    Baseball will shed a lot of light on The NFL. No hub cities. Teams flying to and from. And baseball will be compared to hockey and basketball, as they all start closely together, 2 in hub cities only and 1 in home and away travel.

    We should learn a lot in the next month or so.

    I was thinking about it. Might go the "cautious, conservative" route, in case the season gets ended early.....

    In that case, I'd say we're all screwed.

    Better review our rules.....is there a winner in an unfinished season?? Might be a tiny consolation for football withdrawal syndrome.

    This is sad. My Grandpa died May 1st. My mom and aunts were not allowed to be with him as he died even though they didnt have the virus nor did my Grandpa .

    Also a bit of good news , out of over 4k players , coaches and trainers for the NBA, NHL, MLB and MLS only 2 tested positive. I believe those were from the NHL.

    Sorry , should have been more specific. Not past tests this was just recent testing.

    The NFL wasnt included in that post btw

    NFL just came out a few min ago and stated 95 tested positive.

    The NBA had a positive test inside the bubble last week, and Dwight Howard was warned by the league about not wearing a mask. He promptly went to Instagram to rant on how he doesn't believe in that stuff.

    The NBA had zero cases as of recent tests. That's a really good thing.

    Agreed! Would love to see the country see the pro leagues have success and follow them by wearing masks, social distancing, washing their hands regularly, and quarantine & get tested if you feel sick.

    Link to NFL source for 59 players. The 95 came from all football personnel, not just players.

    https://www.nfl.com/news/nflpa-appro...s-for-covid-19

    Also in the link the NFLPA approved the Broncos Infectious disease emergency response (IDER) plan.

    The below link was given for player as a resource.

    https://nflpa.com/covid-19-updates-information

    It says Denver has the 9th least concentration in NFL markets...look at the link for the details.

    I'm pretty sure the 95 includes team personal too like coaches, trainers and the 59 is for players only.

    If I were in charge I'd strongly have considered starting the season with division rivals playing back to back games. This means neither team comes in contact with any other team for two weeks and the first 6 games all teams are isolated by their division teams. It would also be useful for determining division champs for the playoffs is the season is cut short.

    Yes players were 59 , unless they change it again. It blows my mind that over 4000 that were tested between NBA, MLS, NHL and MLB there was only 2 positives while the NFL had 90+.

    The divisional games front loaded seems like a good idea. I'm surprised they didnt think about it like that.

    Tom Brady has reported to Bucs facility. I just check now and the NFLPA is still reviewing the Bucs plan.
