Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is extending an offer to every NFL team whose state is affected by the lockdown.
Thursday, DeSantis said that he is reaching out to commissioners of professional sports leagues to let them know that those teams will have an opportunity to play in Florida.
“If you have a team in a league in an area that just won’t operate, we’ll find a place for them here in Florida,” DeSantis said.
“Our people are starved to have some of this back in our lives,” DeSantis said. “I think we can certainly do it in a way that’s safe.”
This is certainly interesting when you figure in all of the states who are still taking precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19. I certainly want to see sports back again. Is this the way to do it? I certainly don’t think so. When you consider all of the teams may have to go down to Florida, it would just be a logistical mass. For example, I would love to see a NFL schedule that would be able to accommodate multiple teams. Depending on the amount of teams and games there are, it could make for a hectic Sunday.
I get the fact that DeSantis says that there will be room for everybody in the state to do it safety. I’d like to see logistics on how it would actually work. With money losses abound, a bunch of teams will probably want to go down there. How would the state of Florida make it all happen? It sounds good in theory, but can it actually get done? As the old saying goes, nothing ever goes according to plan.
It would certainly be something different than what were used to. I doubt that it’s going to work, but I have been wrong before. If I’m wrong again, then so be it. I would certainly be open to watching sports again. If the state of Florida can get the job done then that would certainly be beneficial for many. However, it sounds more like a pipe dream than reality.
