Cole Beasley is going off on the NFL's COVID protocols.

I think they are:

Apparently nobody should get a vaccine because it was maybe "God's will" that hundreds of thousands of Americans have died?

 

P.S. The NFL's message seems clear: get f***ing vaccinated.

We ought to know, by now, that pandemics are pretty low on god's priority list.

I had to look up who that clown Cole Beasley was.

Right up there with it being god's will that your neighbor's baby got leukemia and died because he needed another angel in heaven.

I think that might be an underestimation....

I am just glad the misinformation in the internet did not exist to stop people getting the Small Pox vaccine decades ago.   High vaccination rates basically made Small Pox extinct.

Several strains of the flu are extinct now.

Yes that is interesting and good, but it looks like there's another variant of the Coronavirus threatening the population.

The non-vaccinated population.

And a quote from that article:

Quote

The variant, first identified in India, is the most contagious yet and, among those not yet vaccinated, may trigger serious illness in more people than other variants do, say scientists tracking the spread of infection.

The summary is that Delta could lead to a significant surge in cases, especially in communities with relatively low rates of vaccination. All of the vaccines provide pretty good (not perfect) protection against all the variants, including Delta.

The mental math for people just changed. Hopefully more people get the vaccine.

Please don't become like our crazy uncle in Florida. Please read beyond the headline.

I hope you're right, but I'm not that optimistic.  Resistance to being vaccinated has so far been based in everything except real data, so I'll be (pleasantly) surprised if new data changes the minds of many.

    • The guy pretty much knows what he's doing.  But as you said, possibly not for us mere mortals.  Though I do use this swing sometimes in the wind.  And I'm as mortal as anyone...
    • From what I've heard him say in interviews, it comes from the fact that he drills loads of punch shots, and it just kind of stuck in the full swing... It does work for him and I assume his coaching staff are cool with it, but I'm fully invested in the idea that what works for pros might not be a good idea for the rest of us mortals. I've seen some coaches say that working on post-impact positions (such as "straighten your arms in the follow-through") can lead to tension, which can be harmful. I certainly notice some tension when doing this finish in a full swing (it feels as if I need to decelerate the club more consciously),  but at first glance it hasn't had any negative effect on my shots, but rather the opposite...
    • Looks good to me too. It obviously works well for him. I suppose it keeps the ball under the wind better for those European courses?  I happen to like his putting grip as well….I’ve adapted it lately
    • I really like Tommy Fleetwood's three-quarter finish, both aesthetically and in terms of the feeling of control it provides. I haven't found any good technical discussions on potential trade-offs and risks. My current instructor is not against it, but he hasn't elaborated on the topic.  I plan to do a little statistical experiment where I try a three-quarter vs. a full finish at the range. In the meantime, what are your thoughts?
    • It's not the handicaps we're concerned about....we know that's going to be accurate. It's the weekly and overall year-end competition we're concerned about. We're thinking average scores will be artificially lower than they actually should be. Players just turn in their gross scores and the software does all the calculating after someone (meaning me) plugs in everyone's gross scores hole by hole. There's no way 99% of these guys would be able to figure out which holes they get strokes on and how many. Since I'm considered the numbers guru, I'm the one elected to figure this stuff out and will ultimately be the one who makes the decision (and get the bitching afterwards). I'm leaning towards agreeing with @iacas though.
