Confined to the house and forced to participate in a virtual way in the repechage of the NFL, the general manager of the Seattle Seahawks, John Schneider has taken great efforts to keep abreast of all developments by installing 25 televisions in the dining room.
“I’m not going to lie: I’ve put people to work with us to bring down some of the walls. At the time where we must adhere to the social distancing, it was definitely a challenge,” he said Wednesday, according to the daily “The News Tribune”.
“I’m a very visual person, so everything is there in case things go wrong from the technological point of view. I think there is, I don’t know, about 25 screens. But I love the interaction in head-to-head. I love that I can just, you know, have private conversations with [head coach] Pete [Carroll] throughout the draft process.”
The draft will take place from Thursday to Saturday. Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, commissioner Roger Goodell will announce himself on the selections, well installed in his basement.
