    Sorry , should have been more specific. Not past tests this was just recent testing.

    The NFL wasnt included in that post btw

    NFL just came out a few min ago and stated 95 tested positive.
    The NBA had a positive test inside the bubble last week, and Dwight Howard was warned by the league about not wearing a mask. He promptly went to Instagram to rant on how he doesn't believe in that stuff.

    This is sad. My Grandpa died May 1st. My mom and aunts were not allowed to be with him as he died even though they didnt have the virus nor did my Grandpa .

    Also a bit of good news , out of over 4k players , coaches and trainers for the NBA, NHL, MLB and MLS only 2 tested positive. I believe those were from the NHL.

    Better review our rules.....is there a winner in an unfinished season?? Might be a tiny consolation for football withdrawal syndrome.

    Baseball will shed a lot of light on The NFL. No hub cities. Teams flying to and from. And baseball will be compared to hockey and basketball, as they all start closely together, 2 in hub cities only and 1 in home and away travel.

    We should learn a lot in the next month or so.

    Depends on what you mean by dangerous.

    If you mean actual danger, then it’s not too dangerous.

    If you mean perception over reality, then all sports should be canceled as well as everything else.

    Reasonable precautions should be taken, but let the games begin.

    I think it will lead to more homerism with the rookies. Like I hit big with Lindsay two years ago.

    I think a lot of people will do thinks like sleeper picks on Hamler.

    Obviously the Juedys and Burrows of the world will get drafted.

    Right now a lot of people who do non-essential stuff have been told they are essential and have been working since March.

    I think the NFL should go forward just like how many other sports leagues have gone forward. NFL employees should not be punished if they do not want to get involved...they should not be paid either. Just like everyone else who has been told they need to work.

    One little tid bit guys . I know numerous people who have it and had it . Everyone has came back to work with no issues . We just sent 12 home last week because they tested +. They will be out for 10-14 days . Youd be surprised how many of their spouses and kids tested negative. We are testing every couple weeks .

    Another issue is false negatives. I believe this is a huge number of positive cases . A small % of the people I know had symptoms.
    Other than the elderly and people with weak immune systems, impossible to know who will get the virus, who will not have symptoms, who will be overwhelmed and who will die.

    To me it's like standing on the side of a street in the middle of the day with ear plugs and a blindfold and then quickly dart into unknown traffic attempting to reach the other side without getting hit. If you make it across, then do it again and again. What's the odds of getting safely across the street over and over? Eventually the law of average will get you. Is it worth the gamble?

    Your absolutely right about that, dying alone without your love ones being there for you and at the least getting to say goodbye. So many of our country’s elderly, grandmas, grandpa’s, hero’s who fought in many of our country’s wars died the worst deaths imaginable. Breaks my heart. I’m sure they would want us to fight this disease and not allow it to change life as we know it, the freedom they bravely fought for.
    Other age groups are among the dead as well.
