Just flat out false. You have zero insight into their lives and precautions taken.

It will be interesting to see where the opt outs land. Lots of word out there that teams will be downgrading pretty much everyone but Chase

Both Steelers and Cowboys have been pretty clear they are marking players down. Not necessarily for opting out, but due to the lost reps.

I'm torn on it personally. I don't think you can make a mass judgement. You have to look at individual situations.

There was a lot of BS around. Do you remember all the crap about heart damage in 30% of cases? Well, where are all the athletes that are done? So that would effect some guys decisions.

Ultimately I don't think anyone will slide a lot. Single digits rather than 10s.

On its own? Sure, I'd say it's a bad take. It's still a red flag, or at least something to take into consideration. Again, on its own, it wouldn't be enough to put me off drafting the player. Add in the MASSIVE injury red flags, and nope. Just nope. Not in the first round.

In the second round? Sure thing, I'll take that chance. Not at #16.
Yes on its own. I get the back concerns.

How is it flat out false?

The ultimate way to make sure your father doesn't get Covid is not to see them. That's why I haven't seen my mother, who has a lung condition, since August last year. And that's the only time I've seen my parent's in person since this started.

This really isn't hard. It's literally the defining principle of lockdowns. Hard to pass something to someone you don't see.
No, perhaps the best way is to live with him to ensure he never has to leave the house. This is a college kid. I’m confident that if he wasn’t at college he was living with his father.

not to mention, at this point his father might be vaccinated so Fairley could now try and do what he needed to do to take care of his family, whether that’s rehab, meeting agents, etc etc.

If so it will be because of limited tape or decency bias and not because of “they don’t love football enough.” Don’t think we will see penei or slater drop really due to opt out.
