    President Trump

    BTW nice try at deflection RTB - but back to President Trump - his own (recorded) words condemn him. https://www.france24.com/en/20200320-from-hoax-to-pandemic-trump-s-shifting-rhetoric-on-coronavirus

    Taking responsibility in difficult circumstances. Putting your staff first. Above everything, doing what is right despite the personal consequences. In other words, leadership. Maybe those traits don't appeal RTB. If so, that says everything anyone needs to know.

    Well I suppose you have to laugh about it - or else you might decide to sue someone for deliberate misinformation that directly led to thousands of people dying because they listened to you. There is Constitutional protection of freedom of speech, but there is not protection from the consequences of your speech. The President and Rupert Murdoch's Fox News are now desperate to spin the story they always cared about the CoronaVirus and everything that happened is someone else's fault. But unfortunately for them it's on tape..

    As Fox starts to refurbish its propaganda around "nobody could have known, Obama didn't prepare the US for this, 100,000 deaths is better than 2.4 million..... Nicole Wallace is a presenter who for years was a Republican President's assistant... so no "bleeding Liberal"

    President Trump

    Oh where to start .... a) Trump's appointed CDC head and Surgeon General both told people NOT to wear a mask. b) A valid reason for that action (if it were explained so) would be people were buying up and hoarding N95 class filtration masks, which is what healthcare workers need to PROTECT THEMSELVES from viral infection when working in the "hot zone" of a hospital ER/ICU. Despite companies and agencies rummaging in the cupboards to see what they could find there remains a massive shortage of N95 class filtration masks. The US is even intercepting orders for masks made by 3M in China destined for other countries and re-routing them here. An act which may have Canada refuse to send nurses to the USA. c) The alternative style of "surgical mask" which is nothing more than a filter to catch droplets from the wearer being ejected onto others if the wearer sneezes...and something you see every day in Asia, as wearing one PROTECTS OTHERS, was also not recommended by Trumps administration... something about it may hold in illnesses in or words to that effect. d) Now the Trump administration says "oh, we recommend you wear a mask". And guess what YOU CANNOT BUY ANY..... the stores have none, if you try and buy online today your delivery is "between Apr 26 - May 17" . e) So here is the same Surgeon General showing people how to make a mask from a T-Shirt and rubber bands. Now do you really believe that we shouldn't have and now we should, or is it because they knew there were no masks? Taiwan was able to GIVE every citizen two masks every week....why can't the US? But I am sure because of MAGA the world is respecting America again. It's just utter incompetence all around RTB. I know that he's your guy; own it.
  8. That article is as clear as mud. Are the 30% player wage cuts to cover the previously announced P145m from the EPL to the NHS and EFL, or is it to cover the EPL’s expected revenue drop from loss of gates / loss of TV rights fees?

    PL statement

    If it was funded that way then we’d have a “proper” Division 1 again filled with “big clubs” that included Leeds, Sunderland, Sheff Wed etc. Fortunately for us Bournemouth, Burnley, Watford and Palace get lower crowds - out you lot go and let your betters in instead! Unfortunately for us several other clubs have bigger grounds - including Derby, Forest, Boro, Cardiff, Birmingham, and Ipswich

    Football funded by attendance at the gate Bill?
  11. Donating £20m to the NHS and £125m to the non-EPL clubs is a good start EPL. Now just cancel the remaining games and void the season and have done with it. Over to you Sky... are you going to ask for the TV rights money back now?

    I hope (like everyone similarly affected) that he is able to recover... https://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/breaking-kate-garraways-husband-derek-21808146 KATE Garraway’s husband Derek Draper is in intensive care battling coronavirus. The Good Morning Britain presenter has been forced off the ITV show because she has symptoms too and is now self-isolating with her children.

    Thank the Lord, the cavalry has assured.... The President's son-in-law fresh from providing peace in the Middle East... who on earth knew that until now the US Government was not using data to make decisions? US Army and FEMA you're fired....

    Third Division North / Third Division South worked well enough for almost 40 years following WW1
