The income-generating humans are not acting the way we programmed them! Quick, somebody appeal to their better nature--their contracts!"

James Harrison is currently preparing an appeal for his expected fine.

A fine? I mean that's great for whatever charity gets the dough but it is hardly a deterrent. If the NFL were serious about these rules they would hand out suspensions. And make the offending coaches wear dunce caps the next game they coach.

They should escort one of the coaches off the field at half time.  Then maybe they get the message.

Toll booths at the goal lines are next.

"I'm doing my best. You know, I've had the virus. OK. I'm doing my best," Gruden said. "I'm very sensitive about it,

Out of curiosity Jon, if you had a football player on your team who keeps fumbling up and his constant fumbles are costing your team the win and they reply "I'm doing my best, OK... I'm very sensitive about it" your response is "oh okay great thanks!" and you keep him in the game and handing him the ball, right?

Because his fumbles might cost you a single game, your dipshiat inability to wear a f*cking mask might cost lives and the entire NFL season.

Tack on a zero each week and they will care soon enough

Apparently good enough for the NFL's standards:

Gruden is making $100 million over the next 10 years. 100K is nothing. He'll likely take off his mask again and issue the same "apology" to the press.

He took off his mask so he could "communicate" in an empty stadium with pumped-in crowd noise. Nearly every other coach did perfectly well in similar conditions with their masks on, so it's all bull.

Wait, can the people in the stadium hear the crowd noise? I thought it was just for TV audiences,

Well, I appreciate the drama, but you have (for instance) IR players on the sideline who are in street clothes that are not required to wear a mask.  Sure the players get tested every day, but so do the head coaches.  It is pretty silly that to claim that NFL head coaches are somehow more of a risk than non-active players on the sideline.

AliceBToklasLives: Wait, can the people in the stadium hear the crowd noise? I thought it was just for TV audiences,


Yes, they play it in stadium, up to a limit of 70 decibels (IIRC).  Otherwise, how would Eagles players get booed when playing at home?

Does it even matter if they can hear it or not?

If the stadium is empty and it's silent, his "communication" excuse is even more BS. Gruden's voice was loud as a coach and as a commentator. A mask wouldn't dim his voice in the slightest.

True that. I don't think Gruden has an 'indoor voice.'
