Yes, welcome Duckster!
It’s amazingly refreshing to be talking about football, like it might actually happen, in some form!
This year has been an insane year, overall, and we would likewise be incoherent to think we’ll just line up a football schedule and play it, like things are normal.
But I think getting some live PAC football on TV sets around our great league is possible.
Testing, re-testing, players isolating, plenty of guidelines for staff & everyone around the teams. Asking players to socially distance from others is a huge wildcard, but with your team’s fortunes on the lines, I think they’ll get some compliance.
Strict criteria for clean hotels, charter jets, bus transportation, food vendors following guidelines.
Everyone involved in officiating, telecasts, all the folks involved in putting on a TV game - testing, some re-testing.
I can’t wrap my head around having a normal stadium full of fans, unless everyone was wearing N95 masks, which would be a major medical equipment PR disaster.
As long as the idea is alive, I’ll start looking at the roster. The massive wildcard is when players are ruled out for 2-3 weeks. Which players? When did they come down with it? Who else? Will games have to be cancelled?
I can confidently predict fewer huddles!
Still more questions than answers, but this is a lot more fun to think about than just about everything else happening, except all the outdoor stuff we get to do.
