I still don't know how the NFL thinks they can play

I also believe that come hell or high water, the NFL will try and play.

GOOD. Blow off some steam & take a year off. The kids are going to need to retain their eligibility, however. You should just pay them since most seniors will graduate.

Michigan was going to get blown out by OSU again. At least they have an excuse this year.

/Yeah I went there

FTFA if the NFL does one week they have to pay 100% of guaranteed salaries for the year.  That's a gamble they won't take if they don't know they can do the whole season.

More than ever because of the money involved, they're going to do whatever they possibly can to get in 10 football games between now and next September. That's what it's come to."

I hate these f*cking people.

Kent State had a better chance of beating Alabama than CFB does at having a full season.

No one should be playing college or pro team sports of any kind this year. The only sports that can go on are individual non-team sports like tennis or golf with either no fans at all or fans that have to be wearing masks and abide by strict social-distancing protocols.

Face it. Overall when it comes to about 90% of team sports - college or pro - this year is over. If we have any hope of seeing any team sports in 2021, then we need to embrace the simple fact that 2020 is a wash. And we need to shut everything down (again), wear masks where ever there is the slightest change of being within six-feet of anyone and get rid of this farking virus this year or else we can kiss 2021 goodbye as well.

I'm a season-ticket holder, and I don't know how you play football, much less have anybody in the seats. Hopefully we'll be back in 2021. Fingers crossed for basketball, maybe after the new year.

If the podunk chucklefarks wanted their pwecious college football, they should have worn their masks in April and May. Now? Too late to save this season, bubba.

The meatheads are going to get in trouble this fall. With no workout, practice and game prep discipline, we may see a few more jail time news stories soon.

Maybe you should drive: As someone who generally lives and dies by sports, I'm surprised at just how little I care this year.  March drove me nuts because I'm used to that being the lead in to baseball, which is what I care about all too much.  By April I realized things were going to be off a while.  By May I realized that 2020 sports were not going to happen.

I usually do 3 intricate rotiserrie baseball leagues and 30-40 fantasy football leagues every year.  I just don't give a shiat this year.  My baseball leagues (which are perennial leagues with the same guys year in and out) are trying to do simple draft leagues for the year, but I can't get into it because I doubt the shortened season will happen.  And I haven't done a single football draft for the same reason.

I guess some good comes out of shiatty situations like this.  I'm learning to live without sports, which I never thought I could do....


As someone who gave up on most sports (postseason games may be the most I'd watch) I'll just say I hope more people in this country realize how unimportant they are.

It is being done successfully in other countries with empty stadiums, extensive testing and players/staff taking the pandemic seriously.

So all it relies on is Americans not being idiots.

I just saw a tweet by a college football reporter calling this article out for not having a single named source willing to say this out loud.

/See, I can do it too
//Too lazy to go look the tweeter
