The NFL had no offseason workouts in 2020, but plenty of players have worked out together on their own. The NFL Players Association officially has asked them to stop.



“Please be advised that it is our consensus medical opinion that in light of the increase in COVID-19 cases in certain states that no players should be engaged in practicing together in private workouts,” Dr. Thom Mayer, the NFLPA medical director, said in an email to all players, a copy of which PFT has obtained....

Yeah, a lot of players train in Florida, AZ, CA, TX...it's probably best to exercise caution.

I’m starting to come to the awful realization that an NFL season will almost be impossible to pull off. Thank you China for ruining that for us as well...

No, I think most players are just going to stay isolated during the season and accept the risks. They're not a high-risk demographic, anyway. Crowdless games seems like the inevitable scenario.

A lot of coaches are high risk.

Yeah, that's true. But I think they handle it the same way as everyone else who's going back to work. Wear PPE and keep their distance.

New Zealand

 

South Korea KBO Baseball

 

 

 

Germany Bundesliga

 

 

Now what might differ between those countries and ours?

The warnings were there in early Jan. It went downhill from there, with gross mismanagement, which continues to unfold...

1/4 of Clemson's football team just tested positive.  

The chance of a full season of football in 2020 is almost zero at this point.

That's a shame because UB was set to have a great year. They were scheduled to play at Ohio State.

Centralized power and strong borders? Like, NZ is a couple islands and South Korea has one border with a country they’re technically at war with. Not to mention the differences between East Asian societies and their view of government vs. western ideals. 
 

Meanwhile Germany is spiking in cases, not huge spikes but not surprising given they’ve been at least semi open since May. 
 

And of course, their combined populations are less than half that of the USA.

Yea it sucks. There’s too many variables and the news will be pumping Covid through most of the fall and put pressure on the NFL to shut things down

Was just thinking the same thing.   The curve is different all over the country and we really have no idea when/if it will get better or worse.   Bummer.

 

Oh well....only 307 days till the draft.   http://draftcountdown.com/

Yes, the damn news reporting what's going on in the world. They're to blame! Them and testing. Stop testing and reporting on Covid. That would fix everything! Who's with me?

This is the bills fault. They are cursed. They could very well make the super bowl this year and there’s not going to be a season. That’s what they get for trying to be good lol
