NFL to give players option to opt out for 2020

Recommended Posts

“After several weeks of negotiations between the NFL and NFLPA, it appears the two sides have come to an agreement on the idea of letting players opt out. According to NFL.com, the league and the union intend to give the players the option to sit out, which is potentially huge because it means that any player on any team could choose to skip the 2020 season without facing any sort of penalty.”

“Under the plan developed by the NFL and NFLPA, there really wouldn't be any strict guidelines with the opt-out. Any player who has a pre-existing condition would be allowed to sit out. Players who have family members with pre-existing conditions would be allowed to sit out. Also, any player who has any concerns about playing during a pandemic would also be allowed to sit out, which would open the door for pretty much any player to sit out the season.”

Watered down football? Asterisk besides Super Bowl winner?

 

Just cancel the damn season already and let me mourn in peace.

Do you risk getting corona and get paid?  Some people work minimum wage jobs and risk getting corona.

So basically, the team with the least number of elite players who sit wins?

Some teams could be xfl level while others dominate.

The waiver these guys are gonna have to sign to play is gonna be 50% hilarious and 100% terrifying when someone leaks it out.

What a mess. I wish I could opt-out of the rest of 2020. Another step closer to no season.

Dominoes.

Ivy League cancels sports until 2021. The Big 10 switching to "conference-only" games this season. We'll see how well MLS and MLB fair soon, which should spell how the NBA and NFL handle things.

So, if the entire team sits out do we get the 1st pick next year?

At this point, cancel the Fall and push the season to the Spring in the hopes of a "real" season. Have some QB challenges/skill challenges during the Fall to give us something and still have something to throw at TV networks. 

Going to have to get somewhat creative to save the cap from crashing if a lot of players take advantage of this and opt out.  Let's get weird...no draft, let rookies sing as FAs after an April/May Super Bowl.  Summer free agency.  Back to a normal start time next year with one to no preseason games to give extra rest time.
