    The risk to the general public is minute when compared to most other situations as far as I can tell. This smacks of Wolf making an example out of a very visible, high profile group of people. These teams are cloistered away as much as possible to avoid getting sick in the first place. He has no say in Jacksonville this Sunday anyway, right? The Steelers and Eagles brass should tell him to piss up a rope.

    Go look at photos of athletes in 1918, specifically baseball players. They all played wearing masks. And everyone on the stands was wearing masks.
    Everyone seemed to have survived the mask wearing.

    According to what Lolley and Williamson were talking about yesterday the mask wearing for most sports in PA is giving the NFL an exemption but everything else from wrestling to amateur Basketball leagues are required.

    Your comparing baseball in 1918 with football in 2020? I think things have changed a little since then and comparing the 1918 flu that killed 1/10th of the world population with Covid-19 is a stretch. Did you see those 1918 fans 6 feet apart as well? I'd be fine if we could let all into the stadiums if we just wore masks. Apples and oranges IMO>

    The Steelers and Eagles have 6 regular season games between them remaining. Counting playoffs? 3 more, max. If the Wolf administration thought those games posed such a risk to the general population, then why wouldn't they petition or appeal in some manner to the league to either cancel the games outright or have them played elsewhere? The answer is that they won't because it would be a P.R. disaster. The next best thing is to get the NFL to work for them. "See, the professional athletes are wearing masks while in public, doing their jobs. Why aren't you?" Pitt has a game tomorrow against VT at Heinz Field. How many college games are scheduled to be played in Pa.? Why not make them wear masks?

    Think about it. The bigger risk(s) are people gathering without social distancing sans masks drinking and partying. I heard of deaths from Covid where contact tracing proved the infection came from a social gathering like a wedding, birthday party or just a good 'ole kegger at someone's camp. I don't like Wolf at all, but I will admit that overall, he has done a good job with the cards he's been dealt. In my opinion, this discussion about requiring NFL players to wear masks is simply ridiculous. I think the NFL is doing a pretty good job with the protocols they have in place as long as teams follow them to the letter.

    I almost came to blows with two guys at work and their insistence that their freedom was being infringed on. My brother in law thought that so when his girls had Covid-19 and came home for a day to do laundry he didn't mask up. Then he came up to work on our car and ended up with Covid-19 and giving it to both of his parents. My wife and stepdaughter had to be tested as well. I followed CDC guidelines and masked up and didn't get it. He is now a firm believer in masks.

    I agree almost wholeheartedly, but when it comes to blows, well she can take her mask off.

    Listened to my brother go off with his anti-mask rant at the end of the summer. When he's on his soap box, it is a study in futility trying to reason with him. I just said you do what you do and I'll do what I do and I'll see you again when it's safe to do so without a mask on.

    no one was more careful than me when it came to masks and washing my hands. I even wore gloves to the supermarket. Sanitized the shopping cart and my hands. Stayed at least 6 feet away from everyone. I'm 65 so I'm at a higher risk. I got it anyway. So there's the effectiveness of masks. Are you telling me that none of the people getting it right now never wore a mask? I was sick with what felt like a bad cold for about 5 days. Now I'm fine. Wife had it she's 63 was sick for about 4 days and was fine. So please don't tell me masks are effective in fighting this disease. I wear a mask because I want people to leave me the hell alone. That's the ONLY reason I wear one now. So go ahead and mask up if you want that's your right. But please don't tell me it's effective

    I cannot breathe well with a mask on. So I guess I'm full of crap. I stopped going to church because I am unable to sit for an hour and a half while breathing into a mask. When in the store I pull it down when I can so I can get a breathe and move on. But I appreciate your evaluation of me as being full of crap. Thank you

    im a superintended for a high end custom home builder. I’ve been in construction decades. I’ve worn masks for 8-10 hours a day for lord knows how many days. I’ve never had carbon dioxide poisoning or upper respiratory infections or any of the other crap found on those stupid videos and memes. This crying over wearing a mask thing is ****ing asinine. Put a mask on walk in the grocery store and leave 30 minutes later. Oh the horror. No shirt, no shoes, no service. Well now you can add masks to the list.

    I just call them like I see them so to speak. Only in this instance it’s from decades of wearing them for 8-10 hours a day.

    Again...If you're 330 pounds, smashing into someone of similar weight...play after play... Don't Tell me having a mask on wouldn't affect your breathing... I'm not a Doctor but I can GUARANTEE you, your breathing would be more rapid, and constricted...Fight me! :beee:
