I'm not sure football would be more difficult. Playing one game a week instead of the 7 games that baseball has should make it easier. A lot will depend on how responsible the players are. There are some unconfirmed rumors that some Marlins players may have left their hotel in Atlanta after their exhibition games last week and went to a club/bar.

They are still going to be practicing in groups throughout the week. The problem is that the players are going to be living at home and Will be outside in the community. They are going to be exposed whereas in the NBA and NHL they are living in isolation.

It doesn’t help that athletes are ... NEWSFLASH ... not very bright. The Rays celebrated a walk-off win on Sunday as if there was no such thing as Covid. Hugging, high fiving, pouring water on a players head, and shouting at and around each other (this was probably the most dangerous thing they did). And so many of them don’t wear masks even when they sit right next to each other and talk.

We can’t do this. Americans are too dumb.

@JeffPassan

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association have agreed to stage seven-inning doubleheaders starting Aug. 1, sources familiar with the situation tell ESPN.

@JeffPassan

Positive coronavirus tests with the St. Louis Cardinals have postponed their game against the Milwaukee Brewers, a source tells ESPN, confirming the
@jonheyman
report. Unclear how many, but to this point positives had been limited to teams in the East. Now in the Central, too.

This is ridiculous. Players didn't want a bubble though so this is what they get.

I don't like people getting sick but I do very much enjoy how obviously correct the guidance has been on the virus. It's all very simple, and it's no different that any other virus, if you want to slow down Covid-19 from spreading you stay home, stay away from others if you have to go out, wear a mask if you can't stay away from others when you're out, and you wash your hands.
