Players to be fined if violating safety protocols?

Recommended Posts

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29402477/nfl-players-fined-breaking-coronavirus-related-protocols-source-says

 

Couple key excerpts:

 

One source told ESPN that players on the call were told that they could be fined for conduct detrimental if they are found to have engaged in "reckless" behavior away from the team facility, such as eating out in restaurants and using rideshare services. 

 

 

The call began, sources told ESPN, with updates from Mayer on the virus in general. They were told, among other things, that testing can decrease transmission but that the virus is very serious and should be taken seriously, that African American males are more susceptible to it, that it is possible to get it a second time even if you've already had it and that false negative test results are enough of an issue that players who test positive would be required to test negative twice before they are allowed to return.

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.
