The Tennessee Titans are a perfect example of what not to do during a covid-19 outbreak. They had eight people test positive after a game against the Minnesota Vikings, just over a week ago. Right then and there Tennessee should’ve understood the magnitude of the situation and took it serious. But instead the Titans held an unofficial practice at a local high school in the Nashville area. And now 23 players have tested positive for covid-19. What this does is it puts Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk in a bad spot. Because these issues fall more on the G.M Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Vrabel since they’re in charge of the day-to-day operations. So Strunk has to ask herself if she wants to side with Robinson and Vrabel who’ve been very successful recently? Or does she want to condemn them for being irresponsible and set a good precedent for her team? Those are just some of the pressures an owner faces when her team in this deep in a scandal. And we all know why that unofficial practice happened. The players didn’t want to fall behind because they’re undefeated right now. But they put a lot peoples’ health in jeopardy. They’ve created too many problems for the league and at the end of the day it’s hurting the NFL’s bottom line. So we know there will be stiff consequences.
