If the game ends up canceled I am screwed. I have Shady McCoy and Mike Williams going and half my bench is on bye weeks

NFLPA said it's unlikely given the noise coming out from the doctor. They'll have to review the full report before making a decision though.

Great, even an infectious disease is doing better than the Giants.

Nice to see someone updated the Wiki page for MRSA.

Digging through the Buccs injuries page. Michael Adams page is tagged with the story for no apparent reason.

I hope Money Mike didn't get it, that cat's too awesome of an unlikely player to contract MRSA.

Not a lot of CB's/special teamers make it for this long in the NFL at 5' 8" without kicking ass

He should have Jonathan Banks give that MRSA the Mike Ehrmentraut look, it'll scare that bacteria right out of him.

No, Ray Lewis' stink from the last Super Bowl is still there. We're working on it, though.

I do enjoy this part of the coverage. As we've seen, the NFL doctors DEFINITELY have a history of putting safety first when it comes to playing the game. There's no way that the game is cancelled.

Actually, in this particular case, the doctors in question are actual NFL outsiders who are experts in the field of infections, so yes,I would trust them. (Also note that all of the MRSA cases have been from the practice facility, which is in a different location than the stadium, so as long as nothing was carried over to the stadium locker room, there shouldn't be a problem.)

BTW, as an aside that someone pointed out on the radio - thanks to the gov't shutdown, the CDC is currently closed, so they can't be brought in for advice.

Wait is this for real?  The CDC, the actual United States federal government CDC sends teams of people to advise workplaces on this kind of thing?  Maybe if it was a hospital or some major international airport where thousands would be exposed I could possibly understand that but for an NFL teams practice facility?  What does the local or state health departments do?  I get the idea that you don't want contagious diseases spreading willy nilly but this is 4 cases in a given place with repeated exposure.  Call the local health department up and get some clorox or whatever it takes to sanitize the place.  I'm starting to understand why the feds act like the country is filled with children. It's because the grown ups apparently don't want to be involved with doing stuff.

Non-football injury = no money.  Getting MRSA from TEAM training facilities = football injury.  Which equals getting paid.  It sounds like you are claiming you are in the know, and the rest of us should know better.  But as someone who reads NFL.com nearly every day, I haven't seen any mention that Tynes is patient zero.

Or, you know, anyone who disagrees with your POV is a troll.  I have never seen a word (troll) get so stretched out and abused so quickly.  It reminds me of your mom after the homecoming game.

Tynes brought it into the facility. He's the vector for it and it has been confirmed that he has had the infection "for months." He worked out for two weeks before going under the knife. He's the culprit and his injury is not football related as it was before he was signed. Before he got there: no MRSA. After he got there 3 MRSA. Pretty obvious if you ask me.

So the government shutdown might rid the world of the Bucs, and it might even end the next season of "Deadliest Catch" due to a lack of permits?

This shutdown thing might not be all bad.

Go Fornicate Without a Partner: Non-football injury = no money.


You know what, I had a long post typed out for a number of your comments, but forget it.  Just google "Bucs Tynes" and read the first link.  Or since you say you read NFL.com daily, go to Tynes NFL.com page and read the 2nd headline listed for him and then tell me the Bucs aren't paying him.

From that first link:

Tynes, 35, a Pro Bowl alternate last season, will remain on the line for at least two more weeks, according to his agent, Ken Harris, and for now is receiving his paychecks. However, by placing him NFI, Tynes is not able to receiver 401k matching or annuity benefits and also is blocked from accruing a season of service towards his pension, both which have significant financial ramifications.

That makes it look like they're paying him less.  Is that not true?

Dafatone: That makes it look like they're paying him less. Is that not true?


"Less" isn't really the distinction I''m interested in here.  He would have gotten more if he were on the active squad.  He would have gotten more if he didn't get the infection.  What he is getting his entire base salary, and in there lies my problem.  Every time it is brought up it is mentioned as though they just dumped him on the curb without anything.  He is getting almost a million bucks for not being able to play due to something that did not happen during practice or an actual game (which is how the NFL defines "football related" or not).

If people want to call out the Bucs for screwing him out of benefits, fine, I'm not going to bother to dispute that.  But when people say they simply aren't paying him, that is just untrue.

Okay.  They're paying him less and screwing him out of benefits.  That's pretty bad.

Someone above said that Tynes brought it into the facility.  If that's true, then the Bucs look a little better here.  But still not much.  MRSA's serious business.

as far as i understand, Tynes isnt patient zero.  Which means he got MRSA BECAUSE OF the Bucs.  Therefore, non-football injury designation removes his ability to play/be traded when he's ready, and reduces benefits which  should be afforded to him as he got this 'inury' BECAUSE of the Bucs.

Any spin doctoring to make the bucs sound less arseholey is just bogus.  Does everything need to be spelled out like this nowadays?  The derp is strong.  The derp thinks its a white night.  The derp is winning.  Fight on my 'troll' brethren.  We must not falter.

I farking hate the Bucs management. For many reasons, but this sure as hell isn't one of them. I have followed this team passionately as early as I was able to understand the basics. This is the direct result of an act of desperation on the part of the GM Dominik for not insisting on a thorough physical before signing the guy whether through giving in to pressure from Tynes agent or otherwise. He is patient 0, which is exactly why he is NFI and not IR. Dominik sucks as a GM in every aspect of the position. He sucks as a talent evaluator at every aspect of the game, hires shiatty coaches, and is so inept at PR that he cannot even get out in front of a kicker's wife to address concerns, perceived or otherwise about this team. This, ignoring all the bullshiat that happened with Freeman and his positive drug test last year at the same time 2 other players tested positive for adderall. Like I said, plenty of shiat that is farked up here. This isn't one of them.
