    Sources: Trump says NFL should start on time

    Adam SchefterAdrian Wojnarowski

    In a conference call with major league sports commissioners on Saturday, President Donald Trump said he believes the NFL season should start on time in September, sources familiar with the call told ESPN.

    Trump also said he hopes to have fans back in stadiums and arenas by August and September, sources said, though it is currently unclear if medical experts find that to be a realistic timeline amid the current coronavirus pandemic.

    NBA commissioner Adam Silver told those on the call that the leagues were the first to shut down and that they would love to lead the way in starting the economy once there was an "all clear" from public health officials, sources familiar with the call told ESPN.

    The NBA was the first league to suspend play on March 11.

    Trump also raised the idea of the leagues working together to lobby for tax credits that used to exist for fans, such as the ability to deduct concessions and tickets from taxes, sources said. That would be a way for leagues to jumpstart fans' ability to return to stadiums in a difficult economy.

    The call included 12 major sports commissioners and top executives, including the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball, NHL, Major League Soccer, WNBA, WWE Wrestling, the PGA Tour, UFC, IndyCar, LPGA, and Breeders Cup, according to a White House pool report.

    Even with the headline that he wants the NFL to start on time, hard to see the point of an all-commissioner sports call without having Birx or Fauci on the call. But it’s a great flex for Trump.

    How is it a great flex for him? I must suddenly not know what a flex is.

    This is going to be just like when he was telling the states to re-open for business by Easter and the Governors were like no and he didn't realize for a bit that he had no way to overrule them.

    When asked about whether the NFL would be back in the fall with fans, Gov. Gavin Newsom said: “I’m not anticipating that happening in the state."

    Remember the NFL wouldn't let him buy the Buffalo Bills back in the day. Why he wanted everyone else there is a mystery.
