The "health and safety is paramount" crowd seems to only talk about CV19. If H&S is so important, then why ever play football? It is an inherently dangerous sport. Helmet tech and rule changes help, but it is still fundamentally a collision sport and if it wasn't no one would watch. Watch any flag football on TV lately??
So, would any player or parent seriously be more concerned about a CV19 (extremely low CDR) infection vs a CTE related impact???
