This week, the Las Vegas Raiders football team announced that they would require fans to have proof of Covid-19 vaccination to attend in-person football games this fall, becoming the first NFL team to institute such a policy.
As the first team to implement such a strict Covid-19 policy, Las Vegas will probably lead the NFL in a tidal wave of insanely restrictive policies, guaranteed to damage the gameday experience of fans.
The most ridiculous part of this Covid-19 policy? The Raiders will be offering the Covid-19 vax ON-SITE so you can get the jab and immediately walk into the game.
The Raiders will offer the opportunity for fans to receive vaccinations on site at Allegiant Stadium prior to Raiders home games, permitting newly vaccinated fans to enter wearing a mask.
I'm a pretty big football fan, and I've seen some wild tailgate experiences, but receiving a vaccination as part of your pregaming? I just can't quite comprehend that.
Is the plan to recruit intoxicated tailgaters into getting the jab while they aren't thinking clearly? "We'll let you into the game if you'll let us inject you with this experimental drug."
No doubt, some people will take them up on the offer.
Hopefully, there are no serious side effects for those receiving the vaccine. I can't imagine anything worse than going into overtime and then the vaccine starts kicking your butt and making you sick.
This seems like a recipe for disaster.
Or as Raiders fans would call it, an above-average season.
