It’s one comment in one thread on one bills message board.  Stop thinking it’s more than it is.  
 

yes.  I hope there’s a season.  I’m praying that they can somehow make this happen.  Seeing that the Marlins now have 18 positive tests (among other things), in a non contact sport makes me think that this is very unlikely to work.  
 

sorry I’m not as positive as you and others.  Use the ignore function if I’m draining your soul 

 

How about instead of randomly posting in threads that you don't think there will be a season, you just say one of those prayers, silently.

These guys should have plenty of money to last a lifetime if they're saving properly.

This ^^^ and how the F hard is it to live well on $150,000.00 dollars for one year? No pity what so ever. What player Is not earning in the top fifteen  percent in the whole damn country? If these guys are pissing away their money, that’s on them.  
 

Go Bills!!!

I am starting to see a Bit of trend with the early list..

 

Alot of BIG GUYs on the list (12 OL/DL) and Obesity is a area to look out for with COVID.

I would not be surprised to Patrick Peterson opting out. He has type 2 diabetes and has a lot of money

How do you go from $4.5M fully guaranteed to $150K?  That's got to be difficult.  I just don't see this season going more than one game.  All it will take is one team to get it bad.  Then the season is in shambles.    

 

It might go more than one game, but it's a trainwreck waiting to happen for sure. And ofc there will be the superstar player(s) who tears an ACL playing in what will amount to a meaningless game during a meaningless season. Hopefully Allen doesn't suffer an Alex Smith type injury because a scrub player is blocking for him on account of COVID.

This is not the greatest news.  That's a contract I wouldn't want pushed out another year.

There are multiple comments like this on every thread on this message board. And it's insufferable.

If comments like this are “insufferable”, I pray for you.  You need to be stronger or you’ll be dead soon.

Wouldn’t want my comment to kill anyone’s hopes and dreams.

 

This is a message board btw.  A place where people state how they feel about certain subjects.  I’m sorry that my post hurts you so much.  Would you go so far as saying that negative posts like mine are “insufferable”?

enough about what comments are or are not insufferable, or who is insufferable in turn.  

 

What would be insufferable is Clowney going to the Pats*. Lets get him!!

Or them getting Trevor Lawrence next year because their guys opted out and they use it as an excuse to tank. The next Pat's loophole.

They're not tanking with Cam Newton.   Maybe he's done and they end up rolling with Stidham anyway, but I highly doubt they'll be bad enough to be in contention to get Trevor.

I suspect there will be a 2 game season.  Or you can ignore reality and just keep thinking of some giant fairy tale.  I mean that is the new American dream.

This actually sucks, because it makes it tougher to move him next year, which was the likely plan.

 

Yep. I don't think we will miss him massively from a performance perspective. He has been no better than average here. But moving that big hit down the road a year was not the plan when they restructured him. Obviously nobody could have predicted Covid but still.... it hurts.

With the salary cap most likely going down next year I am not sure this is a good idea.  What $ do you think is viable for contribution vs cost?

Yeah I’m definitely “that guy” when it comes to thinking that a non bubble sport in America will finish its season.  I’m trying to stay optimistic that the NBA and it’s bubble will show that it can be done.  I’m not optimistic that the NFL has the slightest chance of completing its season unless they go to a bubble themselves....which is extremely unlikely at this point.

Leadership at the top is terrible in baseball and fb (Manfred and Goodell). They seem to have blinders on-- just plow ahead and somehow it will all work out.

It was the NFLPA that refused the bubble idea, not Goodell.

Beginning to look like this could be a lost season, delayed start-early end, etc.  Either way, we are a strong young and upcoming team and the timing just royally sucks.  The Pats will get a year off to transition from Brady while we stand idle.  😐
