One of the more laughable news items is when professional athletes are excluded from participating upon testing positive for COVID-19.
It’s extremely unlikely that a quarterback or receiver is going to contract COVID-19 out in the middle of the playing field from another player, then sit down on the 50 yard line and eat a cheeseburger.
COVID-19, like most of the respiratory illnesses is not spread primarily by air droplets alone.
In order for COVID-19 to spread, a person must cough on their hands, shake hands with (or transmit by fomite to) another person after which that person must pick up food that they plan to put in their mouth without washing their hands first.
That is how COVID-19 is spread.
COVID-19 is extremely unlikely to spread by respiratory droplets alone. The infectious dose is too low when dispersed in the air, and the lower respiratory epithelium has too many defenses.
So is it likely that an NFL player will sit down in the middle of a game and eat a cheeseburger without washing his hands first?
Is this likely to occur on an NFL playing field?
So then why is the NFL excluding players who test positive for COVID-19?
Partly out of ignorance, and partly to institute fascism within the United States.
What do you expect from you listen to a knucklehead like Anthony Fauci?
Your NFL is a giant corrupt corporation that is a puppet of Corporate America.
They do what Corporate America tells them to do.
The NFL’s job is to sell fear so that the elites can usher in their worker’s paradise.
Shameless Roger Goodell leads the way.
It’s bad enough that NFL quarterbacks make $40 million a year; they want more.
And they will help Corporate America get more of your money, power and dignity.
This is why idiotic NFL commentators wear a face mask when they’re standing in the middle of the field all by themselves.
They’re selling fear.
They’re selling stupidity.
They’re selling serfdom.
Smile, enjoy their product, then walk away.
Refuse to buy into their idiocy.
