrong then I apologize but if not it takes a person with no class to wish anything bad on another person during this China flu pandemic!


I take JoeB’s remark as such: (a) He’s a staunch no-vaccine advocate (to each his own), and (b) He’s one who wants to interject politics into a sports discussion (and likely any other topic as well).
