As long as the NFL and NFLPA are in agreement, that’s all that’s necessary to move forward, IMO.
Personally, would be a nice escape from reality to have football, even without fans, but not at the expense of someone’s health and eventual well being.
I also think it’s established that access to healthcare and resources mattered more for quicker treatment than just race. The socio economic status of NFL players and their access to resources should allow for quicker quarantine and treatment, IMO.
I don't think the typical masks we see everyday are suitable for many sports applications except maybe baseball. I'm sure though that someone could come up with a helmet with visor and turtleneck like elastic covering going down to the neck. If they can do that without fogging, it would be great.
Players, and teams for that matter, have the resources to be far more bubble like than the average citizen. The extremes the NBA is going to is an example.
