Update (1155ET): Following Dr. Fauci's fearmongering yesterday that football may not be back in America this year, President Trump has spoken (well tweeted) up:

"Tony Fauci has nothing to do with NFL Football. They are planning a very safe and controlled opening."

And then added, just stirring the political pot further:

"However, if they don’t stand for our National Anthem and our Great American Flag, I won’t be watching!!!"

And cue the outrage mob!

Just when you thought it was safe to socially-distanced, mask-wearing venture outdoors, and just a day after the English Premier League soccer reopened from its lockdown, America's 'Dr.Doom' - Dr. Anthony Fauci - told CNN that the NFL may not happen this year...

“Unless players are essentially in a bubble – insulated from the community and they are tested nearly every day – it would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall.”

We wonder what the league will have to say about his warnings? How many players in the NFL have comorbidities? How many players in the NFL are over 50?

Perhaps Dr.Fauci needs to look at some different 'science'.
