    No reason to risk his families health just to be cut.
    Going to be cut or not for his family it was a reasonable thing to do.

    Good choice for him, his wife had cancer recently. Glad he's putting her safety first.

We also have a number of fairly large cities and surrounding area that all add up to a good % of our total population.

    Further, I can not remember all the feedback, but I do know that citizens are reasonably happy with the way the pandemic has been handled in the province I live and in others. I can research that. I think that is also a key measurement in all of this, given no 2 countries are exactly the same.
    Based on cases per mil people it seems a 1 Canadian (2976 per mil) will test positive for Covid19 for every 4 people in the USA (12495 per mil) who test positive. Based on death rates someone in Canada (7.89%) is twice as likely to die from Covid19 positive test. USA (3.6%)

    Cases per mil taking from today numbers.

    Death rates taken from July 23 numbers

    I appreciate the concept of picking the state of CA but we can use cases per mil and death rate to compare areas of different population. I am sure like the USA ... Canada has areas doing better than other areas.

    Covid cases / deaths
    California - 466k / 8,528
    Canada - 115k /8,901

    I would guess the having one of the lowest population densities in the world has helped Canada.

    That’s a good thing, but comparing to the U.S. is not a fair comparison.
    Right - but that is why I used Ontario as my example and not the east coast or some nonsense like that. The GTA is over 6.93 Million people with a fairly dense population. In fact let me put this in perspective in terms of what I have seen thus far in terms of how the Ontario Premier (equivalent to a US state Governor) handled things compared to the news I've seen in the USA. In a suburb of Toronto called Brampton there was a house party which hosted 200 people. This was the Premier's response (https://globalnews.ca/news/7222733/d...n-house-party/).

    So after re-opening without following the CDC guidelines the state of Georgia with a population of 10 million (2019) saw pretty substantial spikes in CODID-19 cases. When the Atlanta mayor did what much of Toronto and Ontario is doing (mandating masks in public) rather than the state Governor supporting what is effectively public heath he took the mayor to court (https://globalnews.ca/news/7182923/c...georgia-masks/).

    I just see these approaches as starkly different. with these different approaches I am also seeing different results as well.

    I didn’t say your country doesn’t have cities with many people it’s just no where near what the US has.

    There’s no way to garuantee the NFL can’t limit this thing without a bubble.
    Neither can your local grocery store.

    Yes, but you need someone with the virus in order for an outbreak to start. And with daily testing and strict protocols in place if someone tests positive, they should be able to keep them off the field so that it's never an issue.

    But that's definitely a big deal in football, but more so in college and high school, where those tests won't be taking place daily.

    Please explain. Density of population is only one variable. Also, the national stats are quite different than just listing California. But density is a factor in Canada. For example, The GTA (Greater Toronto Area) has close to 7 million people, based on the last estimates I saw. Given the fact that The USA has about 9 times more people, therefore a similar city in The US would have to be over 60 million to be as dense in terms of overall national stats. I am not saying The US is less dense, but this is an example of how dense just one city is, in our overall demographics.

    But Canada has a lot of people in cities and towns, where people are close together. Yes, we have tons of space, but few people live in big chunks of this country. We are also travelers, and a large % of our population is close to the US border. Just info for consideration.
    I compared California because they are similar in population. Canada had less cases but California had a much lower death rate than California.

    It is proven and undeniable that talking loudly, yelling, heavy breathing (huddle) in close proximity to others is an easy way to spread and get the virus if someone is positive for the virus or is asymptomatic, no symptoms.

    As a player or a staff member this should be a huge concern, IMO.
