The Lounge>St. Louis Cardinals sidelined with COVID
tk13 08:08 AM 07-31-2020
More postponements.

Positive coronavirus tests with the St. Louis Cardinals have postponed their game against the Milwaukee Brewers, a source tells ESPN, confirming the @jonheyman report. Unclear how many, but to this point positives had been limited to teams in the East. Now in the Central, too.

A belief/feeling is an agenda?

Come on guys
There are differences between MLB and the NFL. Some of those differences are advantageous and others are disadvantageous.
There are reasons to believe that there will be some sort of an NFL season.
There are reasons to believe that there will not be any sort of an NFL season.
There is one thing that we all hope though. That hope is that there will be an NFL season.

The Chiefs video about their preparations makes it very clear how half-assed the MLB is doing all of this.

If every NFL teams prepares like we do, then I have a little more hope for the season.

My whole career is doing shit that initially people said it can’t be done, it’s too hard, we don’t have the time or resources etc.etc. Think outside the box. Be flexible. And get er done. If the NFL wants it to happen, I’m sure they can pull it off.

What agenda would that be?
It seems to me that he just thinks there will not be an NFL season. :-)

Theyíre basically doing it though without the whole bubble thing. Players are going home and to the facility where theyíre gonna test the crap out of them for Covid.

Biggest issue will be having leadership basically tell them youíve gotta bubble yourself when away from the facility. Iím sure the teams have people who can go to the store for you and that kind of stuff.

The families will be the hardest part.

But the nfl canít do the nba bubble. How would they have a place big enough for the whole league and film crews and officials and everything? I donít see how it could work

Officials in the nfl have jobs other than football. Iím curious how theyíre gonna figure that out

I’d bet that >75% of posters on here have to on an everyday basis at their jobs, figure out a unique solution to a problem at work. They don’t throw up their hands and say sorry, it can’t be done when it can’t be accomplished by the standard process.

We have almost 800 employees and have been operating 24/7 since all this shit started. We have had a total of around 30 positive cases with employees since March, not including family members of employees which would likely add another 30-50.

We are down to 1 active unresolved case as of this morning with 2 people waiting precautionary test results that will likely be negative.

We have never shut down through it all and are using masks and social distancing etc...for mitigation.

Play ****ing baseball, and football for that matter.

Precisely. Repeated elongated exposure from close proximity is worse than quick exposure. I would imagine OL would be most at risk at contracting it from others during the game, but the most common way it will be transmitted is between teammates not vs the other team.

Either way, if they don't do it in a bubble it won't work.

They don't even need to wear masks in the NBA bubble, even though many do.
