Are the people who are currently refusing to wear masks

in public during this pandemic the same ones who refused to wear motorcycle helmets when there was a law on the books (in SC) about that?

I personally never saw why it was such an imposition to wear a helmet. The only things you were giving up was the right to get dirt in your eye, bugs in your teeth, at the cost of probably saving your life in a wreck. By NOT wearing a helmet, you were taking away MY right to NOT have your brains splattered all over my windshield in case of an accident.

Refusing to wear a mask in public when mandated makes just about as much sense to me. It's the same as the debate about legalizing Pot. I don't care about the pros and cons, if it's a law, or has been mandated, just comply for Pete's Sake. But, some have this "Don't Tread on Me" attitude about every single thing in life. I guess these are the people who wake up every morning just looking for something to be "triggered" about. I suspect there are very few happy days for them.

Cotton, the relevance to Clemson is the reason football is in jeopardy is the ME attitude about masks instead of working together . The Big 10 and Pac 12 have the other power 5 schools thinking. Point from post was we have risked a great deal (football) just to be a jerk about a simple thing. If you followed this blog many posters were strongly suggesting if you want football wear the #### mask. They are probably correct. Clemson can have a great program for safety but but what about the opponent.


Just stop with this nonsense.

Masks would not have made athletes any safer. "Getting it under control" does not reduce risk, to players or anyone. Just stop.

Well, the Big 10 and Pac 12 who just canceled their seasons says your wrong.

There is no debate here. If we don't get rid of the virus, we go into a depression.

Do a search on Google for the names of the major companies that have gone bankrupt. This isn't overblown like some seem to love to claim.

51 Million people in total have filed for unemployment since March. Some have gone back to work, most have not.

If every US citizen wore their mask, then shutdowns wouldn't have been needed and the virus would be gone from the planet? And the Big 10 and PAC 12 could play football without concern to players or fans? They would be safer then?

Companies have gone under because of government shutting down the economy not because of a few people not wearing masks, most of which aren’t very effective anyway.

I don't refuse to wear one - I have one in my car to wear as needed, but I think it's more often than not rather pointless. I've been in Barnes & Noble with no one within 20ft of me, much less 6ft of me. I've been in Wal-Mart with the same, but then in line people are still 2ft apart just like normal and think the mask completely removes the need to social distance, even though they're wearing theirs beneath their nose. I've been in restaurants where the servers are wearing them beneath their nose or even beneath their mouths.

No matter where I am, whether masked or not, I try to respect others around me and keep a healthy distance. I think it's a reasonable precaution and I'm ok with social distancing. If I'm in a congested environment where social distancing isn't practical, then I'm not opposed to a mask, but I don't wear one if it's not necessary or required, especially when half or more of the employees don't even wear them correctly.

I don't shy away from telling people my take on this. There are many articles that have said that this virus is here to stay and will not be going away - not in the spring, not next summer, not next year. Other pandemic viruses remained, and this one is expected to as well. There is no vaccine yet, and none are on the horizon. The best bet at this point is to let the virus work its way through the community through those who are generally healthy and especially younger (not me - I'm 50!) so that some herd immunity can develop.

I don't ridicule those who wear masks (well, maybe those who do so alone in the car!) because everyone has strong opinions about this. Likewise, I don't like being ridiculed about my opinion, but that's the world these days, so who cares. But my personal thought on all the mandates is that the government is seeing the concern people have over this, stoked by the incessant media reporting, and want to respond. Politicians don't like real solutions that may take time. They like quick patches that make it look like they're doing something. This is just another example of that, in my opinion. Wearing masks won't hurt, and it may "slow the spread," but it will NOT stop the spread and will not fully protect anyone.

I had a friend who died after testing positive back in July, 47 years old, wore a mask every day at work. He worked as a nurse at a nursing home. He tested positive and approx 2 weeks later was dead. Did the mask keep him from contracting it for a while? Maybe. Who knows. But NONE of the masks you see out in public day in and day out will stop the virus. They MAY stop particulates (spittle, coughs, etc), but that's it. I liken it to the old lap belts we had in the cars that really didn't do much except make you think it would help.

I will use my good judgement to protect myself and will respect those who choose to wear masks. If someone is more vulnerable, by all means wear a mask, or better yet, stay home. That's the most sure bet. Other than that, we need to accept that it's not going anywhere, masks and time won't kill it, and we need to live our lives and get the herd immunity built up, which is the most effective way of killing it. Just my 2 cents.

I am always comforted when I see people driving their cars or outside walking in wide open air with thier masks on. These are the good folks who are making the virus go away. I imagine some people wear them while sleeping. These are the true patriots.

I wish we could round up all these non mask wearers, so we can "prevent" the spread of this global virus and play football. Because once it's "under control" nobody will catch it. Fans and players would never catch it then, and only then can we resume life.

There are obvious clear examples where magic covid COVID leaders implemented magic COVID prevention measures, and they eradicated the virus. China is a good example. Russia. India. Europe. These magic COVID leaders are world examples. If only Trump followed their magic COVID prevention measures, then we could be assured of playing football.

If only we mandated masks months ago and filled the streets with a million additional mask police (jobs!), then there would be no concerns with playing sports. It wouldn't be spreading then, and we could all feel 100% safe. Oh, and of course, athletes must wear a mask while playing sports as well. Only makes sense. Then we can be super sure nobody in sports will get sick.

I've already submitted my patent application for an integrated mask/mouthpiece. When I become rich, my goal is to build my own mask company. I am tired of buying my made-in-China masks, and honestly I wouldn't be surprised if the Chinese are infecting these masks before shipping them. You know how they seek world domination and all.

Trump could have made this global pandemic disappear months ago. 13 million dead people lie at his feet, yet he is still refusing to fix it. Unreal.

Just my opinion.

Stop blaming Trump because GOVERNORS didn't require masks for their citizens. The darn things are worthless AND they cause your body not to expel the necessary Carbon Dioxide your body needs to get rid of. You breathe in Oxygen, expel carbon dioxide. Its really not safe to wear a mask for an extended period of time.

Mandating masks is just a way for people to feel safe whether they are or not. All of this hysteria will go away as soon as the election is over. Then the Dumbocrats will come up with some other hysteria.

is still spreading. It would be under control or "very likely" gone if everyone wore masks.

China is a great example. 100% of them have been wearing masks since December. They have eradicated the virus, and football season is moving forward. If everyone wore masks here, then we would have it under control, it wouldn't be spreading or likely even eradicated, and then we could be resuming normal life without fear. Like the Chinese and Russians.

Getting it under control is the idea. There would be no issues playing a contact sport, if we only had this global virus under control. I'm with ya Judge. You go girl!

I wondered if people moan and complain as much about rights when they see a "No Smoking" or "Shirts and Shoes Required" sign on a retailer's door as they do about masks or is this just because it's an election year?

Smokers always emit nasty smoke when they smoke - both them (2nd hand) and the cigarette. Always. Bare feet in public are always nasty - especially men. No shirts in public are either nasty as well or a huge distraction. Always. People are not always carrying COVID-19. The vast, vast majority are not. If I was presumed to be a smoker, then yes, I would be equally frustrated. But that's not a comparable example.

I disagree. The helmet is a risk to the individual, the non-mask is a risk to the community. Not wearing a mask is kinda like ignoring stoplights or stop signs because it makes your commute longer.

There are two types of people in this world. Those that say "don't tell me what to do" and those that say "I don't want to clean up your mess (using the clean term here)". The problem is that a lot of folks who say "don't tell me what to do" also done want to deal with their own "mess". Thus it makes the "don't clean up you mess folks make rules" that then anger the "don't tell me what to do. Vicious circle evolves

On a side note: I dislike the mandate of seatbelts and helmets. BUT I always felt that those without helmets (or seatbelts) should absorb 100% of the personal medical cost if they chose to opt to go without. Thus a texting, suspended license, drunk driver in an derelict car without brakes would only be liable for property damage. The so-called freedom isn't free. No need to have a "requirement" but follow the out-of-pocket cost. I know I am extreme, but if basic PPE is not involved, its on that person.

selfish, stupid, and misinformed about their own Constitutional rights? Yes. There is no constitutional right not to wear a mask and endanger others. It simply doesn't exist.

40% of cases are asymptomatic, you can have it and spread it, while never feeling any symptoms.

Wearing a mask protects other people, not just you.


Like it, don't like it....if we don't get a handle on the Virus we will slide into a depression.

It's that simple. Wear a mask when indoors with other people. Wash your hands when you get home.
Stay 6 feet away from other people.

We can argue all day about how we got here, but that doesn't matter now...we're here.

As long as the virus is around, our economy will still be crushed. Full Stop.

I wear a mask.

But, masks don't prevent me from getting it. You said it protects me. Wrong. In fact, masks don't stop the spread of respiratory viruses.

Again, NOBODY is claiming a mask may prevent me transferring sneeze, cough, or spit droplets from reaching you. But unfortunately, masks do not stop a spread of a respiratory virus. Even if we say a mask slows the transmission rate, would that make it safer for the Big 10 and PAC 12?

Look, again, stop calling me selfish and those other ridiculous claims. I wear a mask.

But don't try to tell me a mask would have allowed sports to resume with a reduced risk of transmission.

Why do you keep replying to "Karen", yet continue to use your hilarious sense of logic? Are you okay? You may be emotionally unstable, but I honestly don't think you're dumb.

And by the way, why do keep cycling through usernames and TUs just so you can TD every word I say? I'm being completely serious KarenbeKeller, do you feel like you're accomplishing things with TDs? Does that help you ignore the emotionally unstable fact you're currently logged into this site with 3 different usernames? I'm sorry, but that's bizarre behavior. Just really, really strange. You've literally posted with 3 usernames in one than one thread. What the heck is wrong with you??

I'm sorry KarenbeKeller, but emotional immaturity isn't cured with TDs. Its juat not. Contrarily a very strong case could be made that you're only feeding the issue instead of dealing with it.

Please get a grip, ma'am. The more you do it, the more obvious it gets.

I do appreciate you exposing a 3rd handle today though. That was fun. I like where you and Judgebeorange tooks turns TDing the post where you were caught. This is like stealing candy from a baby, except babies have a good reason for acting like babies.

It’s really quite simple. Some choose to follow the speed limit.....some don’t. I wear a mask when the business requires it. If I’m out and about.....not happening. We all have a choice. I’d like to think most of us are aware that there are consequences. Never been big on the government telling how I go about my day. Taxes....sure. That’s a necessary evil. Other than that......nah. They can pretty much kiss my a$$ with all of that......just like politics.....respect others’ preference.......quite simple. After November, it’ll get much better.

The entire discussion is silly and trivial, but since we're helpless to do anything meaningful, let's discuss something trivial and silly and trivial. Again.

Of course we SHOULD wear masks, for the little benefit they bring, unless you have a legitimate medical reason NOT to.

After six months, we now finally realize what masks are good for, and what they're not. They don't cure the disease. They don't keep me healthy. They don't put workers back to work. They DO restrict my breathing. They do give me headaches if i don't change it regularly or find a private place to take it off. They do hide my identity from even my closest friends. They may keep me from infecting myself by touch.

But this discussion is trivial because 1) Gosh, is this the biggest thing we can attempt to agree on anymore? On Tigernet? Really?

2) It's silly to go to so much trouble to mandate mask-wearing when the masks many people wear are only 1.5% effective. That's 98.5% INeffective. And you want to put the force of LAW behind this? If you're going to punish people for not wearing a mask, at least require it be as effective as a Face Shield.

3) I find it really, really, really disrespectful to trash the police as racists, mock them for being powerless, take advantage of their unwillingness to stop protests, defund them and blame them for the racial problems in our urban areas--and then look to them to save us from ourselves by enforcing a mask mandate. Does anyone really expect this mandate to be enforced fairly? Who trusts the cops to perform this vital service to humanity? You know there's gonna be quotas to be met! And the jokes will write themselves about Left-wing politicians who finally find a reason for the police to exist--we've gotta make sure the kids on the playground wear masks, Officer!

Sure, I wear a mask when i'm not outside. About 80% of us do, by my count.

But those of you who really believe this pandemic has gone away in the places where masks are overwhelmingly worn are using obsolete data. This virus is surging all around the globe, masks or not. Keeping a virus suppressed is about like keeping 6 of your daughter's floaties underwater at the same time--maybe you can find a way to do it, but you'll lose it when you resume any normal activities.

Wearing a mask in public is a small price to pay if it gets the Social media/Morality police to shut up. Once we demonstrate some good faith, we'll find out if those "I get my jollies by pretending i'm your mom" folks are willing to discuss more serious problems.

OTOH, that might be why so many people refuse to wear the mask--because once they do, they'll get nagged about something else. Equally trivial and useless.

in public during this pandemic the same ones who refused to wear motorcycle helmets when there was a law on the books (in SC) about that?

I personally never saw why it was such an imposition to wear a helmet. The only things you were giving up was the right to get dirt in your eye, bugs in your teeth, at the cost of probably saving your life in a wreck. By NOT wearing a helmet, you were taking away MY right to NOT have your brains splattered all over my windshield in case of an accident.

Refusing to wear a mask in public when mandated makes just about as much sense to me. It's the same as the debate about legalizing Pot. I don't care about the pros and cons, if it's a law, or has been mandated, just comply for Pete's Sake. But, some have this "Don't Tread on Me" attitude about every single thing in life. I guess these are the people who wake up every morning just looking for something to be "triggered" about. I suspect there are very few happy days for them.

Otay, exiting soapbox and going for the afternoon nap now.


“Just comply”.........how does that feel? Especially when there is, and I want to be clear here, ABSOLUTELY no science behind the wearing of masks relative to the spread of a viral illness. It’s social engineering whether you believe it or not.

There is scientific data that proves DOT helmets work. There is no data that shows that grannys scrap fabric protects from Covid. Mandate N-95/p-100 and I will go along. Mandate totally untested crap and I wont.

I imagine many of both groups just don't like being told what to do.

I think you are exactly right. Cause we are Americans!

And we are smart enough to see through the political BS.

The problem for you is that you're dumb enough to make it political. You're an idiot. Start with that problem and work from there.

The problem is you have no scientific data to support wearing Grannys quilt scraps on your face. N-95? Sure there is some data. Scrap shirt on your face? No data.

I don’t need to see the data, I have multiple doctors telling me masks protect me and protect others even more. These are live conversations, not online nonsense from college football fans. One doctor is an epidemiologist and likely knows more about the virus then folks on this board know about football. This is simply a matter of odds. I beleive the doctors and think my odds are better wearing a mask. I don’t know what political views these doctors have. I don’t care. Politics have zero impact on my decision. Fox, CNN, QAon, and the deep state have no impact on my decision. Not one word from anyone on this board has impacted my decision. I choose to listen to doctors that have implemented protocols, managed cases for decades and have seen the results. You can bank on stats and articles you find online, and maybe you haven’t talked w a doc since the virus started, but you’ll have a tough time convincing me to not listen to the doctors. This is common sense for anyone with a reasonable IQ. Good luck.

They have done tests at 6 ft on all the various masks. Gaters are pretty worthless. A clothe mask is only 30% effective. They help, but are weak. Those blue surgical masks are only 65% effective. Much better of course and help a lot, but we need better. The kn95's are 95% effective. We need everyone wearing those, but there aren't enough of them. Either way, everyone needs to wear a mask and should.
