    You may disagree with the mask policy, but I don't know how a reasonable person can believe it's not the choice of the GU administration to set their rules and the choice of others to decide whether or not to attend.

    The stats are clear on vaccines. They are clear on masks. I wear one around Covid+ patients frequently at the hospital and I've never had a positive test. Do they work in a stadium of 6000? Not sure, don't care as pertains to this debate. It's Gonzaga University not Stockton University. He chose to break the rules, the consequences are only logical.
    You believe Coach’s and players on sideline and broadcasters should follow rules?

I guarantee you the people complained the game are wearing fake N-95 Masks or wearing cloth both of which offer zero protection per the CDC. If you are that worried getting Covid then don’t attend the 6000 plus people who are coughing, belching, and farting. #TeamStockton.

      If GU pushes this issue publicly any further then you’ll see donations dry up and I’ll be one of them.
      Where do you get those numbers? All I see are prominent people making fun of the 100-150 professional athletes dropping dead. Stockton is a laughing stock. It's really sad what he has done to his image.
      Bring back the OCC

        50% of country agrees with him…..you’re reading responses from the other 50%

          The rules set by the university are for spectators, which is what John Stockton is.

            1. I’m seriously interested and so is the majority of the board. 2. You don’t think it’s germane to this whole conversation?

              I don’t see players(on the sideline) or coaches or broadcasters wearing masks in the kennel.

                WA state says otherwise.

                  Is that for private venues as well as public venues? If so, then yes, that requirement should be followed.

                      maybe more feel it’s unfair that majority of the country watching basketball games in person without masks while taking away one Mans season tickets.

                      seems heavy handed to most…..imo

                        The final letter of your post is doing some heavy lifting. o for "opinion." John Stockton has the same opinion. Maybe 50% of the country does as well. It doesn't matter if it's "fair" or not. It's the rule that Gonzaga University has set for fans. Protest the rule? fine. Complain to admin? fine. Post a strongly worded letter? fine. Until things change, he can't attend because he doesn't believe the rules apply to him.

                          The rest of the country doesn't have an indoor mask mandate like Washington State does. I don't know what to tell you. I don't really feel bad for Stockton wearing a mask for a couple hours when my daughter wears one all day on the bus and during school. My wife wears one for 10-12 hours a day at her job.

                          • At some point people need to start pushing back against this whole charade of disease theater re: pointless masks (if you want a real mask policy, enforce N95's and give them--ideally, more than three--to the public for free). Cloth masks don't work against Omicron, period. I can provide 10 peer-reviewed PubMed studies if you want (the WHO agrees), but it's probably easier for you to just start reading some for yourselves: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8016026/

                            We can debate vaccine safety and effectiveness, but at the end of the day the futile mask mandates (like the high-cycle PCR tests) are driving a massive and unnecessary wedge between people for no purpose other than to create chaos. The rest of the country has started to figure this out, but it looks like WA/OR/CA have invested way too much in the narrative to admit that the mask policies (which were rooted in a disinformation campaign by the CDC at the beginning of the pandemic falsely claiming that CoV-2 was not aerosolized but spread primarily by respiratory droplets) are not backed by science.

                            I applaud Stockton and I hope at some point in the near future the University and the Stockton family can reconcile for the greater good.

                              better make sure rules are applied equally…..meaning coach’s, players on the bench and broadcasters mask up.

                              Rules are rules
