The National Association that brings together the protagonists of American football protest against the acclimatization plan proposed by the organization prior to the start of the season.
The National Association of League Players Football (NFLPA) unanimously voted to cancel the 2020 preseason by request, which was sent to the executive committee of the Nfl last Friday.
The aforementioned agency announced it had announced that it planned to hold a preparatory period prior to the start of official action, shortened from four games to two due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The NFL said it held two preseason games to facilitate the COVID-19 tets and provide an abbreviated “acclimatization period” for players to help prevent injury.
In this context, the NFLPA wrote: “The NFL did not offer any medical justification to support its decision to face two preseason games, nor any medical justification to shorten the previously agreed acclimatization period, which is medically recommended to avoid injury during the season. “
The league has yet to publicly respond to the players’ request. The NFL regular season is scheduled to begin on Thursday, September 10.
