The NFL just informed clubs that if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week season in 2021 due to a COVID outbreak among unvaccinated players, the team with the outbreak will FORFEIT and be credited with a loss for playoff seeding, per sources.

Massive implications.

Here’s more from today’s memo, which also says the team responsible for a canceled game because of an outbreak among unvaccinated players/staff will be responsible for financial losses and subject to potential discipline from the commissioner. Wow.

And the biggest penalty of all for players:

"If a game is cancelled and cannot be rescheduled within the current 18-week scheduled due to a Covid outbreak, neither team’s players will receive their weekly paragraph 5 salary."

You read that right: NOBODY GETS PAID.

What that means in practical terms is that if one team is missing key players, they'll play the game anyway so as to make sure everyone gets paid for the week. Those games will be like last season's Saints-Broncos game, in which the Broncos played a taxi-squad WR at QB because all their QBs were quarantined.

Hopefully this doesn't happen, but the Department of Labor has already ruled that employers can be held liable for adverse reactions to the vaccine should an employer require it. This scenario would seem to constitute a defacto requirement.

I don't think a court would rule that it was required, even though it would in essence be required.
