    Raiders Fined $500,000 And Stripped Of Draft Pick

    The Las Vegas Raiders will face the heftiest punishment of any team to date for multiple violations of the NFL's COVID-19 protocols.

    The league is fining the organization $500,000 and coach Jon Gruden $150,000, Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reported Thursday. The Raiders also will be stripped of a sixth-round draft pick, per the report.

    No other team has been docked a draft selection for violating the league's COVID-19 policies. The Tennessee Titans were fined $350,000 in October after a joint investigation between the league and NFL Players Association determined the organization did not properly relay information to players during its COVID-19 outbreak and at times had personnel not wearing masks in the facility.

    After Raiders right tackle Trent Brown tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago, the NFL found video evidence that included several players not wearing masks or face shields and not adhering to social distancing on the sidelines, a person with knowledge of the league's investigation told USA TODAY Sports under the condition of anonymity. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to reveal details of the probe.

    The investigation also found that Brown removed the electronic contact tracing device that players and staff members are required to wear as a tool for mitigating spread.

    Brown was placed back on the COVID-19 reserve list on Thursday.

    All Nfl players have to wear them. Part of the deal they made for, cough cough, "contact tracing". Most think come Feb 1? There will be a national mandate on them. Have a few friends that are in the distributor business for those and they are "supposedly" lining up federal contracts. Whatever, I will never wear one

    You can see this coming a mile away; give up more of your rights for "safety". Hopefully, the SCOTUS will say fukk you.

    Don’t worry landers. They don’t make “dwarf sizes”, so you will never be forced to wear a tracking device

    Now why would the NFL take this so seriously?
    The POTUS thinks it's no big deal.........it might cost him a fine or his job?

    China virus clearly is not a serious threat to these guys. Not one single player that has tested positive has had major myocarditis, or any severe cardiovascular issues

    I believe the SEC has also used these devices on their college players. How is it invasion of privacy? Police officers have to wear body cams in many places. Most trucking companies have tracking devices on their tucks.
