Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

confirming what many of us thought was coming. No chance there will be games of any kind for the foreseeable future and I wouldn't get my hopes up for January either. Even if there is a vaccine which is a stretch it will take some time to inoculate several hundred million people. Best we can do is hope the rinks can stay open for skills this fall.

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

No games til January 2022

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

You trickster!!!! I did..... All over 60 hockey should be canceled. Practices, games and skills....

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

And this is the reaction to people being dumb and thinking rules were not for them. Kids and HS hockey is gonna get caught up in it. Well done folks.

It’s not the reaction it’s the “overreaction”. This 2% rate is well within “Green” at the federal level and 10th best in the nation.

This state is being run by a bunch of Chicken Littles.

It might be an overreaction and it still is a reaction. Doesn’t change the reason behind the delay.

So are we operating under the assumption now that a 2% positive rate doesn’t allow for forward progress? How do we ever move forward if the current situation is not good enough?

A very good question reasonable people are asking themselves. Sad part is no reasonable people seem to be in charge of making these decisions.

I’ve been saying this for weeks. If back when we were avg. 125 cases and a 1.7% infection rate we couldn’t have hockey games then we never were. And I don’t believe this BS about step 2 being put on pause because he never announced when step 2 would begin in the first place. He doesn’t tell anybody anything until last minute. It’s like a fake punishment. I’m pausing step 2 naughty children, but secretly I wasn’t planning on moving to step 2 until 10/1 anyways. Did anyone here really expect to play games until mid-September anyway? Did anyone really expect an announcement by the EEEA or DPH anytime soon? They want to fry the football folks first, they weren’t releasing any youth sports guidance until September. It’s all complete bs. if they were going to move hockey to moderate they would’ve done it with soccer.

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

Average age is 82!

Everyone get back in the house and put your masks on! Now, sheep!

That’s funny because your wife’s nickname for you is Chicken Little ๐Ÿคฃ. She said it refers to your wee willie.

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

I am so done with all this bull****. Let’s just lock ourselves in our houses forever. Don’t drive a car you could get in a head on collision. Don’t cross the street you could get run over. Don’t fly in a plane it may crash. Enough with locking everything down with a virus that the average age of death is friggin 82! For the normal healthy person it’s nothing more than a 2-3 day cold. For ****s sake

By all means, don’t follow any rules or reasonable safety measures. That’s fine. Just then stop the whining that there is no hockey. Because you are part of the reason....

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

I thought the quarantine was to flatten the curve. That has happened. Hospitals are no longer overwhelmed. This virus is not going to go away anytime soon so we need to get back to living.

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

It was never about step 2 of phase 3. Mass hockey is trying to get non-checking hockey reclassified from “high risk” to “moderate’ risk because moderate risk sports have been allowed to play games in step 1 of phase 3. I’m not saying I’m confident this will actually happen (because I’m not) but today’s announcement is not a confirmation that hockey games are done for the season.

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

Skills and drills. You wont see games in 2020 and NH and Rhody will be in the same boat soon.

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

I disagree. Other states will not follow anything Mass. does. Mass is trying to be the gold standard liberal state. Other states are trying to survive and stay afloat financially same time. Punishing and public shaming our residents. We are doing a dam good job here. Not residents fault they are seeking out positive results in high risk areas which is solely why we have an uptick. Then shutting business down when they get the predictable results and blame it on a select few instances. Boston is decimated and the rest of the state is not far behind. We also report more deaths than just about anyone in the country per case load. Their numbers are fishy at best. Get ready for double tax to live here.

Death numbers are super fishy, last week we had a day with 29 deaths, 21 were from nursing homes. Yesterday it was 39 and 25 of those were from nursing homes. So that could only mean 2 things -
1. Bakers administration and the DPH are so incompetent that here we are, the beginning of August, and they still can't protect nursing home patients.
2. Or the numbers are juiced and the 80+ year olds are dying of complications of pneumonia or copd and being listed as COVID19 for financial reasons.

So which is it?

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

Fakers numbers might be fake but the intent is real. Which is, shutting down life as we know it until Trump vacates the White House. If it’s 4 years from now, they don’t give a ****, they can wait, can you?

Youth sports is cooked for the remainder of 2020.

Yes that might be the case. Thanks to you and idiots just like you.

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

Ct and NH will soon shut the door to the migration of the Mass/Rhody crew in order to protect what it has now, freedom! Businesses are pressuring the Gov to stop outside groups from flooding the states and causing a jump in the rate. They want to keep the rate down so they can stay open!!

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

For the life of me I don't understand the reaction to this by the "let'em plan crowd".

The reason we're seeing so-called "reasonable" numbers is that the restrictions in place ARE WORKING!

Re: Baker Pause's Phase 3 Opening in Massachusetts

For the "restrictions are working guy", the Gov had the golf courses closed all Spring and then the restrictions were lifted and no impact on the numbers (or the numbers went lower). Same for casinos, church, and other activities such a sports games for some sports and practices for others. So who is to say playing no-check youth hockey is the dividing line between what is working and what won't work? (By the way, I'm certain that all the delayed opening did for golf courses was cause a lot of revenue loss for the courses and lack of recreation for the participants.)
