I work in Pharma for one of the companies that is making a vaccine... I work directly with the distributors who this will be placed with... I can only speak for myself but I trust the products my company makes.  That is my personal opinion though I am not trying to sway anyone who is against taking a vaccine.  I myself have never taking a flu vaccine but this one I will highly consider.  Of course I would not be one of the 1st to take it though.

Thank you for your point-of-view Peezy. Also, I am glad that you and your family are staying safe, and I hope that you continue to do so.

If you don't somehow place a penalty on the team (players), not just the coaching staff, you send the message that you're willing to allow NW to have a competitive advantage over teams that followed the rules and did not have the benefit of training as a team during the pandemic shut down. If these players don't know right from wrong at 16-18 years of age, they will carry that same sense of entitlement into their college years and beyond; they're not innocent children.

Well said.

The school will probably be fined and might be penalized, loss of kick off classic or worst case possibly not eligible for the playoffs, but the kids will not be.  If the school gets the hammer the kids will just all leave to the next school.

Col. Jessup may have ordered the Code Red but, at the end of the day, Private Downey and Lance Corp. Dawson still received dishonorable discharges.   In other words, those who break the rules, even at the direction of their superior/coach, sometimes have to pay to price, as well. 

In addition to whatever punishment the coach(es) receive, I'd be inclined to suspend the players involved in the 'illegal practices'  a game or two.  However, I would allow the school to spread out the suspensions however they wanted over the course of the season so that NW could still field a (competitive?) team for each game of the season.  And I'd make sure the suspensions follow the players if they transfer to another school.   In fact, I think I might even double the suspension if a kid transfers, in hopes of adding a little disincentive to the decision-making process. 

Just my two cents.

If that's the case, any football player transferring from NW should face at least a few games suspension at their new school. For them to condone cheating, the FHSAA would be sending a mixed message if they penalize a school and then allow those players to go about their merry way moving on to another school and never missing a game. When it comes to illegal transfers, both the school and player(s) are penalized by the FHSAA; this shouldn't be different.

Yea keep up with some updates.  I personally have never taken any flu vaccine (rarely ever get sick),  but I'd love to hear from someone on the inside regarding this.

Me neither never took the Flu Vaccine... I will however take this one (only the version that my company produces though as I trust us).

Understand, disagree with the last part.  They aren't the ones organizing and holding the practices.  If the coach don't say show up then no one shows.  They are following (blindly) an authority figure.  But I agree with all else.

I was just on a clinical trials status update call this morning.  One thing they noted that I have not heard is for these trials they are actively seeking a diverse patient base for testing purposes... Now I am not signing up to be the guinea pig but its good to know they want to know if the vaccines etc affect people differently based on genetic makeup.

If I sign up and get seriously ill or die, will JNJ compensate my family?

You're going to have to sign a release of liability just like they do with the flu shot each year.

That and the fact I have not had the flu in over 30 years and the fact the flu vaccine does not provide much immunity, all of these have led me to never take a flu shot.

I had a bad case of the flu about 40 years ago; every muscle and bone in my body ached for two weeks. Since that experience, I have made sure that I get my flu shot every Fall. When they get a vaccine for this virus, I will get the shot(s). It's going to be a problem if this vaccine receives the same resistance from people as we see for flu shots each year. They're preaching that the only way to stop the virus is a vaccine, but we have a society that is allowed to choose if they want to be vaccinated.

Part of the reason the flu vaccine has so much resistance, is that at best, it provides less than 50% protection. That's the reason I have never taken it. That and the fact I think I am probably immune to most strains of the flu since both the wife and one of my children have brought it home over the 30+ year period and I have not caught it from them.

I can't say... I am sure everyone who signs up signs some waiver/NDA spelling out what happens if it goes bad... knowing that part is beyond my reach.  I will say that based on what I know of the company I believe they would or they would not be living up to their CREDO.  Only been here 2 years but in my experience they live up to the CREDO difficult situations.

Yeah, definitely something, although I think there maybe some sort of compensation they would give and also the family would not be able to sue.

You will almost certainly have to sign a form indemnifying them against any liability that may arise from you receiving the shot. That means no compensation and you give up your right and the right of anyone else to sue them.

Kind of like the release that the Trump campaign is making the folks in Tulsa sign before they can attend the rally on Saturday.  :D

Exactly; it's a "hold harmless" clause.

    • It's beginning to look like there may not be state finals in football this year. Dade, Broward, and Palm counties have been hit harder by the virus than other counties throughout the state. They may delay the start of their season and restrict travel out of their immediate area. The players do't need state playoffs. The schools can play local schedules and have county or regional championships if necessary. The important thing is that if at all possible, these kids get to play. Seniors lost their Spring practice, their Spring games, college Summer camps and visits, all very important events in the college recruiting process. For many of these kids, football was their only way to afford a college education. We shouldn't allow politics or labor unions to decide if these kids get a college education.
    • The CFYFL is just like Pop Warner except they don't have weight restrictions. As they state, "they let the big boys play". They play 11 on 11. Both my grandsons played for the Oviedo Knights for several years, both in the Spring and in the Fall. They have teams throughout Central Florida and just like Pop Warner, they have always played on high school fields or city stadiums. They may have had to use other fields this past Spring season if local high schools closed their fields, but they played.. 
    • Namesakes for their county's in SW FL are always competitive. After that, in Lee County it varies from year to year based on transfers. What the athletes feel (or are presented) to be the team with the best shot at a deep run. Dunbar is always loaded and has been competitive, North has made a few runs. In Charlotte County, The Tarpons are in a tough district- last year the district produced four playoff teams and the Tarpons just made it in the 4th spot. They got on a hot streak to get a rematch with District Champ, Palmetto in the Regional Final, but got thumped. The other two teams that made it, Port Charlotte and Bradon River will be competitive.   Charlotte has a new HC, new DC, new OC, new QB Coach. Think they will likely update their offense, so this will be a  year for the team to gain experience as players and coaches. I have confidence in the system, and the coaches who stayed and took over the key vacancies, all home grown Tarps, my sons played with two of them. We have a very good QB returning and some skills, need some O-line help. But my expectations are realistic.
    • Speaking of Young some video below. Not sure of the competition but he has a lot of speed for sure:
