Looks like I was right - this was mostly about no preseason games, and perhaps less about protocols.
Well, given they had already agreed to cut the preseason in half, I'm sure the owners were hesitant to go to no preseason at all as that wasn't "demanded" by the NFLPA until 2 weeks ago. Relative to testing - daily testing to me seems a bit extreme, and it looks like the plan that you showed above is probably not something they just threw together today. I'm still thinking no preseason was the major issue.So why did owners disregard panel recommendations, a joint league and NFLPA panel? No preseason was part of that recommendation as was daily testing
