Now that Major League Baseball looks like it’ll play (unless COVID-19 has something to say about that), the “will they or won’t they” question turns to the other sports. And football isn’t shaking the coronavirus.
On WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed whether or not a contact sport in which distancing seems impossible can be played right now. Also, Jamal Adams wants the New York Jets to trade him. The Washington Redskins are feeling more pressure to change their name. And the Detroit Lions’ new boss is same as the old boss.
As I said on the radio, I don’t expect much to change with Martha Firestone Ford passing ownership of the Lions to her daughter, Sheila Ford Hamp. Many Lions fans believe that the team will be bad as long as the Ford family owns the team. But the optimist in me hopes that Hamp has some new ideas and shows leadership in the right areas. There’s nowhere to go but up!
