Re: POLL: Strongest 2020 line up: Second rowers

I just don't see backrowers getting torn to shreds for defending in a tough position on here. Most posters seem to get it. Mind you we haven't had much to complain about in that department- Papalli, Tapine, Whitehead, Bateman, a bit of Young. Pretty good run really. Bronson Harrison is the last sec...

That wasn’t my point.

The point was if your sample is not representative you should take care when extrapolating.

Nothing wrong with your stats, but I would add that 140odd million is a fair sample size to work out the average of the nations biases.

Pigman is right.

I suggest to help the GH kick the habit this season that we replace a negative comment about CHN with a new habit. I suggest a negative post about pigman or gangrenous instead.

Yeah, last time the police had complete benefit of the doubt for me. They still would have it after Scott too if it had just been that the case was dropped in light of the evidence.

True, probably more accurate to call what we have an aggressive suppression strategy targeting elimination in a short but not minimal period.

No the definition for elimination is not refusing to accept that quarantine breaches can occur... From my understanding the difference between suppression and elimination is the aggressiveness with which you tolerate cases. With an elimination strategy you tend to lockdown as hard and fast as you ca...

Re: Coronavirus

It depends if the person was infectious at the time of the contacts. If they weren’t it doesn’t matter how contagious it is and that is a meaningless inference to draw.

All you need to do is look at the UK to know that’s a mistake.

I think that’s a bit like getting kids to sit two maths tests at once. Extra overhead and only changes things in rare occurrences, because chances are if you fail one test you fail both.
