    I got vaccinated so I didn’t have to care who was vaccinated around me.

    To be fair it’s not just the board that has proven this. Society as whole has proven it can’t handle any discussion regarding Covid. People need to realize that they aren’t going to change any ones opinion (especially on a message board) so there is really no reason to argue about it.

  5. Have this really strange feeling SLU is going to finish top 2 in the league and be on solid ground for an at-large after a good non-conference. There’s so much uncertainty this year, but feel like this is going to be Travis’ best group yet, by a long shot.

  8. I don't intend to get into a pissing match with you, but FYI, the vaccine is not experimental. mRNA technology has been studied for decades, and it is safer than other types of vaccines.

    I've been impressed by the respectful tone of this exchange. It's a far cry from the no-holds barred street fight of months ago. Turns out you can teach an old MBM new tricks.

    "Caring for" means thinking for and deciding for? Personally I don't want anybody thinking and deciding for me. That's not even what made America great.

  13. My input RE: Billiken basketball is this - Regardless of how many of y'all come or don't come to Chaifetz, these boys are gonna be real good. The preseason rankings shock me and lead me to believe the only thing anyone focused on is the departure of Has and Goodwin. I truly believe we will be better than either of the last two seasons and I sure hope I'm not proven wrong.

  15. I'm disappointed to see people not caring for others throughout this thread. Maybe I am naïve for buying into the Jesuit missions of "Men and Women for Others" and "Magis." I'm not usually a "STICK TO SPORTS" guy but maybe we should stick to sports...

    My otherwise completely healthy son, who was 9 months old at the time, spent time getting oxygen in a locked down floor at Children's Hospital this August because he had covid. So I am pretty firmly in the camp that kids can get pretty sick from this. I've had a few people say "well he's fine now" but that doesn't really change how we felt for that week in August and how we don't want to relive that ever again. That all said, I realize my family was the strong exception to the rule. I don't expect SLU (or anywhere) to put precautions into place to cover 100% of the possible scenarios and eliminate all risk. We may not go to as many games as planned this year but that's an "us" decision. It sucks for us but after 20 months of this virus and almost 12 months of a vaccine, I am ready to be at a point where people make their own decisions and don't have decisions made for them.

    I don't think we should demand the same of a 5 or 7 year old as an adult, but that's just me. I also don't think vaccines are health safety theater. The health checks, spray-downs, and half-mask wearing are, but vaccines are clearly not.

  18. We are the one of the few countries in the world masking kids. We didn't mask them for flu season despite the flu being much more deadly to them. My kids are vaccinated and they are highschool and older. if I had a 5 year old i'm not sure i'd get in line to get him vaccinated because there is almost zero risk of him getting sick. \ Given that the vaccines are not great at stopping transmission I just don't know what my families vaccination status has to do with anyone but my family. Go to see the Bills and live your life......or not. It's got nothing to do with me and mine.....

  19. This entire conversation ignores the many fans who can't yet get vaccines (kids). I'd personally like to bring my three kids who are all currently ineligible for the vaccine without having to worry about them catching it. They'd probably be fine, but 10-day quarantines are no picnic. Good policy should reward good and responsible behavior. If you don't want to get the vaccine or a negative test, fine. Just know you could miss out on some fun stuff like a Billiken ass-kicking of Auburn. The entire idea that we shouldn't have rules/laws because people will just break them is also silly.

    I don't think SLU's policy for games has anything to with how effective the vaccine is for people. SLU just isn't bothering doing worthless health safety theater. No one is safer at a Blues game than they will be at a Billiken because the Blues have a policy that is impossible for them to accurately enforce. The most important thing to everyone's safety when it comes to COVID at Chaifetz and Enterprise Center is the type of air filtration in use and how fast the air inside the building is being replaced with outside air. Not one person complaining about SLU's policy has bothered to ask about this far more importation issue. If you are worried about a high risk person getting COVID at a game, this should be your number one concern.

    I can't believe that SLU will not require some vaccination, or negative w/in 72 hrs test result, to allow people to attend games. The Blues can do it with twice the attendance. If that winds up as the final policy I will not be attending any games. They can sell my seat to an anti-vaxer from north St Louis city or county or Franklin County. That policy has to change.

  26. Sure it will be the “the tourney to watch” but it won’t be as successful as the tourney is now. You will keep the college basketball fans but you will lose the groups who like sports but not necessary college basketball. office pools will still be available but they will have half the participants.

    Anybody in the St. Louis will want to check out Vashon this tear. They have 4 juniors (2023) who I believe have a chance or will be Division 1 players. 6'6 Kennard Davis, 6'7 Jordan Logan, 6'5 Cam Stovall, 6'4 Jayden Nicholson. Logan is somewhat of an unknown but will breakout in his first year of varsity basketball. He's a great rebounder, expanding skillset as a 4 man, and has good athletic traits. Younger brother of Davion Bradford.

    "Knife to a gunfight" should be quoted and attributed to the person who first used that phrase. We all know @billikenfan05 has a huge problem with plagiarizing courtside's 15 paragraph soccer recaps by using generic soccer terminology but we don't need everyone doing it.

    They have a choice when it comes to getting a test. They can spread the disease just like anyone else. I don't think they should have to provide a negative test. That said, if you believe adults should have to do it you should demand the same of kids at the game. This is the stuff I mean when I sat health safety theater. Many people just want things that make them feel safer even if they don't really make a difference. Plus, they only want those things up to the point those things start to inconvenience them. That is not good policy making.

    As a former government employee, I can tell you belief in the government doing the right and correct thing is sadly misplaced. To me, it is obvious they don't know. If they did, this would have been over a few months ago. They are doing their job for sure but the reality is they don't know and will continue searching. They won't admit they don't know, ergo conflicting statements ongoing from Fauci and Walensky. Case in point - breakthrough cases. At least the death rate has been slowed.

  41. If you feel safe, go to the game. If you don't feel safe, don't go. If your hopes are a zero COVID world, you're delusional. Vaccines work to prevent the vulnerable. They, however, do not stop transmission. You can still get the virus from a vaccinated person. I teach at ODU where the staff and students are required to be vaccinated. I still have students who need to quarantine. Covid will always be around. Trust the science and understand if you're vaccinated, you're good to go. Very few fully vaccinated individuals are dying. If you're vaccinated, don't worry about the unvaccinated. That's on them.

    Vaccines are safe & effective, but age is still a major factor in the seriousness of COVID infections. What @davidnark is saying about his dad not being comfortable attending games matches the data. Even vaccinated, he's at a higher risk of serious illness than an unvaccinated person who is less than 30. We've all been to games & know that a big portion of our fanbase falls into the high risk age group. I'm really surprised the University isn't doing more to protect those people.

  44. SLU 1 Richmond 0. 5 straight SLU wins, all by shutout. They will play Sunday at Rhode Island to secure the number 2 seed in the conference tourney. VCU won the regular season league title last night. SLU continued its recently successful lineup of moving Kelly to a wing, and, at times, they moved Friedrich to a central attacking midfield position from the wing. (Kelly and Sawyer wide, Friedrich in the middle and Gaebe up top) SLU had one of its best full 45 minutes, energy attacking, 2nd halves of the season. Emily Gaebe continued pressuring defenses and scoring goals in a variety of ways. Gaebe forced a turnover from a trio of the Richmond defense, beat her defender 1v1, left foot, far post: Later, multiple Billikens had a nice combination play, from the back to Gaebe, with a no look back heel pass as a target to Miller who hammers one just over the goal. Gaebe also will several good, low, driving passes with pace to set up the offense. SLU was dangerous all game with set pieces and corners. Here, a Friedrich service, nice driving header far post from Stram was saved off of the line to Houck, who’s rebound bangs off of the post. Lots of similar plays to this for SLU: Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Week Bri Halverson continues to provide the needed pace and flexibility on defense, while also providing box to box offensive support. 27 shots, 16 corners for SLU. Senior night for Brianna Hatfield. She almost had one cutting in from the right wing, just needed an extra dribble and a little more elevation for far post corner: Puricelli Houck, Stram, Heckel, Halverson Miller, Kohl Kelly, Preusser, Friedrich Gaebe

    I am vaccinated twice and the second shot made me sick for 8 days and my doctor does not want me to take the third yet. I was so sick from the second shot I am more afraid of the third than the virus and I should be able to attend games inside. I completely disagree that SLU is being reckless on their stance and I feel finally that somebody is being reasonable. For those that feel SLU is reckless do you speed in traffic, run red lights, driven intoxicated or have caused a car accident that hurt another person? I am scared of the reckless drivers I have to deal with every day not the unvaccinated. After the pandemic is over I still have to be concerned of reckless drivers.

    I don't particularly care but I am honestly surprised considering the vaccine requirement for students and faculty and that covid tanked our season last year (not saying the players are at risk from unvaccinated fans - just that it would be on people's minds). I actually expected the overkill approach of both proof of vaccination and masks

    Big East expansion coming?

    I was reading the Twitter comments and was happy to see that 95% of people were very against the idea. It blows my mind that these greedy a-holes think a mediocre Washington State team vs a mediocre Minnesota game is more appealing than watching a talented Drake team take down one of these P5 teams.
