Players are not going to like this at all
The NFL might be forced to do something in 2021 that I’m not sure they’ve ever done in their history, make teams forfeit games.
Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reported on Thursday that if a game cannot be rescheduled during the upcoming season due to a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players, that the league could force the team with the outbreak to forfeit the game.
Here are some more details:
Another thing to keep in mind is that players won’t get paid if their team has to forfeit any games.
It sounds like the NFL doesn’t want to hear any excuses about outbreaks because there is a solution and that is that players get vaccinated. Now of course vaccinated people can still contract COVID-19. But if players aren’t vaccinated it will make it a lot easier for outbreaks to occur. And we saw how bad outbreaks can get within the NFL last season with unvaccinated players.
