Titans - Steelers postponed due to COVID.

So how many do you think we end up with before Week 17? And how many draft picks will the LVR lose because they won't wear masks?

I predict the LVR will have at least 1 postponement before the end of the season because their players are stupid and cant follow simple directions.

In the pick-em contest I gave this game one point because I didn't know what else to do.

Baseball had Miami get I think it was 17 people test positive week one of their season and after that everybody but those two idiots from Cleveland took it serious. Maybe this postponed game will make the others aware they gotta take this shit serious if they want to finish the season.

I dont know. NFL players are less risk averse than the average person, so in theory they should get infected at a higher rate than the general public.

4% infection rate would be ~68 players positive at any time.

The NFL has some fairly strict rules in place though for when teams travel and if the players follow the rules that will help. They also are going to be able to do accurate contact tracing if the players all comply with wearing the device.

Cam Newton just tested positive. They're still planning on playing the game but I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being cancelled after more positive tests.

Gilmore is by far the Pats' best player. Cam is more valuable though since QBs are the key.

Uh oh....

STEPHON GILMORE
DB, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

Patriots placed CB Stephon Gilmore on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Gilmore joins Cam Newton as the only Patriots players to test positive. The Patriots cancelled Wednesday’s practice and this likely rules out Gilmore for at least Week 5. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Gilmore had 11 tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble through the first four games.

And 2 more Titans tested positive today so they probably won't be playing this week either.

How is it our 2 best players are the ones with covid. I bet goodell is sneeking into the labs with fake tests. Conspiracy!!!!

And, of course, Gilmore played against the Chiefs so who knows how many people he might have infected.

When does a person become infectious relative to these tests? Thats the big question.

Google says 2-3 days before onset of symptoms you are contagious. If he was tested Tuesday, then he would have theoretically been contagious on Sunday, unless he did not get it from Cam/whatever stripper Cam got it from, and this is a new infection.

Pats-Broncos is postponed. Titans had to shut down again after another guy got Covid so hard to see how they play this week either.

Lulz. NFL is going to piss off the fantasy football players. It would be great if they made an announcement right after the 1 PM games kick off.

NFL will make a decision in next few hours about Bills-Titans game set for Tuesday.

Does this mean you guys will finally get on board for the underdog side bets? :D
Options:
• 3 points for correctly picking how many players will test positive this season
• 3 points for correctly predicting when Belichick will die from COVID

It might mess with the sanctity of the points system, but 3 points for a long-shot? That balances, right? ;D

Belichick is too smart to die from Covid. It's Reid who's going to die from it with his stupid-fuck face shield bullshit. And Reid is actually way fatter than Belichick too.

True, Sam. It may only be Belichick's players who should be afraid of COVID ;D

He's a great coach. Rare for the Belichick tree.

Yep. Maybe because we was on the player side rather than the assistant side?
