Oh man.  I’m so glad I muted NBCSN.  Babblecock in the intermission analysis. 

No, thank you.

Not wanting to get ahead of things but a VGK/Tampa Cup final will potentially be a great series.

[/rant] All I hope for in the next round is that the league will ditch the Fauci Mask Madness for the coaching staffs. There are 15,000 people in the stands without masks. The coaches have almost certainly all been vaccinated. And yet they stand there behind their benches constantly pulling down and pushing up their damn masks.

At the end of the game tonight, both coaching staffs took off their masks and went out on the ice to shake the hands of other team’s coaches and players. So stop this fricking virtue signaling move of having them wear masks behind their own benches. Enough of this crap. [/rant]

Now let me tell you how I feel about AJ Mleczko.  LOL

Fauci Mask Madness

See, this is what saddens me. Dr. Fauci had NOTHING to do with making coaches wear masks. Your ire should be with the NHL owners. To think otherwise is naive.

That’s exactly where my “ire” lies, cal. Fauci is simply the one telling people to keep wearing masks even if they’re vaccinated (although his opinion changes day by day and week by week).

It’s the NHL who apparently can’t figure out that if they let fans in without masks, it’s also safe for the coaches to ditch the masks. It’s time for common sense to start determining our path moving forward.

That is simply not true. Dr. Fauci recommends unvaccinated people wear masks as they may possibly pass the virus on.

(although his opinion changes day by day and week by week).

That’s called science. You change as information evolves.

So, *#$%@& Pissburgh.

And *#$%@& Bahstin.

And double *#$%@& Colorablow.

If someone can knock off, Tampon Bay, I’ll be pleasantly surprised; however, as of this moment, my 2021 playoff dreams are complete.

*#$%@& LOL at all three of those cork-soaking, icehole teams. Enjoy your golf, bitches.

Also: LEAVE FAUCHI ALONE!! I don’t want to stray into politics, but when you’ve got a petulant child making demands that directly oppose the science, of course a player has to keep his job.

That is simply not true. Dr. Fauci recommends unvaccinated people wear masks as they may possibly pass the virus on.

Sorry, cal, but it is true. And he was still recommending it as late as a month ago.

This is from a Microsoft News article on May 10th: “The CDC’s guidelines still say that fully vaccinated people should wear masks in indoor public settings. While Dr. Fauci said he agreed that these rules should be relaxed in the future, he also emphasized that continuing to prioritize getting vaccines into arms was key.”

That’s called science. You change as information evolves.

That argument would carry more weight if his emails didn’t show that he was basing his decisions on political reasons as much as on science. And some of those political reasons involved him trying to protect his friends at the Wuhan Lab.

Wow, what a damning statement. /s Dr. Fauci agreed with the CDC’s guidelines. Lock him up!

From the same article: “While Dr. Fauci’s words gave us something to look forward to, for now, we must continue to wear masks when we’re around people from outside our household, especially when we’re indoors.”

Sounds like common sense to me.

You are stating your opinion without evidence. There is more than enough misinformation already out there. Please don’t add yours to it. We’re done here.

Posted by calquake from a.k.a. Shakeandquake

It’s pretty arrogant of you, cal, to declare “we’re done” after you gloss over the fact that Fauci did, indeed, say that those who are vaccinnated should continue wearing masks indoors. That was the whole point in my original comment, something you said was “simply not true.”

You are stating your opinion without evidence.

The emails are the evidence. And even members of the liberal media are now questioning the motivation behind a lot of Fauci’s pronouncements about what was or wasn’t “safe” or what was or wasn’t “true.”

When I said, “We’re done here.” I meant just that. If you want to debate politics or public health policy, send me an PM from your control panel and we can continue debating one another. This is a hockey blog. No need to drag politics through it.

This is a hockey blog. No need to drag politics through it.

My original point, cal, was that it’s “politics” that’s keeping coaches wearing masks behind the benches even though they and the players are almost certainly vaccinnated. If the NHL really was “following the science,” no coach would be wearing a mask unless he personally decided to do it.

It was the height of hypocrisy the other night for the coaches to wear masks during the entire game and then to take them off when it was over, all while shaking hands and speaking just inches apart with the other team’s coaches and players. It makes no sense whatsoever.

Anyway, I’ll let the points I made speak for themselves and you can do the same. I highly doubt that either of us going to change the other’s mind about this issue.
