    This is the biggest overreaction I’ve seen in my lifetime by a lot. The media perpetuating this shit is criminal. But the uncertainty creates the doubt and worry then the panic sets in. Gonna cost billions for no reason whatsoever.

    The workload this shit has created is legendary.

    Seriously, wash you hands. How hard was that?

    Power grab and nanny state time my friend. The politicizing is clear as all get out. They would sell this country out and have many times over the good of the people. This is a shit show the likes I’ve never seen.

    well, I don't know the politics of it, I turned my back on the news media when the mueller report came out, became clear to me, if you believe anything you hear from the left-media you're a big fool, if you believe anything you hear from the right-media you're a big fool,.. there's no truth to be found in the news anymore, both sides spin everything into propaganda and feed it to their ardent viewers who don't want to hear anything that doesn't support what they already believe.

    but this beer flu hysteria is fucking up my sports, the commissioners or whatever, don't give a shit about anything except protecting their jobs, and caving in canceling the games is their safest choice,.. pisses me off

    correction: trillions not billions. If trillions are bigger that is.

    The Giants made deals with three more Draft picks, Thursday, second-rounder Casey Schmitt, compensation pick Jimmy Glowenke and fifth-rounder Ryan Murphy

    reportedly, Glowenke's deal is for $600,000, below the $953,100 slot value for the No. 68 pick, Murphy agreed to $25,000. The slot value at No. 144 is $379,000.

    :cool: I like that the players accept less, healthy for the game I think

    When players accept less it means they aren't good enough to command more.
