On Saturday, Michigan announced it is pausing all practices and games "until further notice and up to 14 days" because of several positive cases of the COVID-19 variant, B.1.1.7, which transmits approximately 50% more easily, according to the MDHHS.

I'm thinking these teenagers need to student a little bit more and athlete a little bit less.

great_tigers: How many college athletes have died from Covid?


How many people will infected college athletes spread this highly contagious variant to, who will then either die, face long term and possibly permanent heath issues, or lose their entire savings to medical bills?

It's never been about individuals. It's about protecting society as a whole. The selfish Covidiots who can't be arsed to cover their faces correctly and follow a few basic rules can't seem to grasp this. If you live in and benefit from a society, you need to behave in a way that protects said society from danger.

Can't think past your own selfish individual needs/wants? Quit society, drag yourself off into the woods, and die lonely and mad about it.

Not anymore. See, now that they can get paid for playing, they aren't getting paid if they don't play. So now they want to play so they get paid.

None yet, which is why changing a process which has been successful would be stupid. There have been numerous who now have permanent heart damage including a basketball player who collapsed during a game and was hospitalized for weeks.

And those farkers, who were in here venting their frustration on people refusing to follow a few simple safety rules, are FOLLOWING THE RULES. Venting has zero impact on the health of the people in question.

Not wearing a mask, not distancing, not following the rules impacts EVERYONE.

Do you not see that one if these is VERY BAD and one is completely harmless?

Or are you so stuck in magical thinking that you are actually under the impression that the thoughts of others, absent matching behaviors, actually have an impact on the outcome?

Even smart kids can be stupid.  The shut down isn't JUST for you, you selfish assholes.  It's for everyone you come in contact with.

In fairness, it is reported that the athletes who contracted COVID are in non-revenue earning sports (much more likely they are actually attending classes \ being students).

Also this isn't a clear cut "student athletes aren't scientists, they're being stupid, selfish, etc." situation:

MDHHS spokesperson Lynn Sutfin told MLive Monday that the department's memorandum it sent to Michigan Saturday regarding the virus outbreak was merely a recommendation to shut down, not an order. However, a UM athletics source said officials interpreted the state memorandum as a mandate.

So there is an indication that the athletic department may have overreacted.

Did you die?
 
2021-01-26 12:37:28 PM  
No i think reacted correctly. even one confirmed case should have been grounds for a shut down until at minimum every last athlete was tested and those found to be infected sent to quarantine along with any who refused to be tested.  Then give the place a deep cleaning before reopening the sports programs.

That's what you're going with as a gotcha moment? "These kids being profoundly ignorant proves that they weren't taken advantage of?" Get help.
