I really wonder if the news is wrong, as a parent I would allow them to wear a chip bracelet in contact with skin attached like a hospital bracelet non removable without cutting. I just can't see all the parents being on the same page with this intrusive controlling mechanism. This, in my opinion sets a negative connotation for controlling things to come.

Completely unacceptable especially when any given player really has little choice in reality but to go along. This, unfortunately, is where we are headed as a society. Stoke the fear porn and throw in pseudo-science from "expert" talking heads and our freedoms are gone.
Yep. Compliance by fear/peer pressure. When does a person lose their right to be a free American...and become property of the state? I think we are seeing the beginnings...

Really smart of the SEC to embrace this technology, as it helps protect members of all the teams by allowing really quick contact tracing, and the devices are worn, not implanted. Beyond the obvious protection of people who may be at-risk, the league is also protecting itself financially, as game cancellations mean more lost revenue. This is an incredibly easy solution.
If the general public were able to widely use similar technology the country would be in much better shape. We have to understand WHERE the Virus is before effectively fighting it, until vaccines are widely available.
Can any of you imagine what this Pandemic would be like if this virus were more deadly, like Ebola? Right now there would be MILLIONS dead just in the US. Diseases don't care what party we support, or how free or enslaved we might feel. It just infects us, and then does its thing. You've got to stop it by any means available. The Black Plague killed an estimated 50 million in Europe in the 1300's, or 60% of their entire population. I can live with a little inconvenience to keep my family safe...

If they are worn and not inserted then this is all good

But if they are inserted we have issues

I for one (and I guess the only one) would not be "chipped". That is a blatant invasion of my privacy and I would not allow it. If it meant no play, then so be it. We as individuals need to say enough is enough. C-19 and it's health fear mongers who are making money by reporting the effects of C-10 the way they are. (total number of cases from the start verses total number recovered, not active cases and what % of ICU beds are available, does this include beds being used for all types of needs or just beds that are available for C-19 They will not dictate or would not dictate to me. I know it would be "cutting my nose off to spite my face" but that's the way I feel.

Second thought: bold underline.
