I think I'm gonna wait for a few more people to join here for this one.
Cheers to potentially the last stream we ever have together.
All right, Anybody else gonna join here? Okay, let's get started.
Those of you that do not know me my name is Jesse Clark.
Live around the Dayton, Ohio area.
Right and stream.
On behalf of the unwrap sports network.
Make sure you guys were going and checking out content.
They're doing great stuff also.
How you doing? Thanks for joining.
Wanted Thio represent the old Buckeyes here? I don't really no a specific outline of how I want to go about this.
So you're going to get the Raul version of just initial thoughts? I will preface this debate by saying I am in no way shape or form a doctor Or do I know what the heck I'm talking about? Or am I going thio act like an expert? This is strictly for debate sake and conversational piece.
So I hope you guys will join in and the chat.
Give me your thoughts.
I'll kind of lay out my thoughts, and then we can kind of go from there and like I said.
This is going to be a very role, unplanned type of discussion.
And to be honest with you, I fully expect getting done with this stream and looking back on this in witching that I would have said, you know, three or four different things that I intended to talk about.
So let's get right into this, as all of you are aware because you're not living under a rock, the today announced that the March Madness tournament will not have fans present.
This was an order essentially recommended by Mike DeWine and the governor's you know, judicial people in Ohio.
So the kind of followed suit shortly thereafter.
You know, they Ohio came out about the 1st 4 games in Dayton and then in Cleveland, even.
And then it seems like the emcee at Double A, you know, is more information came out kind of just gave, uh, followed through with the recommendation and are banning all fans and Spectators at the event.
Now there are supposed to be still ah, select family members, apparently and obviously key team personnel in players, etcetera.
But it's going to make for an interesting watch on television if there is an event, and I'll get into that in a bit.
I don't really know how to start this off.
Other than saying, I agree with the decision.
I have done quite a bit of research on the topic because just 2 to 3 days ago I was one of the people that were saying This is just another regular flu that everybody gets in the media is blowing this out of proportion, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
And I do believe that some of that is true.
I do believe the media is blowing it out of proportion.
I believe they are not reporting all of the fax.
I believe they are invoking fear in people more so than educating them, which is what they should be doing.
That said, from what I know is on Lee, based on a few sources here, I'm just gonna forgive me.
I'm kind of looking down on my phone, but I want to make sure that I quote this stuff accurately, say you guys can go and view it yourself.
As most of you probably know, the Joe Rogan podcast had a guest When it's recently and I don't I don't know exactly what his qualifications are.
His name is Michael Poster home.
You'll have to take a look at this.
He okay? I'll just read this.
He's an internationally recognized expert in infectious disease.
He is a professor, presidential endowed chair in public Health.
The director of the Center of Infectious Disease Research and Policy Distinguished Teaching Professor in the division of Environmental Health Sciences.
School of Public Health.
You know, you kind of get the picture here.
This podcast is a little over an hour and 1/2 long, but it is very informative.
And from what I've read, this guy is actually very well respected in the community.
And he points out a lot of interesting fax about the disease.
And while I'm not going to get into that because again I'm not qualified to do that, we're more so focusing this on the tournament.
But I do want to kind of touches touch on just the nature of the disease.
So this is not a normal flu.
This is a strain from the way I understand it's a strain off a flu that is similar to other Corona viruses.
You know, there are several viruses.
They're like influenza and several other flu viruses that go around on a yearly basis.
This is another one of those.
But this is a virus that no one has ever had before this.
So whereas we would normally get a flu or like a cold, for instance, those air considered Corona viruses from my understanding.
But since we've been getting them since we're like, six years old and our body and immune system has fought those off were able to get past them in a few days.
Whereas this is a new virus, this is not something that is, is a flu virus.
From the recommendation of this guy on Joe Rogan podcast, he said that this is actually 10 times more likely to cause serious problems.
Okay, I guess my wife just sent this to me as she works in the hospital, and she just got back.
Colonel, Live updates.
Okay, so washing your hands, death toll rises the 33 okay, we'll go on without March.
Madness will go on without fans.
Okay? And I think I knew that I don't know that I am able to click on that, so I apologize for that.
But apparently there's some sort of update that I'm not able to access anyways.
As I was saying, this is something to take more serious than the normal flu because it is going to spread basically regardless, you know, all these masks and gloves and sanitizer is only going to do so much and then, But we can't prevent it that, you know, it's something that you inhale.
Basically, just breath, you know, just you, pat.
It's so easy to pass back and forth, and that's the scare among everything and the only way to put a halt to it, or at least slow down.
The progress is to cut off contact human human interaction.
So I understand that it seems like it's a bit much for the double A to do.
You make such a brash move and and do this for the entire tournament.
But you also have to think of it from their perspective.
You know, if a snake has a disease or something, you cut it off of the head and you try to hold the progress of it, and this is really the only way that they know how to do that.
And while it's not going to be as aesthetically pleasing tow.
Watch the games and it's probably gonna be a bit more annoying, actually listening to some of the sounds on TV without the fans and everything else.
And it could impact the games because there's not as much momentum swings and home field advantage and all that stuff plays into things.
But keep in mind that this is for our entertainment.
And as much as I love sports and I hope to God that they do not cancel the tournament altogether, I do understand where they're coming from because this is for pure joy and entertainment that we tune into these things.
And let's be honest, the NC Double A is going to lose, eh? Tahn of money and the university's gonna lose a ton of money if fans aren't there, but they don't need that money.
They have so much more money than you could even imagine.
So I do not feel sorry for the schools.
I do not feel sorry for the NC double, which is probably one of the more greedy organizations in the United States.
And the other thing that not a lot of people are talking about that I'd like to touch on is another reason why I think they could have probably canceled this.
I looked this up just cause I was curious, Adam.
At my own curiosity, I kind of looked up a few things.
Just based on statistics on, um who might be able to afford going to these games? I kind of came to the conclusion what, whether true or false, that most people that are going to these games or that are willing to pitch in a ton of money are the ones that are kind of in the higher upper class citizen.
So I did some research here and according to, uh, my Google Research here, and this is just preliminary, so don't hold me to it.
But one Only 1% of millionaires in this country are under the age of 35 the average age of a millionaire.
And this a millionaire is just your net worth.
So this is your assets minus your liabilities.
This isn't that you're making over a $1,000,000.
This is just that you're worth technically worth a $1,000,000.
So I'm just kind of assuming that these are the people that have the most money.
These are the ones forking over the money.
Thio, you know, by good seats to these events.
These events are extremely expensive.
And I see a staff that says the average millionaire is 62 years old and 38% of millionaires are 65 older.
So who do you guys think you're going to buy tickets and go to these games? A decent amount of older people.
So that brings me back to the Corona virus.
All the stats I'm reading, 95 to 96% of the people that are hit with critical condition in death rates are older people because their immune systems can't fight off the disease.
So I assume that was a thought of the double A's because they're putting their fans at risk and they know who their demographic is.
And my guess is that they kind of looked at this and was like, You know, most of these older guys the ones that are forking over all this money to go to the games, and we need to protect them so they do have tons of insurance that cover lawsuits and those types of things for catastrophic events from people.
If they were to goto event and get a sickness and tried to sue the inside Double A.
They do have insurance on that stuff, but this is like an unprecedented thing that probably wasn't included in their insurance policies.
So just keep that in mind.
So they're everyone's just playing it cautious.
So I get it your disappointment.
You wanna watch the games? I do, too.
I hope to God that they go on.
But all I'm saying is I completely understand why they would take these actions get ahead of the disease because that's the only way to cut off this madness from happening.
According to the research, I've looked into 40 to 50% of citizens in the United States air gonna be infected with this disease.
It's just that most of us have immune systems that are capable of fighting and off, like we would a different type of flu.
But there is still that unknown factor that we don't know about, and they're just trying to be safe.
So I get it from their perspective, and I have a feeling a lot of people don't buy into the seriousness of it, and I'm not here to tell you that I know it all.
And I'm not here to tell you that you should freak out and go buy everything in the store because, well, for one, all the toilet paper's already gone already checked.
But nonetheless, I just want to point out that it isn't the end of the world, but it is probably more serious than what you're giving it credit for.
Look into it. Do some research.
I gave you that little link to the YouTube clip with Joe Rogan and the doctor.
But I also wanted to give you this because this is an article I found and it explains almost more in depth.
And I can even understand it's gonna take you a while.
But if you're really dedicated to getting through it and trying to understand it, I think it'll do.
Does a good job of educating.
And if I could just find it here? I'm not kidding.
It'll take you probably 20 to 30 minutes to get through it.
It is our world.
In data is the company name, and I found this off of Twitter.
Okay, so our world in data dot or ge slash corona virus, it will tell you probably Maura, about the virus than you want to know.
But if you care to know that is that Take a look at it, see what you guys think.
And if you disagree with me, But you know, let's let's keep this discussion going.
Follow me on Twitter and J.
Crockett, 24 comment on this video if you want to.
Uh, some crazy stuff just happened in the N b A.
Apparently Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma City game got cancelled because Rudy go bare and maybe one other guy had the flu.
And now they're like checking check, apparently checking to see if they have Corona virus and they already started the game.
But then they paused it, and then they can't.
So this is madness.
I get This is crazy.
And but let's just enjoy it while, you know, while we can try to get a laugh out of it while we can.
But take it serious.
Do you do the things you're supposed to do to take care of your bodies so we can keep having these dreams for long? You know, many more days, so my rant is over again.
