: : College basketball should be put on hold until we know more. This could be a disaster in the making, and it's not worth it. These kids aren't pros. We should deal with Covid, then the kids can hit the courts again.
: To the untrained eye, Dave, it almost looks like you are telling people what they should do even though you insist that's not what you are doing. It's very difficult to see the difference. For example, if I was to say "we should all keep our mouths shut until we know for sure that there is even a real threat to young healthy athletes" then you might think that I was telling you that you shouldn't have an opinion, when in fact that's not what I'm saying at all. It certainly can be confusing!
I certainly don't mean to confuse anyone and apologize if I have. You're right about this - I AM trying to convince people to behave a certain way (cautiously). I state my position, and try to use relevant facts to convince people with differing opinions to change their minds. Isn't that how a debate usually goes?
I wouldn't be so aggressive about this Covid situation if not for one fact - when people take unnecessary risks they put the entire community at risk. And I don't want anyone putting my family and friends at risk.
