NFLPA recommends that players stop practicing together

Yes. And it would suck. But no more dramatic than that. He'd miss 2-3 weeks and done. NO THE END OF THE WORLD. And because it so happens Josh was playing in the NFL, he would have been aware he has it and needs to quarantine, otherwise he would have been more of a danger to his family and friends.

 

I don't bet but that virus will sure make some people lose or win ha ha.

 

I’m not really sure what your point even is. 

 

This thread is about football players taking precautions to avoid COVID infection. 

 

If you think this is all very simple and easy to figure out and that there’s just DEFINITELY going to be an NFL season, I’d suggest that your head is in the sand, and your position is foolhardy. Ditto if you think it’s as simple as just quarantining ONE player (as the recent infection of TWENTY THREE Clemson players shows).

 

If you want to discuss these matters like an adult, great. If you want to be confrontational and go wildly off topic, save it.

You're paranoid aren't you?

 

These players will have NOTHING. If it was another virus, you'd shrug your shoulders. Of course they can be contagious but even the WHO has mentioned asymptomatic people rarely are. Still that is the only real concern as their own personal health is probably totally fine. Like, totally. You quarantine them for 14 days and voilà, they're back to football. There's no "sky is falling" here. Better for them it happens now than during the season! That's why the NFL is considering having a large practice squad this year.

 

You realize if they weren't playing football, they would likely not have been tested and thus been as contagious if not more? Stop being so damn scared. The virus is real but not dramatic at all to healthy adults. We must protect the vulnerable and old. And thus, TESTING is the best option. Which they got because they played football!

 

Yes. it sounded as though  the WHO said that---and nearly immediately walked it back as people were taking the statement out of context.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/09/health/who-coronavirus-asymptomatic-spread-bn/index.html

 

People who do not show symptoms ARE spreading the infection. Many "unsymptomatic" individuals eventually show symptoms---that's pre symptomatic.  Out in the world, you can't tell one from the other. 

 

Ask Von Miller about  how long it took him to feel normal again.

Quote

 

Miller added that he took 17 days off before he attempted to practice again and that he can "really feel" the impact of COVID-19 on his lungs. 

"I still feel my lungs trying to get back in shape," Miller said. "It’s just all the wear and tear that it puts on your lungs."

 

 

I'm not paranoid. I'm realistic. S#it is going down, and some people have their heads in the sand.

No, I think most players are just going to stay isolated during the season and accept the risks. They're not a high-risk demographic, anyway. Crowdless games seems like the inevitable scenario.

You telling me offensive and defensive linemen aren’t high risk??!! They are text book high risk.  Lol.

those guys are great athletes in their peak shape during the season and still young. They have access to the best medical facilities and professionals.

 

Based on personal circumstances, it should be fine if they decide not to play. It shouldn't cancel the entire season, though

A player death from corona will be the end of this season and possibly the NFL. They need to be cautious until season starts at least. The liability is just too big of a risk.

Centralized power and strong borders? Like, NZ is a couple islands and South Korea has one border with a country they’re technically at war with. Not to mention the differences between East Asian societies and their view of government vs. western ideals. 
 

Meanwhile Germany is spiking in cases, not huge spikes but not surprising given they’ve been at least semi open since May. 
 

And of course, their combined populations are less than half that of the USA. 

How about per capita then.  Only 5 nations in the world with higher per capita.  This is not about population...this is about how it was handled. And btw.  USA is still spiking while others have slowed significantly.  So chances are there will be even less nations with higher per capita soon.  

 

Anyone who thinks this is a product of anything other than leadership should educate themselves more on the topic.

Germany has strong borders? Please.

 

And yes, their combined populations are less than half that of the USA. But the USA has about 4.2% of the world's population and 26% of the world's coronavirus cases. The fact that we're doing worse than nearly anyone else at stopping this thing is not due to our population numbers. Nor is it due to our borders being more open that countries like Germany's, which they are not.

 

Oh, and as for Germany's "spiking in cases," Their highs for new cases were back in late March and early April, around 5K - 6K per day. They're now closer to 10% of that. Those "spikes" brought the infection rate up to 50 new infections per 100,000 people. How does that relate to the US rate?

 

There are many contributing factors, but probably the single biggest one was slow and poor reactions right at the beginning, which is the most crucial time in a pandemic.

 

We needed to listen to the scientists and doctors. We didn't. Bad decisions were made, and they were not restricted to one side of the political map.

Eventually it will come out.  How many PDBs nailed the threat early on in Dec/Jan but were missed or ignored by our not so Great Leader who doesn't read or believe what's in them when it does not personally suit him?  We are paying big for that now.  We are worldwide pandemic losers.

There are not a lot of clean hands in this. But let's be clear. Pelosi did NOT have a bottle of vodka in her hand and did NOT promote a Chinatown parade or fair, as the president claimed. She did however, say to come to Chinatown and it would be safe. BTW, that was two days before SF's first confirmed Covid case.

 

Not defending anyone here. Just setting the record straight. Outright lies should be corrected ASAP, IMO.

 

For the record, since then SF has done a relativity great job compared to most populated cities in the US from what I understand.

The point here is ( OBVIOUSLY) NOT the bottle of vodka as anyone that is NOT a robot would understand that it was a joke , because sometimes when she runs her mouth she looks like a ###### drunk that’s my OPINION

I’m starting to come to the awful realization that an NFL season will almost be impossible to pull off. Thank you China for ruining that for us as well...

 

Were you close enough to see the bottom of Trump's leather soled show last night?

What does politics have to do with no NFL?  We're f'd for football in 2020, but as long as one side can blame the other and get their rocks off it's a great day, right?

Holy crap, if we had to fight WWII right now, we'd be doomed.  We cant agree on anything as a society.

The "scientific community" is made up of thousands of individual scientists. Individual scientists may have some agendas--some are liberal, some conservative But the Scientific Community definately has a big agenda: Getting to the truth through the careful application of the scientific method, peer reviews, etc.

Most linemen are not in great aerobic shape, and this is a disease that affects lung capacity.

1/4 of Clemson's football team just tested positive.  

The chance of a full season of football in 2020 is almost zero at this point.  

Or, it doesn’t really matter, it’s like any other type of virus that most get better from. This one was overhyped from the start. 
 

What is the statistic? The average person who dies is older than the life expectancy of Americans?

Well...this is the problem. It's not just THEMSELVES. If player X gets COVID, and maybe doesn't know it because he's asymptomatic, and then goes out to party that night -- a very realistic scenario for invincible-feeling rich 20-somethings -- he can then spread it to a huge number of people.

If it were just "taking responsibility for one's self", it would be a whole different matter. Because of how easily the virus spreads, the reality is that you have responsibility to your community. 

did I not say adults must take responsibility?   that means the "going out to party" part does not happen, or it happens with a mask or whatever on, i.e. take responsibility if you are a public figure and you go out..  no nanny state for me, don't need NYS telling me what to do or how to handle situations..   Cuomo already has demonstrated he has no clue on how to handle this thing, the nursing home debacle was his Katrina.
