  1. Wait, the stalker/troll guaranteed there would be no NFL games played in 2020.

    How could one person always be wrong about EVERY SINGLE thing he has ever typed here?

    Poor Barney

  2. Just a reminder that the NFL paid ted wells millions of dollars to conclude that physics doesnt exist. They are getting the result they want on these COVID numbers too, from the looks of things. Good luck to all the old and obese coaching staff who are particularly at risk.

  3. Some people should watch what they type…karma has a way of catching up to ya….just sayin

  4. Awesome news. Good on teams and players for taking care to keep exposure risk at minimum.

    How many tested positive for the flu?

    My point is, Every year, every team has players come down with the ‘flu’ or exhibit ‘flulike symptoms’. Not this year. It’s the dreaded plague.
