Amari Cooper is in a bit of trouble.
Following the Dallas Cowboys’ final game of the regular season, Amari Cooper made a public pledge his team would do “everything” it took to avoid a season-devastating COVID-19 outbreak.
The Cowboys wide receiver was fined $14,650 by the NFL on Thursday for violating COVID-19 protocols for unvaccinated players by attending a Dallas Mavericks game last week while unmasked, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer.

Cooper said the following after the Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday last week. From the Dallas Morning News:
“You don’t want to get sick. This is the tournament,” he said after the Cowboys-Eagles game on Saturday night. “We train so hard in the offseason, OTAs, camp, to get to this point. We accomplished that goal thus far. We’re going to do everything we can do to not get sick. If that means isolation, then that’s what that means. Hopefully we can isolate enough to not catch it.”
Apparently it’s not about attending a game, it’s all about where you sit.
“An unvaccinated player can attend a sporting event but must sit in a luxury suite with a mask and not be surrounded by more than 10 people. Cooper was sitting courtside at the Mavericks game.”
Amari needs to look at the big picture, winning a Super bowl.
You can go to NBA games all offseason long.
