Players should boycott Victoria until Andrews is gone. Send a message that young, fit people don't need to risk their health unnecessarily to make a living.

He's just tabled a Bill in parliament that if passed - and it likely will - that would give him essentially dictatorial powers to declare a "health emergency," whatever that means, with fines of up to A$90,000 or 2 years in prison for individuals who breach his edicts. Given the zeal he's shown in persecuting anyone who disagrees with him by setting the riot squad after them, that could mean not wearing a mask properly or marching against lockdowns could land people in some very deep Dan.

Requiring vaccination for participating players is all to the good. The risk to health are the unvaccinated spreading covid - there is no long term health risk associated with the vaccine.

"It stands to reason that if you want to get into the country to be part of that tournament, then you should be double-vaxxed as well."

Tournaments will boycott players who refuse the vaccine. The message needs to be sent that if you are selfish enough to put others at risk, you should be made to sit at home and think about the consequences of your actions!!!

This is our new reality, pro team's around the world requires not only the player's but everyone that works for the organization to be vaccinated and the fans in the stands too. Novak and tennis need to take notice or go way of the dinosaurs.
