Things have gone so swimmingly for the NFL that it’s almost easy to forget they are playing the 2020 season amid a pandemic. Their latest round of testing from Sept. 13-19 produced zero positive results in the 14,074 tests administered to 2,438 players.

But the NFL isn’t getting comfortable.

It issued a memo Friday reminding teams about game-day protocols and warned of discipline for non-compliance.

The memo, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports, also revealed an unnamed team is “currently under investigation for unauthorized locker room access.”

Access to the locker room is restricted to 40 individuals from six specific categories, plus three ownership representatives.

  1. so a team is sneaking into another team’s locker room. don’t know the reason why exactly but if there’s an investigation it must’ve been to get some kind of cheating. So who could that be? How about we get one guess who this “unnamed” team is, everyrone at the count of three: one … two … three …. PATRIOTS!

  2. This is one thing that needs to stay the same when all this COVID-19 stuff is over, No locker room access. Why was this ever a thing ? Reporters can wait until these guys are showered and dressed to ask thier stupid questions.

    Probably the Patriots, they don’t believe in rules.

    That would be a second round pick and a $500000 fine for the team and the coach.

  4. If the team is unnamed, and the level of unauthorised access unknown, then why report it? No facts means it’s speculation.

    Naaah… if it was the Patriots the NFL would name them.

  6. “so a team is sneaking into another team’s locker room.”

    If you actually read the article it sounds more like a team has allowed more than the 40 players/staff and 3 ownership reps into their own locker room, and has nothing to do with going into another team’s

    Well you can count to 3 so you have that going for you but when it comes to reading comprehension that’s a huge failure. No one is sneaking into another teams locker room their allowing too many people in their own locker room.

  8. Yeah, while my first thought was the Patriots, someone at the league office would have already leaked it if it was them.

  9. It’s not the jets – Goodell’s connection. And we’re due for another belichick envy witch hunt.

  10. Yeah haters. It’s the Patriots because standing around in a locker-room gives them an unfair ADVANTAGE, RIGHT? bLAH.

  11. As a Pats fan, when I read the headline I immediately thought “oh, come on!”

    Then I read that it’s about not counting the number of men in the locker room correctly, so I now assume it’s the Jets.
