Wink Re: Coronavirus (sports edition) thread

From my perspective it can only be a matter of "my body my choice" when no one else is affected.

The rest of this post has been deleted as it is too philosophical/political and does not belong on a football thread. Apologies

Re: Coronavirus (sports edition) thread

The league said games would be forfeited IF they cant reschedule .. but they also said there will not be as accommodating as last year, no 18th week and probably not tues and Wed games.

its out of our control and hands .. im just going to wait to see what happens .. as the world turns, so are these the days of our lives.

Re: Coronavirus (sports edition) thread

There was a point in time when a choice was just a choice - not too damn long ago either. Now it's entitlement? Guess we'll be calling it privelege before too long...

This is still America right?

Get the vaccine if you want it. Don't get the vaccine if you don't want it. Don't shame anyone else for making a decision opposite of yours. You're not "right". You just made a different choice.

Re: Coronavirus (sports edition) thread

Apologies, I will concede that "entitlement" is somewhat of a mischaracterization, I was not at my best when I wrote that post. Though I did preface the statement with "from my perspective", which was from a splitting headache at the time.

There is obviously a deeper philosophical discussion that could be had (not here) about "free choice" and how individual choice effects the rest of society and what personal liberties are sacrificed to maintain that society.

Questioning is always good, you should never stop questioning the status quo.

Re: Coronavirus (sports edition) thread

Apologies to everyone for being far too political in a football thread.

Bottom line is if the NFL follows through on "forfeiting" games and salaries then with five division games in a row at the end of the season it could well determine who goes to the playoffs. Especially as an "outbreak" could well cover two games. The NFL has done this to cause peer pressure in the lockerroom where normally each guys business is his own, this I don't agree with. Could cause divisions if a team misses tge playoffs as a result

Protecting yourself and others is always the right choice.

Youre good Edmund. Impossible to talk covid and sports without politics being involved. Dont feel like you need to apologize to the anti-mask anti-vax crowd.

They're a strange bunch.

NO, the NFL did this because there is no room to reschedule games.
Stop trying to deflect the blame from the players.
If you infect your team, you're an asshole!

I guarantee you Haskins is going to take down the Steelers with Super Stripper Covid. Too bad he isn't a Cowboy.

Thanks, was apologizing in general for veering off of football, I know it annoys many, including myself, when that happens, occasionally though you get caught up in rant mode

Yes you can make that call but it comes at a price and that price might be your job or the lives of family ,friends or yourself.
