Michael Irvin is never one to bite his tongue.
During a recent interview with TMZ, former Dallas Cowboys great Michael Irvin was asked whether Amari Cooper’s decision to not be vaccinated was selfish.
Irvin said: “I don’t know what word to put on. But I’m absolutely hot about it.
“Are you joking…[So many players] on the bench, at home, not playing. It’s crazy.”
“I’m so hot at Amari Cooper for not being on that field.”
“I got a guy who makes $21 million on the bench at home not playing,” Irvin added. “It’s crazy.”
Irvin thinks Amari Cooper is way too important to the team to miss big games.
“You have to try to mitigate any issue that could cost you a game or a Super Bowl, and COVID is one of them,” Irvin said. “You go get vaccinated to try to mitigate it, best you can.”
The Playmaker stressed the importance of trying to stay on the field for your teammates.
“Now you can still get it [covid] even after you get vaccinated.
“But it’s a different percentage chance of you getting it. And I need you to get that different percentage chance. I’m so hot on Amari Cooper for not being on that.”
back in July Irvin made his feelings known:
“Dude, you’re not thinking right. You’re not thinking right. Whatever you got, I don’t give a damn,” Irvin said, via ProFootballTalk. “Nothing else can be more important. You’re not going to get this [winning a Super Bowl] easily. Nothing else could be more important. … Jimmy [Johnson] made that abundantly clear [during Irvin’s playing career]. Nothing else is more important. And not being one of the [85 percent vaccinated teams] says there’s other things to a great number of people on this team that are more important than winning championships, and that makes me worried.”
Winning sometimes means doing things you don’t want to do. Irvin knows exactly what it takes to win.
