    The mask mandate is probably like game management to Vic....no clue.

    I 100% agree will enforcement of mask wearing. 100k USD is a heck of a penalty though, for anyone, let alone regular earning folk.
    I was watching some NCAA college football yesterday, my first real time seeing it, and aside from looking at the Oline play, I was staggered that mask wearing in the crowd was patchy.
    I hate to see that level of disrespect to others. I guess there will always be some people that are more special than others.
    When I filter everything down, those are the words that resonate with me.

    Every coach should do a bellichek. Clearly that’s acceptable..

    I agree....and my post was aimed at just that, it is unlikely any HC will be fined, because they will obey the rules. Not sure what Andy Reid will be wearing??!! At very least, he'll have a windshield wiper.

    But whatever...the players are wearing helmets most of the time, so pursuant to all known scientific understanding of airborne viral transmission, they should be fine. :thumb:
    I believe their helmets are N95,000 and even work when a player is on the sideline with it off. Amazing stuff.

    And this fine is ridiculous. $10,000 was more than enough.
    Really, isn't $10,000 like a $10.00 jaywalking fine to a millionaire? Send the message loud and clear IMO.

    It's not fair because Vic is sometimes forgetful.....like when he forgot we had time outs to use.

    In fact very few coaches had masks/shields on the entire time. I been working with the mask policy for months. We are essentially only allowed to take masks off at work for drinking and eating...and we are expected to put the mask back on as soon as we are done. If something is going on that requires us to take a mask off beside that (smoking, need fresh air...whatever) we need to leave the work environment.

    Teams should look to what KC does or maybe BB (assuming that is legal) or expect to be fined. Just about every coach in the NFL was communicating without a mask during the weekend.

    Have no problem with the rule...just have a problem it was not enforced to all teams.
    Just like every speeder doesn’t get a ticket, not every mask violation is going to get noticed.

    The fines to the teams are an incentive for the teams to ensure everyone is compliant.
