You got that backwards, 99% survival rate. 1 % death, And you are willing to take an experimental drug to protect you from a 1% chance and your not in a high risk category?

 

You gamble more than me.

 

 

It's only been here for 6 months how do you know what happens in 3 years?

you dont. but its based on decades of vaccination history and data and science. but thats what emergency use means. when faced with a global health problem. your ignoring survival and long covid / lupus like symptoms that are chronic.

I’m willing to take a vaccination so that the rest of the world can get back to normal. I’m willing to take a vaccination so that I can go and continue to travel and enjoy the lifestyle I did pre-Covid. I’m also willing to take a vaccination that every doctor that I know has gone ahead and taken themselves so that they can protect other people. So, one percent of people die from Covid but .000000001% of people who have taken the vaccination have received any ill effects. I still see the win on the side of the vaccinated

He might be broken anyway. Probably a good time to cut bait if he continues to be an ignoramus. He can then move to Florida and be free.

 

I think Beas has a substantial ranch property in Texas.

 

When I'm not busy imputing the best motives and genuine beliefs and convictions to players, I did have this observation that Beasley was helmetless and not participating in team drills most of OTAs and we didn't hear about him being open and making catches for Josh when the defense was "winning the day".  Then I had this sneaky little devil thought, "what if Bease really damaged himself playing on that broken leg last season and is struggling, and decided to kind of ride off in a Blaze of Glory as a Martyr to NFL/NFLPA Covid Policy instead of announcing that he was retiring because he could no longer play at the level he wanted?"

If you had Covid 6 months ago and recovered, do YOU know what might happen to you in 3 years?

You're obviously not following the current health stats. The Southern states are, indeed, the ones experiencing spikes, especially in regards to the latest delta variant.

 

 

Looking at the data for each state I'm not seeing any spikes in the Southern States.  There were spikes in several northern states (Michigan & PA for example) with tough lock downs in place in April but so far in June everyone is seeing covid cases and deaths fall or stay steady at very low levels.

If you have such a minimal level of education on a topic, you really shouldn't be cluttering up the thread with meaningless comments.

 

But people aren't dropping dead in the streets of southern Alabama. So what's the problem?

The literal ***** problem is that there wasn't going to be a normal in 2021......and maybe much longer......without people getting vaccinated.

 

There are worse things than Beasley retiring and the Bills getting their money back.    This year is probably it for him in Buffalo anyway.    

 

 


Again.. talk to your local government.  I don’t run your state, town or city.  
 

We’ve been open down south for a while.

I actually hope it’s not the case and that he continues to be a Bill for at least next season. He was excellent last year. A huge difference maker in the slot. His personal opinions don’t cloud my view on how important he can be to the offence in 2021

There's only a problem if people are "dropping dead?" You have a pretty lax threshold for what constitutes a "problem" 

 

Or, more likely, you have no idea what the rest of the country has been dealing with.

We have gotten pretty far off track here, IMO. 

 

The NFL and the NFLPA came to an agreement on how this should be handled. Both sides agreed. The Bills as a team agreed that they would keep the vaccination talk in-house. Cole could not live with either of these agreements, and he is completely within his rights to retire if he feels that strongly about it. I hope that doesn’t happen, but if he can’t live with the deal, that is his option. 

 

It DOES bother me that he went public with it, as the rest of the team has been able to dance around it, rather than put it front and center to draw attention. 

 

I still hope that things will continue to evolve in the months ahead to give us some common ground and a solution can be found that works for everyone. We are a better team with Cole on the field.

I’ve been reading and keeping my comments to myself. But if I was to say something this was going to be my comment.
 

Quite frankly, the people who refuse to get vaccinated are simply grifters. They grift on the doctors and nurses and scientists and immunologists and mathematicians and all the vaccinated people in the general public who got out of the wagon and are pulling us out of this mess. They don’t care if they get sick and get hospitalized because somebody else will be there to take care of them, the caregivers who are required to be vaccinated, so they can perform the simple act of breathing.

 

Somewhere Jenny McCarthy is smiling. 

i dunno dude...58% of health care workers are vaxed... are they grifters? Or maybe different opinions can be respected?

We have an idea that for the vast majority of people not to much will happen as covid is a corona virus and we have experience with that class of virus.

 

BTW, do you know what will happen to you after getting vaccinated in 3 years?

 

And for the record I chose to get vaccinated as I'm over 60 and the risk/benefit ratio made sense to me.  If I was healthy and 30 I'm not sure I would have opted to get vaccinated.  For sure if I had covid previously and was under 40 there is no way I would get vaccinated. Would you?

yes the data and current recommendations - even if you had it you should get vaccinated. fun fact - if you cleared the virus AND get vaccinated you have an insane amount of immunity.

You have an insane amount of immunity with either the vaccination or naturally derived immunity.

 

There are a lot of medical people advising against those that have recovered from covid getting the vaccine.  Others are recommending that those who had covid previously get only one shot.

i dont understand this irrational fear of what COULD happen in 3, 20 or 40 years. But my whole live has been medicine and science. so to me its not a question. I can understand some of the concerns to a degree. the virus doesnt re write your genetic code. attack any organ system. THE only current thing that is making the news is their are young/ teenagers getting vaccine and having some myocarditis. but it is an insanely small number. and vast majority resolves without any treatment

The reality is that a vast amount of people, particularly those under 40, are alreday effectively immune to covid and if they catch it the viral load remains low and they don't develop symptoms or they exhibit very mild ones. They also are much less likely to pass the virus on.

No I do not, but a potential risk is better than a guaranteed risk IMO.

 

You do what's best for you though.
