    The coaches go through the exact same testing protocols the players do, if they have a positive test, they won't be out there. So if following those protocols the players don't need to wear masks, why do the coaches have to? The rule is nothing more than the NFL trying to look like they're doing something, while not actually doing something that makes sense.

    There were three coaches/teams fined, I expect a quick joint appeal, because they can show plenty of video of other coaches that weren't fined but weren't wearing masks. Belichick was wearing a mask that basically covered his nose, but somehow that was good enough?
    But if the league makes a rule, nothing to be surprised about if fined.

    Yes, except it would need to be proportionate to income, which means the fine for me would be about $100 😂

US is in a bad situation with Covid-19, but we are talking people that are outside in empty stadiums.
    I have a SUPER easy way to not get fined.....wear a face shield or a mask. Although face shields are effectively useless.

    No idea why he is singled out

    Do give BB credit. His mask does not cover his mouth. Seems to be designed to leave his mouth open for communication....but it is designed in a way to look like he is always wearing a mask.
    Wait a minute you mean to say BB found another loophole? LOL

    I work in an office setting where I must wear a mask nearly all day. I can tell you that I wear a mask and talk on the phone A LOT. There is not a single person who cannot hear me. If the mic is by his mouth he is fine. On top of that he and others have the added benefit of the other teams not being able to see his lips move.

    Ugh these coaches, we all have to wear it, you can wear it too

    I believe they're all part of the same protocol, each being tested every single day.

    Here's what I found on testing:

    NFL COVID-19 testing: What happens when a player tests positive?
    Daily COVID-19 testing has been in place since the start of NFL training camps for people in two groups — Tier 1 ("players and essential football personnel whose job function requires direct access to players for more than 10 minutes at a time on a regular basis") and Tier 2 ("other essential personnel who may need to be in close proximity to players and other Tier 1 individuals and who may need to access restricted areas periodically").
    The daily COVID-19 testing for those two groups will continue into the regular season, except on game days, according to ESPN. Other team employees are tested weekly.
