It’s a longstanding tradition for athletes to exchange jerseys after a game.  But it looks like the NFL is putting a stop to that for the upcoming season.

The NFL is banning jersey swapping in an effort to prevent exposure to coronavirus.  In addition to that, they are also placing a ban on post-game player interaction without at least six feet of separation.

Richard Sherman called the ban “a perfect example of NFL thinking in a nutshell”.  Deshaun Watson dismissed the idea as “DAMN SILLY”.

Did I miss something?  Isn’t football a contact sport?  Someone might want to go back and rethink this one.
