The NFL announced that they will be resuming their season but with a permanent change. The NFL will now strictly be played in the flag football format. This is intended to protect the players from contracting Covid-19.
The new rule will go into effect immediately. A few players are criticizing the change, but most are in support of the new rule. Most players in support of the change are excited to be back on the field. They also claim they don’t want to catch Covid-19, so they’ll support playing flag football.
Tom Brady is one of the players who’s excited for the new flag football rule. In an interview earlier today, he mentioned that he’s excited about not being sacked or tackled because he often gets several boo-boos.
Other players are still petitioning for additional changes. Some are even as going as far as requesting the NFL to completely move to Madden on the Playstation 4. With a move to the PS4, players will feel like they are in their “safe space”, so they’ll be able to perform at their best.
