Sportswriter and NFL MVP voter Hub Arkush went on to Chicago Sports Radio Station "The Score" to explain that he won't give Aaron Rodgers the MVP vote because he doesn't like Rodgers for not getting the jab.
When asked whether or not he has prejudicially decided not to vote for Aaron Rodgers as MVP, Arkush explained that, despite Rodgers playing arguably the best football in the league, he isn't worthy of being most valuable player because of his position on the Covid jab.
I don't think you can be the biggest jerk in the league and punish your team, your fanbase, your organization in the way he did and be the most valuable player.
Has he been the most valuable on the field? Sure, I think you can make that argument.
So, when it comes to performance on the field, Aaron Rodgers is the best and most valuable player. Sure. But Hub doesn't like that Rodgers didn't get the vaccine so he won't vote for him.
In fact, not getting the jab makes Rodgers "the biggest jerk" in the league.
He talks about Rodgers "punishing" his team and organization. But he doesn't say how he does that. Rodger's personal medical decision has done absolutely nothing to hurt the team. They're still winning, they're still putting up huge numbers, and Rodgers is playing the best football of anyone this year. But a few liberal reporters are ticked that he didn't follow their rules and get the shot and that "punishes" the team.
Give. Me. A. Break.
I just think that the way he's carried himself is inappropriate. And the vaccine thing was just one more log on the fire, so to speak. I think he's a bad guy, and I don't think a bad guy can be the most valuable guy at the same time.
Rodgers dealt with a difficult and unappreciative organization in the offseason, he was vocal about it, and now he's not gotten the shot. So he must be a "bad guy."
Apparently, you can't be a "bad guy" and the MVP.
Enough of what Arkush had to say. Let's hear Rodgers respond to this guy's criticism:
That, my friends, was an absolute takedown.
I think he's an absolute bum. He doesn't know me. I don't know who he is – no one knew who he was probably until yesterday's comments... His problem isn't with me being a 'bad guy' or 'the biggest jerk in the league.' He doesn't know me. I've never met him, I've never had lunch with him, I've never had an interview with him. His problem is I'm not vaccinated. So if he wants to go on a crusade and collude and come up with an extra letter just to award for the season, and make it the 'Most Valuable Vaccinated Player,' then he should do that. But I'm not gonna waste any time worrying about that stuff.
Let's not pretend this isn't political. Aaron Rodgers refuses to go along with the ridiculous lefty demands, he defied cancel culture, and he's enjoyed huge success.
And that makes the leftist sports media absolutely furious.
