National Football League looking into Saturday games

NFL likely to play Saturday games if college football doesn't kick off?

Nonetheless, the lost advertising dollars are quickly stacking up for Disney's sports-focused broadcasting side of the media giant, according to EDO CEO Kevin Krim, who told Yahoo Finance's YFi PM that college football is right up there with the other major leagues in terms of advertising importance.

On Tuesday, presidents of Big Ten schools voted to postpone the college football season for the fall as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Our primary responsibility is to make the best possible decisions in the interest of our students, faculty and staff", said Morton Schapiro, chair of the Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors and president at Northwestern University. "In my mind, we've made the decision and we've canceled the 2020 season", Chryst said.

Chryst coached in what was known at the time as the World League of American Football and later become NFL Europe. It's not clear how strong that possibility would be, given the varying approaches being taken nationwide to high school sports in the fall.

Two seasons within one year have a detrimental effect on the athletes who aren't five-star prospects. With regard to returning to school, Reynolds said that some teammates who have worked their entire lives to play the sport are in "rough situations" at home and suggested the schools provide safety. Never have to worry about the lights being turned on or helping out my parents with bills. "They've worked so hard for their entire life", said Reynolds.

But the actual NFL football schedule (and the COVID-19 protocols helping it play out on time) is all the league needs to worry about in mid-August.

"One of my old football coaches, used to say, 'Life is 10% what happens, and 90% how you respond to it, '" Reynolds said. He said conversations about a spring football season have been minimal, but there has been a theme. With the two conferences (and potentially more) deciding to cancel their fall seasons and potentially play their 2020 seasons in the spring of 2021, Terez and Charles look at what this means for the NFL.

National Football League leaders and owners were trying to figure out the ramifications Wednesday of the announcements made a day earlier that the Big Ten and Pac-12 were canceling their fall seasons and would consider playing in the spring.

But as COVID-19 continues its spread throughout the USA, that ritual appears to be in serious danger. "I don't think that's necessarily a good idea". Day said the Buckeyes will still be tested once a week. "And then they get it and they end up in the hospital".

"I think Justin wants to see what the schedule is", Day said.
