But the discussion was about serious complications, not death. I haven’t seen any data quantifying the rate of serious complications.Really? I kind of thought the burden of proof would be on the people claiming there is grave risk in playing NFL football.
Take a look at the CDC's numbers - people in the NFL player age range are as likely to die (probably moreso) from flu in any normal year than they are from Covid in 2020.
Based on what has been reported to date, the NFL’s COVID issues seem to be a consequence of lax compliance with standard workplace protocols, not anything inherent in the sport. Playing NFL football is bad for your health in all sorts of ways; it shouldn’t be necessary to add COVID exposure to those risks.
