    We've all gone back and forth on this for 52 pages (maybe 53 by the time I'm finished typing), and I understand that we've all dug our heels in, for the most part. But I still can't understand why some folks still have their heads in the sand. It's one thing to argue what 22 has argued; he said it himself - he's doing just about everything aside from wearing a mask to keep himself out of harms way, while trying to live his life. He and I will agree to disagree on some aspects of that, but I understand his tact, and I appreciate the fact that there is actual "tact" involved in his decision making. But to say that "Americans acting like Americans" isn't a problem is exactly the problem. Pretending like there isn't an issue where there is an obvious issue is exactly the problem. I get that we're all tired and frustrated, but our collective callous attitude about this whole mess is exactly why we are still in this mess. My politics shouldn't matter, but apparently they do to some on this board; I'm a right-leaning moderate in a family full of doctors and other medical professionals, and it is a crying shame that the entire medical community can present a mountain of evidence to the masses explaining why we should be handling this entire situation with kid gloves (while still trying to resume some kind of normal), and yet a large percentage of the population just casts it off completely as some sort of political conspiracy or "fake news." We can certainly debate how that medical advice is "all over the board" or "constantly changing," and we can even debate "common sense" all we want, but to say that this is all part of some giant conspiracy and that we shouldn't adjust our behavior to some degree is just willful ignorance, which is sad. I'm pleading with everyone - stop making this about politics and acknowledge that this is a real (not manufactured) health crisis. Visceral defiance just fans the flames of this political inferno. I'm not saying that we should cancel the football season, and I'm not saying that I want the season to be cancelled. I think we all agree that a year without football would absolutely suck. Sports have always been my outlet to escape the real world, and my life in recent months has been a blur without that outlet. But if we have the opportunity to slow (or potentially stop) a preventable virus from impacting/ravaging our society, shouldn't we collectively be interested in doing our part to protect one another? I'm not asking us to put our lives completely on hold and not resume some kind of normal. Life is about risk management, to a certain degree. I just think that we should all acknowledge what we are trying to combat and try to think beyond ourselves for once. Sorry for the TLDR soapbox moment, Trader. I wish I had enough confidence in my fellow man to share your sentiment, but I don't. I'm hoping that others will prove me wrong! Let's try to be smart, patient, kind, and considerate in these difficult times.

    This is not directed solely at one person. That’s fine. I know politics is intertwined in all things. Contrary to the belief of a few on here, most posters on here are not stupid. They have opinions. Some I disagree with but that’s okay. However, I’m discussing sports. I don’t come to CoachT to discuss politics. It is sad that one can no longer make a simple post about SPORTS on here without someone trying to angle it into a “political football” and make a misguided, pitiful personal attack. I get my political news from Fox every night. Not posters on here. I know my political science. I don’t need a civics lesson. I sat under liberals and conservatives. I don’t have to google it. I’m a constitutionalists who believes in law and order. I am as constitutionally conservative as one can possibly be.

    Maybe it will pass through us now and will be over with. Main deal with this virus is how schools handle adversity of it. If every virus was under a microscope like this one, we would never be in school or playing sports period. Have to learn to live with it. No fear. Psalms 91.

    Yeah Hydroxychloroquine is the main reason I don’t like him because I know doctors in Atlanta and I know nurses that have went to NY and they are taking it big time and know several people around here that have successfully taken it for treatment and for him to constantly degrade these doctors on the front lines tells me all I need to know about him. He don’t want no one to use the drug because Trump told people to look at taking it. Way too many success stories. I am so glad doctor’s on the front line are calling his BS out and making him look like a fool.

    Yeah, I discard mine daily. $30 for fifty. Maybe the lady at your grocery store has a special mark on each one of hers that enables you to discern that it is the same one she wore yesterday. Maybe she doesn’t make a lot and it’s the best she can do. Maybe some nice person will donate a box to her. Every one in the boxes I purchase look the same. Cloth masks negate the spread of COVID from sick persons to others. Not necessarily the other way around but it couldn’t hurt. I’m glad you admitted they are germ magnets. Thanks for making my point. Cloth can then be washed in a washing machine daily. It’s not political anymore. Democrats say wear a mask. Republicans say wear a mask. Trump says wear a mask. If anyone is going to a high school football game in Tennessee this year, your going to wear a mask.

    I understand your point and maybe we aren't ready. IDK. But I'd rather they meet in a safe manner and adhere to some guidelines to do their part in getting us beyond this, through this, around this, under this. You get my point? I wanna see the season play out. And if that means wearing a mask then that's a small effort on my part. To Everyone: Wear a mask so these boys can wear their helmets. Wash your hands. Take a shower. Clean yourself up.

    Ah yes, let's pretend like we're trying to choose between chocolate and sh*t-flavored ice cream... Salem, whether you agree or not, both sides are trying to gather information and make the most "appropriate" decision. I get that you completely disagree with the shutdown option (I don't agree with it either), but some think it's the best way to stop this runaway COVID train. The reality is no one knows for sure what effect that would have. I just think most rational people are somewhere in the middle. A lot of folks are conflicted, myself included, because we still don't entirely understand what we're dealing with.

    From what I read, Mr Rogers is nationally recognized in hormone therapy and anti-aging. Again, I appreciate his opinions on covid-19, but I don’t think that’s in his wheelhouse.
  22. 3 points
    Reading comprehension appears to be an issue so I will repeat it. You made a crack about MR Rogers and questioned his credentials. I looked up Dr Rogers’ bio and found he has over 30 years Of medical experience. He also has experience directly Treating Covid patients. Here’s the part that got you - he is more than qualified to give a valid and credible opinion on Covid. I would also wager he has more experience with actual patients than your two infectious disease experts who spend more time in lectures and dealing with theories than treating patients .

    I’m sure he is a great guy and just trying to help, but To say he is more qualified in infectious diseases is quite a stretch. Let’s just agree to disagree on that detail.

    See the problem you have with me is the same problem Trump has with Dr Fauci. Trump can’t control the narrative if Fauci is telling The Truth. You are trying present a Republican narrative with that article about negative tests not being reported and putting a Ron DeSantis tweet up. But countering your biased narrative with Actual Facts. if want to end it then you end your biased opinion

    Completely disagree. The cause for the increases violence in these cities is the lack of support for the police. They know they will not be held accountable. Look at the looters in Nashville that busted out windows. Anybody heard of any arrests? Anybody hearing the news outlets asking questions? Those things can't be blamed on Covid. Geez if being home Akron d neighbors and family cause those things then we have much bigger issues. Going to get worse

    A big thank you to the men who gave us our Independence. And another big thank you to those of you who have served to keep us independent. As you watch fireworks shows tonight (if you can find any), think about the fact that nearly 245 years ago that was the sounds of cannons being heard. Think of the fact that a fledgling group of colonies and colonists were taking on the greatest military power of it's day. All for a better way of life. We haven't been the most perfect nation since then, and the founders knew we were not perfect then. But they laid the framework so that we could constantly build towards a more perfect Union. There will never be perfection but we must always strive, as a nation and as a people, to uphold what they gave us and to build upon it. Happy birthday to the United States.

    Trenton is for sure the REAL DEAL!!! If DB could land him that would be Major for their Squad. If I'm Trenton I'm going to play for Elizabethton tho with him running the ball they would be pretty unstoppable. Trenton rushed for 2,800+ YDs and 47 Rushing TDs on like 220 Carries led the state of VA in Rushing and Rushing TDs. He did all that playing only 4 Full games the rest he was sitting after half would of been Mr Football in TN with those numbers. Could of Broke the VA Career Rushing record this year need 3,000 for the record and 1,000 away from passing the Great Thomas Jones for 2nd.

    But is Dr. Fauci the ONLY expert? MANY conflicting "facts" (opinions) among those who do have college degrees backing their "facts". The other poster's "facts" make sense to me. But, hey, that's just me. You, me, the OP, and everyone else has to make up our own mind. Weigh the "facts", the fear, the agendas, the propaganda, the opinion reversals, Fox slant, CNN slant and in the end none of us really know. Never just because "Dr. Fauci says so". No need to slam a man for having an opinion (although he did say "facts"). He, you, and me really don't know. To each his own. I prefer to live modestly and protect myself, but let the young ones go to school and play ball. Oh, the italics, bold "facts". Just shows I don't know what a fact is anymore. They change everyday (or every channel) RWR

    TSSAA needs to delay the start of the season until late Sept. You have a good number of schools that can’t start on 8-21. Looks like Shelby and Knox counties are going to delay just like Nashville did. With school starting in the next few weeks everywhere case numbers will surge, politicians and the media will go nuts. You saw what happened in MLB with all the cancels, MLS with sending teams home from their tournament, and the SEC delaying until late Sept. You can say it’s not a big deal but it is.

    Governor Lee announced High School football is "ON" for the state of Tennessee. TSSAA rules must be followed to ensure the season continues as scheduled. The Oak Ridge Wildcats will have their opening game against Hardin Valley, away, on Friday, August 21, 2020. The Wildcats will host Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett, the following Friday, August 28, 2020 at Blankenship Field, Jack Armstrong Stadium. RWR!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here's an interesting stat for you: over 50,000 people die per week in the US on average. That is without Covid-19. Those numbers come directly from the CDC. Knowing that, do you really think it would be difficult for them to pad the numbers to push their agenda? It has been widely reported, and confirmed by media sources, that hospitals are getting more money for Covid-19 patients than other patients. So, of course they are labeling deaths as Covid-19 deaths. It is scary to see just how easily manipulated most people are. This virus is mainly killing old and very sick people and our leaders are talking about not letting kids go to school and canceling high school and college sports. That is insane! Can you think of any demographics that are healthier than high school and college athletes? You may say, "Bu, but they could give it to their grandparents!" And that is true! But the same can be said of the Flu and we never cancel school or sports for that.

    To be clear the fake crisis I was speaking of is the taking down of monuments that are all of the sudden a huge issue. But if you want to talk numbers and death rates of course no one wants to see people die but by the CDC's own numbers more people will die of pneumonia this year than Covid 19 and nobody has ever shut the country down over that. Also you should know what is defined as a Covid Death. It simply means a Covid positive at the time of death. You could have died of clear obvious other means such as a terminal diagnosis 6 months prior.

    Lee needs to look at the information himself and use some common sense. 188 people 24 and under have died from COVID out of 121k. For 5- 14 there has been 31 deaths! Older teachers and coaches probably need to wear masks and social distance as much as possible. Don't understand what is driving all this fear. Kids need to be back on the ball fields.

    I have watched a lot of these kids (Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors) play as they have grown up in different programs and they have a lot of talent. They may not have a lot of experience but they have talent. I will be curious how they handle rotations this year. There was not a ton of rotation last year because the starters were only playing 3 quarters before blowing teams out. There are several positions that could have equal talent competing for spots.
