Stuart said doctors were unsure what caused the incident. "It was awful. I just spoke to the doctor and he said it was a seizure and they're unsure why, It doesn't seem to be any contact to the head, they're at a loss as to why it occurred."

This one, which I was watching live, made me laugh. Anything, but the vaccine. There is little doubt in my mind that Alcaraz would have gone on to beat Djokovic 3-1, if not for him cramping up. However, to be fair, Djokovic probably would have won one of the two Grand Slams he missed in 2022 (Oz and U.S.), if not both of them, due to his unvaccinated status. In his head, he should be thinking the vaccines cost him a Grand Slam and gained him a Grand Slam. It was also quite coincidental that it all happened on pro-vax Nadal's favourite court and that the vax victim was one of his countrymen.

'French Open 2023: Carlos Alcaraz says stress caused cramping in Novak Djokovic defeat.'

 

"At the beginning of the third set I started to cramp every part of my body, not only the legs. The arms, as well, every part of the legs. It was really tough for me to move at the third set, and in the fourth set let's say I had a little chance, but it was really tough. My full body started to cramp."

 

"The tension of the match was why the cramping happened. I started the match really nervous." (Sure thing, Carlos.)

This one made me laugh a bit. Simona Halep, a former world number one who has played in multiple Grand Slam finals, had to be tended to in the middle of her second round match at the French Open. She was suffering from breathing problems, which she has now put down to a panic attack. Maybe, she saw a 'Climate Change' billboard? Anything but the jab. Sigh.

Another 'panic attack'. Fair play, maybe Tsurenko did get a bit upset prior to the match, due to some disagreement with the WTA CEO, but still. Never the vaccine. 

 

 

https://www.tennis365.com/wta-tour/ukraine-lesia-tsurenko-panic-attack-following-talks-wta-chief-shocked/

 

'Ukraine’s Lesia Tsurenko suffered ‘panic attack’ after talks with WTA chief – ‘I was shocked by what I heard’.'

 

“The reason for the refusal was a panic attack. Officially it will be written ‘personal reasons’, but in fact it is breathing problems and, one might say, hysteria,” she told BTU.com.

So, in the end, Liverpool missed out on the Champions League by just 4 points. I wonder whether the Leicester and Chelsea boys were also well vaxxed up.

Too bad, Jurgen...

 

Leeds also....their fitness levels were among the best in the league the previous 2 yrs, then suddenly they are lethargic. Blamed on the shit owners of course.

 

Lampard repeatedly said the Chelsea squad's energy levels were not up to expected levels. Maybe another clue.

I don't follow football anywhere near as much as I used to. However, by default, if it's 'never the vaccine', then it must always be 'something else'.

 

P.S. Going back to Djokovic again, I would even go as far as to say that he is now better off, in terms of how 'Covid' restrictions and the vaccines have affected his legacy in the history of tennis. By virtue of winning the French Open this year, he is now the only male player to have won all of the Grand Slams at least three times. Another big stat in his favour, when it comes to the GOAT debate. I am adamant that if Alcaraz wasn't vaxxed up, then that wouldn't have happened.

I am sure that many of us heard about this story, but no one has yet posted it on this thread. Right at the time, I just knew that it would all be blamed on a congenital heart defect! 🙃

This article is good for a laugh. Especially, the bits about Dr. David J. Engel, director of the sports cardiology program at the Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York. Apparently, he can be found lurking in Suite 330. Ha ha ha. 😀

Very sad news. Another career ruined, but at least he is still alive. ☹️

The EPL have come up with a solution. All players are going to wear special heart detector vests or some contraption that will alert the medics in the dugout of any "problems". So I'd guess that if that goes ahead, you'll see sudden "tactical" substitutions and then if that player's not back for a while, we'll know why.

How much warning time could any such vest give though? I am no cardio expert, but I doubt that it would work quickly enough to save anyone from collapsing.

I'm no "expert" (.....) but I would guess they'll be looking for all kinds of signals and indicators that show any cardio irregularity....

 

Official word after the Luton event was Captain Tom hadn't been properly checked over again after his surgery or whatever he had after collapsing at Wembley in May.
