So far in this sportsless landscape (golf? NASCAR? zzzzzzzzzzzzz), the NFL has been waiting on the sidelines hoping for things to calm down while baseball and basketball deal with the ramifications of sheltering during games, and all the logistical nightmares that go with it. Actually baseball is fighting over money, but that’s beside the point. Stupid fuck idiots, the lot of’em.
Thing is, with restrictions being mildly lifted, Ezekiel Elliott, and ‘several cowboys and Texans’ per a CBS report have tested positive for the Coronavirus. Elliott himself is asymptomatic and doing fine. None of the players were at their facilities, and the teams know and follow the protocols, but therein lies the rub. Open this stuff too early and the feared second wave hits. Baseball and basketball with most certainly have to deal with this contingency where they would have to shut their games down a second time.
Football is waiting against all hope that there is some kind of hope that the season will not have to be shortened, pushed back, or God forbid, cancelled. Seeing as this just took hold after the (FUCK) Super Bowl, we’ll have to see if they can dodge that bullet.
