    Fuck man, that's a good attitude but that is shitty. Those rich assholes should pay you like you're traveling, they're saving the money from not moving you around (that's not a TheHCP is fat joke I don't engage in that sort of shit). They still get to broadcast the game and besides being in a different place every other night, the function of your job specifically doesn't change at all.

    Do you guys usually have your own camera operators on the road or do teams just always share the same video feeds? If you do have coworkers that do that are they just completely out of work for half of their games now?

    Not traveling in this shit has got to be safer too...that's a perk. Sorry you lost some income ...lots of people have but at least it's not spent in the hospital.

    Well the league already adapted the 10 day wait down to 5……. I have a weird feeling were about to start seeing less cases right? Since almost half the league has already got it. Wish I knew more about the numbers and odds of somebody fully vaccinated and boosted getting it a 2nd time.

    If the Nets try to do this it will be quite the PR story in NYC... might even get the mayor/city to amend rules for larger fines.

    So looks like there will be no more players/coaches/staff out on health and safety protocols.

    Great news. Eventually I don’t think anybody is going to care if your positive with Covid as long as your not showing symptoms.

    There seems to be a sense everybody is over this shit. Just get your shots and move on

    I think we're all getting a little complacent because Omicron isn't as deadly. It's not; but it is more widespread than any of the Covid strains and when there's such a large pool of infection is when new variants arise. The next variant might not be as 'forgiving' as Omicron (and people are still dying from it)

    Just get your shots. Nobody really cares anymore at this point. It’s to the point where we’re all like “call us when the shots don’t work whatsover for a variant”

    Tomorrow is our last day of mandatory daily testing. Interesting with things going so bad the league is taking this stance. I will be glad to not have to test everyday for sure though.

    I think the league have been a pretty good barometer of where things are going. The surge seems to flatten and I suspect that based on what they see internally, in the country and what we have seen elsewhere in the world - they believe that cases and issues are going to reduce soon. Hope they are right.

    I also think they are looking at the fact that no player or coach has reportedly become significantly sick from Omicron. All have been mild cases with limited or no symptoms.

    Good. Because there’s nothing else you can do after getting your shots. Life needs to move on. Call me when a variant comes that the vaccine doesn’t work for. Till then glad the league is moving on from all this arbitrary bullshit

    If people are vaccinated just treat it like we do with the measles... you have your vaccine and thats it. When have you taken a Measles tests? It has killed way more people than covid.

    If people aren't vaccinated make them do daily testing or whatever.

    We're coming up on the third year of this, at some point we all got to move on.

    I got it right after new years, am boosted, and it was like a very minor cold. 4 years ago would've thought nothing of it and gone to work every day. My 75 year old dad got it and had same minor symptoms. It was a very big pain in the ass for me as I was traveling internationally. All the restrictions and social anxiety we have in kids growing up now is worse than the virus.

    Plus to wizenheimer point, we haven't heard of a singe vaccinated player, coach, or staff with significant symptoms. Time to move on from this.

    Yup it’s all bullshit at this point. Holla at me when a variant comes out the vaccine doesn’t work for. Then panic
