  1. Exactly Sean.

    And look at the Jimmy Johnson example from NASCAR. Positive test, and a couple of days later negative. So was it a false positive? Was he positive well before the test, thus late in the infection period when tested and the subsequent test the infection had cleared?

    Too many variables and too much panicked reaction. No room for reasonable, measured action.

    • People are letting their emotions get the best of them. The rank and file would often react emotionally. But I used to feel like I could depend on leaders of business to provide reasonable, measured actions. Somewhere along the line, that disappeared.

  2. Just postpone and reschedule. NBD.

    It will become a big deal if they cancel the season over these breakouts, which A LOT of people want to happen for political reasons.

    But if they just shrug and let the players get over it and continue to play games, that would be a huge factor towards pushing America past this silly excessive panic.

    It’s just like any illness. Most people catch it and eventually get better. Only a few actually develop complications and die. A covid outbreak shouldn’t be treated any differently than a flu or cold outbreak.
