Devin White hosting a party with 2,000 people expected

Buccaneers linebacker Devin White will host his second annual “Trail Ride” at his “Get Live Stables” in Cotton Valley, Louisiana, on Saturday.

The mayor of the town, C.C. Cox, told TMZ that 2,000 people are expected on the 20-acre property and that no COVID-19 precautions are required or will be enforced.

Louisiana State Troopers and the Webster Parish Sheriff’s office will work the party but will not enforce social distancing guidelines, Cox said.

“You just got to accept it,” Cox said. “I’m ready for it.”

White and the Buccaneers did not immediately respond to TMZ when asked for comment.

White, a first-round choice in 2019, made 91 tackles, an interception, 2.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in 13 games as a rookie.

  1. The season will never happen with guys throwing caution to the wind like this.

  2. I just became a fan of his. Look, if you’re scared, stay home. There are diseases, viruses and everything else in the world before there was covid19. You knew you could catch them. Some have cures, some don’t. A lot are more deadly than covid19. So, again, if you’re scared, stay home. White, like myself, and many many people, are going to live our lives. Btw, I have been deemed and essential worker since the pandemic broke out, been around everyone and everything. Not one person I worked with, including myself ever showed signed or missed work. So, again, I’m going to choose to live my life how I want..you live yours.

  3. Niners816: ‘You live yours and I’ll live mine’ doesn’t really apply in this. This mentality is why we’re failing as a country in this and why we’ll be the last to have our sports, our concerts, our everything as we knew it. Thousands are dying a day, hospitals are over capacity – have some heart for the people around you

  4. I’m okay with those folks who choose to “go on with their lives” and not practice social distancing. I just wish there was a way to keep them from contacting or infecting me or my more vulnerable relatives…… wait; there is. We are practicing social distancing & wearing masks in more crowded areas.

    All is good. Go for it…..at some point, the “herd immunity” will be met & life will return to normal.

  5. Not to make light of this, but when doing this during a pandemic and then talk about black live matter, then why are you doing this ? I hope he knows that blacks and hispanics are most affected by the virus.

  6. 10,000 people died YESTERDAY from hunger.
    And you’re worried about people catching the flu?

  7. Niners 816 is the perfect example of ignorance in this country, led by the Science Denier-in-Chief. Sure, anyone can go live their life. Go jump off a bridge, for all I care(possibly improving the gene pool). Problem is, people can be infected and have little or no symptoms. They can infect other, more vulnerable people. How do people not get that?? Many Americans confuse freedom with selfishness. And by the way, not wearing a mask doesn’t make anyone a ‘real man’ or a tough guy or a ‘real American’. It just advertises your stupidity.

  8. Does Las Vegas have odds on which NFL team has the most Covid positive tests among its players? The Bucs have to be the odds on favorite.

  9. Classic example of todays prima dona, glorified, athlete…….thinking that hes above the law, and everybody else should be making sacrifices, so that he can just continue to him.

  10. Classic example of todays prima dona, glorified, athlete…….thinking that hes above the law, and everybody else should be making sacrifices, so that he can just continue to be him.

    Your words have no meaning to me. Absolutely none. I’m still going to continue to live my life the way I want. Hide at home. That’s your choice.

    You’re an essential worker with that kind of attitude? I hope you at least wear a mask and wash your hands. You should be fired otherwise.

    Deaths are down 90% since April 16. Thousands are not dying every day, and hospitals are not over capacity. You are a coronabro stop watching the the fear porn news

  15. So you’re telling me this big bad virus doesn’t just skip around parties or take a detour around protests? Drives me crazy that PFT constantly pushes the fear and glosses over the fact that all these “hot beds” are a direct result of thousands gathering doing “peaceful” protests without masks or anything. Let’s instead call less than 10,000 “confirmed cases” (which we have no idea if those “confirmed” cases are actually COVID cases or people going in for an ulcer and they find antibodies) hotbeds when you look at the numbers it tells a significant difference story.

    STOP SPREADING THE FEAR

  16. You are led by those who said it was okay to shop and eat in Chinatown while the pandemic was hitting the US.

    That was wrong too. But it was based on fraudulent info disseminated by this joke of an administration. Did you all drink your disinfectant today? We are the only modern country in the world that hasn’t gotten this thing under relative control. Because of ignorance of a large part of the populace, kids won’t be able to go to school, people will still be out of work and a large part of the country(including sports) will have to be shut down while we return to square one. Yeah, go live your lives.

    Congratulations for the dumbest thing I have read in 2020. Took quite a bit to accomplish this.

  18. Job is deemed essential? Guarantee he’s no heathcare worker. Probably bags groceries. It would explain a lot.

  19. You realize that you can live your life AND not taunt the virus by intentionally having large parties, right?

    Because many of us are doing this, but unfortunately a lot of us are not which is why we are seeing spikes right not and hospitals are starting to bulge again.

  20. 4:03 PM PT — A rep for White tells us the NFL player WILL be encouraging COVID safety during the event.
    We’re told event organizers will be encouraging social distancing and for people to wear masks and wash their hands.
    We’re told the event — which includes a 6 mile trail ride — will raise money for local charities.

  21. Who knew stupidity was spreading even faster than Covid-19?

    It’s no wonder why the epidemic is winning this battle.

  22. And America wonders why they are knee deep in this while other countries around the world make progress….

    While you willfully put others at risk so you can have a good time. Maybe you should check in on those who have had it and you might have a different view. The ignorance is astounding. The country’s arrogance is being dealt with.

    So well said. I get encouraged that are still thoughtful, compassionate people with enough sense to see what’s staring them right in the face. The others are just too far gone to rationalize with. There truly are people who care about no one but themselves.

  25. This is exactly why we can’t go back to normal anytime soon because there are too many selfish idiots like him.

  26. … hospitals are not over capacity. You are a coronabro stop watching the the fear porn news

    Well , 40 hospitals in Florida have ICUS that are at capacity!

  27. Part of me almost wishes I could attend this event, catch the virus and then sue him for not practicing social distancing. The only thing stopping me from crashing the event, well, ha,ha……I don’t want to catch the virus.

    ***********************************************************************************

    When the elderly grandmother of the neighbor of White’s cousin who went to the party has to be hospitalized for COVID, make sure you tell the nurses and doctors that you just became a huge Devin White fan. I’m sure they’ll appreciate hearing that.

  29. I’m pretty sure EVERYTHING I did in college pales in comparison with Covid…seriously

  30. I just became a fan of his. Look, if you’re scared, stay home. There are diseases, viruses and everything else in the world before there was covid19. You knew you could catch them.

    Your personal experience regarding Covid is just that… personal. You have no experience with those who have been affected and while you’re free to live your life please remember that your experience isn’t representative of anyone else’s but your own .

  31. It’s actions like this that lead me to believe that the season may start but I have strong feelings that it may end prematurely.

  32. We have to live our lives, but we can’t be stupid. COVID-19 is going to be around until science comes up with an effective vaccine. I’m an essential worker (UPS delivery driver). I know of two people who have died from the virus and one who recently was released from the hospital after spending thirty-seven days in ICU. The pictures of him lying on his stomach (prone positioning), unconscious, with ventilator tubes running into his mouth, is sobering. I will continue to follow guidelines and be safe, but I will also try to enjoy life, but as someone once posted on PFT, eloquently put it, “the mindset of invulnerability” is just plain stupidity..

    Not sure where you’re getting your information from, but you need to look for a new source.
    – 40% of the ICUs in Florida are at capacity and that number is rising.
    – In Houston, Emergency rooms are so overwhelmed they’re turning people away, patients are
    waiting days for beds and ICUs are full.
    – ICUs in Arizona are filling rapidly and officials there are concerned about the toll
    that is being taken on healthcare workers.

    Get a clue.

  36. It is beyond stupid; it is antisocial. I couldn’t care about these idiots getting sick. They deserve it. But these dolts will spread the disease to grandparents, parents, co-workers, the guy working in the grocery store etc. it is a certainty that other people will get very sick. Some might die.

  37. With training camp around the corner I’m sure his Bucs teammates are thrilled with this news.

    Most sane and reasonable post on here. It’s real and it’s serious and if you don’t take this seriously FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS, then I don’t know what to say. But that attitude and our inept leadership is why we’re the global joke regarding Covid-19. You get it precisely.

    Stay safe brother.

  39. People still not grasping that they can spread the virus without knowing it has me wondering if this is pure stupidity or lack of empathy for others or a combination of both. America is being humbled right now. Meanwhile a small country like South Korea with a dense population of 52 million has under 300 deaths. See, they listen and care about each other. Meanwhile, back home…

    It should be common knowledge by now that you can catch Covid-19 twice and that “herd immunity” doesn’t apply, but sure …go for it.

  41. Lifelong lung damage is one of the after-effects for survivors of coronavirus, and it’s certainly something that would end a professional football career.

  42. “You just got to accept it,” Cox said. “I’m ready for it.”

    Really? Are you ready for the potential consequences? Yesterday the USA had over 71,000 new cases. Whilst people in position of authority have this mindset, people will sadly get ill or die. I guess you just got to accept it!

  43. Japan has less than 1,000 covid deaths. They never went into full economic shutdown. They have an unemployment rate of just 2.6%.
    Know how they did it?
    Virtually everyone wears a mask.
    No questions asked.
    No juvenile tantrums.
    No moronic conspiracy theories.
    Just proven science and common sense.
    Americans have no idea how stupid we look on the world stage.

  44. There’s many lessons to be learned in this time of struggle.
    One that jumps out to me is how those who yell USA the loudest and wrap themselves in the flag the most are the ones least willing to do anything to fight for and protect their countrymen by wearing a mask to help them. This lack of social concept is bordering on sociopathic.

    The other day I saw a combat medic vet having a hissy fit over being required to wear a mask in the store. He was trained in basic medicine but yet ignorant of the medical way to fight this virus. He fought to defend this country overseas, but yet refuses to fight to protect his countrymen.

  45. Living your life and living your life in a smart manner are two different things. Obviously.

    None of us have experienced a pandemic in our lifetime, so I get that those who can’t comprehend the concept are dismissing it. Competent leadership providing direction is desperately needed. We have none.

    Lets put that to the test. I did a lot of dumb things that could easily have harmed MYSELF all my life, but I never did dumb stuff that could kill others.

  48. The average CV19 hospital stay is around 60,000 bucks. If you can pay that, by all means go have fun.

  49. He’ll probably be the first guy to whine and complain about player safety and threaten to sit out if the NFL doesn’t do anything to protect him forget him taking the responsibility of protecting himself, but he’ll make sure to blame someone else.
