1. Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers was a popular and unproblematic figure for the longest time. Even if NFL fans didn’t like the Packers, they still thought that the QB was a decent man. However, perceptions changed in 2021 when he demanded a trade from Green Bay. This was despite their roster enjoying an enhanced strength in depth. In the end, he agreed to stay until the end of the season.

But the drama didn’t end. NFL rules mandated athletes to receive vaccines. When asked if he had his, Rodgers said that he was “immunized” against the disease. It emerged that he used this choice of words for a reason. Instead of taking the vaccine like the majority of other people, he sought alternative treatments (via N.Y. Times). Needless to say, he fell ill and missed a key game for the Packers.
