Why not just reschedule it for Thursday so it replaces the Ravens game that got bumped to make way for this game? Fox already bumped their Thursday night game due to all the shenanigans

Just make the Ravens forfeit. It's what they deserve and there's no reason to risk them infecting another team that might win something.

Why do they keep moving this game but they refused to do it to help the broncos?

The Broncos were screwed because they violated protocols, not because they had positive tests. The Ravens keep getting positive tests.

1-3 million plus fine for the Ravens.

Snatch all but the last few rounds of draft picks.

Declare this game a forfeit.

Send a goddamn message already.

Ravens also violated protocols (one coach hid symptoms and didn't follow mask and contact tracing policies).

Has to do with being able to field a full team.  Broncos were able to do that, though they had no QB's.  As long as they have 53 players, I believe the game goes on.  The Ravens don't.

Or so I've been told.

So did the Broncos, and they're going to be punished/fined.  Their backup QB's didn't wear masks when necessary.

Should have just played the game on time to fark the Ravens; but I agree on the fine (but bigger) and the draft choices.  Want them to play the game because the What the F..ks play the Steelers on Sunday and need the Steelers to be slowed down and sore (probably won't make a difference).

Can't stand Rapeburger.

Either this or extend the season and put some games in a new week, something.  Nothing about this doesn't suck but public health > football, and I farking LOVE football.

Only four players were affected on the Broncos. It just so happened that three of them were QBs that didn't abide by the mask policy.

I'm sure the Steelers will love not getting paid if that happens.

And now the Steelers vs WFT game from this coming Sunday is being moved to Monday.
 
2020-11-30 5:49:04 PM  
Wondering if this move to Wednesday indicates that the NFL may be thinking about shutting down for a couple of weeks and pushing the season back.

A Wednesday in December of 2024.

For punishment, move the Ravens back to Cleveland, move the Browns out to Cleveland.

Ravens violated protocols too. A coach going maskless and not wearing his trackers is what kicked off this whole mess. It all comes down to ratings. Steelers-Ravens is a game with playoff implications and featuring a major rivalry. Broncos are not in playoff contention and have no rivalry with the Saints.
 
2020-11-30 6:01:18 PM  
Someone was trying to convince me that the league has done a great job because there haven't been any cancelled games.

But when the league position is that nothing will make them cancel a game, it's a bit hard to take that seriously
 
2020-11-30 6:01:30 PM  
I just wrote in another thread that it's sadly hilarious at this point, because I totally expect more staff and/or players to test positive. How many times will they bump this game a day or two, the NFL is making foolish choices.
smh

Apparently the delay is because the Ravens threatened to strike because the Ravens players do not want to play until there have been two days in a row without positive tests. At this rate, it would be simpler to forfeit.

Four more players tested positive today.  It's f*cking ludicrous at this point.

And I forgot to mention, f*ck this "the strength and fitness coach has been disciplined."  Nah, for this level of absurd clusterf*ck, he should be fired and outed.

Wow if they are still getting that many positives, I wouldn't bet on that game happening this week, let alone on Wednesday. This is a case where the hammer should fall down hard. This was a fark-up by the Ravens organization not following Covid protocols, endangering everyone's health. The coach responsible should be fired and banned from working in the NFL.

Strike, then.  Wildcat strike is probably illegal.  They can forfeit any time now.

They came down on the Saints like a ton of bricks for a far less egregious violation.

If it were me, I'd go further and demand a fine that's at least eight digits, bar them from next year's draft and bar them from playing until they get their sh*t together; any remaining games would be declared forfeit.

If the Steelers' players don't get paid for a forfeit...well, force Baltimore to pay their salaries for the game.  Seems fair enough to me.

Also (obligatory):

THE GAME TIME HAS BEEN CHANGED TO 3:40 ET.
I'm watching local news and they said that just happened a couple of minutes ago.

THE STEELERS SUNDAY GAME IS CHANGED TO MONDAY, THEY HAVEN'T DECIDED ON A TIME YET.

Cripes, it's a good thing the Steelers are having a good season, because it sure is a lot of work to find the final answers on when they're playing lol.

I love how you're laughing about it while the team is getting completely screwed.

Play this Wed afternoon, then again Monday , against a team on 11 days rest  while the Ravens get to play Tuesday.

the team who created the mess is being coddled and rewarded while everyone else is punished.

Former Ravens fan here who feels very unkind towards the NFL in general and Ravens fans in particular. So I want to see bad things happen to the team. All that said, my understanding is that the NFL's policy is to reschedule due to uncontained outbreaks, but not due toissing players. The Ravens outbreak may be ongoing and the league won't play the game until it's arrested. The Broncos game was played because the outbreak had been contained.
