very sorry about that kind of bad intro to the broadcast, but, uh, hello, everybody.
Welcome to week up.
Uh, today we've got some NFL.
We have some MLB.
We have some, uh, we have some golf to explore, and we have MLB games to review.
Ah, whole lot of them.
We've also got the W N V eight and some and the Premier Li.
So let's get into it.
Uh, our first story is NFL players who contract the Corona virus through high risk activity away from team facilities can face team discipline and might be at risk of not being paid.
According to the league's new protocol, a member of sent by the NFL P A two agents this weekend, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN, outlines several rules governing player contracts, opt out provision and the contractual consequences of a canceled season.
The memo says that the final language of Friday's agreement between the league and the players will appear in a side letter that is still being negotiated, and the, and that the information distributed this weekend represents a summary of major aspects of the curve it amendments.
The basics have been dealt with and the final section of the memo is devoted to the fact that players will be held responsible for the way they circulate in public Wall Corona virus and remains present.
Players were told weeks ago on a conference call with NFL P, a leadership that they could that they could face discipline, including fines for conduct detrimental to the team if their phones to have contracted Kogan, 19 through reckless activity away from the facility.
This weekend's memo reinforces that and says that such activity could allow a team to challenge the status of a covert 19 diagnosis diagnosis As a football injury, the challenge works.
To succeed personally, the team could place the player on the non football injury list, a move that, with a lot of the team, the option of not paying him.
To be clear, the procedure to be clear on the procedure players are required to test negative twice before they will be allowed to to enter the team facility at start of training camp.
Any player who is diagnosed with Cove in 19 after two negative entry test will have his condition diagnosed as a football injury for the NFL.
NFL P A agreement and the team will be able to place that player on a Kogan 19 specific injured reserve list from which he will be allowed to return after a meeting circuit after meeting certain criteria.
The memo also states clubs and the NFL can challenge a designation as a football related injury if it can prove that the player contracted Cove in 19 through engaging in high risk conduct that this issue remains open for the memo.
The NFL defines high risk conduct as attending an indoor nightclub with more than 15 people and into a bar with more than 15 people other than to pick up food and into her House party with more than 15 people and indoor music.
Concert slash entertainment events with more than 15 people a professional sporting event other than applicable NFL games or events with more than 15 people, an indoor religious service attended by more than 25% of the venue's capacity.
Players are going to have to be careful outside the building, L.
A Rams tackle Andrew Whitworth said last week on a conference call after disclosing that he and his entire family got the virus after one of them went to lunch with a friend and it takes is one exposure and it can spread like wildfire.
Other teams addressed in this weekend's NFL P a memo.
There will be no reduction in 2020 players, salaries or bonuses if there's a complete NFL season.
17 million in 2020 player benefits have been canceled, including the second career savings plan, Tuition assistance and and playoff bye week pay.
Those benefits will be repaid.
Two players is through a new benefit after 2023.
Most of the cancelled benefits would have been new this year under the C B, A sign in March, and they will begin.
They will instead begin in 2021.
If at least one week of NFL games played players who were on a team's Week one roster, the practice squad will not have their contracts told and will receive one full credited season for the purpose of pension and benefits and an secured season toward free agency.
A player a player who chooses to opt out of the 2020 season must inform his team in writing within seventies of finalizing of the sad.
Later his contract will told, meaning it will pick up next year where it is now.
As long as he earned, credited season in 2019 or was drafted in 2020 he will get a stipend of 15 of $150,000 which will be treated as a salary events and come out of future years.
