    I’m no Djokovic fan but what i read was that he’s against forced travel vaccinations which is not quite the same as being an anti-vaxxer. Yes, vaccinations are essential and have done a huge amount of good in the world, but they have gone wrong in the past and if he’s going to be forced to take a vaccine before we can study the long-term effects of it then it’s understandable he might be cautious about it.

    However, if he said he is against vaccinations in general it was indeed a very dumb thing to say. Either way, I’m still going to call him Novax Djokovic from now on. :P

    I agree with you, it's kind of a leap in logic when it's clear he was opposed to the covid 19 vaccine that may be out early. People just want something to be angry over.

    Novax Djocovid-19 is a great name though....

    My personal opinion, we should discuss covid only in the context of volleyball. I remember there was another thread where members analyzed which teams benefitted from the delay in Olympics and which teams were harmed. I think that was good and more in spirit with the forum, which should be volleyball first.

    Yes, this is something that world leaders need to take into consideration when deciding to shut down economies: when people lose their jobs, a portion of them go homeless or hungry (as two examples) and then a portion of them die.

    The goal should be to minimize all deaths related to the outbreak, including the ones from economic measures, and not just the ones from infections. This is not an easy choice to make but if opening the economy saves more people in the long run then that's the right thing to do...

    Again this is not to discount the suffering of those infected with coronavirus (I myself am symptomatic but can't get tested; it could just be a fever) but when you're a world leader making decisions you have to minimize the negative impact to the majority of people.

    In Canada, supported the American government closing it's borders with us.

    This makes it so much more difficult. At least you are giving us something to do during quarentine ;)

    I'd agree with your roster mostly, some changes:

    De Gennaro <==> Kotoe Inoue

    Boskovic <==> Egonu

    Tomkom <==> Maja

    but idk, i was mostly focused on replacing tomkom with a taller setter (for blocking) and Maja was the first one that came to my mind. So then I had to replace Boskovic and then led to a bunch of replacements.

    Everyone thinks it won't affect them until it does.... Virus doesn't need passport or visa.

    What you saw happen in Italy and what is still happening there and the whole world... it's going to happen here in Brazil, and it will be worse, much worse... Just wait and see... And for me, I'm trying to stay calm, God knows I'm trying, but I don't know how much I can handle, I don't know how long I can take it... I know you all get pretty agitated when we talk about politics and that a lot of people won't care about any of this.. But this parasite needs to fuck the hell off, or worst, because, if he doesn't, we will (continue to) suffer... we will die!

    So, after all that off my chest... In the end, when this is all over, please, never forget what happened, remember to empathize with each other, remember that your life is worthy, A LOT, but as much as anyone's life and vote for what's right, for good people who cares about people, not capitalism puppets. Please!

    Yikes. Hang in there
