2. What made me livid about this was the article I just saw in the Philly Inquirer

(from last night) that had this excerpt -

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson tests positive for coronavirus

by EJ Smith, Les Bowen and Jeff McLane, Posted: August 2, 2020- 9:04 PM


Pederson was believed to have contracted the virus from outside the facility, according to ESPN. Pederson said just last week, as the Eagles continued to bring players in for training camp, that he felt “extremely safe” at the team facility in South Philadelphia. He praised the new protocols put in place by the NFL.

“I feel extremely safe,” Pederson said. “Obviously, coming into it, there might have been some skepticism about the testing and the screening that goes on. But this is very thorough. When you’re here, you get tested in the morning, you’ve got a screening process you have to go through to get into the building, wearing masks in the building everywhere we go, I feel extremely safe. “This is our bubble, right here in NovaCare.”

But the NFL’s return won’t be in a “bubble” similar to the environments constructed by the NBA, NHL, and MLS. Coaches and players are permitted to leave the NovaCare and return to their homes and are free to socialize without contact tracing.



The idiotic mentality appears to be that somehow, they truly believe that when they go into the practice facility/stadium "bubble", that they are automatically cleansed of all contact that they had OUTSIDE OF THE FACILITY! This stupidity of "I'm safe here" and then when they go home for the night, they act as if the facility also shields them along their entire route home and from every other place they go when not there.

The Philadelphia Health Director has already been swamped dealing with the damn Marlins and half their team being infected and eventually bused back to Florida after quarantining here for 5 days, let alone the couple of Phillies staffers/coaches also infected, and now here comes the NFL.

I think the only bubble that seems to have "held" so far are the two NHL ones in Canada (because the NBA and MLS bubbles have had some breaches already and both are down in the coronavirus nightmare state).
