Per Shefter

Will also push back the opening of camp for the Steelers and Cowboys, which may domino the start dates for the rest of the league.
Hall of Fame Game Canceled - ( New Window )
This is just the first shoe to drop

Anyone confident there'll even be a 2020 NFL Season?
Am I drunk?

did the earlier thread get deleted? LOL
Wasn't there an earlier thread on this

or am I losing it?
I am optimistic

You cant overreact to every positive test, if you are going to, do not even bother trying, there are going to be positive tests..

You cant run and hide from this virus that has been proven..

Cancelling the hall of fame game was predictable and not a surprise
I thought there was another thread too

But I couldn’t find it...
Another sensible decision  
ZogZerg : 6/25/2020 11:17 am : link
Have all the teams start on the same day.
And, reduce travel/contact.

In the long run, it may not matter...
I doubt there will be a 2020 season.

Maybe a handful of games to start but I don't see it playing through its entirety. Maybe there can be a virtual NFL season where teams play Madden against each other.
I highly doubt there will be a season

With the latest spike around the country I think it will force the league to shut down. Its not magically going to go away in a month. the thing is that Corona Virus has been around for a long time and for the most part the virus was not serious until this recent strain. I dont think the testing differentiates between the 2 strains. So the question is, how many of the people that have been diagnosed with COVID 19 have the new and very powerful form and how many have the one that has been around for decades and was not considered serious?

now I see what happened to the first thread.
Apparently they are merging this into the 2021 Induction

"Twice the Fun in 21!"

The class was already HUGE for 20. Sounds like a long and painful induction ceremony scheduled for next year...

Where did you read or hear this. If true it’s rather significant and puts a totally different perspective on the number of cases being reported.

Other numberS to consider with the number of cases are those requiring hospitalization and deaths. Seems to me those surely impact how we learn to live with this virus as opposed to retreating rom it.

As to sports the PGA, albeit with easier circumstances is finding a way to play on, encouraging. Very interested to see how MLB and NBA manage it going forward

I remain optimistic and hopeful.
I started previous thread

I misspell the subject so decided to delete ..

Well, its a damn good thing you restarted it  
MetsAreBack : 6/26/2020 5:26 pm : link
so everyone could chime in with their thoughts on the chances of a season yet again
Do the players even want it?

Malcom Jenkins sure didn't sound too enthusiastic from a self-preservation and family preservation standpoint and I don't blame him. And he's a vet who has made millions. If you're in your prime and haven't gotten that big deal yet then risking long term lung damage is something to consider.
There..

may or may not be a season, but I wouldn't read too much into this game not being played.

With each team only having 2 preseason games, it was unlikely they would start the preseason early for the HOF game.
