Would you sign a waiver to attend a football game this fall? You might have to. The Athletic is reporting that the NFL is considering requiring fans to sign liability waivers shielding teams from COVID-19 lawsuits to attend games this season.

The proposal could be sent out to teams next week as the league tries to figure out how to return to action this fall. Other ideas include asking fans to wear masks, requiring every stadium to go cashless, and only offering prepackaged food at concessions. The NFL is already requiring its clubs to cover the first six to eight rows of seats in the stadiums with tarps to maintain distance between players and fans.

    I wouldn’t go to an NFL game, but I would for college. However, since college players aren’t paid that changes the conversation.

    Yawn. Have not watched the NFL for years, and certainly will not when those marxist entitled fools kneel in mass.

    The NFL supports the destruction of the United States. But, the phony creeps want the fruits of capitalism
