    That is boldly misguided. Let’s use PP as an example/ he has diabetes which places him in a high risk group. How many players have asthma? How many lineman are obese or have other health problems?

    We have had multiple athletes contract it already. 4 Dbacks alone had it as asymptomatic.

    Most that get it wouldn't even know without the enhanced testing.

    I absolutely believe athletes will get it and it will determine the outcome of the season because of the quarantine.

    I also believe the death rate is very overstated right now. We are only testing those that get sick and the majority never even exhibit symptoms.

    This is a very good article about why all our numbers are garbage right now

    The article is about how when isolated we see a much higher percentage of asymptomatic cases then expected.

    This is consistent with our partners in NY who tested entire staff at facilities they service and found that most had contracted COVID and had no idea.

    The higher the testing, the lower the death percentage. This is a complete fact.

    Yes, but it doesn't say "our numbers are garbage right now." It actually says:

    I agree that we don't know what the case fatality rate is, within any demographic.

    And this is all ignoring:

    coaches, staff, media

    morbidities - the permanent damage done to younger healthier people’s organs by Covid

    families and resulting community spread

    Not all about players. Not all about death. Why are you ignoring THOSE facts?

    Sorry I meant initially when the death figures were made we were testing the sick.

    Now with increased testing mortality is falling

    It doesnt mean it's not dangerous. I just believe the risk isn't bad for the athletes

    Chris -Low mortality rates may be encouraging unless you're on of the unlucky few who get hammered.
