Again. Others can hide in their homes. They are free not to leave. But you nor anyone else are free to tell me how to live my life
Agreed, I cannot. But an entity fully has the right to decide if they will allow you in or not.

You can also speed 120 mph everywhere...that is your right. But your freedom does not override others' freedom or safety.

If they do temperature checks and require face masks, why not?
Let me change the statement. If hospitals are full at a time of the year when viruses naturally become more virulent, there is next to zero chance that governments will allow 100k people to be in the same place at once. It's simply too much of a risk to overwhelm an already strained resource. If the current trend doesn't continue, and by Fall there is no meaningful risk of overwhelming hospitals, then sure, temps and masks is likely viable. I imagine that the gates at Neyland would flow smoothly with temp checks in addition to the body cavity searches they've added in recent years.

No one expects 100k to be allowed in.

Should be simple. Students who want to play, let them play. They don’t, let them sit out. Coaches who want to coach, let them coach. They’re scared, let them sit out. Fans want to attend. Let them attend. They’re scared, let them stay home. That’s life. It involves risk. Stop making decisions for me.

We''ve got a few big fellas that can step up. Savion Williams was serviceable last year. Gives Mincey, Middleton, Harris or Bumphus a chance to step up. Omari Thomas isn't even on the list below and he would be the second highest rated in the group.

Here we go again. 🙄 I think it’d kill us to talk about something else other than I dunno NOT OUR JOB TO FIGURE IT OUT. Sheesh, y’all. Let’s actually talk about Tennessee like the whole purpose of this forum, y‘know?
Brotha it is 5 o' clock on a Friday

Sit back and just...

COVID hospitalizations in Tennessee have increased by 250% in the last month. We aren't out of beds yet, but the trend isn't good. Putting 100k people in a stadium in the fall may not be wise.
woah
I thought wearing masks prevented you from getting it....
That’s what there forcing us to do atleast
If the hospitals didn’t prepare after what happened in the spring then shame on them
More testing equals more cases while dropping the death rate

God help us if we actually need any of you “ don’t tell me how to live” people to do your part to help others. Let’s be real, football season wouldn’t be held hostage by politics if everyone would have just helped out. ELE guys, everybody love everybody.
it isnt hard.

it's the premise of Christianity.

Though I shall walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil for thou art with me.

It’s incredibly complicated yet not. We tried to shut down and the federal gov showed that they will only help the rich with massive bailouts. They’ll throw everyone else some crumbs in the form of 1200. Same as it ever was.

We can’t afford to shut down again because the repercussions of that are far worse than what the virus is doing. Keep the faith and press forward. This bug really isn’t that bad. In fact it’s shown us just how weak this country’s infrastructure has become. Hopefully we will address it properly
