    But you don't seem to believe the actual data. Why not?

    50% effectiveness if unboosted fits the numbers. Not sure what the boosted numbers for nba are.

    You repeatedly seem to view something as not 100% or 99% effective as having questionable value. They can still have BIG effects on the final tallies of infection, symptomatic infection, hospitalizations, and deaths.

    Probably quite low. Most players aren't going to want to risk getting sick (and I admit there's some irony here) in the middle of the season.

    Maybe part of the issue has to do with understanding that the situation is described by probabilities, not black and white, on or off, infected or not infected.

    Constantly bringing up the anomalies and ignoring the data and overall 'flattening the curve' objective is not a balanced or nuanced view.

    Jesus H Christ...we've batted this around before on the MLB players who tested positive after being vaxed...remember the Yankees issues?

    I think it has a lot to do with NBA/NHL/MLB/NFL players being randomly tested very very often. They pick up cases that we would normally not know about. Teletech cherry picking professional athletes to make a point that vaccines are not effective is being disingenuous and I don't understand why he's doing that. He claims to be open minded but can't absorb any information that is counter to his narrative about professional athletes. Doesn't seem very open minded.
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    There's no way to see either side without actually having data. How many pro athletes are "fully vaccinated" by one shot of J&J 7 or 8 months ago?

    both of these. Not to mention, pro athletes are in much closer proximity than most people. In locker rooms, buses, in huddles, etc. At my job, and virtually every white collar job and most blue collar ones, you don't hang out that close to other people, so close that they may literally be breathing on you. Add that in to the two things above, and voila, we get teletech with the usual BS of "how come vaccinated people are getting infected?"

    Professional athletes are not a normal sample by a lot of different measures.

    What I think about is that they're fucking it up for everyone else. If everyone would just get their shots, this thing would be close to endemic. I try to avoid inviting over selfish pricks for Christmas (kind of like Trump supporters) - not really people I wish to spend my time talking to - family or not.

    3 of 64 admitted covid patients in one of our hospitals in town are vaccinated. The other 61 are unvaccinated. So when the hospitals called for more people to get vaccinated yesterday because staff is burnt out and emergency room waits are long and surgeries are now being postponed...the antivax snowflake victims are like, what about those 3? Why aren't you mad at them?

    It is like arguing with someone about what color a clear blue sky is. No point.

    Shit could not be more obvious.

    It is a cult.

    3 of 64 have the vaccine. I always have to edit my posts 1000 times to get them to sorta make sense.

    someone who remains critical of the vaccines Because the vaccines do not provide lifetime, sterilizing immunity ( such that a vaccinated person cannot carry and potentially shed, and potentially 'transmit' the virus is -I believe- very genuine in his beliefs -

    ... considering that in October he believed his 70%-vaccinated community was immune to covid.

    being a constant critic of the vaccines is not a neutral position
    ( unrealistic demands is not a neutral position ).

    the vaccines aren't perfect - but they have provided hundreds of millions of people from a potentially deadly disease ;

    team sports is not representative of 'normal' life -
    the nfl is changing Policy to accelerate the return of players who have tested positive.

    I think we are crazy to be crowding into stadiums and (especially) arenas to watch (team sports. or other perfomances ) ...

    There may be better vaccine technology in the future ( - perhaps even the near future ) ;
    for now, I am grateful for what we have and I am grateful for the potection vaccination provides.

    the effects of omicron remain to be known --

    Please Be vaccinated - and boostered.

    When the cdc is putting up radio ads that the vaccine is 90% effective at preventing infection. Just heard another ad ten minutes ago. Then you see what is happening in the nba 95% vaxxed and nhl 99+% vaxxed where between 30 and 50% of the Vaccinated players depending on team are testing positive. Either the numbers are wrong or all the athletes are lying about their vax status. Which is more likely. Try to spin it however you like, The numbers dont add up.

    Rest your tender little brain, child. Adults are speaking.

    wait, 61 of 64 in the hospital are UNvaccinated, yet the hospital is urging people to get vaccinated to prevent staff burnout? And you think people are out of line to complain about the hospital's urgings? I dunno, it seems pretty hypocritical of a hospital to be saying "hey, people, get vaccinated so that we don't have to work so hard" while the vast majority of the hospital's employees aren't vaccinated.

    dog.

    the Nets are not 100% vaccinated
    ( his name is Kyrie Irving ) .

    omicron shows immunity evasive-ness. and is reported to be 70% - 80% more transmissible than other (variants ( / strains (I prefer) )

    an advertisement
    that claims 90% effectiveness may mean it is 90% effective at preventing hospitalization.
    That's what has been documented.

    Because an advertisement used the wrong word does not mean there is a great Conspiracy.

    goodbye again, teletech.
