“They could call it a pledge, they could call it a waiver, they could call it a release, they could call it a cantaloupe.”

The first lawsuit where a school raises one of these cantaloupes as a bar to a damages claim arising out of COVID-19 is gonna be interesting.

And, yes, I probably misspelled “ugly” at the end of that sentence.

One response to ““They could call it a pledge, they could call it a waiver, they could call it a release, they could call it a cantaloupe.”

  1. I’m afraid you’re right but it was inevitable that they would do it this way. We see reports of positive tests and I’m guessing in a locker room environment if one of them is positive they almost all will be in short order so they’re “dipping the herd” whether they intend to or not.
    I’ll be curious to see (assuming we have a season) what protocol is followed as to who plays and who doesn’t. Are they going to let positive but asymptomatic play? If I’m non-positive but not comfortable playing against someone who is to I get to sit?
    You know, as I’m typing I had the thought that this would be a really good time for the NCAA to step up and provide direction for their member programs….
