    If I wanted to read a bunch of back and forth bickering about a non sports topic, I would head on over to Facebook.

    we can. the first thread was just asking why covid is not a 'thing' in the NFL this year. there are lots of reasons why that is, why cant it be discussed?

    Bull****. It was a way to make an anti-vaxxer argument and it doesn't belong on this board. Neither does the other side. I was shocked they let the discussion go that long and I have no problem with them shutting that thread or this one.

    Because it’s a hot button topic One minute were talking about Covid and the next minute it gets heated as in political. I’ve got family members I can’t even discuss with without an argument breaking out so personally I avoid it all together.

    An NFL player is out because of Covid plenty fine to mention it but the whole Big Brother is for the sites own welfare. I’m sure you meant well.

    Just my take from previous threads relating to this subject.

    What? I started that thread and it had nothing to do with vaccinations BS or whatever.

    Seems strange that the rest of the US is testing positive for Covid everywhere right now, but the NFL is showing ZERO positive tests for all its players this year.

    It was more about the NFL's Covid Policy for players this season. And, If Connor Heyward tested positive for Covid on Friday as the injury report says "Illness", which I believe is the NFL's secret word this year for "Positive Covid" test, would he have to sit out for the recommended 5 days and miss Monday's game.

    Great, another person who probably never wrote a science paper at even the high school level, never mind a research document on anything telling us “to do our research” while usually forwarding some no name (much less peer reviewed) website with a YouTube link in a weak attempt at confirmation bias.

    Over a million people dead in the US alone over two+ years and who knows how many million worldwide.

    This was a GLOBAL issue, not some Biden, Obama, Killery:facepalm:, Soros, Gates scheme no matter what the Q flat earthers want to make it out to be.

    Sheesh….

    These are well-stated reasons why, and I don’t need to add much. Some subjects always go off on a non-football tangent, and usually get ugly if allowed to continue.

    It was an NFL related thread, until it wasn't. Which wasn't very many posts in. Not your fault, it was a legitimate question but also one that could easily lead to a derailed thread.

    I thought it was a legit topic, although I understand why it got moved. Covid is a hot button issue and the thread would have no doubt gotten derailed by people's political views.

    Well it wouldn't be an issue if women were paid more fairly for comparable jobs as their male counterparts. And abortion? Don't get me started on that topic. I mean, my body my choice, right? And why is it that people can't just identify with which ever of the 99 different genders that they want? And who cares if some dude wants to tuck his junk and swim against the girls. They just need to train harder for crying out loud. And why wouldn't any sane person agree that there should be more restrictions on being able to buy a gun?

    Well, that ought to do it. Did I mention that this post should be in green font? Sort of....

    Well Brice, do you think maybe they are showing Zero positive tests because they have given Zero tests as you were already informed
