Slow To Return: You should be dropping knowledge like someplace where it'll be more likely to be seen than a dead thread with 19 posts.


Like all my posts, I write them just for me. Your helpful attitude is inspiring and I appreciate the attention.

Klivian: JohnBigBootay: abhorrent1: Yeah, I'm sure all 2000 NFL players 100% agree with his opinion.

Oh, is that a new requirement of executive committees? 100% or no deal? I'm sure they guys who voted against the last CBA will be surprised to hear that.

Like I've said multiple times. If players don't want to play, then don't play. It's pretty simple. But the people want or need to work should have the option.

Stop worrying about it. You are getting your wish because we're a nation of idiots.They are going to start the football season. But then, after all the outbreaks, which are inevitable, they will shut it down again. Because the virus still does not give a fark about your job. It just wants hosts. If we continue to provide it with hosts I assure it will be happy to keep using them.

Texas and Florida are heading screaming into another lockdown., 5 teams won't be able to start their season on time. There is no way football starts on time this year, and I highly doubt we get more than a couple games before it shuts down if it even gets off the ground.


Yeah but what about the people who work at the concession stand or sell t-shirts and shiat?

Just kidding. The truth is that this sucks. The virus sucks. The disruption sucks. the unemployment sucks. The inability to earn money sucks. But the fastest way to get to the best outcome is to deny the virus hosts. Yes, there will be lots of pain and uneven economic suffering amongst our populace along the way. I don't know how to fix that.

Slow To Return: abhorrent1: DRTFA: iron_city_ap: His guaranteed career earnings is around $50 million. I think he will be just fine if he doesn't play.

Also, he's right.

No, he's not.

What part is he right / not right about?  The part about football being non-essential?  The part about football being a higher risk of Covid spread than basketball?  The part where he's not comfortable putting his family at risk?


The part about it being non-essential. It may be non-essential for him but he has $50M in the bank but like I said above, it IS essential for some people. It's how they make their living.

It's a business and bigger than just the players on the field. How many thousands and thousands of people have lost their jobs because no professional sports have been played?

If players don't want to play because they worry about the risk, then don't play.
I just don't think multi-millionaire players should make the argument that no one should have the option to go back to work if they want to.
