My IQ may be slipping and has been numbed from multiple concussions in recent years, but somehow my brain doesn't comprehend why the SWINE FLU EPIDEMIC was treated with kid gloves with absolutely NO panic and massive hysteria. The SWINE FLU killed 15,000 Americans and 500,000 worldwide and infected millions in the US. Inquiring would like to know. HUH, I wonder why. Hmmm I'm stumped.

Well Well. Someone has the gonads to actually compare apples to apples.

"2009-2010 swine flu: 60 million Americans infected in a 10-month period, 300,000 hospitalized. 18,000 deaths. This is just a mere 10-11 years ago, We didn’t suspend anything. We didn’t stop anything. The Masters happened, NCAA happened. Major League Baseball season happened. The NFL draft and the NFL season, the preseason happened, spring training happened."

First off why are you so worked up about the cancellations unless you have stake in the game. Second maybe if things had been done like now those numbers would not have been quite so severe

OK Anderson. Nothing political intended. I edited my post to just state the facts. The insane thing about all of this CURRENT PANIC is that Swine Flu was more severe and there was NOTHING--NADA re PANIC ! I did take Logic 101 and 102 at NU, this doesn't pass the freakin smell test. Just IMO. I'm pissed . As directed by the media, we should all panic go home and sulk ! No Sports --It sucks !

Have to agree with anderson here. Perhaps this pandemic is being handled better by our government than was the swine flu. Only time will reveal the ultimate numbers. Both in human cost and financial. We are only three months into it versus the ten months or so of H1N1 crisis. Frustrating, no doubt. But hopefully worth the community effort.

Nice Aritcle in Philly newspaper regarding JAM
