We should be afraid of morons making these decisions.

Worst part is, the other Dodgers have been and will be partying all night/week probably...and who knows how many of his teammates he already infected, and who knows how many more people will be infected from the partying.  Highly doubt they respect the quarantine just after winning the World Series :picard:

Kissing his wife, handling the trophy, no gloves, no mask. Horrible.

 

And she allowed herself to be kissed so she cares as little as he does.

I'd really like to know how many Dodgers and people connected with the team come down with Covid in the next couple of weeks. 

This could be a great teaching moment for American Covidiots.

I was watching the game and trying to figure out what happened. All of a sudden, there's a replacement at third for the end of the game....

 

I thought he had been injured and I somehow missed it.

Fake news.

 

Is the guy even sick or showing any signs of illness?  No, it was just a "test", which means absolutely nothing.  The PCR test is notoriously unreliable, yielding 89-94% false positives because it wasn't even designed for that purpose and thereby has zero correlation to whether someone is infected or contagious, let alone symptomatic.

 

This ignorance, insanity, and fear-porn simply has to stop.

I normally enjoy your posts, but you clearly missed this part of the article (or didn't read it):

 



Shortly after sending the above tweet, Turner was seen on the field holding the World Series trophy and celebrating with his teammates. Turner was asked not to return to the field, but he and the Dodgers insisted upon it, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Rosenthal also reported that Turner's case is not a false positive.

 

Is it fake news then? Or is it news that is inconvenient to a narrative that you want to push?

Source?

 

The Lancet (which is a peer-reviewed medical journal) seems to suggest otherwise.

So, a few Dodgers or their family get sick, maybe a couple of people die; or get really ill and end up with screwed health.

I for one will not need to hear an apology or mea culpa from Turner talking about how he didn't know or believe in the virus.

 

Guy is an idiot, flat out, apology not accepted.

Moron.

It's kind of troubling when average joes and janes 'make up' the scientific conclusions. I'm disappointed in @Gaudette Celly

Yeah... just have to see what the fall out is.

"Not a false positive" -- according to some reporter from Fox Sports?  Surely a medical professional to make such a claim.  So the team let a verifiably visibly ill player around the team and into the game?
