  • UIL lifts ban on Friday night broadcasts

    Looks like the steps are in place to watch the football teams in case sporting events aren’t feasible with crowds. By all indications they may need to be used widely. Not enough people taking precautions is resulting in a spike in cases. Glad there is some “insurance” so far to watch the Friday night lights in some capacity. Provided the games don’t get cancelled altogether.

      I bet this will only be for the upcoming (hopefully) season. I would think that both schools involved will have to agree to any broadcast and I guess come up with some revenue sharing (if any) agreement. Obviously most games will not be broadcast on regular TV, but will involve live streaming over the net. Press boxes could get a bit crowded. Still, it's great news for fans.

        Correct, one season only. Out here in Lakeway, we’ll get 16 weeks of Westlake football on TV. During their bye week, we’ll get Shaps highlights.

          You can now go to your MD and get tested. The US has more cases because we test more. Kids are asymptomatic and do not pass the virus usually. Stop spreading fear. You are why we are wearing USELESS masks, the fear of litigation, not health or science.

            Masks aren't useless, they mitigate the transfer of any sickness, they're not 100% safe proof. Children aren't universally asymptomatic.

                Not long ago the "experts" were downplaying the need for masks, also, and some still are. The "experts" have taken every stance possible. Don't wear a mask, wear a mask. Stay inside, go outside to riot, er... protest. Asymptomatic folks can spread, asymptomatic folks can't spread.

                They don't seem to really know what they're doing if you take their statements at face value.

                How in the world could anyone blame Average Joe for being confused when top health scientists who studied at the best medical schools in the world can't make up their minds either?

                  Right, that’s why we are starting to see students testing positive for coronavirus as well. Because they are asymptomatic and don’t spread the disease? Wrong. It’s not about spreading fear, it’s about limiting the spread of the virus. Masks aren’t fool proof but if we all wear them now, then we won’t have this novel coronavirus to worry about in a year.

                    Titus, talk to your Chinese friends and ask them about the benefit a mask helps in the prevention of spreading anything that is airborne from the mouth of an infected person. Chinese typically wear a mask in the midst of densely populated areas on the streets to significantly reduce the infection rate of those around them. A mask doesn't keep you from being exposed, a mask on others keeps you from being exposed. As you know, it doesn't take much for viruses to spread in densely populated areas without some sort of prevention.

                      Except there is value - organic value - in the crap from cows.

                        I continue to ask the question - if it's too unsafe to sit in the stands, how is it going to be safe on the field? What am I missing here?

                          Those that don’t feel comfortable playing should not. Those that aren’t comfortable watching in person should not. I’m guessing both players and fans will weigh the pros and cons and make decisions for themselves. I think there will be fans allowed...probably at reduced capacity.

                            I wonder how officials would address reduced capacity with season ticket holders. Obviously a district can’t just decide who goes and who doesn’t. Maybe a ticket lottery. So many potential possibilities.

                              Titus is not average Joe.

                              Fauci admitted that their initial stance on masks was so they would have enough for Healthcare workers. Not good, but understandable. Being a part of this administration you have to expect some falsehoods and sharpies work.

                              As time proceeds, we learn more things and statements change. Data today and statements today are more valid than the ones 4 months ago for obvious reasons. You are a smart guy, you understand this. Think AIDS.
