A little bit of the bubbly
It is funny that the teams that do things right get punished
so chiefs get full rest and bills get 5 day week?
He looks exactly like someone who would start a fight at a frat party.
Yeah, big shocker the 5'9" kid from the football team came back with the big guys to right him being wronged.
Just create a “week 18” for any games that still need to be played and get rid of the Super Bowl bye week/Pro Bowl. No one wants to play in the Pro Bowl in normal conditions, much less now. But forfeiting games is dumb — fine the shit out of teams that break Covid protocol but giving their opponents free wins (or denying their players a game check) opens up unnecessary cans of worms.
Baylor pause football activities bc of COVID?
That seems unfair for a team like bills or Steelers who may have byes/win divisions yet have to play a week later?
First of all, there are only two teams with byes this year (No. 1 seed in each conference). Second of all, those teams would still have byes in the wild-card round.
Week 18/makeup week would be played when the wild-card would have been played.
The wild-card round would be played when the divisional round would have been played. So this is when the No. 1 seed bye would occur.
Divisional round would be played when conference championship games would have been played.
Conference championship games would be played when the Pro Bowl would have been played.
The Super Bowl would be played as scheduled.
Rethinking your post, I think you were talking about other wild-card teams getting byes and teams playing week 18 not getting byes. So I’ll recalibrate and say that teams should only play Week 18 if their game is necessary for division/seeding/qualifying purposes. But it’d be unfair for a 12-3 Bills team not to have a chance at the top seed because it played one less game than the 13-3 chiefs. Nor would it be fair if a 12-3 team got the bye over a 12-4 team.
Not sure there’s a good solution, just a least bad one.
They won’t reschedule the Dolphins game. They are gonna wait until both are eliminated from playoff contention and then cancel the game.
everything is fucked
Crazy that a bunch of money hungry owners don’t care about the health of the workers.
I see Albert is no longer patting the NFL on its back for the great job they’ve done with managing COVID.
there’s no fucking way colleges are reporting cases properly imo
How does each conference do it? My understanding for B1G is that the results go directly to both schools and conference
i haven’t even checked it out but i’m 100% sure that the only conferences that are doing it properly are the b1g and pac
doesn’t really matter since every other team has had their entire team get sick by now tho tbh
didn’t your team have like 60 cases and keep practicing?
proves my point pretty well
No but keep pulling made up stuff from your delusional head.
Speaking of this; has Houston played yet?
yeah they played Tulane on Thursday or Friday
My favorite thing about watching football is now the exciting variety of face covering selection and usage.
Gotta remember that most coaches are just used car salesmen.
No offense to used car salesmen.
Seeing all these suspended games, man the ACC and Big 12 got this shit right and started the season as early as possible
Big ten is gonna be a cluster f, not to mention its sickness season in the North now
I guess the disconnect between SEC and NFL that I dont get (other than the NFL takes it more seriously) is why does Contact Tracing basically preclude the professional teams from practice/games at the onset of a handful of cases...whereas SEC teams have been trucking along and playing if they can get to 53.
You'd think NFL style contact tracing protocols would have forced mizzou to chill last weekend.
If the SEC had B12 guidelines it would have. In the B12 you deep 4 scholarship players at each position for the lines. Mizzou only had 2 scholarship DTs and 4 DEs.
I don't understand how a team that has an outbreak just keeps trucking along and playing games with a 1/4 of the roster out. Seems like you should prob give it a week before playing another game but I know the SEC doesn't give a shit
Yea Im not saying yall did anything wrong insofar as the rules. And i know the new covid issues are on Vandy's end of things.
Just would think the way we've seen community spread work, a football team more or less practicing daily in tandem is just as significant risk. Its not like the virus just eyes out the Offensive Line group during conditioning.
Va. Tech has been 20-25 players down the past few weeks. Simply put, colleges don’t give a shit and the players don’t have the leverage to make them give a shit. When the NFL (hardly a champion for the safety of its employees) looks better than you you’re being really terrible.
