Au contraire. There is too much money on the line to try. If players getting sick leads to them retiring earlier or playing at a lower level for years to come, why would you gamble the future of your sport for quick cash? You need vets more than ever, because the college kids coming in will have missed a major developmental year, so the quality of rookies in all sports will be diminished.
You are way overthinking this.

Maybe, but I guarantee you there are agents telling this to their clients and FO execs voicing these concerns to the powers-that-be.

I would bet that baseball is saving hundreds of lives across the country, and lowering crime. People are sooooo bored and now they have something to do, instead of being on the streets looking to make trouble.
Erm, baseball?

I believe so. At least to an extent. Basketball even more.

Watching sports at home is certainly safer than protesting in the streets out of sheer boredom.

Watched one game (mlb) this year so far. No fans makes it seem like a practice game. At least have a soundtrack in the background.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

For the actual games they started playing a soundtrack from sonys playstation game think it's the show. Also Virtual fans that react to the gameplay

Interesting to see a disproportionate number of Patriots opting out of this season. Any hypotheses why?
Most of those players opting out have more than 1 ring plus they made millions

Given what's happened in Miami, Philly, and now apparently St. Louis, I'm thinking that the season is about a week away from imploding.

Ironically, the Marlins only have one loss. I imagine if we go another week, they'll probably still be the only 1-loss team in the majors :)

If a full contact sport like baseball has managed to play without any virus issues, a socially-distanced sport like football should have no problems at all.

Because the NFL really cares about the health of their players...

Maybe it is not the sport but the approach to it? We have the NHL and NBA going the bubble route. Lets see how that plays out.
