All fans waiting anxiously for a concrete timetable for when live sports will return should be feeling awfully nervous following this news.
NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a conference call will with every major sports league commissioner at noon on Saturday.
This can't be a good thing, right?
Aside from the NFL Draft proceeding as planned, sports fans have been delivered buzzkill after buzzkill since the coronavirus crisis began sweeping the globe. Assuming that Trump is as informed as can be about COVID-19, our guess is that this conference will include a discussion about a feasible return date, among other things.
Whatever the case, this call carries significant implications and the sheer unknown of what will be discussed is what makes this news somewhat intimidating.
Coronavirus cases in the United States soared throughout March, and that narrative has continued into the opening week of April. Per reports, a press briefing is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET, so we will likely know what was reviewed shortly after the call's conclusion.
