How is this karma?

It's only karma if you believe that Dan Mullen is a Bad Person who deserves to have Bad Things happen to him. Do you two honestly think that?

My wife is right: this virus is worse than religion & politics combined in how much it's causing people to hate each other.

I think him thinking 90k at a football game right now is reasonable makes him a total moron. This virus is no joke. So for it to happen to his team yeah that's pretty much exactly karma.

Funny how people who claim their position on the virus is based on Science then invoke something like Karma, which I suspect doesn't have much scientific validity. It just seems like an exercise in frustration-vetting, or something.

For my part, I want football stadiums to fill up again. To me, the data shows that the virus has been badly overhyped in terms of restrictions to the general public. We should be providing powerful protections for the very elderly and others with severe conditions, isolating and insulating them, but the notion that everyone should be restricted to protect the most vulnerable is wretchedly costly in terms of collateral damage, and hasn't proven to be very effective either.

I agree to a point. I am 65 in a month and do not have parents that are still alive to worry about. Where I work, someone was tested positive and lives with their in-laws. I can't imagine their predicament since he is 50.

I appreciate that. I have parents who are 80 and 81, so I didn't visit them this year like I normally do. IMO, that's how you handle things like this. If I was a 50 year old and living with elderly relatives and I tested positive, I'd move out that day in to a hotel until I was negative again. In any event, I don't think the freedom of everyone should be significantly curtailed because some people live with older relatives. Just my take.

We've all pointed fingers at others with boneheaded decisions, comments and/or lack of communication. As JR has pointed out, and I agree, it's been, for the most part, as good of a startup to the football season as could be expected.

Yes, if someone had told me a month ago that after three weeks of SEC play we'd have had this tiny number of postponements, I would have been surprised. I expected many more, maybe that the season would have been aborted by now.

And the way some in the mass media have reacted to these postponements, you get the idea they are *hoping* that players catch covid and games have to be canceled, so they can say "I Told You So" and wag their nanny fingers at the conferences for playing.

It's pretty sicko, IMO.

It really has been.

See what I mean?

You want bad things to happen to him because you disagree with him. You justify your desire by stating just how certain you are that you are correct. As if that somehow makes your hatred acceptable.

This virus isn't a joke, but it's not a game either. You're treating it like a game.

I do.
