Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

Recommended Posts

Based on the proud American in the previous post, I can easily see the NFL season ending up cancelled, and we get screwed out of the most exciting and anticipated season since we drafted Palmer.

OK, I went back and re-read my woke antifa SJW handbook, and I can’t find the part requiring S&M and bondage. Not that I have any problems with that, but I’m going to need a list of approved sustainable toy manufacturers and a course on acceptable power dynamics vis a vis race, gender and income level. Also is this going to be part of the next round of public marches because if so I need to lose some weight fast.

She’s good.  Her political statement consisted of ten sentences that all began with “I”, then she rang a bell and destroyed “God Bless America.”  Game, set, match.

Speaking of losing weight, my primary care recently pointed out my weight gain over the past handful of years.
I told her after a career in the Army, I stopped exercising and bought a house at the corner of "Fat and Happy".
She laughed for a minute and plainly told me she thinks I need to move. WTF ?!?!

Ivy League cancelled its season today. First Division 1 circuit to throw in the towel.

I had forgotten that it kept track of those things.  Early on in this board's history, we use to make a pretty big deal of those milestones.
Fast forward 16 years and I had completely forgotten about it.  Had I been thinking, I would have had something more positive to say.
Makes me feel old thinking about being in my 30's and single when I started posting here.  Now 50, married, 2 kids and retired from the Army, while working on another career.

I love this board !!!  Thanks Hoosier...

NASCAR has been back.   Horse Racing is back and in some markets never left (now they are entertaining allowing fans).   MLS just returned last nigh.   MLB, NHL, and NBA are getting ready to return.

College Sports due to different leadership in each conference and institutions AND the athletes are supposed to be students which may or may not be on campus.  Different dynamic vs. professional sports.   Power 5 College football and basketball brush closely with professional sports.

Again, hoping and praying for the football season to go off, even with little to no fans.

However, the amount of contact and closeness of the players is vastly different than the other sports and their participants.
Looking at the current outbreaks among college programs like Ohio State and North Carolina are more of what I would expect at the pro level.
I just don't see how they stop the spread of the virus in those close quarters and I fear the impact would be massive for a team that is forced to quarantine players that test positive.

Could you imagine a miracle season where we make it to the Super Bowl and Burrow is leading the charge, only to test positive the night before the game ??
Finley would then be the starter and there goes most any chance of winning that game.

Worst case scenario ??  Sure, but completely feasible.

Ohio State suspended all voluntary workouts yesterday.  BTW the workouts aren’t actually voluntary, they’re just called that.  Must have been too many positive tests.

A Michigan podcaster who is well-connected said 3 or 4 schools in the big ten don’t want to play.  Michigan is considering a home and home series with 3 or 4 big ten teams, including Ohio State.

Makes you wonder if they will grant players, who might have needed this season, another year of eligibility?  Subsequently I wonder about the impact to the NFL draft. For teams in rebuild mode, that scenario would be problematic.

No question that the draft next year is going to be utterly effed up by all this. IMHO it’s an open question whether it happens at all.

Gene Smith, AD at OSU says he is no longer cautiously optimistic there will be college sports this fall.  The Big Ten says it is prepared to both play sports and also prepared not to play sports.  
 

As a society, we again find ourselves in a tough spot with this virus.  So again we must seek the wisdom and guidance of the essential oil consultants and 60 pound overweight guys with AR-15s strapped to their chests who all descended on the statehouses a couple months ago and demanded the states “reopen.”

Buster Posey said he’s out for the year.  Could turn MLB into a freaky year if players of that caliber are bailing.  If the Tigers had any good players I’d wish for them to all bail.

Seriously, rosters could be really different than expected, the tribe could actually win something.

The Bengals have announced No Tailgating before or after games this year.
