Seeing as the western world is heading for a populace demographic nightmare - as many 80 year olds as there are 20 year olds, shrinking populations ie Spain to be cut in half in less than 100 years - a cull of the elderly is sadly required, I include myself in part of that cull. Factor in the masses of unemployment, so far estimates as high as 250 million worldwidedue to covid, then the millions of people who will lose jobs to AI in the next 15 years, football and all sports need to get with the programme.

Seeing as football is played in helmets, it would be easy to play in a full visor on the face mask, combined with stringent testing ( buy those shares in testing manufacturers today) I don't see too much of an issue for the game to be played. The big question mark surrounds the fans. I'm not sure how they can come bacn droves without a vaccine - but how many people will want to take a vaccine that has veen fast tracked?

It's become synonymous that those who've defied science have been wrong. This is an ever evolving health situation unfolding in real time. MLB has shown no one is safe. Player's and essential personnel are getting sick. It's only a matter of time before the other sports start seeing similar events happen. The NFL will not be spared. Hopefully all societies can return to a mostly normal life, which includes all sports, sometime in the not too distant future. Short term we'll be taking our lumps.

According to reports MLB is on the verge of ending the season if they can’t figure out a way to to manage the virus. If baseball, which is a non contact sports can’t figure out a way to stop the virus from spreading as the teams fly from one city to another to play other teams.
It just shows how difficult it is going to be for footbal which is a contact sport to have a season when teams will also be flying to different cities to play.

It appears the NBA by confining their players in a bubble and not allowing family or friends to have contact with the players have so far been able to limit the virus from getting into the bubble. Yet the NFL hasn’t even talked about putting their players in this type bubble. With the NFL players continuing to live at home
and being able to go out in the community, it is just a matter of time before the NFL is facing the same issues that MLB is now facing.

The NHL has done a good job of limiting the spread as well with their bubble. It also helps immensely that they are playing all their games in Canada, a country that actually knows what the **** they’re doing with regards to handling the virus.

As for the nhl , it helps that Canada has 100,000 cases compared to 4.7 mil. As for the covid number, you can’t compare Canada’s population to the US

I'm curious here, if the season is cancelled would the same draft selections be in place from last year? Or would it shift to only your placement pick? Basically would we have 3 first rounders or 1?

Much bigger bubble. NFL bubble would have over 4000 players and would last for 4 months. Not to mention you would need 5 or 6 stadiums in this bubble area and they would need to host multiple games per week.

Not just players. The NFL has large coaching staffs and other personnel. Plus the front office people who will be attending. What people are proposing is not possible. You then have to place multiple teams within a specific distance for games. While providing practice and game facilities. I have not come across an actual solution to these issues

0.05% of healthy adults (< 49 years old) die after being infected with corona.

1.3% of elderly (65+) die after being infected with corona. Of those elderly...approximately 90% of them have serious PRE-existing conditions (e.g. heart, kidney, lung, etc.)

0.4% of ALL ages who are infected with corona end up dying...this is significantly less than the average death rates of the seasonal flu. That is all you need to know.

These statistics came from the CDC a couple months ago. It might be updated. I would encourage anyone to research for themselves...but after many months and many studies...they're generally in very close proximity to these figures in all the studies I've read.

This is all we need to know. Let us resume life as it once was.

The question should be are players at any higher risk of getting covid by playing than by not playing. For example if 5 % of the players get the virus during the season and 5% get it during the off season the risk wouldn't seemed to increased. People seem to just be looking at the bottom line number of how many MLB have gone into the covid protocol. It's possible that some MLB or NFL players might not be at a higher risk of getting the virus than they would be if they opted out and didn't play depending on their lifestyles, locations and the risk level of the people they would deal with on a day to day basis. Playing football with someone who test every other day might not be as risky as going shopping in store where a vast ajority have never been tested.
