    I just can’t endorse dead bodies littering the roadside so I can go watch a freaking FB game nobody will remember or care about in 2 weeks. We are talking about lives vs entertainment.

    Everyone's going to get exposed to the virus. Eventually, it's just going to be forced on everyone anyway.

    You will be infected.

    Good Luck.

    My point was if you make everyone stay home I mean all workers hospitals, police,fire, I believe sooner than later people will just say screw it. But going about it the way it was done really didn’t accomplish much, kinda like fighting the Korean War you fought not to win.

    I do agree with you on the difference of population, I have relatives that live in some of the bigger city’s and they were genuinely scared. I mentioned to them take a drive in the country if possible, just to get out of the of the city. And of course we always have a certain amount of stupid people that do what they please and a certain amount of people that live in filth and no way you’d get them to properly wash up. There’s a reason I live out in the country besides the obvious, I hate stoplights Winking

    I had a similar experience in February with myself and my son, so we had our son tested. Came back negative, there was a surge of adenovirus this winter that had similar symptoms that you are saying which is what they “think” we had.

    Very true. But I trust my body. I don’t lie to my body. What I had in February was not like anything I had before. And I usually bounce back for illness really quickly, but couldn’t shake that for a while. Could have been an awful cold but could have been COVID19. Will probably never know

    And in March and April people were very much showing symptoms. If they weren’t showing symptoms then those wouldn’t be symptoms now would they? There is an increase in asymptomatic cases but it’s not the norm.

    Also keep in mind the COVID19 in late winter early spring is a different strain then what we have now. So we could see different symptoms as the virus mutates

    People reap what they sow. By not staying home or wearing masks, people have literally sowed coronavirus everywhere. In doing so, they’ve further jeopardized non-essential activities like sports.

    everyone knows you love to greatly exaggerate. no one is staying home all the time. everyone is going places and do some things. they just aren't doing a few things like hang out in crowded indoor places.

    I feel like I'm in bizarro world with the hysteria of covid 19. Some folks talk about the importance of masks and staying home and ruining our economy. But they are cool supporting assholes burning down buildings. WTF?

    There will be a season because money reaches beyond politics.

    Whatever justification you need to remove yourself from society is fine. The end result is the same, Karen.

    No. There was no stopping it anyway. Just by virtue of having to keep services running in particular in urban areas, this thing was going to keep marching on. As a nation we couldn't have people stay home for the months. This was NEVER about preventing people from getting the virus. This WAS about slowing the spread so that our healthcare system could keep up with demand for care. The CFR and death toll continues to fall from this thing. As your hero Andrew Cuomo stated, "We've tamed the beast. It's time to open back up". We've known all along and even Fauci predicted that there would be hot spots pop up around the country as we fought our way through this. Nobody should be surprised.

    I hear ya. I am not saying you didn't have it and hope I didn't come as an arse.

    My main thought is there are a ton of people that felt they had it earlier than what is being reported in the US. I am sure some had it, but just based on numbers most didn't have it and had something else.

    It really just shows how little we knew about it then and really not much more now.

    Sure, not disputing any of that. But the comment was in reference to people’s attitudes, especially as it pertains to not wearing masks. This public health crisis has been politicized to the point that not wearing a mask is a conscious “don’t tread on me” statement. That is the attitude which ironically will preclude the US from reopening while the rest of the world does. Hence, people reap what they sow.

    There’s certainly a case to be made that the tightly controlled football environment (testing, protocols, a motive to comply w/ protocols) may prevent more spread than taking the season away from 150 college age kids, removing them from the confines of that structure and leaving them to do whatever during that time.

    I would say it’s more responsible to let them play under tight supervision vs no football = no requirement to follow recommended and oft-disputed guidelines.

    Handling stadiums and fans is a different element altogether. But strictly talking teams: playing ball could be better than not playing.

    A big reason people are rebelling against masks is because the government told them they had to close their businesses and lose their jobs.....while the same politicians also encouraged thousands of people to gather together in the streets to "protest".

    Either require masks and open everything up, or ban all large gatherings including protests. Politicians should not be picking and choosing who has the right to assemble based on political reasons.
