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.
