Very low.

 

Just waiting for DJ Mortimer to confirm the tests were accurate.

 

Your Owlstalk history is a mere 54 posts and if you keep this up, most of them will be about me. In the long run it's probably advantageous to concentrate on issues rather than obsessive tantrums about people who happen not to agree with you.

 

This pandemic is a complex issue of science, sociology, public health, psychology, finance and many other aspects. Many posters are trying to come to informed opinions based on a wide range of sources and logical positions. On balance, these people are more likely to arrive at a considered viewpoint than those who can contribute little more than shouting the first thing that comes to mind and then shrieking at others who think it might contain flawed reasoning.

Obsessive tantrum about people who happen not to agree with me?

 

How ironic then that is was you, who accused me of screaming like a little girl because I had the gaul to question one of your many questionable posts.

 

You should be in politics.

I made a detailed post about the science of asthma in football and how that might be relevant with regards the outbreak of a respiratory disease, even going so far as to quote a specialist in the field. Forgive me, but I'm struggling to see what was "questionable" about that or why a reply which did little more than call it "patronising" was in any way addressing the issues.

Clearly the "STAY AT HOME" mandate is more a suggestion than actual directive for many people...

Now they can see that they were being taken for mugs. The lockdown was more about politics than science.

According to a couple of sources, around 300 people are required to stage a single top flight game. 

 

 

what do they all do ?.....you need 36 players 2 managers ,2 pyhsio's , 4 officials and someone to cut the grass and mark the lines to get a game on …….that's all you need in reality  if they want to finish the season...……

There seems to be a lot of differing opinions on this varying from 150 to 350.

Having read the article a great many of those seem superfluous....I can understand that with tv, var, fitness,performance analyists, press ..and the like the numbers would be high but but to get the season finished as safely as possible which is supposedly the purpose of seeing this thru then bin all them and just play the match with the minimum needed.....I watch NPL games and they seem to get a match on with the minimum  of personnel. .....obviously they wont do that as they want the tv money but then they are putting finance above safety so the codswallop of seeing this to the end for the integrity  of the game is load of crap.
