Tbh mate, I think it’s very naive to think that football is not contributing to spreading the virus!! The problem is we don’t know if it is or isn’t.! Until we are completely sure that it isn’t, then it should be stopped. I love the football and I’m lost without it on a Saturday and during the week, and I really do want it to continue, but I feel it’s too risky at this point and I didn’t think it should of restarted when it did!!
from a selfish point of view I’m happy it’s on and I’m still taking part in football even though I know it’s not helping get rid of this coronavirus. That’s the problem and I’m part of the problem, so are a lot of other coaches, players etc who will know that by turning up in large groups, having contact with each other potentially spreading a virus that they don’t know they have, isn’t helping the pandemic but will continue to do so as it’s allowed!!
it’s the kids I feel sorry for, they can’t play football, they are the future of the game, some of the boys will have missed out on there first year at 7s , 11s , last season before they go to adult football, yet this level is allowed to play. Madness!
If by stopping football at our level for a few months meant the kids got back playing sooner I’m all up for that. If by stopping for a few months helped get rid of this fucking virus quicker I’m all up for that too.
Just my opinion, doesn’t make it right or wrong, we’re never going to all agree on everything.
