The virus on league business

Recommended Posts

So if things go as they have looked like they seem to be trending and the league has to cancel the season how are the players paid?  There are not the 17 weeks of the season that each check comes out.  Do they keep the whole 90 man roster for the yr?  I was just curious how they execute this.

They'll be furloughed and then become eligible for unemployment.

No as they the veterans make millions it is the younger players and ones not millionaires that need to be furloughed.

it was refreshing Monday to see the Miami Dolphins publicly discuss contingency plans that would limit crowds to 15,000 and make other significant changes to the game day experience to account for social distancing. ........In an interview with "Good Morning America," Dolphins president Tom Garfinkel outlined a number of ways in which attending football games might look different for the time being, including new processes for ingress and egress, cleanliness measures for the building and a system for concessions where food would be ordered from a seat and picked up rather than people waiting in lines. ................If you want to come to a game, you have to wear a mask. People are going to be sitting staggered every few seats. You’re going to have to pick up your beer at a specific time. You won’t be able to leave in the middle of the fourth quarter to beat traffic but rather exit when your row is called. These would be big changes, but they’re honest proposals —...........https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/dan-wolken/2020/05/04/dolphins-plan-host-fans-amid-coronavirus-practical-refreshing/3078932001/

Another step forward! It may seem like and "ant step" but they must be as careful as possible.

The step-by-step requirements are:

  • Local and state government officials must consent to reopening.
  • The team must implement all operational guidelines set by the league to minimize the risk of virus transmission among employees.
  • Each club must acquire adequate amounts of needed supplies as prescribed by the league.
  • An Infection Response Team with a written plan for newly diagnosed coronavirus cases.
  • An Infection Control Officer to oversee all aspects of the implementation of the listed guidelines.
  • Each employee who returns to work at the club facility must receive COVID-19 safety and hygiene training prior to using the facility, and agree to report health information to the ICO.
  • The response team must consist of a local physician with expertise in common infectious disease principles; the team physician can fill that role. Also on the response team will be the infection control officer, the team’s head athletic trainer; the team physician, if he or she is not serving as the local physician; the human resources director; the team’s chief of security; its mental health clinician or someone with equivalent clinical expertise; and a member of the club’s operations staff such as the facility manager.

The league also is establishing workplace protocols that require face coverings unless a person is in a closed office. The orders also stress minimum contact, sufficient distancing, the gradual and phased return to in-person work, and continued “telework” and remote meetings to reduce the number of people at the facility. That includes adjusted hours and even shifts across all employees.

Business travel is discouraged unless essential. Visitors and service providers on site will be limited and there will be no direct contact with fans — no retail activity or in-person ticket sales.

Employees, including players, of course, will be encouraged to take their temperature routinely at home before heading to the team facility and to remain at home if their temperature is elevated. There will be daily screenings for all employees reporting to work, as well as visitors, contractors, and service providers who enter the club facility.

“We will continue to work in a deliberate and thoughtful way to plan for the 2020 season, including with [Thursday night’s] schedule release,” Goodell said, “and we will be prepared to address any contingencies as they arise.”....https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/nfl/bs-sp-nfl-reopening-facilities-protocol-20200507-k37yfivu7jesnjomci4heco3vm-story.html
