    Actually, after 8 months of observing this in labs, hospitals and the field, we have a very good idea of how its spread....by droplets. It's more contagious than the flu but less contagious than the measles (you could just stroll into a room with a measles patient and be infected in less than a minute in the old days before vaccines). But that makes its ability to spread very effective. And indoor recirculating air room make more effective spreading although outdoors is not entirely safe either, especially in close quarters.

    Still, the Titans -Vikings game was an interesting (and unintentional) experiment since the Titans had active COVID cases and apparently didn't spread it to the Vikings players during a football game. Was it luck? Maybe. But it is a data point that is useful.

    Uh, no. The science doesn't support your assertion.

    Actually, PK didn't break this, Steve Layman did at WTVF last week. But it didn't register nationally, probably since fewer people follow him on Twitter. It took PK (and his Twitter followers) and some actual photos of the event for the NFL to notice. And they aren't happy.

    Exactly, nobody knows how it's spread. You would've thought the whole Utah Jazz team would've caught COVID before it was a thing, not just 2 players.

    That's why I say the NFL can't lay the wood down on punishment, due to the fact that nobody knows a damn thing about this virus.

    Sounds like a technicality they "shouldn't get punished for, frankly.

    Since the Titans haven't spread it to other teams the only punishment should be is fines...possibly forfeit a game, but hopefully the next (healthly) man up and play the game.

    Personally I think a shutdown would be in everyone's best interest.

    Did you notice the quotation marks around the word finally? I put them there for a reason.

    Has no one from the Titans came out and just straight up said "This was before the memo went out that we couldn't meet outside of the facility"? Seems like a reasonable approach if that's what happened.

    Nothing any of us says right now is going to do any good until we lift all of these stupid restrictions and get back to normal.

    Whatever, some of you people must love being locked down for a BS virus that has a death rate in line with the flu for 99.97% of the people who catch it.

    Like I’ve said, anyone for these draconian measures didn’t lose their job or lose a business they spent a lifetime building. We’ll probably see more deaths from suicide, drug overdoses and stress related heart attacks, etc. than this little bug.
