I see no reason the NFL won't be playing. It'll be to empty stadiums with piped in noise, but testing before each game will be an easy thing to do by the fall. The risk to people under 40 is nearly nil as well. The key will be having protocols in place if someone does test positive in order to quarantine them and keep them from endangering demographics that are at risk. That shouldn't be hard to manage.

The NFL should really look toward the Atlanta Falcons for this technology. They are really on the cutting edge.

Thanks, I'll be here all week. Tip your waitress.

The under 40 quote, is a bit short. Under 40 folks can catch the virus just as easy, but their full recovery is much higher, So football players like the Brees’ and Brady’s, are at a slightly higher risk of having a bad result from contracting the virus. But how do you mitigate the potential for the asymptomatic players? They can pass it on, without showing any signs. Every player would need to be fully tested, every week at least! I do not think there is a sure way, to ensure there would not be a sudden outbreak in any given team sport! Tennis and golf should be able to resume more quickly.

We already have millions who have the SARS CoV-2 antigen, and by the time football starts, there will be many times more. As long as we protect the at-risk people until a vaccine comes along, play ball. I think that's what most of the medical community wants anyway. Doctors are hardly at all concerned with young people, and that would include all football players. Except Pappaw Brees, he gets the mask.

Testing before each game is exactly what I said.

They are not concerned about public safety or sports, its about the election.
