The pandemic isn’t going away anytime soon, so sports leagues are continuing to be forced to pivot and readjust how they operate.
For the NBA, NHL and MLB, that entails putting their season on pause. As for the NFL, that particular league is lucky in that their 2020 regular season isn’t scheduled to start until early September.
Still, there’s so much contact among teammates, as well as opposing players, so it will still be a challenge for the season to kick off as scheduled. There are some that believe Week 1 won’t happen until possibly in October, if not later, but Dolphins owner Stephen Ross isn’t in that camp.
It still seems highly unlikely that fans will be in the stands for games, though.
