    Will there be an NFL season in 2020?

    Not wanting to get into any politics at all, but if he said "I want everyone to be safe from this virus and deaths to be kept at a total minimum", there would be people on the 'other side of the aisle' who would object.

    Have you signed up for a free subscription of NFL Game Pass? It's free in North America through May 31st. I think it's free outside of North America through July 31st.

    Hello, Bonjour ! from France

    No problem. There's a lot of stuff there to watch, so it'll definitely help ward off any withdrawals from live sports and other news that can't happen while all this is going on.

    I am not sure that there will be a NFL season...?

    I can definitely get something to you to help tide you over. I know that I have at least 10 to 20 discs (I just don't remember exactly how many... or exactly where they are at the moment lol). A lot of my DVD/Blu-Ray stuff had to get packed away, so I'll dig it all out and see where I stand.

    Hello, Bonjour ! from France

    Welcome to the nest. Reputation wise, we (Eagles fans), are probably the most notorious in the NFL community. I've grown to embrace that, over the years. Something that you may not be aware of is that NFL.COM has offered their Game Pass feature for free until at least May 31st, but possibly July 31st, outside of North America. So you can go sign up for that and get a ton of NFL content for free, while the globe is on lockdown. There's definitely some good stuff in there too, like the 'A Football Life' for Reggie White & Jerome Brown, for Randall Cunningham and also for Brian Dawkins. Those are great, especially the Dawkins episode.

    I completely forgot, I've been dealing with some family health issues for a while and that's been occupying a large majority of my time. This would be an excellent time to pull out my Blu-Ray/DVD duplicator, though, wouldn't it? I'll look at the supplies that I have and see what I can do. The only issue that I might run into is that I think my Disc Printer is on the fritz. Last time I tried to print on a disc, it didn't print.

    Retire #17

    I honestly wish they'd un-retire 5. They'd NEVER do that, but like you, I don't think it should have ever been retired to begin with. I'd go along with retiring 9 far sooner than I'd agree with 5. When 99 was retired, I fully understood why and wouldn't ever begrudge that move. But at the time, I found it a little curious. With regard to 17, I fully admit my 100% bias. Harold was one of my favorite players when I was a kid, and still is one of my all-time favorites. If I had any 'power' or 'pull' (which I don't), I'd be all in for retiring 17 immediately. I've been saying that for years though, just like I've been saying that he belonged in the Hall for all these years. The first time I saw a player wearing 17 (I have no idea who it was), I was a bit outraged that they would dare issuing that number to some random 'nobody'! lol

    Retire #17

    He was a once in a generation type player, in his time. It's too easy now to look at what WR's do in the modern game and forget/overlook/devalue what he was in his day.

    I hope it is too, but they fully expect (last I heard), that there will be a second (and maybe a third) wave. So they can have it under control, but still not really be 'out of the woods'. I fully want an NFL season, but at the same time, I don't want to risk anyone's health/life for it. I can survive by watching the 2017 season, 1 week at a time, until 2021.

    Retire #17

    That's my favorite Jersey era, the first game with the (then) new jersey with the Eagle on the sleeve, I was pissed at the change. I was 17 when they changed (it was in 1986, right?). I grew up just outside of D.C. in a house with 3 Redskins fans (my father and two of my brothers), so the Redskins were the main game that was on the TV in the living room and of course, Eagles games weren't on in the area very often. But that season, the Eagles opened the season with the Redskins, so I was excited to see the Eagles on TV... and was shocked (and initially confused) at the jersey. With no internet at the time, and receiving ZERO Eagles news where I lived, I had no idea that they were changing the uniforms. If we ever get Kelly Greens back (even just as an alternate), that's the one that I'd want... though I know that they wouldn't get the stripes right, so they may as well go with the 1986 version, I really like those too.

    That could be, I hadn't heard that it was changed, but I wasn't following too closely.

    I meant to address this part and forgot. If we just look at the Eagles roster, and if we assume a 17 game schedule for 2020, only 5 players would be affected (in 2020). Cox, Johnson, Jeffery, Ertz and Jackson

    That really only covers a small percentage of players. The bulk of the NFL are 'low paid' in comparison. I think it was said that only 3 or 4 percent or maybe 5, would get 'shafted' while 95% would get a sizable increase in their pay. That's why players like Watt and Brees were against it while the lower paid players were for it. In the end though, the players knew what was in the CBA before they voted. So it was their choice to approve it. Union leadership can make recommendations, but ultimately, it comes down to a vote and whichever way the union members vote, that's the way it is. I would also assume that all new contracts will fix that. So let's say that the Eagles bring Jason Peters back tomorrow. He has no contract right now, but he'll sign a new contract tomorrow and that new contract will be for a 17 game schedule (assuming there's actually a 17 game schedule this season) and that 17th game could be worth $2 Million (or whatever his contract pays him per game). But since Lane Johnson is already under contract, he'll max out in that 17th game at $250,000.00. This isn't a permanent thing, this is just for the small time that the old '16 game' contracts are still running. Eventually, all of those contracts will expire or be terminated and no longer have any effect. At least that's my understanding of it.
