Super Bowl Could Be Pushed To March

October 21st, 2020

Joe is writing the following because the Super Bowl is scheduled to be played at the Den of Depression in February. And, because the Bucs are gunning to be the first team to play in and host a Super Bowl.

Per John Breech of CBS Sports, Packers president Mark Murphy spoke at a Packers fan rally in Tampa and said the NFL could push the Super Bowl back to March if further scheduling changes due to COVID-19 pop as they have the past few weeks.

The Super Bowl is currently scheduled for Feb. 7, 2021.

Murphy added a March date would be a worst-case option. Previously, Michael Silver of reported the NFL had contingency plans to play the Super Bowl later than scheduled if the regular season or postseason schedule is further twisted due to postponements.

Already the Super Bowl has a normal bye built-in for the Sunday prior to the game when the Pro Bowl is normally played. The 2021 Pro Bowl was canceled last week.

Also last week speaking with Chris “Mad Dog” Russo of SiriusXM Radio, columnist Ira Kaufman told Russo he spoke to to Derrick Brooks about this. Brooks serves as a member of the Super Bowl LV host committee.

Per Ira, Brooks said the NFL has yet to ask the committee to push back the date of the Super Bowl but the committee would be amendable to a postponement, if necessary.

    So dumb!! This is no worse than the flu and even less worrisome than the flu to kids and up to about 38 years old … Anyone in those ages will get right through it!! These lock downs and masks and all that shows how gullible humans are and how they will give up all their freedoms and happiness for the ILLUSION of safety!!! I live in a small town in Tennessee but there still a lot of people, just not like Nashville… NOBODY around here wears masks and NOTHING around here has changed much… We haven’t all died and in fact this is probably one of the least affected places in this state!!!! …. Most the country are sheep!! While the rest of the world are having protests against the masks and the attempted change to a “new normal” people here in America protest an imaginary problem in racism!! TDS is a real thing and has EVERYTHING to do with what’s going on and it’s sickening to see how many sheep there are in this world!!! …. If you give up freedom for security, you deserve neither and will receive neither!!!
