    I agree and have seen firsthand that it is not technically the sniffles. It’s a real virus that can potentially be bad for certain ones. That said, we have state officials and doctors openly stating that they are manipulating the death numbers. It isn’t some conspiracy theory, or speculation. They are telling you that these numbers are not accurate. How are we bashing one person for one extreme, while at the same time, going to the other? I’d argue that that is what is causing the biggest problem.

    Agree on the asshat part.

      Concur on ass hat and that manipulating the data that is driving public policy is the biggest issue right now. I wish these morons would assume that adults are smart enough to make their own assessment of the real data instead of manipulating it to support whatever policy they think is best that day.

        I understand why all universities are contemplating keeping it within their conference as a control measure. I’m just not all on board with that idea. You can’t tell me that Florida playing Florida State is more of a health risk than say Florida playing Ole Miss without sounding illogical. It’s not the fix.

        I’ve seen people do everything right; keep their distance, wear masks, socially distance themselves, use hand sanitizer when they should and still somehow they come down with it. Knowing all that and seeing it first hand I don’t know that there’s a protocol out there that’s going to prevent or safeguard students/players. I think at some point a decision will have to be made if they’re willing to risk it or not. Period. I’m under the impression that if the kids are good with it and there’s sufficient testing/protocols in place then we should turn them loose. But they’ve got to get their shyt in a sock and they need to figure it out sooner rather than later.

        Come up with a decent testing strategy and some distancing measures and run with it. If a dude tests positive then he doesn’t play and gets quarantined. If you’re over 45 years of age with underlying health conditions then probably a good idea to sit this one out on the couch. I think a mask is a good idea to wear in the swamp and I’m certain a full capacity game will be out of the question. I’m still of the idea the season can happen.

        I’m likely in the Asshat department too, though.

          Jeezus Christ. Turn off the angry homos on #FakeNews. Do you have the slightest fvkking clue about microniology? Obviously not.

          Those "130k" were people with everything from endstage cancer to nursing home cucumbers to motorcycle wrecks. 70% of the people that were counted in New York tested negative, but they counted them anyway.

          The danger to sub40 year old is half of that of riding a damn scooter. Youre right though, for at least 80-90 percent of young people, it isnt the sniffles. For them, it is nothing at all.

          Now we're not sure how much of that is just data manipulation or frankly just poor quality tests. Even the CDC admits that their antibody tests are picking up people who just had the regular common cold versions of coronavirus.

          Some is just outright corruption. Orlando news has shown many labs producing 100% positive results, and someone at the Department of Health multiplying the cases and deaths tenfold. And people who scheduled a test, missed the appt, then getting a form letter telling they are positive.

          You can come out of your basement now. it's safe. Just stay away from the Democrats they're rioting now too.

            As a general rule, I think any close-contact interaction with a florida state student runs the risk of contracting some type of virus. I just don't think Covid19 is my largest concern there.

                    You’re a fool. Football isn’t happening this year regardless of the fake death count. It’s nothing but politics.

                      Well that is the problem according to me, this is not really a crisis there is plenty of time to evaluate the cost and benefits. For example no football might mean a bankrupt athletic department (large cost) and having football might mean some very healthy players getting a little sick (which they might anyhow). Evaluate and decide, don't panic and do something due to your emotional state.

                        Well they are all over 18 so they could either not play or agree not to sue. And of course at least some make a lot of money from their professional careers in football. Not to mention the school does not profit at all and the athletic department mostly breaks even. Funny how viewing it as an accountant makes things different.

                                Yeah, I'm not convinced you understand how money filters though a local economy and how many people are affected.
