    Is Anyone Nervous The Season Will Be Cancelled?


    Let's say that Josh Allen tests positive and has to social distance for 2 weeks. That means no football for him, but also chances are he has been in close contact with Barkley, Fromm and Webb. What do they do here? Do they keep 1 QB permanently away from the other QBs? What if he gets injured or gets covid?

    One thing we know for sure is that players and coaches will get this during the season. It's not a question of if they get it, we know it's going to happen. I for one am very nervous that the season will be postponed or cancelled. If we were trotting out Dick Jauron and Fitz I probably wouldn't care. But I realllllly care this year.

    I think we should all expect, at a bare minimum, a very disruptive 2020 NFL season.

    It most certainly will be postponed a month or two.

    Several 'Bama football players tested positive.

    More and more of that is going to happen.

    There is not going to be any organized football this year. Possibly won't happen until there's a vaccine and that may never happen.

    If the other leagues can start up in July the NFL can start up in September.

    So you think the NFL may be gone forever? That's a little dramatic.

    I think they're going to find a way. Too much money at stake. Honestly, it's better for everyone to have Cole Beasley throwing passes than to cancel it.

    Everyone has to get used to the idea that the playing field will not be even this year. There will be teams with sick or quarantined stars, teams that have to endure crappy travel situations, teams with financial challenges that impact their ability to do what they would otherwise do to field the best possible team, and maybe even state and local requirements that disadvantage specific teams and which the league is unable or opts not to address.

    None of that is ideal, but there's no such thing as ideal in 2020.
    Wake up, brush your teeth, and get ready for a day of hating the Dolphins. Or the Pats? How to choose?

    All great points about the players health as well as state and local restrictions having an effect.

    Which means it's all up for grabs at this point.

    Just hope we get the chance to find out.

    Everyone needs to step away from lockdown and social media and move on. Everyone protesting and destroying cities, no downtown, no sports. These rich athletes will never see this kind of money again.
    Turn off social media. Find life.

    They're not even going to make it to the first game IMO. Once someone tests positive everyone in contact with that person will need to be quarantined for 14 days. There are going to be multiple teams in this situation and then you have multiple cancelled games. It will be cyclical and there will be no way to make up all those games. Has there been a vaccine developed for that pesky virus called Aids? Certainly Coronavirus is less lethal but you get the point, there may not be a vaccine for either in our lifetime. Organized sports are in trouble.

    1,000ís of people protesting and rioting. Totally fine. NFL football is dangerous.

    So dumb. Letís completely open up the country already. Those who are scared of getting sick stay home.

    Are we unintentionally trying herd immunity with the protesting?

    I think we are and we should know how bad it is pretty soon.



    Those that are scared should just stay safe and stay home.



    Let's play some football.

    Re: Is Anyone Nervous The Season Will Be Cancelled?

    Life is sort of a weird malaise without sports.

    I didn't think sports were all that important to me until Covid-19 hit.

    Now I'm like, Jesus, I live for the 3 nights a week of the Sabres, and one night a week of the Bills, and one night a week of boxing. Sports keep your week moving along.

    However I still want people to take the pandemic seriously.

    For me, my mom is a disabled vet (and only in her 50s) and her doctor told her that Covid-19 would be "a death sentence." So I want her comfortably insulated from everything that's happening.

    .
    No. No ****ing way is that the case.

    Also, it's unclear whether or not you can actually catch COVID-19 more than once.

    13 Sailors On The USS Theodore Roosevelt Have Tested Positive For Covid-19 A Second Time...

    Thirteen sailors aboard the virus-stricken USS Theodore Roosevelt have tested positive for the coronavirus a second time, presenting another setback for the Navy, which has been criticized for its handling of the outbreak as it tries to prepare the aircraft carrier to return to normal operations.

    In total, 13 crew members who had previously contracted COVID-19 appear to have tested positive again this week after returning to work on the vessel, Politico reported Saturday.

    Before getting back on the ship, each crew member quarantined for two weeks and tested negative twice, with the tests separated by at least a day or two.

    What happens when the Coronavirus goes around an NBA lockeroom? Will they stop playing all games (again)?

    If that happens, other leagues won't be starting this fall, including football.

    If the NFL goes away, it won’t be because of corona. It will be because of CTE. between lawsuits, punitive damages if they find out the league hid data, parents not wanting their kids to play, safety rules that make the game boring, and players choosing to retire the first time they get their bell rung, I think it’s a much bigger threat.

    That being said, all of those things are long term issues and if CTE ends the NFL, it won’t be anytime soon.

    They must have a plan for that because certainly someone's going to catch it.

    I'd like to know what it was before believing there will be a season.

    Re: Is Anyone Nervous The Season Will Be Cancelled?

    You know the concept that if you have corona and are asymptomatic that you will be confined because you're contagious is like testing someone for the common cold or flu and telling them they need to stay home. With this theory no one would even have sex again for Christs sake. You can't shut down 2, 6, 12, 24 months because someone tests positive for something. Does everyone realize they can do this every Jan?

    I totally agree. Let's concentrate on the places and people that are really at risk, instead of locking everyone and everything down. Let's have the NFL and other leagues play, with people in the stands. If some people don't want to go, fine. Set the rest of us free.
    Should have known, way back in 1960 when we drafted Richie Lucas Number 1, that this would be a long, hard ride. But who could have known it would be THIS bad?

    Basketball is playing soon. There is no reason football can’t start in September.
