Except it is not now, good for him for standing with his principles. ‘Sportspeople forced to obey laws’ I can really understand how these cases have become such a major scandal. He should have picked tennis as his sport. it's experimental...why does it seem that people do not understand what that means? not picking fights at all, it just a simple observation.. so if u want to participate in any medical trial, thats fine. and vice versa. its just that simple. so what's going on? why feed it?

VoteBlueUSA2022 I really admire Australia!! More could learn from them!!! I applaud their stance. I'm vaxed due to my job mandate but I see no reason why ppl should if they choose not to. In the last month Qld has proved Covid is spread by 'fully vaxed' ppl. So don't pretend a small number or unvaxed Ppl will make any difference it's simply false.

recent deportation of tennis world No 1 Novak Djokovic. The best surfers in the world are scheduled to arrive in Australia for back-to-back World Surf League events at Victoria’s Bells Beach and Western Australia’s Margaret River in March and April this year. “I think we’ve been pretty clear with the Novak Djokovic case of no vax, no play,” the federal health minister, Greg Hunt, told Australian broadcaster Channel 9. “It’s a pretty simple message, doesn’t matter what sport, we’re even-handed. I hope he [Slater] gets vaccinated and I hope he competes.” The Victorian premier, Daniel Andrews , said he hoped there would be no repeat of the saga that overshadowed the build-up to the Australian Open and left Djokovic unable to defend his title at Melbourne Park. “It’s important there is clarity from the commonwealth government about who gets in and who doesn’t,” Andrews said on Thursday. “That is a good thing. Least you don’t have a soap opera, drama, that wastes everybody’s time. Tennis is bigger than any one person [Djokovic] and we’re seeing that ... whether it’s at any of the venues down at Melbourne Park.” Andrews said it was unlikely the state government would open discussions with the World Surf League over possible exemptions for unvaccinated athletes following the Djokovic debacle. “That’s kind of a moot point because the commonwealth government have been very clear,” Andrews said. “Clearer now than they have been for a while, which is good.” On Wednesday, the federal sports minister, Richard Colbeck, said there was “no chance of getting into the country” for Slater if he was unvaccinated. “I reckon he knows the rules,” Colbeck told Nine newspapers. “It doesn’t matter whether you’re a surfer, or a tennis player, a tourist or anyone else, those are the rules. They apply to everyone. “I don’t like the chances of him competing in and I’d hate to think of what the chances were of him competing in Western Australia.” Topics
