IT issues. Yeah. No bleep.
Welcome to April 2020.
Welcome to COVID-19.
Welcome to the pandemic.
Welcome to the apocalypse.
The NFL has been conspicuously tone deaf, cruising into, and through, free agency as though people weren’t dying, the economy wasn’t cratering and everyone — all across the globe — was’t stuck in their homes trying to do their job via Zoom, assuming they still have one.
It’s easy to crush the league for this approach but it’s also worth wondering whether we really should.
ESPN’s Mina Kimes, in an appearance on The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz, noted that, at a time when damn near no business is able to operate as usual, should we really be shutting down the businesses that *can* operate as usual or at least usual adjacent?
The answer is no, at least so long as we’re trying to limit the chaos already unleashed on our economic system.
But still. That tweet. Those "concerns." Now THAT was tone deaf.
IT issues. Zoom snafus. Social distancing.
I should mention I miss my standing desk. My wireless mouse. My dual monitors.
Yep. Welcome to the apocalypse, NFL. Glad you finally joined us.
