The NFL’s strategy to the pandemic at the moment goes one thing like this: It’s inevitable gamers, coaches, and others will get it; it’s up the groups to maintain it from spreading. That strategy apparently received’t be altering.
The Washington Publish reviews that the league at the moment is giving no critical consideration to the opportunity of implement a home-market bubble, which might entail placing all gamers, coaches, and different important personnel in a lodge for the steadiness of the season.
The Publish additionally reviews that the league isn’t critically contemplating urgent pause on the season, given outbreaks in Tennessee and doable New England.
There’s at the moment no critical consideration of the NFL pausing the season or going to so-called house market bubbles with necessary lodge stays for gamers, coaches and crew staffers after they go away crew services every day, in accordance with a supply.
Regardless, there ought to be critical consideration given to at least one or each of these choices, as a result of the scenario has gotten critical. The Payments-Titans sport set for Sunday at the moment is in grave hazard, and it might probably’t be delayed till Monday night time as a result of the Payments play the Chiefs on Thursday night time. It can also’t be moved to a bye week as a result of the Titans already had a bye.
So, sure, the scenario already has gone off the rails. The prepare merely hasn’t crashed, but. Perhaps when it does, the league will do what must be achieved. Till then, it’ll proceed to play a sport of Russian roulette that it arguably has already misplaced.
