Looks like they are now undergoing a review of the Redskins name. A change seems likely due to the pressure from Fedex, NFL and public at large. They were the Boston Braves before they came to D.C. So maybe just call them the Washington Braves or Washington Warriors if “Braves” is still deemed to be too insensitive. FWIW, the Cleveland Indians are also considering a name change.
I wouldn’t bet too much.
Our regular season starts in September, by that time MLB will have - in theory - been playing for about 5 weeks. Roughly the same as basketball. If those two leagues are forced to shutdown, the NFL won’t wait for trouble to happen. The NFL will quickly join them and shutdown as well.
We will all know more in August.
the virus could be around for many years, maybe forever. they are going to figure out how to play around it and start the season. if it gets bad they will shut it down but there will be games played, id bet on that
Asymptomatic people are leading the spread. This disease doesn’t care what the NFL expects. If players and fans are put in close proximity, there will be spread. A player can test negative in the morning and positive in the evening. The WHO made that statement last month but they also clarified that statement. No one can even red say for sure what asymptomatic really means. You can also be presymptomatic and spread it as well.
