I totally agree with you. We should lead by example. There is no postponement, risk of getting the league voided or anything that can justify a rush to games.jackgg wrote: ↑15 Dec 2020, 10:20 Anyone else a bit surprised that we're going ahead with games this weekend? Last I checked, Waltham Forest had the 2nd-highest rate of positive cases in London, with Newham and Hackney not far behind, and London will be in Tier 3 restrictions from Wednesday.
Also, the W1T game on Sunday just gone was postponed because "a few of our players have tested positive" according to the club Twitter.
I get that it should be up to the team committees whether to play or not (and hopefully players feel that they are able to say so if they don't want to), but surely as a club we have a duty of care to the players, staff, volunteers, fans, community, etc. - not least a week before when many might be planning to spend time with family, etc.
In Italy clubs at our level haven't even ever started the 2020/2021 league. It's an issue, but there are more important ones at the moment. As a Club with the values we proclaim, it's sad we're falling behind the football addiction rather than stepping back and trying to make brave, strong decisions.
Said that I am not sure also what role the leagues play in this. They could be part of the problem too.
