Way too much money at stake to not get games played. Plus, Mericuh!


Not disagreeing at all - but do you think fantasy football is part of their considerations?


For me, I would say no way does that play into their considerations. But then again nothing that Cadence said made me think that he was implying that...

Sounds like they are planning on playing as scheduled:

Should know more tomorrow.

With no in person practice or meetings until Saturday? That seems more than unfair.

I would bet the house on the Steelers if that happens.

Are we sure it matters that much?

I'm not sure it does, considering how the preseason went.

To be fair, if they plan on playing the game, the Steelers should have to follow the same restrictions as the Titans though.

Or this could be looked at as the punishment for flouting the NFL's COVID guidelines.

With kids going back to school seems dumb to punish people for catching a communicable disease.

Is that what happened with the Titans? I know the Raiders are in some hot water for this.

One more Titan tests positive, no Vikings so far.

Hard to say. I know that several coaches in the league have been fined for not wearing a mask, but they're quite visible during games. I haven't heard of any other (non-visible) personnel being reprimanded. The NFL would probably rather keep everything as quiet as possible.

Awesome week to add Jonnu! If it’s postponed indefinitely I doubt these players will get “IR” status

Well, here's a recent picture of head coach Mike Vrabel ignoring the league's mask-wearing mandate.

Gruden was fined 100k and the Raiders team 250k for violations

And I think that was before they had a protocol breach

Since everything was going smoothly the first three weeks, people likely started getting relaxed on the rules. Hopefully this is a wake up call. But if the NFL acts like the rest of the US population, it won't be.

For Fantasy purposes, if the game happens TUESDAY night would that be a part of this week or next week ??

I'm assuming it's a week 4 game but not sure how those lineup locks would go across espn or yahoo, since new weeks start Tuesday morning.
