My guess is the season starts in October, training camp in August. This of course is at the earliest. IF they were to cancel the season, my guess would be contracts would be treated as if the players retired. Or in other words, basically the contracts would be paused.
Yeah that game was nuts! I thought for sure it would be us vs you guys for the AFC Title. That would've been tough for the Colts to win at SD. We were 10-0 at home that season counting the playoffs so I didn't mind seeing Tom and BB for once. I was still rooting against them when you guys played them because I always root against them
Beyond that, it's probably pointless to go all in on this season. The draft and everything is a nice diversion, but the idea of any kind of normal football season taking place is pure fantasy, I'm afraid to say. They're digging mass graves in New York, yet the Jets and Giants will be out at training camp in a few months?
Additionally, what will the protocol be when players get sick? The flu spreads through locker rooms every year. Once coronavirus inevitably hits a team's locker room or facility, what happens? Is everyone in isolation? Is that team off the schedule? Until there is a medical breakthrough, I have a hard time seeing it.
