Maybe you are right. His family probably agrees with you. What do i know..

No point in trying to save one coach or kid. Lets just go about our day and lettem get sick.

Ridiculous.

Save them? Lol. What do you or me have to do with what an adult does (coach) or what they should or should not allow their kids to do (play)? Risks exist everywere. Driving a car or riding a bike to practice is just one of them.

We have flattened the curve. Time to get back on with living and stop the panic.

If you want to hide under your bed with a hazmat suit on to wait until your betters tell you that it is safe for you to come out then that is your prerogative. (Edit: That's probably a bad place to hide, because that is where scary monsters live so i'd pick someplace else to hide.)

I'm out and I'm letting my kids out to play sports. Don't worry about me or mine, because I certainly don't need you to save us.

let me guess. you are a democrat. you get a check from the government every week. or maybe you work at the grocery store and get a check every week. please fill us all in on when it will be appropriate for us to actually having a life. i am guessing your answer is not until the virus is gone or maybe until the whole country is in the sh!tter.

what happened to this board is that there were no sports to talk about, which meant we got to see the actual, ugly demographics that dominate most sports message boards.

Every life counts but unfortunately we are in a pandemic so people will die no matter what we do. The question should be what are the appropriate levels of safeguards to protect as many people as possible while protecting our quality of life.

Also, the coach who died had a BMI of about 42 so perhaps he should have exercised extra caution.

This dead horse has been beaten to a pulp. My takeaway is that those who believe in personal responsibility and self risk assessment are all for getting back to some sense of normalcy in life. While those who believe that government knows best and should be able to make risk assessments and decisions for individuals want eternal lockdown or something close to it. Its as simple as that. Im partial to personal freedom for each to make what feel is best decision for themselves, family, and community. I am also fully supportive of you in your decision to lock yourself in the basement until you deem it safe to come out.

WHY IS THE POINT THAT PEOPLE THAT HAVE O BLOOD ARE VERY LESS LIKELY TO GET THE VIRUS. ALMOST 50% OF THE US POPULATION HAS O BLOOD. I IMAGINE ABOUT 50% OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM IS O. A LOT ON THE TEAM HAVE HAD IT. A LOT WILL NEVER GET IT. I GUESS TELLING PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE MORE UNLIKELY TO GET IT IS NOT PART OF THE NARRATIVE.

Dear Cornflake:

I own a business. I employ 6 dedicated amazing people, all in different stages of family life. We discussed “shutting” down. But it turns out, they are essential employees to their respective families and wanted to keep going. For one older gal, we modified her scope to keep her out of a few of our riskier situations but lol asked her to do her part, so she is trying to quit smoking. Win win.

My point being, life is full of choices. As a grown A$$ man, that coach has many choices in life. No guarantees as to how they are going to work out. My guess is you couldn’t keep him locked in his house without armed guards. Like many of us, hiding from the world isn’t an option we choose. The risk from COVID just doesn’t scare us or shut us down. We move forward.

The Current loss of life is Tragic? Perhaps, but it also just part of life. As is the death of every moron who drinks and drives or smokes himself into a fat lung full of tumors. Sometimes you don’t get to choose, and bad luck gets you.

You are welcome to mitigate your risk by avoiding the outside world. Protect you and yours to whatever extent you deem necessary.

For those of us trying to keep the world moving. Contribute to the economy. Pay our bills. Live our lives, get off our backs. That coach, like the lady checking you out in the grocery store, and the AC technician repairing your unit in the summer heat, the nail salon technician and the gym owner, are just trying to get through this by making the best choices for them.

Don’t judge. Go back in your basement and hopefully the rest of us will keep the ship afloat so when you feel safe enough to emerge there will be something left.

few sentences. You say don't judge as you seem to be judgmental yourself.

I respect people, like you, who make sound decisions and even take the time to explain why to those who may not understand.

What I don't understand are people going to bars, not wearing masks in public, etc, etc.

It's not just personal responsibility, it's a responsibility to the cormmunitity. I'll take your smoking example...

Sure go ahead and smoke up until you have black lung but don't smoke in restaurants. Drink yourself into oblivion but don't drive drunk. The list goes on...

What I also don't agree with saying, "oh that's life people die". Hugely callous. I had a family member who would still be here probably if not for COVID. Do I know for sure? No one knows. But wait until it gets close to you. You will feel differently I promise. But it shouldn't take that either.

And I am sorry, it wasn't the "libtards (sorry Cornflake)" against wearing masks in the first place. Can't even believe that was ever a debate. Pure stupidity.

Links are below, but here are the basic known FACTS:

* He was 42 years old
* He was never confirmed for COVID-19
* He had been self-quarantined with similar symptoms (which could be any number of viruses or illnesses, including but certainly not limited to COVID-19)

“He did self-quarantine a week ago Thursday,” said Lafayette County Schools Superintendent Adam Pugh. “I don’t know the symptoms he had, but he felt like he needed to do that. I don’t know if that contributed to his death . . . I simply don’t know the answer to that.”

“No one has told me officially that he had COVID, but I do know he was self-quarantining this week,” Pugh said.

In short, we have no idea why he died or what he died of. But suspicion is enough for a salacious news headline these days because, hey - we need more panic, right??!!

In other news, approx 2 days ago, a coach with the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns died of a heart attack. So to update your numbers, that's two coaches who have died this academic season so far. Not sure how many coaches there are combined at the high school and college level in the United States, but I'm pretty sure it's in the hundreds of thousands. We have TWO that have died this academic year so far. None were yet to be CONFIRMED with COVID-19 or that it was the cause of death.

Just another case of media hype at the moment until the true cause of death is determined. If they find no link to COVID-19, I'm pretty sure we'll not really hear much about that as opposed to if they do. We only need to know select information, apparently.

If said coach actually died from COVID, is there any indication that he got the virus because of his coaching duties? If not, then the only football issue is potential exposure to players and staff, but that's why Clemson and most P5 schools test weekly and follow strict protocol.

It seems some people are just better than others. Did every life matter to you before this current coronavirus strain? That was only a few months ago. Have you always worn a mask to prevent spreading a virus to others with underlying conditions? If not, you are just another hypocrite.

I can say with absolute confidence that i have never knowingly endangered someone elses life and had i thought i might kill someone by being around them if i was sick or not wearing a mask, i would have done everything i could to prevent it.

I think most decent people can say this too. Also, this is the first pandemic of my lifetime and yes, i do all i can to do my part to limit the spread. Now if im still some sort of hypocrite then whateva. I am not alone in my feelings on this.

"Every life matters to me."

I call BS.

What are you doing to save "every life?"
What are you doing to improve "every life?"

What does "matters" really mean to you?
And does "every life" really "matter" anywhere else than on Social Media to you?

Because it seems as though you mean "I pontificate at all perceived injustice and tragedy in the world from the safety of my couch."

Obviously, I don't know you, but that's what i deduce from your overly pious statement. If it were true, you wouldn't have to say it. It would be implied as an underlying basis for your suggestion on starting a GoFundMe account for the guy's family or something.

Can you cite one College Athlete that has died from Corona? Can you cite any person under the age of 20 that has died from Corona?
If you by chance can find anybody under the age of 20 that died were they given Hydroxchloriquine?
