Happy Thursday, everyone.
Not a ton going on in the land of news but I thought this was something worth noting.
Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the NFL has officially added on to their list of people and personnel that will not be allowed on the sideline during games this season.
That now includes the team cheerleaders, the team’s mascot, and other usual suspects such a sideline reporters and pregame television reporters. Funny enough, that means guys like Pelissero and GMFB’s Peter Schrager will be doing their normal sideline responsibilities in the stands with the rest of the members of the media.
Other groups now prohibited from field access in 2020, according to the updated game day protocols, include network sideline reporters and pregame TV reporters.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 19, 2020
So ... see you guys from the stands on Sunday mornings.
Even though we’ve all been preparing for football to look drastically different, it’s still going to be a shock to the system when opening day finally arrives.
