    Its fun to speculate on random shit from twitter.

    That's the justification for the transfer rumours thread (which kills the discussion on the forum) so why can't this exist ?

    According to Swim Ireland, I'm an elite level athlete as I very occasionally make 30 second appearances in the top level of Irish Water Polo. I know this because during the extreme lockdowns they tried to push for teams to be allowed to train again while everyone else was on the sofa.

    If my heart explodes during training, it's up to @Athens to break the news around here.

    @Bradley died, everyone. His heart exploded during training.

    I thought I would do it now, in case I forget to do it after it happens.

    I imagine that's the case for most of these, it wasn't Covid nor the vaccine.

    Yep. I can't remember if I said it in this thread or not, but I reckon the rise will largely be in part to some form of doping and/or increased levels of intensive training

    They probably don't know how the vaccines might interact with the various PEDs that are being prescribed. We mentioned that too.

    Well no, if memory serves I mentioned that after that bodybuilder died after taking the vaccine. If memory also serves, everyone else frothed at usual thinking they were smarter than me. It's only now that footballers who don't have any history of dying from PED abuse are dying, that you are suddenly forced to contemplate the interaction between the vaccine and PEDs.

    People with no history of dying, are now dying?

    That's your best one yet.

    See, there's the small problem that we don't know who's taking PEDs and who isn't.

    That's the coroner's problem. We're talking about deviations from the expected number of deaths in a sample.

    Also "small problem"? You think people dying is a small thing? That is an insult to footballers. It's an insult to life. It's an insult to humans, and an insult to God their creator. You owe them all an apology.

    Plus lots of fixtures in a short time to finalise the covid-interrupted season and then shorter pre-season. Loads of factors here, and training load will be significant.
