Could the NFL Season Be Cancelled?
While pretty much every single sport except for maybe horse racing (which I don't totally agree with by the way) has had to put everything on hold due to covid-19, the NFL seems to have dodged the pandemic's bullet and remains pretty much untouched. Since the league had the ability to hold the most recent Super Bowl right before things started really getting out of control here in the states, and players and teams not having to take the field again until late summer, it wasn't assumed they'd be affected.
But with forecasts for the virus growing worse by the day, some NFL coaches are worried that the season could be delayed, at best.
Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports that "everything is on the table for the 2020 season," including its cancellation. Yikes. He also says “Theoretically, it’s possible that the NFL will build, in the middle of nowhere, a corona-free campus where all players, coaches, trainers, doctors, broadcasters, officials, etc. would spend the entire season sequestered from the rest of the world, with games played on a series of fields from which the games would be televised, with no one else present."
When you put it that way, it makes more and more sense as to why it's pretty likely that this upcoming season could be postponed or canceled. We can only stay home, and hope for the best at this point!
