    Absolutely, when you're at a grocery store wear a mask. That goes for everyone. But the NFL has signed off that every person on the field has tested negative for Covid, or they wouldn't be able to get anywhere near the field. Also an NFL field isn't a public place that anyone can access. So why should people that the NFL has certified don't have covid, surrounded by other people who don't have covid, in a private place have to wear masks? That's not about saving lives, it's about looking like you'e doing something.
    So you're against the rule, not the fact he broke it and got fined,

      Bt they've selectively enforced the rule. Belichick had on a mask that basically covered just his nose, and he wasn't fined. That also doesn't take into account how ridiculous the rule is considering all of the coaches are tested every day. The rule was put in place because the NFL was initially going to scale back testing to just 3 times per week, but just before the season decided they'd just keep doing daily tests. So the rule is ridiculous.

So if the NFL tests them constantly and the NFL has said thy don't have Covid, why have a rule making them wear masks when you are clearly stating they don't have Covid.

        The NFL having this rule is just virtue signalling. However the owners can change rules when they want, with the league randomly fining teams, the owners can quickly get rid of this ridiculous rule.
        The tests aren’t 100% accurate, too many variables, such as they didn’t get the swab far enough in the nose, the amount of virus in the person’s system was too low to register, they’re already on the mend, or the test was taken too early.

        We all have to wear masks, they can wear it too, I don’t feel sorry for them.

          The rule makes zero sense. And the selective enforcement of a rule that doesn't make sense makes it even worse.

            By that rationale every player should also wear a mask. Cause their tests may not be 100% accurate either.

              Totally agree. Heck, I've seen many MLBers wearing them while playing. That seems like an extra step, but good on them.

                Yes, they should be while on the sidelines at least. Unless they’re testing them everyday, every hour, with 100% accurate tests (doesn’t exist).

                  Why just on the sidelines? Players are in closer contact with each other on the field. Maybe players should wear double masks just in case?

                    Lets see how the enforcement part goes. Clearly Fangio was not following the rule.

                      Define many. One per team is not many. And most aren't wearing them in the dugouts anymore. At some point people need to take the leap if faith that daily test (while not 100% perfect) still are a good indication that they don't have covid. Especially since league's are immediately taking steps when there's even an inconclusive test.

                        Neither were Gruden or Payton. So far no fines for them. In fact you could go through every single game and find the coaches not wearing masks at times. And that doesn't even take into account the ridiculous of Reid and his face shield, I guess somehow air, and particles, can't get around the open visor...

                          I am truthfully not sure how many, but I am surprised that there are even some. That's my point. I never expected to see any, so I am impressed actually that they play with a mask. Those players are really taking it seriously.. Not to say the others aren't.

                            I maybe wrong, but I think they are still under review.

                              Whether the rule makes sense or not doesn't give Fangio, or anyone else, the right to break the rule. Not liking an empoyler's rules isn't an excuse for breaking them. He knew the rule. The league office sent memos to every team. While whether the rule itself is a good one can be debated, there's no excuse for not following the rules.

                              And if the NFL is only trying to send a message, that is their right.

                                I really don’t want to get into a mask debate as I feel there’s some hidden political agenda behind this. I’m out.... I knew better than to click on this thread in the first place.
