All right, so I guess now you understand what the plan Waas Absolutely at coleslaw.
We talked Indianapolis Colts football.
We're going to stick to what we know.
Fundamentals and techniques 1% better every day.
I'm Lourdes going and this is SportsCastr news.
Earlier today, it was reported that Odell Beckham Jr has decided to opt out.
He said to the Wall Street Journal, We are not ready for football season, So why are we even trying to push forward? I just feel like the season shouldn't happen, and I'm prepared for it not to happen and wouldn't mind not having now.
That was two weeks ago.
A lot of people are not realizing that That interview happened two weeks ago before Odell Beckham Jr went to the Browns facility.
When he went to the facility, there was an actual different aspect.
He saw how safe the Browns facility was, and then he reported to the Browns reporters that he has no plans of out opting out that he felt as though that it was quite safe now.
So players multiple players have opted out of the season.
I didn't even go into their facility to see how it was done.
They just assume that since there was no bubble, that the teams were not doing it properly Well, that the NFL, the NFL p A.
Was not putting things in place.
Multiple players on multiple teams have already opted out.
Granted teams like the Bears, defensive tackle Eddie Goldman and safety Jordan Lucas Biggles defensive lineman Josh Powell.
The Bills have star Look, Little Ellie and cornerback E. J. Gaines.
The Broncos have Kyle Peco and offensive tackle Jawan James.
The Browns already have Drew Forbes and Drake Door Beck.
Um, the Cheese, uh, Lauren Duvernay, ****if and Damien Williams.
The Cowboys have Maurice Canady stuff.
Stephen Guidry and Jamie's a Whale.
Sorry, some of these guys I don't recognize their names because they're not stars in the NFL, and I don't say their names very often.
However, The Eagles Marquis.
The Giants Nate Soldier and Damar E.
Scott JAG wires.
Lauren Team McRae in our woods.
Leo Cole Koloa, Makani.
CJ Mosley Obviously, we know that name very well.
John Atkins and Jerome Geronimo Allison with Lions, The Packers Have they got Devin Funches? The Panthers have Jordan Mac and Christian Miller.
Obviously, everybody's heard.
They've got multiple people, including Brandon Bolden, Marcus Cannon, Patrick Chung, Donta Hightower, Marquis Lee, Najee Toran, Danny Matteo, Batali's and Matt Lacrosse. Look off.
The Ravens have Andre Smith, the Anthony Thomas.
The Saints have Jason Vander Land and cold wit.
The Seahawks has chance.
The Texans have Eddie Vanderdoes.
Titans have Anthony McKinney.
The Vikings have Michael Pierce, and the Washington football team have Caleb Brantley and Josh Harvey Clemons.
There are teams out there that have no one that have decided to opt out.
Yet teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Rams, the Las Vegas Raiders, we have the Atlanta Falcons, the Miami Dolphins, the Indianapolis Colts, the Chargers, the Arizona Cardinals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the San Francisco 40 Niners all have got no one that has of yet to this stream.
Decided to opt out for the 2020 season.
While I'm here, I want to say thank you, Billy man 90 to 88 silly Simon for joining the stream.
Thank you for the follow silly Simon.
I appreciate that.
If you were watching here on SportsCastr and I didn't call your name out and you were the multiple people on here that I see over 30 people watching, please make a profile.
That way you could come back.
That way you're notified.
Next time I go live, Plus could hit the like button.
Let me know that I'm doing good here also, let's go over some of the pluses and minuses for opting out.
Obviously, you can opt out.
And if you are someone who is ah, high risk player, you will still get $350,000 of your current contract this year and your contract will be moved to 2021.
What basically moved over one year.
And if you're not a high risk player, you get $150,000 of the current contract and your your contract has moved one season.
Ah, lot of players, however, want to play because they're on teams that they truly feel have a shot.
A lot of those teams are like the teams that I've already named off now, granted, there are a lot of players who feel as though they don't want to play because they don't want to put themselves or their family at risk.
Newborn Children like Russell Wilson or, let's say, von Miller, who has not opted out.
But he is a high risk player, so if he chose to opt out, it would only be understandable, being that he has asthma.
Granted, he's already contracted it earlier in the season.
I mean, Doug Peterson just was announced that he has the cove in 19 currently, and now we'll have to pass to negative tests in order to come back into the facility.
Granted, he could still help doing virtual meetings, just like he's done the entire off season.
Some of the benefits of showing up you come in, you play, you get tested, you get tested every day that you come in.
You are kind of in a bubble.
You're not expected to go out, go out to eat and stuff like that.
Um, you're tested daily.
There are different ways that the teams actually monitor you.
This device that tracks you as you go through the facility.
They track where everyone is at all points of time.
That way, if a test does come back positive, they know who you had in contact with and they can clear those out, bubble them up and test them just to make sure.
Obviously, you have to have two negative tests in order to come back into the facility, just in case there is a mistake on one of those tests.
I don't see an issue with this.
I think the NFL and the NFL P.
A have done a very good job setting up standards.
And obviously, if there's no NFL season, the massive hit, the massive hit the NFL will take an income loss will be huge.
Just not having fans in the stands.
They're already expecting three $1,000,000,000 loss, $3 billion just because they're not gonna have fans in the stands.
And because of that, they're going to drop a $25 million cap hit on each team Now.
The teams were not gonna have to worry about paying all that or having that cap on one season.
Obviously, because of there's so many teams out there like Baltimore, like Kansas City like Dallas that just they can't afford that.
There's gonna put him way too much in the red in one season.
So they're gonna have allowing teams to pay that cap head off in a three year stand, which will be about 88 and 1/3 $1,000,000 over three seasons.
You know, for three seasons, if they miss a season an entire season adverti*****ts, television, all sorts of stuff, the revenue loss will be huge.
The cap hit would be massive, so massive that it would end up being like a 10 year hit.
And it will be a lot more than 8.
3 million a year.
We're looking at, you know, probably $30 million a year for 10 years, because that's how much of a revenue hit the NFL will take if they do not have the season.
Thanks for joining Stream.
Appreciate you being here. Now.
That doesn't mean that you should play this season.
I understand the argument for and against absolutely play four because obviously fans want to see it, but they want to see their players safe, right? I get that.
No one wants to put people in an unnecessary situation, but people still go out.
I mean, everybody still go has to go to the store anyhow.
Everybody still has to go out and pay bills or what Not? Sometimes you could pay bills at home, but you still got to go to the grocery store.
You still got to go out and get supplies.
You still got to get out of your house.
Occasional. You cannot be a hermit.
You still got to go toe work, right? A lot of you may be on unemployment right now.
A lot of you may have lost your jobs.
Um, especially if you work for, like, a local privately owned business rather than a corporation.
And I understand that, and you might be on unemployment.
I hope that you find yourself some employment soon, but these players are employed and their company is doing everything in their power, I believe, to make sure that their employees are safe.
So just go to work.
I don't see a problem with that, and on top of that, it's good help with the if you do not have sports.
There is a bit of a hit on morale on the nation, right? A lot of people love the NFL.
It's something that they use to ease their own stress.
You know, they wait for that during that NFL season to hear their news toe wash the games, and it relieves their personal life.
Stress helps with morale not only for individual people but players as well, because they love to see their fans.
I get that they won't see them as much because they won't be in the stands.
But they could still see them on social media and see the reactions to games and and personal players and stuff like that.
They already know, you know, And plus they're out there having fun.
Not just it's not just work for them.
This is a game and they're enjoying themselves.
But like I said, if you have a situation where you just don't feel comfortable because you know you have a baby or let's say you're grandparent's or something like that or living with you, you don't want you don't want to take the chance of bringing that back to your family member.
I get it. I understand.
Opt out. It's your choice.
I'm not going toe judge you for opting out.
We're not opting out, but if you play great, but understand that if they do opt out, you cannot retract that.
Once you put in the letter that you have opted out, there's no retracting.
You are done for the season period in the discussion.
So you gotta make sure that is what you want to do.
Just like we're Odell Beckham Jr.
Before he even went into the facility to check it out to see if it was safe, had said he don't think that the NFL is ready.
Then he went to the stadium and seeing, Oh, look at all these protective things that they've got in place to keep this.
Keep the players and staff and coach is safe.
Then he retracted the statement, decided he wanted to play.
Make sure you have that decision made by having all the facts.
Make sure you have all the facts before you make a decision.
I personally I can't wait for the NFL season. The star.
I hope they all stay.
Say I understand that it sucks if you catch it.
We have yet to see as far as I know, I don't think any sports player who's caught the virus has died.
I understand that many have caught it, but I don't think any have actually died from it.
Sports player wise generally because they're in healthy condition, right? I mean, they're young peak physical shape.
Yes, it's gonna suck with that.
They have issues breathing, maybe have a fever.
Whatever you know, it's like catching the flu to some of them. Some.
Sometimes it's worse than others.
It really depends upon the person that contracts it.
Because how it affects one person is different than how it affects another Cubs fan.
Thanks for joining the Stream.
Appreciate you being here.
I really, really, I want to see this season start.
I think there's a lot of people out there that want to see the season start as well.
There's other issues and affecting this as well.
I mean, obviously you got the whole black lives matter thing that's going on that turns off some fans.
Oh, well, that's it turned me off.
I want to see the football game, period.
You know, um, let the NFL play this whole Don't make a decision for the NFL themselves.
As fans don't sit there and say they shouldn't play, it's there to see him.
If you have enough players that want to play and did not opt out and you hurt my list earlier, there wasn't that many 20 max that have opted out 20 out of 80 times 32 32 teams, 80 players a team.
And if you opt out, apparently there's some sort of opt out list like I our list that you go on so you don't take up of a place on the 53 man roster.
The team can then go out and get somebody else to take your place.
Or at least you know, fill another roster spot in your absence.
This is a great situation.
I think that the NFL's got going right now, and I don't want to see all these teams take this massive, massive cap hit that they will inevitably take it.
There is no NFL season.
You will see teams next year not being able to pay their own players and then you got bankruptcy possibly kicking in right.
You don't want to see that unless it's inevitable.
Obviously, if the NFL season starts and by you know, we'll say within.
You know, during that span, you see 1/10 even 1/5 of the players to track the virus or not money.
Not 1/5 like 5%.
All the wife said.
A 55% of the total players contract this virus, and then all of a sudden, you know, they shut it down.
I understand that.
That's something, you know, because obviously the situation then has gotten out of control and they need to just shut it down.
But unless something like that starts to happen, why not play? Why not? If they want to play, let him play.
So I want to thank.
