    Hard to argue with this.

    We do need to keep things in perspective.

    I'm sorry, but for this year I find this philosophy excessively Panglossian. I could say that I hope the players don't have to learn the lesson of proper and subdued behavior at a virtual funeral, but I won't.

    I also hope the players don’t have to learn that lesson, truly, but that doesn’t change the fact that sport provides more than just entertainment.

    Let's be real, most of the players who are complaining that football season is going forward are going to be going to parties and not taking day-to-day precautions on a campus full of students who also won't be taking precautions.

    Can we pull the plug this year and have a next year to come back to? Can we pull the plug this year and have spring sports to come back to?

    Like I said from day 1, either its 100% off or 100% on. No In between. This half a$$ crap is not going to cut it.

    NCAA D3 pulled the plug. Nothing will be “better” until at least 2022 (hopefully a vaccine in place). Can no D1 sports be played until Spring of 2022 and small budget D1 programs survive? Don’t get me wrong I’d go to GS games even if we were D3 non scholarship.

    Not sure what all these “demands” of protection from Covid19 made by the players are coming from? Going to BiLo one can “catch” the virus. If the players are demanding a guarantee they won’t catch the virus well lots of luck with that demand.

    Using this logic, we should shut down GS completely and maybe that’s what you’re advocating. This would have devastating effects to our school. Everything I’ve read says this virus does not have devastating effects to young, healthy people. I guess we’ll have to see what long-term implications are. However, if they’re going to be in school and at parties, there’s very little additional risk in playing football.

    I don't think anyone who doesn't want to play should have to choose between their scholarship and taking the risk with the virus. But if you don't want to partake in team activities with other people who are going to be closely monitored for the disease then you have no business being on a college campus that's going to be full of 18-22 year olds whose concern about the disease is going to be small. Go back home and do online learning for the semester.
