What could the NFL season look like this year with the Coronavirus pandemic? Arthur Blank spoke with NFL writer Peter King and said the league could have a shorter training camp, shorter preseason, players tested daily, and even play without fans.

Dukes & Bell discussed his comments. 

Carl said he doesn’t think that will be the case.

“Games aren’t games without fans. But If you told me I could have football without having fans there and we still got a chance to see guys play, I’d be willing to do that,” Dukes said. “Because again, I don’t think this is going to be long-term and seem like forever as it does today.”

Mike said that he’s not worried about the draft being affected.

“I don’t care how they do the draft, as long as I can follow along and see what teams are doing,” Bell said.
