More than 60 percent of all NFL teams were either “under the most extreme risk” or “at risk” of having their games disrupted in the last two weeks, according to a study released Tuesday by the National Association of League and Sports Business Officials (NALLS).
The study found that 28 teams, including three playoff teams, were either experiencing a “significant” or a “high” level of disruptions in their games, with teams experiencing at least one disruption every 10 days.
The NALLS study also found that some teams, such as the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders, had their games postponed multiple times.
“We expect the full scope of the disruption will be seen on Thursday night,” NALPSO Commissioner Mike Morrissette said in a statement.
“However, there are some important lessons to be learned from this study and from previous data we have gathered from other leagues.
The key to a successful NFL season is a healthy, coordinated, and coordinated approach to all the players and teams, and this includes our players and coaches.”
A full-time, six-person team of NFL officials and managers will review the league’s contingency plans for Wednesday’s games, which are expected to be the busiest of the year.NALPSOs will review a list of potential scenarios for disruption, such the possibility that a player or team is experiencing a significant disruption.
The league’s response to these potential disruptions will include detailed contingency plans to be issued to all teams, according the report.
The report noted that the NFL has taken steps to ensure that players are protected from physical harm during the disruptions.
The NFL has also taken additional measures to ensure the safety of players and the game, the report said.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is urging players and owners to continue to stay vigilant and take steps to avoid disruptions.
