Looking good so far Trooper. If we could get the tyrant governors out of the way, the country could safely open. At least the power hungry tyrants are exposing themselves everyday... If you removed the nursing home deaths this wouldn't even be news...

This alone makes me lean road dogs and overs, which usually isn't correlated. WizerGuy, I'm just bustin balls

Yeah, you can forget about any "home field advantage " this year.. Every game should be looked at as a " neutral site " game, regardless of where the game is played..

K_B. I should handicap football like I do pandemics.  an_wink

I believe the NFL WILL start on time. Limited or no fans. Early season games will be sloppy.  Limited off season workouts and training camps will show. 

Veteran QB's and intact units will have an edge.

On a side note,  I think the NBA cancels the rest of this year. Their season is so long that it will interfere with the  20-21 year. Also, they will not go up against the NFL. 

I'd rather be talking about games.....

Agreed although in nearly 4 months when they start they will allow about 20-25K fans 6 feet apart IMOP and it sounds like even if a few players on a team test positive they will be pulled for about a month I guess and just be replaced with practice roster players from their and other teams and ready to play free agents itching to go so I think everything will go off pretty well in sept.

This opinion is a far cry from my op. 2 months ago as I was an alarmist with the sky ready to fall not that that does not mean it won't financially...it's going down big time as the lockdown/cure reaction is much much worse than the virus warrants but as more info comes in.....health wise.....on how many people have already had the virus with no ill effects about 50x what the #'s the gov. is telling us  (NYC is as an example) this greatly over blown media hyped scare is starting to wear off and in 4 months it will be even harder to scare people so NFL here we come in sept. with about 1/3 of the fans as it is 19x more likely to catch this indoors football (around 25 stadiums) and baseball have big adv. over NBA/NHL for fans and somewhat for players.
