It may have sounded good a month ago, but with significant upticks in Texas and Florida the NFL's hope that states would compete with one in other (for fan attendance) is going out the window fast. What governor is going to sign off on this now?

It’s not going to happen. How many times have we seen clusters popping up in bars? Roughly the same as a sports stadium, with drinking, shouting, possibly eating and little social distancing. You get the superdome even at 1/3 capacity and you’re still close enough to people to feel their breath as they yell and scream. With numbers already going up, what are the odds that there will be people who are sick in that crowd? What are they going to do open 6 hours early to do health screenings? Socially distance in the bathrooms?
To say nothing of the fact that by the time you get 80+ players, plus coaches and supporting staff each day of the week with guys who travel all over the US, how do you expect them to stay healthy enough to play? How are you even going to keep 32 teams playing and healthy?
It was a long shot 4 months ago -- as crazy as that sounded to some -- that there would be fans at football games in the fall. Now, in late-June, it looks even less likely. The logistics are just too daunting.

It'll be hard enough just to have games without fans.

This virus is starting to un-snowball almost as fast as it snowballed. I think things will get back to normal a lot faster than many people think.
Texas,California,and Florida disagree

It could turn out bad or good, but that's the way it should be. Our government is supposed to be bottom up. The hierarchy is individuals, families, towns, counties, states, and the Federal government dead last. The NFL is an individual, so they can do as they please, including defer to the people, which I like.

neither of your 2 paragraphs have any basis in reality
both would be great mind you, but neither of anywhere close to factual
