Reggie Bullock rips NFL over Amari Cooper mask fine

Amari Cooper warms up before game

The NFL fined Amari Cooper this week for violating the league’s COVID-19 protocols while sitting courtside at an NBA game. At least one Dallas Mavericks player has the star wide receiver’s back.

Cooper, who is unvaccinated, was fined $14,650 by the NFL for not wearing a mask at the Mavericks’ game against the Golden State Warriors. Dallas forward Reggie Bullock took to Twitter to support Cooper after the news surfaced.

Apparently the NFL was unhappy about more than just Cooper not wearing a mask. League officials want unvaccinated players to watch other sporting events from suites, according to Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News.

Other NFL players have been fined a lot more than Cooper for COVID protocol violations. There’s a lot of hypocrisy with the league’s COVID rules, but the mask police are clearly still working overtime.
