    Curious question is will seniors at the IVIES hang around considering that a lot of them have REAL JOBS lined up in law, medicine and business. A limited few may have possible NFL plans but the vast majority have been studying hard to set themselves up for life. Maybe if they play in the spring, but waiting to fall '21 is probably not in the cards.

    I heard on the radio today that so far the NFL hasn't decided to move the draft from April if football is played in the spring. If NFL plays as scheduled, but NCAA moves to spring I see that as a win win for fans for our football fix especially as experts say a vaccine should be ready around the first of the year.

The NFL has canceled 2 preseason games to shorten the season. They also told the players to not practice among themselves. Now the distractors of team nicknames like Clan or Redskins. Well, The powers to be have just about 2 weeks to decide. All anyone now is doing is guessing on what will happen. Again, my opening questions need to be answered that started this thread.
    The SIAC hasn't canceled (yet). Someone reported that prematurely, and the SIAC issued a statement that it hadn't decided yet. https://thesiac.com/news/2020/7/2/ge...20-sports.aspx

    I talked with someone inside Valdosta Stare football. They are now having volunteer workouts. Source said most of the team showed up, even walk-ons.
    Coach Goff will always be prepared.. but I highly doubt there will be collegiate football this year.

    Not a fan. I just believe that injuries would go way up the following September. This isn't darts. It's a physical sport after all.
    Think of it as an extended spring practice.

    Yep there are false positives and false negatives. However, one only has to look at hospitals in Houston filling up with young people between 30 and 50. Those are real cases. If knuckleheads continue not to wear masks, it could result in a huge increase in health insurance rates for everyone. I believe in freedom and responsibility. If u don't wear a mask you are contributory negligent and insurance co pay should go up accordingly. Nothing like a $50k hospital bill to cause an attitude adjustment. One guy spent 30 days in ICU and Bill was 1.1M.
    We cannot afford to shutdown again.
    Each taxpayer's share of national debt plus unfunded liabilities ( social security Medicare, medicaid) is $787,000. Add in unfunded state pensions ( in ohio that is another $60,000).
    That does not include private consumer debt. Folks, we are broke.

    COVID costs will only make it worse unless we protect ourselves.

    ​​​​​​It is long shot that we will have a complete season in any sport, with or without spectators.
    Great post! But damn that’s depressing as hell. 787K per taxpayer. I knew it was bad, but damn.

    I just want to clarify this: The national debt is not the same as a mortgage or a business loan. It is better understood as the total number of dollars currently in circulation, and "your family's share" is what you'd have if those dollars were evenly distributed. The US can get more money at any time, more or less for free, thanks to the dollar's position as the world's reserve currency. To pay off the debt in it's entirety, the treasury would have to stop printing new money and take every dollar out of circulation, which would be a much larger disaster than the big number getting a little bigger.
    Don't want to hijack this thread, but I thought others might be interested in accessing resources with alternative views on the topic, given that Medicare runs out of $ in 2026 and Social Security Trust Fund is zero in 2035 (before COVID).

    You raise very interesting and thought-provoking points. Unlike a family mortgage, the US can print more money at any time, as it is fiat money (it is worth a dollar because I say, and you believe that it is worth a dollar, as it is not backed by gold, silver, etc). We go to jail for printing our own money LOL.

    As the world's reserve currency, it gives us a tremendous advantage, as long as investors have confidence in the US dollar and do not demand higher interest rates. Even at today's record low rates, the interest on the debt is 9% of the federal budget. BTW, The world's reserve currency status allows us to enforce foreign policy through economic sanctions, rather than war. However, Other countries are pushing to replace the dollar as the reserve currency, with China leading the charge.

    Japan, the world's greatest debtor nation as a % of GDP, recently had their bonds downgraded, despite promising that they are on target to balance their budget by 2026. The USA is approaching the debt to GDP ratio of Greece when it defaulted.

    I had to do some research on your points. Some organizations with a critical interest in understanding debt and its effects are the Council on Foreign Relations and many non-partisan economic think tanks. They have expressed significant concern about the dangers of the national debt.

    There should be a FB and BB season but probably won’t be due to all the new cases. Sadly many of the ‘positive’ results are ‘false positives’ that picked up a different coronavirus or even antibodies. Also many of the deaths attributed to the chi com virus were wrongly counted. Add these to the legitimate chi com virus cases and legitimate chi com virus deaths and the mass hysteria will likely end FB this year. Since BB starts after the elections there may be a chance it will go on.

    Can you provide some resources to support what you're saying? I'm not familiar with a lot of what you said and I follow this pretty closely being a healthcare professional who is a supplier with an essential government contractor.
