Yeah it would be better if he had it vs her. Could have been anyone that he came into contact with though.


There is a good chance he might have gave it to her, if he does indeed have it himself.


Now 2020 has contagious brain tumors?

Of course it does.

Not sure if there is a thread on it yet, but have any dynasty commissioners been adjusting IR rules yet for the season?

"A new study published Monday in the JAMA Cardiology Journal found that 78 percent of recovered COVID-19 patients had permanent heart damage.

The study from the University Hospital Frankfurt examined the cardiovascular MRIs of 100 people who had recovered from the coronavirus. The heart images showed that almost 80 percent of recovered COVID-19 patients had structural changes to their hearts.

Sixty percent of patients had ongoing myocardial (heart muscle) inflammation even after recovery.

The majority of the patients were not hospitalized and recovered at home, with symptoms ranging from none to moderate."

My proposal - Four bubbles -

One for each region of the US - East, West, South, North - 8 teams per bubble

Throw away the schedules and divisions.

Each bubble will play each other, with it's own top 2 teams playing a "playoff" game to win the Bubble region

Two weeks off for quarantine - then all 4 winning teams go to the "Super Bubble" for the conference championship and Super Bowl.

turns out it was a false positive. apparently it's caused some issues for their family regarding people saying things to them in public, daycare refusing their kids, etc.

You need to find multiple field in those bubbles. 4 games of nfl football a week on the same field isn’t going to look good a couple of weeks in. Free agents are going to be a problem also. If you need to sign someone, they are going to have to sit for 5-6 days.

I agree, players are still going to opt out depending on their personal situations but I think the deadline was more for financial/cap reasons.

Opt outs after the deadline will have different financial/cap impacts.

If there is a direct high risk health concern, those should be be treated differently. Opting out for precaution is not the same.
