Starting to think NFL season not feasible

We are already back in the 30k range in case numbers, that's only going to continue going up. With the fact that football season coincides with flu season, it's going to be a logistical nightmare. I think college football is in more doubt than the NFL, but the NFL is definitely in jeopardy.

Re: Starting to think NFL season not feasible

I'm a little worried myself. They're playing soccer in Europe without fans, but don't know that would work for the NFL. Lot more people on the sidelines. Lot more players to get tested and keep separated.

Re: Starting to think NFL season not feasible

I don't personally care if there is an NFL season or not, anymore, but to whom it still concerns, I wouldn't pay attention to the fake case numbers. Because they are just that... Fake. Not every single case, of course, but it is greatly exaggerated.

The NFL won't miss out on their money. Unless, of course, someone says football is racist. In which case, the league would fold immediately and forever.

I don't see any safe way to keep the players safe. If just one player or coach tests positive the entire team would be quarantined. How in the hell will that work?

There isnít going to be a season. I accepted it long ago in order to avoid the disappointment.

Re: Starting to think NFL season not feasible

I think the season will be fine. Just may be less fans in attendance than what we're used to seeing and less $$$ coming in and the NFL will have to come to terms with that. I try to tune out the MSM's fear mongering regarding covid. Honestly I'm more worried about the economy/jobs/housing situation than a second wave.

Re: Starting to think NFL season not feasible

If 1 or 2 players catch it, they will shut it down. And if 1 or 2 get it, its likely several more will too.

There will be no season in my opinion, which is fine if they were gonna start disrespecting my flag and anthem with their political nonsense.

Seems like I lose either way.

Foreverfan would say something like this.

Prepare expectations for the worst, and be grateful when things turn out better.

Re: Starting to think NFL season not feasible

I'm hopeful. Hopeful a regular school year. Regular football season.
I am hoping for herd immunity.
If a player or coach catches it, carry on. It is not going to stop or help or heal .
No, numbers or cases are not exaggerated. Be thankful it is not you and yours. Everyone, just stay positive and hang in there.
This too shall pass.

They are planning on players (and all other personnel) and their immediate families to stay pretty much in lockdown for the season. Players and all other personnel will be tested daily. And any individual that does test positive is to be isolated, monitored and treated (if needed) until deemed clear and can then return.

There is not going to be any mass quarantining. Rosters and practice squads will be increased to handle temporary loss of individual players.

There is also a good possibility that much of the league will already have had the virus by the beginning of the season and shouldn't be an issue come season. So far all of the reported player cases have been either asymptomatic or extremely mild.

It is still almost three months from the beginning of the season. I have little doubt the season will take place and can't wait.
