    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.

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

    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?

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

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

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.

    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.

    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.

    It is known that talking loud or yelling aggrevates the sprad of virus, and another factor is that coaches are older and hence more exposed. It makes sense to have rules but it seems bizarre to fine someone 100000$, and more work should be put into how to be practical about the restrictions. US is in a bad situation with Covid-19, but we are talking people that are outside in empty stadiums.

    Yes, except it would need to be proportionate to income, which means the fine for me would be about $100 ��
    "Tis true, although some businesses were fined $1000 and lost licenses.

    I agree. If you have well defined rules, and you explain the penalties and the black and white of the rule, so that it is consistent, then you have no business breaking the rule and not being fined. Having said that, I am sure this has a bit of flex in it, for those who commit, but occasionally move the mask here and there. I am assuming the league is looking for clear violation.

    My take, for what it's worth....these professional sports have far too much riding on virus control. one blip and a team is in jeopardy, maybe two teams or more. And though it is highly unlikely that Fangio's actions will lead to infection issues, it's more about the image, the perception and most important, the reminder of what's at stake.
