Honestly,  Am I the only one reacting to Rhule coughing multiple times in yesterday's presser?

What are the rules for covid-19 testing in the league?

8.10, 8.18, 9.25, 10.18 and 11.55 for example. 

Surprised no "journalists"  brought it up. Even a negative test could be newsworthy.

 

I definitely noticed it and did wonder if someone would bring it up in the interview when I watched it, but I'm not sure that's an appropriate question for a journalist to ask, to be quite honest.

as for league protocols, the rules differ for vaccinated personnel vs unvaccinated personnel, and Rhule is vaccinated. Rhule would have to be a confirmed close contact of someone who tested positive, or be showing symptoms himself to even require a test right now. a few coughs do not constitute symptoms, as far as I know.

obviously coughing these days raises eyebrows immediately to many, but keep in mind it's allergy season and even aside from that, there's a ton of reasons why someone would be coughing like that. they weren't chest coughs, to my ears. I get that it's something that catches everyone's ears right now though.

even considering all that, Rhule has at no point struck me as someone who would try to conceal something like that.

I thought that was part of the job desciption of a journalist, to find out things.

This is why I posted. Because I dont know the rules and there could be a legitime reason for his reaction to not be a concern. But if no one ask, like som fluff journalist dont, only raises questions. In my mind atleast.

Looking at how some other responded to me (not directed to vorbis). I guess Covid-19 is not longer a concern in the US.............

Ok went and watched he whole thing.  Yeah - I agree the cough is a bit concerning.  It wasn't something water fixed for him.  But with that said - I expect / hope we are just being overly sensitive about something 18 months ago we literally would have thought nothing of.

 

Sometimes a Cold is just a Cold.
