Should the NFL be worried about all the COVID-19 outbreaks in baseball?

Update:

who's kneeling "TO disrespect the flag"? Find me someone who expressly said they did that for that purpose.

    Absolutely, 2020 is NOT the year to have major league sports.

    No, if they tested the same number of people for the flu they'd get the same results.

    They should be.

    I honestly cannot see how they can have a season. With social distancing and face coverings. Football is a brutal hard hitting contact sport. There is tackling and blocking. It is the most physical game of the top 4.

    Yes, they should with the number of players involved, the contact and the travel. They're using a similar model to baseball for playing the games but have more physical contact between players.

    Yes and no.  The NFL should be studying in detail what other sports are doing and trying to find what works and what doesn't.  The NFL faces a much bigger challenge than MLB or NHL or NBA because they have more people involved in each game and those people are in closer contact.  But what we're seeing in the other sports is that transmission isn't really happening on the field of play.  So that's promising.  But that may not be so for the NFL.

    The NFL does have the advantage though of getting to see what the other sports did because they start later.  Also, there is a fair chance that a vaccine could arrive as early as November.

    The players are young athletes. Their chance of dying is virtually zero.

    Of course.They should be looking into what baseball is doing wrong and hopefully do a better job

    Yes, but they need to be more worried about the dim-witted idiots kneeling to disrespect the flag.  A majority of Americans are enraged when they see this.

    They should, but probably are not.
