The mainstream media is pulling the old Detective Frank Drebin routine when it comes to the shocking number of professional soccer players dropping dead in Europe right now: “Move along, people! Nothing to see here!”
Wouldn’t it seem like a big, newsworthy story to you if 108 of the healthiest young professional athletes in the world suddenly dropped dead in one season? Seems like kind of a big deal. That’s the FIFA death toll so far in 2021, however, and the media seems wildly incurious about mentioning it.
In a typical pro soccer season, there will be roughly 20 athletes that have some sort of cardiac-related health problem on the field. But this year, there’s been a 500% increase in sudden, inexplicable cardiac fatalities on soccer fields in Europe.
Gee, we wonder what could be different about this year compared to all previous years of professional soccer, which could be contributing to this massive spike in unnecessary deaths? Are they all doing cocaine before the games?
There must be some answer to this incredible phenomenon. Unfortunately, no in the media seems interested in asking questions about it.
