Bad timing is an understatement but the NFL doesn’t care and it’s full steam ahead with the schedule that’s been set. These games will be played at the designated time and day because it’s all about getting the product on TV in the prime viewing windows. So what if half the coaches and some key players can’t be there, the league doesn’t care.
Why can’t coordinators, who are usually in the booth upstairs and not on the sidelines, call plays from outside the stadium? Like, through a video feed of the game. The technology is there for it. Seems this would be an easy solution to the problem.
