Colts Covid Test Results in Colts Football Posted June 25 On 6/22/2020 at 1:56 PM, il vecchio said: The public pressure will not be to cancel the season, but to proceed with it. Sure, there will be some infections with all the grunting and close contact pushing, and those infected players will have to quarantine for a few weeks. On the plus side of that, presumably they return with some increased immunity. Let's note that even without a season, the players and their families could be infected. One thing I would hope and expect the league to do is daily testing of the players. That's a good way to stay on top of any infected players. These are all fit young men in the prime of health (except for some extra fat on the linemen). Their chances of serious illness are very low. Hopefully, in a another few months, there will be more additional therapies available, like injectable antibodies. I assume the Players' Association will vote on whether to play after the policies are set in place. I can't imagine anything other than a near unanimous vote to play. A daily Q-tip up the nose is not the most pleasant thing, but the alternative is missing a valuable season in the NotForLong. For the general public, it seems the best way to deal with the virus is massive testing and contact tracing, along with widespread mask use. Pretty much the opposite of what the US is doing, but that's what countries which have had success have done. Hiding at home is medically effective, but it's unsustainable and economically disastrous. It appears the first of the dominos have fallen. The HOF game is cancelled as well as the HOF induction. Sadly, I still see this as a pressure campaign to shut it all down. It may be on the wide open campaign or more lobbying behind the scenes but I feel like there is a push from many to just shut down the entire country until we have a cure for this. We may never find one, who is to say. I can’t believe we are in this state of panic and fear. I still don’t buy the fact that the MLB will play either when it gets down to it.
