Or just, ya know, don't do sports cause they're not actually important.

Or just, ya know, don't comment in threads you have no interest in and leave those who do to talk among themselves.

I mean you talk all this **** about people who aren't responsible about the epidemic but you still support sports happening at all just cause you like to watch it?

Actually, no. TBH I would prefer there was no sport while this is going on. My idea - which I suggested to nobody, and who would I - was to have the teams compete on a networked/online FIFA-style thing, so they could still play out the games but separately, at home. I'm sure they could have worked some way to get revenue - ads in between or something, or sponsorship - and everyone would a) get their footy and b) still be safe. It wouldn't be perfect by any means but it would have been safer.

I fully support the thinking that if you're going to insist on playing sports in a pandemic then you have to be ****-hot on the regs and make sure EVERYONE, from the chairmen on down, follow the safety rules, otherwise can it until everyone can be less sure of dying for a ****ing game which is all it is in the end. We'll survive, but like, no, they may literally not.

Wait so like all the players play as themselves in a soccer video game?

Significant outbreak of covid at the Villa. First team and staff need to isolate and our game with Liverpool tomorrow will be played by our u23s to make sure it goes ahead.

Very excited to see 17 year old Louie Barry should he play, looks like he will. Little Louie is the next wonderkid. Local lad and Villa through and through.

Great goal scored by Louie. Against Liverpool! He'll remember that forever.

Pretty wild though the way clubs are just shrugging and saying "this and that player is out because of Covid." Don't they realise how dangerous/deadly this virus is? It's not like the player(s) has/have a cold or an achilles or a hamstring: theoretically they could die. Don't they care? But they're treating it as if it's nothing. Managers still not masking up, and only now are they talking about social distancing on the field, instead of, you know, a load of maskless people piling on top of each other! And then Pep says "well I don't know if you can take the emotional aspect out of it...!" YOU STUPID ****ER! YOUR PLAYERS COULD DIE AND YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT THEM EXPRESSING THEMSELVES? We all learned to change our behaviour, but your incredibly overpaid football superstars can't? Jesus storming the Capitol and getting shot cos he's black!

It's almost like capitalism is inherently imorral.
