Then thousands of players and employees are going to go without a game check good luck with that.

I think there's enough leeway to make an exception and pay those who lose a game due to this.

It's not like the team is losing revenue specifically for not playing this game. There are no ticket sales, no concessions, and the ad revenue/TV revenue is already paid for.

Just pay them for lost hours.

NFL should put the season on pause...

The NBA did it because they were more organized and it was way easier to manage . I’d said it before but the NFL was getting lucky and were skating on thin Ice. Also the NFLPA is weak compared to NBAPA.

I agree but do you really think the NFL will do that. They’ve been getting lucky and now things are starting to hit the fan.

Agree - I've mentioned how callous the NFL has been to this point, so there's no reason to think they'll suddenly change that path.

I think the NFL should pause for like 2 weeks and maybe have teams stay in their local Hotels/training camp sites. they could only leave to play the games. The setup will be similar to Training camp where their were almost no positive tests for a month. I would bring back the option to opt out for the players and coaches who don't want to do that for a month and a half.
