Athletes Are Referred to as Conspiracy Theorists
Here’s a quick Saturday reading from the UK. Soccer players are what we call soccer players here in the US. Athletes at home and abroad are called conspiracy theorists to make their own informed consent decisions regarding the Covid vaccine. Recipients in their twenties are reported to be more likely to have heart problems – and these footballers can certainly read. Sweden and Denmark are pausing Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for younger age groups
If you relied on your body for your career, wouldn’t you use your head and think two or three times before making a decision that could mean the end of your career? It follows, of course, that these men are simply influenced by social media, ergo, stupid. From what I’ve seen on Insta, FB, Twitter, and TikTok, the wall-to-wall push was praise and pride for the Covid vaccine. It was special to see people wake up, wasn’t it?
Footballers “more open to conspiracy theories” about Covid vaccine, claims Gareth Southgate
Gareth Southgate says footballers ‘age and social media usage may make them “more receptive to some of these conspiracy theories” surrounding the Covid-19 vaccine as he defended players’ apparent reluctance to speak out about the need to be stung to become.
The English coach reiterated his own support for the vaccination program, previously insisting that his squad intake was higher than expected, but effectively admitted that greater reluctance was being discussed in the locker room.
“Most players have had to wait longer, many of them have already contracted the virus – and that’s my theory – maybe they feel they already have antibodies from it,” Southgate said.
“At their age, they are more open to some of these conspiracy theories. As they read more social media, they may be vulnerable to these types of views. As far as I can see, there is a little confusion.
“And there are several different topics as to why they choose to get stung or not speak about it publicly. I understand why there would be criticism for that. As I’ve always said, I don’t see any better way to weather the pandemic than with a vaccination program.
