Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 04, 2021

The NFL's chief medical officer wants fans to know New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is not a doctor. So, when Belichick says something that's in no way backed up by science, you probably shouldn't listen to him. That's precisely what happened Wednesday. Belichick responded to a question about Cam Newton's release by saying a "high number of players, coaches and staff members" have tested positive for COVID-19 after they were fully vaccinated. The NFL's chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills wants Belichick " and NFL fans " to know that's not true. Dr. Sills and his team have gathered data over the past couple weeks, and it shows there are higher rates of infection among individuals who are not vaccinated, according to MassLive.com. "We released our data last week from the first three weeks of August, and that data has consistently shown higher rates of infection in unvaccinated players than in vaccinated players.

Medically factual information does not seem to register with some.

You have to be a moron to get this from what Bill said.

Bill gives nothing to the media

They asked if Cams Vax status contributed to his being cut.

A player getting covid can really hurt the team this year... so Bill gave a nothing answer...

Vaccinated players have tested positive too... meaning it didn't matter either way he could impact the team with covid...

He never said anything about rates of infection. What he said was true, you can still test positive if you're vaccinated.

#3 you mean the league that cares more about optics than facts?

Tell me what Bill said that wasn't factually correct, pal.

"Tell me what Bill said that wasn't factually correct"

"High number".

"High" is relative. Relatively, however, the number is NOT high. The number is not even in the "top half". If a relative term is used, the proper one would be "low".

Pro Tip: "High" and "Low" aren't the same thing. Opposites, in fact.

You truly are a moron.

Bill said a high rate of players, coaches, and staff members have tested positive.

The Moron from the league responded with his idiocy about more players who are unvaxed getting diagnosed. Great. That doesn't mean that the rate at which players get diagnosed even after getting vaccinated can't still be considered high, even if it's less than the other rate.

Pro tip, no one used the word low, or made a comparison.

Pro tip, if you're going to be snarky be right.

The problem isn't Belichick, it's anti-vaxxers will interpret what Belichick said and turn it into anti-vaxx propaganda.

And the NFL doesn't want to be associated with that particular chunk of their fan base.

Nobody running a hundred billion dollar business does.

#9 Exactly...

idiots could misconstrue what he said to fit their agenda, and the league had to be on record of being fully in support of vax'ing.

legallyanidiot is the case in point for willfully running with this incorrectly to fit their agenda.
