Goodell Shuts Down All Club Facilities

As of 6 pm Eastern time today.


In a memo sent to teams Tuesday night, commissioner said the rules were meant to "ensure that all clubs operate on a level playing field, and that the NFL continues to conduct itself in a responsible way at this time."
Among the directives to take effect Wednesday at 6 p.m. local time, according to the memo, all club facilities were to remain closed to all personnel.

That was subject to the following exceptions:
Employees such as athletic trainers or physicians who are providing ongoing medical treatment to players
Employees such as the director of facilities, security personnel or independent contractors necessary to maintain the physical security of the facility and its contents
Employees such as technology personnel necessary to maintain the security and operational capabilities of the club's IT network to enable remote work by club football and business staff
said the directives had been reviewed and endorsed by the NFL's competition committee and "will remain in effect until further notice."
"During this time, clubs are free to conduct all normal business operations, including signing players, evaluating draft-eligible prospects, selling tickets, and other activities to prepare for the 2020 season," the memo said.





A necessary monkey wrench thrown into preparations for the 2020 season. An inconvenience but it still sucks. The biggest problem I see is film study on draftees but that can be done from home. Draftees can be (& have been for a while) interviewed by conference calls, hopefully with video for body language interpretation.
