    Our Govrerner, bless his heart. To my knowledge still hasn't made a decision on when and how school will reopen. Yea there is a virus and yea people are catching it, but no the overall death rate is much lower than before. From what I've seen on T V and articles I find online, it seems that the ordinary voters like myself and I assume most of you are caught up in the largest game of politics played in my lifetime.

    Liberal agenda
    Stay home don't go anywhere.
    All retail except necessities should be closed.
    The government will figure it out, trust then
    (Keep the economy sour, use this to defeat the conservatives in November

    Conservative agenda
    Continue your life, be careful
    Try to maintain 6 feet,like they àsk Place elderly in isolation a couple weeks, till you know they are clear.
    Don't wait for the government to take care of anyone.
    ( Open the economy back up, get back to normal life as safely and quickly as possible. Watch the growth come flooding back..

    Just shooting this out there, if school is not in session, could you potentially be witnessing a teenage Pop Warner league in the making?

    I think it would be cool for Onslow County as a whole to let kids choose there team, and play two Friday night games at two different location every Friday.

    Just having fun and shooting from the hip, but that could be fun.

    if a county is not going to allow HS football, they will prohibit rec leagues from playing in the county as well.

    You need to keep an eye on the colleges. If they have issues, there will be no HS football.

    Especially since most youth leagues play on HS fields, I think.

    This thing won't be any better a month from now and will probably be worse. The pros may figure something out but no football for other levels im my opinion. I'm wrong on most things way more than I'm right so let's hope this to be true on this issue .

    I think the Governor is doing the best job possible with the information he has. Luckily, NC has not seen the massive rise in cases that Texas and Florida are experiencing. I thank Governor Cooper for that. We are lucky to have a leader that leads instead of one who is only worried about elections.

    However, I think things will get worse over time as that’s how it’s trending. It’s the nature of this thing until a vaccine is found. I hope for Fall sports but I don’t see how that will happen given the current state of the outbreak. Time will tell.

    I will be glad when this pandemic is behind us and we can get back to normal.

    based on Que Tucker's press conference today, no one knows anything.

    she did however basically shut down the idea there is a spring football backup plan as of right now.

    Of course she did.. she doesn't wanna do anything too helpful for anyone. That's been her mantra since day 1; same status quo and passing the buck constantly if things get tough. She just wants to grandstand and lecture any chance she gets; in that way she's as useless as Cooper is. She's gonna wait this out and if things go sour she won't hesitate to cancel everything.

    The moment she quits the moment the NCHSAA will get better.

    Imagine what it will be if we are still dealing with this virus in another year from now. Will things continue at that point with no sports. I personally believe they will eventually come up with a vaccine and the virus will eventually go away. Just my opinion.

    That's the truth! For her to say she doesn't see an advantage for those teams conditioning together vs. those who cannot is a truly remarkable statement. How can a "former Coach" not see that?

    I hate it for high school seniors and what it will do to the athletic budgets, if football is cancelled this year.

    High School sports are all I have left. They are getting real close to destroying that. It seems a lot of districts are allowing kids to transfer at no cost to the student athletic as far as sitting out a season. We will end up with eight or ten super programs and everybody else.
    As far as professional sports...
    Screw millionaire players complaining and whinging about this that and the other. Leagues giving into the latest liberal narrative, in order to do what? I guess they are trying to appease advertisers. "An appraiser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last." Winston Churchhill

    Now they say they are going to start paying college athletics. There is way, way, way to much money in sports now in my opinion.

    Oh well, I'm old, maybe I'll die soon and you guys won't have to hear (read) me b1+¢h.

    I don't have much hope for a season, but football is definitely a sport that someone can go from a unknown to top player in just a year, so seniors prolly need to start getting individual workout videos showing strenght, agility, and speed done soon. Once FDA approved a vaccine we should be right back to business as usual.

    I agree with above post, look at college and it will tell the tell of high school.

    Covid 19 suxx!

    What happens with the anti vaccine people who choose not to get a vaccine? Not everybody believes in vaccines. Such as not everybody gets the flu shot. Are those people not allowed back into society? I ask because everyone is looking as a vaccine as the answer. Also, how do we start school or football when they won't even open gyms and bars up? IDK

    What happens to them? They get Covid and nature sorts itself out. Same with polio, measles, small pox etc... That’s why we’re beginning to see outbreaks of those diseases again. People think they’re experts on issues after an hour of intense Google searches and disregard what their doctors tell them.

    I also think it’s possible we are relying to much on the idea that a vaccine can be created in such a short amount of time. People thought an HIV vaccine was possible back in the 80’s but look what happened with that. Society definitely needs a plan B in this situation.

    Que Tucker said a couple of months ago that if schools aren't opened full time there will be no sports. So if it's part-time, virtual, or rotating days there will probably be no sports which sucks but it is what it is.

    You can also cram 1000s of people at one time into stores every day, but more than 10 people outside is a major problem. And if you are the elected governor of NC, you can also hang out with 10000 people with no mask on, and then saddle up your high horse and mandate masks for everyone.

    I don’t see what the big deal is about mask, if I told you that a pill could reduce the spread of Covid by 85% people would be all over it. Not wearing a mask is just a selfish act at this point. Hey, but you do you, you know best!!

    I pray the best for you, your family, and the people who have to physically interact with you.

    That’s one step from not playing at all. If this as far as it goes, it’s a good bet HS will start late, if at all.

    No optimism from me anymore. I am still optimistic about a vaccine by the end of the year.

    If vaccine by end of year then possibly we play 7 on 7. I am really concerned for guys depending on this year to get a college scholarship. Some guys are just not combine guys, but still are a good fit for a Elon, where they get a education.

    Hoping for the best, but since I have no kids there is no way I will attend a game this year. If you test positive at my job now your out of work for at least 14 days.

    Come to a point that I wouldn't mind if the entire world said, "let's shut it down until new year". Economy is going to be bad regardless, we all know that! Maybe it is time for everyone to reconsider how money (paper) is viewed. Every human being deserves a computer or some access to internet. Why not start with the youth and start perfecting online education.

    IMHO, no way we have sports this fall. I am not sure if we ever see what was normal again. As I have read this post, everyone is concerned with the fringe seniors, guys who could play in college, but are not D1 guys. Folks idk if college football will be an option for them. All of the FCS programs rely on the FBS for 1 or 2 big payouts a year to run their programs. There is very little or no TV money. and the money only shrinks the lower the program. CIAA cancelled football season today, I wonder how many of those schools just drop football? For the small FCS, D2, & D3's how many of the programs will even still be here in a year? A lot of kids sports are their only way to a college education, and I believe those opportunity are about to become even fewer.

    Superstar57, I liked your last post right up to the LAST paragraph. I'm not sure what you are smoking but you should consider finding something not quite so strong.

    Shutting down the country for nearly six months? You got to be kidding. As far as paper money goes, I would bet 65 - 70% of all legal transactions are done with plastic and phone apps.

    My favorite part of your post is the line about every human being DESERVES a computer and internet. Wow. I guess the best thing to do is just make it illegal to be poor. Free computers, free phone, free internet, free housing, free food. Where the crap is it going to end? I'll answer my own question. It will end in Socialism. If you can show me one country on the face of the earth where Socialism has worked out for the people, I'll go along with you.

    I am not saying it is possible (I smoke on "good" in case your wondering. Lol).

    Money as it pertains to the world economy is the only reason everything is not shut down!

    So you don't like that everyone deserves a technology that is essential? Not like I said get everyone a 10 room house.

    I love the dream of being whatever you want, and if you work hard you can get what you want. Example: my parents are 71 and 75, and have followed every social distance recommendation. If I didn't have internet, I would not be able to Zoom and see them.

    You do know that people are still dying from other things besides this virus, and without internet you can't even see them because you can't go to the hospital. Having internet communication is a necessity.

    I suggest you do a little more research into the Venezuela situation and get back to me. I’m not advocating for our country to adopt a socialistic economy, but if you believe Venezuela is in their current situation based solely on the failure of socialism, you have a lot of work to do.

    I’m not going to get into an economic debate on here, but the introduction of programs in this country that benefit everyone would do us some good and would be fiscally possible. Starting with reducing the Defense Budget.

    704, I'm not sure what you are referring to as far as Venezuela is concerned. I will do some research and try to figure out what your talking about. When it was a capitalists country, it was one of the most successful country in South America. Now, inflation is insane, people are starving, and I assume there is as much oil there as before. I'm sure you can't blame their collapse on capitalism. The USA, is moving way to fast in that direction for my liking. The farther a country gets from rule of the people by the people and for the people, the more likely that county is to be ruled by dictators.

    As I've been accused of on on here before, and yes I resemble the remark. I'm just an old Christian, fiscal, political conservative. People who see the world as I do are dying out. When were gone, y'all will be the old farts and the younger generation will come after your way of life. If the Russians or the Chinese don't get you first.

    Venezuela is what happens when a country allows themselves to be ruled by a corrupt authoritarian who is only interested in stuffing their own pockets.

    It also doesn’t help that their economy is a one trick pony with oil being the end all be all. The price of oil dropped significantly and that’s why their screwed. Same thing happened to Russia, hopefully, the Russian people will rise up and take out their dictator as well.

    It’s impossible to compare the situation in the Venezuela to that of the USA.

    At 3 PM today the Governor of NC is supposed to announce the parameters of public schools opening in our state.

    My guess is he will say, you can do totally, distant learning. ( Stay at home and learn on a computer.) Or have the kids split time in class rooms. Not allowing more than 15 kids in a room at a time. Or a combination of the two, if momma is skeerd to let Jr come to school. Either way, if they are not willing to allow kids to be within 6 - 8 feet of each other, how are they going to play sports. Heaven forbid somebody might touch or breath on somebody else.

    It sure will be interesting to see how quickly things change after November 3rd. I'm not sure it will matter who wins the election for this particular issue. Big changes will be on the way.
