    Robbie Alomar - - RIP

    Re: Robbie Alomar - - RIP

    Let me start with saying I know virtually nothing about HIV/Aids except how bad it is and to never ever get it. That said while Aids is pretty terminal It has been 2-3 years since he was diagnosed, by now if he is still alive I imagine he has it under control with the triple cocktail of drugs and is healthier.

    That said i was unaware that Alomar had this disease and it sucks because being a die hard Indians fan, he was my favorite player growing up. I wish he and his family (and his ex-girlfriend) well. Good luck Alomar.

    Wish him well? Are you serious? The man had HIV/AIDS knew it and gave it to someone...favorite player my *** why not just push her infront of a bus, if she's quick maybe the bus misses her..just about the same thing.

    He is accused of this yes, nobody but him and her know if it's true...

    There have been rumors inside about Robbie being gay/bi for YEARS...

    Yeah...right, I'm sure the convo went something like this.

    RA:Hey honey, I have AIDS is it cool if we have unprotected sex?
    ExGF: Sure why not the odds are pretty low I'll get it right?

    That's a completely ignorant thing to say.

    You don't get AIDS through spit.

    From the Red Cross website:
    AIDS (a result of HIV infection) is caused by a virus (HIV). There are no known cases of saliva by itself spreading HIV (the virus that causes AIDS). However, because there could be a risk of blood contact during prolonged open-mouth kissing, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends against doing this with a partner who has HIV.
    LINK

    So unless Robbie and that ump did a lot more than what the cameras caught, there is no reason for the ump to get tested.

    If he spat in your face you wouldnt get tested? There always a first case.

    No. I can honestly say that I wouldn't.

    It's misleading information like that which causes a lot of the stigma towards people with HIV and needs to be debunked whenever possible.
