Roger Goodell is nothing but a puppet for the geriatric owners that remain to control.This is stupid.
We live in a world where high powered machines emit radiation and give a colorful picture of your colon. We have planes that can be flown via remote control. There are surgeons who have literally performed surgery from home through a server and robotic hands.
This is not that. Not even close.
Give me a break. They can't figure out a way to get physicals remotely? Everything they were going to in person, they can do on a video call with a licensed physician who administers the physical live. It's not that hard to figure it out.
doesn't read like the problem is the actual draft. The problem is acquiring data teams feel they need to make intelligent decisions. Thus, "GMs were concerned that there wouldn’t be time for player physicals, psychological tests and other necessary player-vetting procedures."Easy solution.
No one meets in groups. Everyone is remote. The commissioner is by himself announcing picks. Done. No complications. We'll still get Kiper and all the other talking heads in their remote locations. Similar to Around the Horn. I'd be down for that.
If there's guys who are a legitimate threat to have major issues from coronavirus, they probably weren't meant for the NFL. I don't see many healthy 20-24 year olds dying from this thing, and the ones who have health conditions that make them susceptible are probably not NFL draft candidates.Plus if this virus is going to be as wide spread and catastophic as expected there very well could be some players selected in April that never play a down in the NFL. From a GM standpoint why not just wait until we have a better idea of who survives this and who is still healthy to play football. Unfortunately it's going to take a few big name deaths in the music, acting or athletic industries before the seriousness of what's going on really sinks in around the country. If and when that happens everything will be put on the back burner.
