Major Changes to NFL COVID-19 Protocol - Could cost players games

Recommended Posts

Basically could decimate teams if a positive test is found after Tuesday. We could be seeing a lot more MNF double headers

Teams surely have got to stop letting players talk to each other at the end of the game, right?  Guess it depends on how they define “high risk” close contact.  Like would the Mahomes/Gilmore convo count?

But then they get trolled on social media for being a cry baby and not shaking hands, like Brady. 🙄

i don't understand how this was even allowed in the first place. it seems like an extremely easy thing to eliminate, and having some evidence now that the short burst of nfl plays often doesn't end up resulting in sufficient exposure to the virus, you have to think it's one of the higher-risk parts of the game.

Well I guess they are at least making an attempt to account for the incubation period of the virus. They would probably be best admitting that they are going to likely need to extend the season by a few weeks.

I feel like this is exactly what the NFL wants though - to absolutely dominate ratings on Monday's.

Yep that baffled me since day 1 as well.

If they want to see their friends on the other team, go mask up then....

Better yet, just get rid of it. Nobody crosses center field at the end of the game.

ESPN licking their chops for 7 hours of football on a Monday night in the fall/winter....

I wonder how long before they allocate games to the other networks? Like if the original game was a CBS game, CBS should get it if they want.

Fortunately B-Positive airs on Thursday nights so I won't miss out if CBS does have to change over to a Monday night game.

Considering coaches can't have their masks off at all and them not allowing jersey swaps, I was surprised to see them allowing that.

Yeah that's why he won't shake hands.
