  1. Also vaccines don't work on the obese. So there goes any chance of saving Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, all with terrible Covid rates, all with SEC Football teams. https://khn.org/news/americas-obesity-epidemic-threatens-effectiveness-of-any-covid-vaccine/
  2. I have to say the homepage for the team looks so much better than in years past. Already seems they are getting with the times. I think you would find many people would sing the fight song if it's played. The protest part would be that. Not singing it would make it seem like everyone had moved on.
  3. It will be terrible unless they hire John Williams. OR maybe they should go hard on the GoGo Ah DC
  4. The old name and logo aren’t going to be getting a Viking funeral. It’s over. Respects will not be paid. The video is exactly as it should be. Ripping off a bandaid. No need to draw this out any longer than it has to. Honesty they shouldn’t have posted it at all but it seems a ripe analogy.
  5. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/08/officials-knew-danger-beirut-port-years-200805032416684.html This article details why the ammonium nitrate was there in the first place and essentially how bad governing meant it never got moved. They tried numerous times to get it removed Months later, on June 27, 2014, then-director of Lebanese Customs Shafik Merhi sent a letter addressed to an unnamed "Urgent Matters judge", asking for a solution to the cargo, according to documents shared online. Customs officials sent at least five more letters over the next three years - on December 5, 2014, May 6, 2015, May 20, 2016, October 13, 2016, and October 27, 2017 - asking for guidance and warning that the material posed a danger, Badri Daher, the current director of Lebanese Customs, told broadcaster LBCI on Wednesday. They proposed three options: Export the ammonium nitrate, hand it over to the Lebanese Army, or sell it to the privately-owned Lebanese Explosives Company.
  6. "I don't take responsibility at all." -The guy with the highest amount of responsibility bestowed upon an American.
  7. How is this even a debate? There should be no fans. It should not be left to individual teams to decide. The NFLPA needs to take a stand. There is a higher likelyhood of an outbreak with fans than without.
  8. There is no way to avoid an outbreak. Wait until next year. There should be a vaccine by then.
  9. Depends on if they make it out of training camp unscathed. I said 3 weeks. I think by then a large portion of the league will be infected and they will have to shut it down.
  10. This nation seems hellbent on keeping this virus alive as long as possible. Sports aren’t a necessity. None of these players is an essential worker. As a society we have prolonged this virus to try and keep the economy going and in doing so we are allowing it to go further in the dumpster. I could be back at work by now like our brothers and sisters in New Zealand and other parts of the world who took this seriously. btw New Zealand is as far as I can tell the only nation that has returned to normal so much so that by June 14th they had fans packed in a stadium watching rugby.
  11. Speaking on a personal level I was not given the opportunity to "opt out". My company let me go early on. I worked for a catering company. They reopened on a PPP loan and I was called back to work. Because we re-opened I had to take my kids back to daycare. My son was the first to get Covid-19 from a teacher. Then my daughter. Then me and my wife tested positive. I was then laid off again while still sick. I never felt like I could "opt-out". I feel like if I told my company no, there would be no chance of me getting rehired in the future. Most likely trainers would be let go and have to file for unemployment. I've never been on it in my life and I don't feel great about it but the options for someone in my field are pretty terrible right now. I can't tell you how many jobs I've applied for and I haven't heard from one single employer. I've tried outside my field as well. Thanks for the advice Ivanka If I were a trainer for a professional sports team I would not feel comfortable trying to opt-out.

  13. I doubt it works the same for trainers and other staff. They aren't backed by the players association. They would likely have to quit and then the teams would simply hire someone to fill the position.
  14. Could be that some of these players have reached the pinnacle of the sport AND realize they will be without their GOAT QB. Three of them each have 3 rings. They're also on the other side of 30 when the virus can have more negative side effects.
