---------------------------- the virus is out there in the general population and will not go away even after a vaccine is developed. Most viruses mutate, a lot, this one already has and vaccine’s are usually partially effective and have to be tuned each year to counter mutations.
We know that the young and healthy are the least in danger in our population. So, with the parents permissions and lots of “promises not to sue if this turns out bad”, why don’t they expose the entire team to the virus, quarantine them for two weeks, and THEN start practicing. The coaches, caterers, staff, etc. then take the normal precautions to protect themselves from each other (players are virus free and full of anti-bodies so they are not the danger) and we then play ball in front of reduced and distanced crowds. They can spend the two weeks in zoom meetings with coaches, weight lifting, passing drills, film watching, etc.
So, instead of spending all season being paranoid that one of the players will get exposed and infect the team before it is caught, just eliminate that from the equation. Could something bad happen to some of the players, probably at about the rate that heart murmurs, injuries, accidents, the regular flu, and other illnesses take down players. Not risk free but it could be within normal bounds.
Is this really crazy?
