Odell Beckham Publicly calls on the NFL to cancel the 2020 season … saying it is just too dangerous to play with COVID which is still taking its toll. “I just feel like the season shouldn’t be coming,” Cleveland Browns star told the Wall Street Journal … “And I’m ready for that not to happen and I wouldn’t mind not having it.” “ Importantly, the WSJ interview took place just before the NFLPA reached an agreement with the league over the COVID protocol on July 24 – and Odell attended training camp on July 28. Beckham would not consider retiring often from the 2020 season – and feels more comfortable and confident after seeing COVID protocols at Browns facilities, according to Cleveland.com. Still, Odell’s concerns about the WSJ seem valid enough… he explains why the NFL has much bigger challenges than other professional leagues like the NBA. “Obviously, with everything going on, it just doesn’t make sense why we’re trying to do this. I can understand that basketball was already in the playoffs. “ “Five-on-five basketball in an arena will be more intense than regular season games. Strapping is different from playing an eleven-on-eleven contact sport where there are 80 people in a locker room. “ “We are not ready for the football season. So why are we trying to move forward? “ Beckham suggested that the owners lead the charge to gamble… because they don’t want to waste any money. “It’s obviously value for their money. And it bothers me because there has always been this – and I hate to say it like that – but the owners’ [attitude is], Oh we own you guys, and just a kind of injustice that still doesn’t see us as human. “ Several NFL players have already chosen not to participate in the 2020 season citing COVID issues, including Damien Williams, Marquise Goodwin, Donta Hightower, Marqise Lee, Nate Solder and more.
