I admit I never heard of this coach before this episode and have no idea what his reasons were for refusing to be vaccinated but employers make many demands all the time on their employees in the best interests of the companies, their clients or customers.
In this case it was getting vaccinated with a vaccine that for close to a year of experience has shown to be very effective, safe and free of charge.
He chose not to do what his employer required so he is no longer employed.
Whatever his reasons were for not getting vaccinated they were contrary to logic and clear thinking.
He dared his employer to fire him and his assistants and the employer had no choice.
End of story.
Yep, and the entity who fired him will let unvaccinated into their stadium to watch a game at will. They have no worries about covid vaccines when taking the fans money.

As Plato just said, companies do what's in their best interests. Taking money from the unvaccinated when entering the stadium is indeed in their best interest.

Total fu----g hypocrites.

Everyone who doesn't want to take the shot and is against protesting the national anthem is obviously part of QANon. All of them. In fact, if you don't want the government to dictate what you put in your body, you sieged the capital (which was one of the bloodiest days in US history). I'll take it a step further, if you didn't personally steal from a department store in protest for Michael Brown, you're a nazi.

I'm excited to get my new booster and I'm pissed off that they haven't made a polio booster yet. F'n racist klansmenpersons probably out pouring bleach on people in Chicago are spreading COVID and those idiots are drinking nuclear rod coolant to quench their thirst. I know what QANon is saying, that stuff is water. So what? It's used to cool down nuclear rods, so you're drinking nuclear rod coolant. . . NAZI!

Praise St. George. Abortions are awesome. Printing money decreases inflation. Professors should run everything. Trump trump trump trump Q Trump Russia Trump.

Oh no. Q Man Bob just blew a gasket. Rolovich was his favorite coach.

Oh I get it, because he didn't want to get vaccinated. Wait, who am I a lackey for? Kyrie? You responded twice to the same post of mine for that sick burn? LOL. You'd been better off keeping that one in your pocket.

Your insult is nonsensical. You'd have been better off doubling down on the Q stuff or maybe calling me racist. But to call me Kyrie's lackey is just weird. I have a feeling your feelings were hurt that I pointed out your shilling and you tried to find a similar word. But it doesn't really fit.

No. Because he is a flat earther.

^^ what a psycho jackass.

This is what happens when an intelligent, professionally trained person's mind becomes hijacked by awful ideologies.

Just sad.


At least this thread made it 13 posts before BL charged in with this gross post on 14.

cell lines from aborted fetuses, were used to develop them.
Which is false, any way you slice it, in actuality.

But hey, they're religious, so they're going to believe what they want to believe.

I thought R's were all about "right to work" laws and being able to fire someone for any reason?
I don’t know if Rs are, but I sure am. The problem is that we don’t have that dynamic. So now we can fire people with the wrong opinions for any reason, but favored progressive groups are bullet proof. Surely you can see why those awful hypocritical Rs would have a problem with that.

For any reason? Any? You are such a clown. There are numerous laws on the books that make it illegal to fire someone for different reasons. Are you just learning this now?
And GQP'ers oppose most of those laws. The example often cited is you can fire someone if you don't like the color of their shirt in right to work states, which are almost all red states.

In other words, you are OK with firing someone if they believe something you don't. I got vaccinated in early April, first chance I got. I am pro-vaccine for most. Vaccine mandates are a whole different story.

Of course they do. CNN says so.
Let's call a spade a spade. You are OK firing people for not taking the VAX because you think they should take it. End of story. You have no interest in why someone may not want to take it or the presedence this creates. CNN said it was to own libs so now you think the idea is good. It is as critical thinking as you get. You spend days yelling about someone not being able to vote before noon on a Sunday - but shrug your shoulders when someoone is fired because they don't want to put a medicine in their body. Seems rational. All those front line workers that were heroes, that the Government is giving bonuses to - now casted aside because they don't conform. This too gets a shrug of the shoulders.

What’s worse is they mandate I buckle up whenever I drive my vehicle; restricting not only my freedom of choice but also my freedom of movement. Patriots don’t like that, and I’m a Patriot. 🇺🇸🕺🇺🇸 🤬

You don't lose your job if you don't buckle up, nor do I care if you don't buckle up.

Seatbelts have also been proven by decades of research and don't involve injecting foreign substances into your body.

Awful analogy

Worse yet, I lose my $$; which of course is my personal property. If I refuse to participate in this seatbelt shakedown I am jailed and lose my freedom. And please, enough of this “decades of research” crap!
Next, I suppose, you’ll be touting “applied science”.
Terrible refutation

First off, it's so, SO racist for the NHL to go after Kane like this. Such a shame....

Kane is just plain a bad, bad person. The list of grievances by this guy is a lengthy one. He owes gambling debts to a number of Vegas casinos, his teammates in his own locker room don't want him there, he has had a few other off-ice transgressions...

Good riddance, Kane. I wouldn't be disappointed if he never plays again

We're clearly not gonna agree here.
I think you're probably right, but isn't that really a wonderful thing? That we can just disagree?

The menu used to always be agree or disagree, pretty much as simple as that. And yet, somehow in the last several years, the menu has changed to Agree, or pummel and beat and shame and guilt the opposing viewpoint into submission, relentlessly, without compromise or moderation.

It's a wonderful thing that two people can just disagree peacefully. I'd almost forgotten what that was

It's a fair point and an issue in our country for sure.

I guess another issue is that we are on a message board though that's foundation is based on stating opinions, extreme as they may be.

Unfortunately for Rolovich, he is taking an extreme stance - probably more ideal for a message board or Qanon - and sacrificing his livelihood to try and make his point.

I guess if you can afford to do it, by all means, enjoy your martyrdom

You consider this a minority, or extreme, stance because that's kinda what you've been told. It's really not as extreme or that much of a minority opinion. Millions of people have opinions that are not in favor of receiving the vaccination and have a litany of reasons of why they may be hesitant. Who are any of us to say that they are in the wrong or they are being extreme?

I got the vax a few months ago, very begrudgingly, but essentially did it for business reasons. I have and have always had ZERO concern about getting sick; already had COVID, barely a speed bump. I support people getting the vax, and at the same time I support people's decision to not do the same.

Why can't we just accept the decisions of people to do what they feel is right for their own situations? Why on earth is that so hard? An unvaxed person, if you happen to be vaxed and think that makes you significantly less susceptible to getting sick, is of virtually no danger to you. Why not live and let live?

Now that this precedent has been set, I’m sure the supporters of forced vaccinations will have no issues when governments start mandating sterilization for welfare recipients.
