The NFL is frustrated with the lack of compliance of its coronavirus guidelines and clearly the Raiders are among the top culprits.

The league had a conference call on Monday with all teams and among the changes in the guidelines are that there will be no off-site team gatherings. That news came just minutes after the NFL Network reported that 10 Raiders were fined for not wearing masks at Darren Waller’s fundraiser last Monday night at a country club in Henderson, Nevada.

The Raiders chose not to fine the players, but the NFL levied the fines anyway, ranging from $30,000 to $15,000 each.

This is the third different incident that the Raiders have been fined for violating the NFL’s coronavirus guidelines.

All teams risk suspensions, loss of draft picks and even forfeiting games if issues continue. Raiders’ coach Jon Gruden, who was shown not wearing his mask Sunday against Buffalo, said Monday he thinks his team is doing well and following the guidelines.
