Understood. I follow the "live in caution but not in fear" principle. But then, I don't have my parents or in-laws living with me.
I see people on both sides of the spectrum, the ultra-careful and the reckless and I feel like I fall somewhere in between. But if it came to my parents, the advice I'd ask them to follow is what you would give me because both of them have Type 2 diabetes.
Just maybe if you were in the very high risk category you might have a different opinion?
Without getting into my medicals I fall into the most at risk category. I also have a 89 year old mother in law living in my house. Put yourself in those shoes and maybe you wouldn't think it is a joking matter?
I don’t think it will be a lot of them opting out. But I could see a few. The nfl is taking a lot of precautions. Players won’t even be able to be in the facility with a cough or sneeze without a couple negative tests. I think we will see positive tests with the initial screening but hopefully players will be smart off the field and after those initial tests there won’t be many. I read the eagles are going to be testing all coaches and quarantining then until they are all tested. They are even testing their family members that live in the house with them.
Sone of the stuff like no jersey swaps is dumb. If those players are all tested and cleared before games they should be able to have jersey swaps. Players are laughing at this silly rule.
The nfl is allowing teams to have 2 fan events with players in the preseason as long as protocols are followed. No fans at training camp.
With revenue sharing its probably good to let fans in some stadiums if local governments say its ok. Even if all can’t. That helps with revenue. If stadium workers and fans wear masks they can have 15 to 20 thousand pretty easily socially distancing.
What will be interesting if there is a vaccine by the end of the year or January maybe playoffs can go back to full stadiums.
