30 LSU players in QT just recently and they are one of the most advanced and cautious teams in sports medicine and protocol.

Then, you have teams like UT, Bama, Clemson, and etc.

I know NFL is gonna wait till the last second to make any decisions, but what is a team going to do if 30 players are on QT at the start of the season. Do they just forfeit the game?

Afterall is there really any other choice?
Yeah, there is. We ride it out until there is a vaccine and/or effective antivirals for it. Especially for people who have comorbidities that drastically increase their risk of long-term damage or death, like old age, obesity, diabetes, or hypertension.

We need to decide who are we talking about in this thread?

People with comorbidities that drastically increase their risk of long-term damage or death, like old age, obesity, diabetes, or hypertension?

Or New Orleans Saints and LSU football players who happen to reside in the demographic where they are at a much, much, much lower risk for long-term damage or death?

Fair points, but I was mostly just addressing the point made by the poster saying that we might as well just go back to normal because "what else can we do".

LOL. The last part is the problem. We know a relatively small amount about this, and it too early to think we have it figured out. The long term effects are still being analyzed, and it's only a matter of time when an elite athlete gets seriously sick or worse.

So, I didn't read the entire thread, first few pages & maybe this was discussed already, so if so, please overlook my lack of patience. The OP posted that " 30 LSU players in QT just recently " but did not state or possibly the OP doesn't know, but just because people are "quarantined" does not mean they are sick with the virus. The obvious political ties to this whole thing has me very untrusting anytime I see numbers or hear about new cases, when no one every goes into the details of the cases themselves. I live in Michigan & was listing to the radio news on the way to work just yesterday & they were talking about the number of "new cases" but never said what they mean by that. We know for a fact they are doing a lot more testing here in MI for the virus & thus you would see an increase of reports, some people with the virus & showing symptoms, some asymptomatic but not sick or showing any signs of being sick & some who've already gone through, built up the antibody & are now no longer able to get or give the current strand.

So unless your talking about 30 players literally sick & in need of medical care, then your just talking about people who are not sick & are ether asymptomatic or have the antibody, both of which they count as a "new case" if not previously done so & will in fact make a healthy asymptomatic/antibody person go into quarantine, for some stupid reason.. which to me again is where the political crap goes into effect. So details, details, details folks, their not telling us everything & it's hard to know what to do without all the info. Just my 2cents.

They will of course, by all means try to start the season. But my interpretation of your post, GUARANTEEING THERE WILL BE FOOTBALL, a new born could have predicted as much.

And I am saying, there will be no football, in the sense of a complete season. That is to be clear. If you want to quantify; guaranteed football, on a partial season, that is dumb!

As far as betting goes. 15 years of betting, for a half a year, is like being a child. Try 45 years of wagering on horses, baseball, football, basketball, you name it, then come talk to me. Be that as it may, I offered you a chance to gamble, and you chose not to. I was willing to gamble on a proposition that I proposed that you did not like. How about making one up and let’s see what you can come up with!

And by the way, my proposition is no different then wagering on any type of over/under bet. And do not tell me, you have not wagered on same, or similar props., IF your claim of 15 years of half year wagering is the truth.
If you're going to try to badger someone into a wager, at least go about it with something different than the essential equivalent of "are you chicken??? Bok bok bok"......... An impulsive 4th grader with ADD would be able to spot what you're attempting.
