    NFL cancels 2 of 4 preseason games.

    The NFL has canceled 2 of the 4 preseason games. Each NFL team will now play one home game and one road game.

    Will there be an NFL season? Your thoughts.

    agree. i like the idea of less preseason games anyway. guys getting hurt too often.

    i think they will try the season. not sure if it will happen.

    Yeah the NFL will play the entire season. The preseason was complete bullshit anyways and this is just a confirmation of that. By getting rid of the hall of fame and 2 preseason games, that will give the league until mid August to actually start playing. I don't see fans in the stands this year, but the season will start on time and will not be interrupted. I have confidence that the NFL has their stuff together and have made all the adjustments needed. I expect sloppy play early in the season so I'm gonna look for the under as a go to play to begin with on most teams with few exceptions.

    I think the entire preseason schedule gets cancelled. Pfizer reporting positive results with their vaccine, if that gets approved for this year? Maybe their will be football. Otherwise could see football being delayed into the spring

    Players finally get their wish less preseason games means less risk of getting hurt and staying healthy longer in the regular season. As for whether they play the regular season or not I lean towards them trying to get it in but I guess time will tell.

    Agree. There may be no preseason. I think there will be one game, though. I think teams will want one warmup to get them ready. As a Bucs fan, they need it. They canít go into the season with no practice games.

    Wait until training camps start. They may not have players to play in preseason after contact practices start.

    On Thursday night’s NFLPA call, the union’s board of reps voted unanimously to recommend that the NFL play no preseason games this year. It’s unclear whether the league, which has already decided to cut the preseason from four games to two, will consider the recommendation.

    Btw, worth mentioning the NFLPA's recommendation of cancelling preseason game will come with significant lost revenue. Teams will lose the gate, lose out on a lot of local TV money, plus the league's network routinely posts its highest ratings in August, bc of the games.

    The diseased of America are not welcome abroad, not even in Mexico!

    The wall is still unfinished so some teams could head south. There is a chance they could all sneak across the border?
