The Sports Impact of COVID-19

Recommended Posts

Watching sporting events from around the country, especially the men/women's NCAA tournaments, with no fans in attendance is going to be one of the weirdest things we've ever experienced. But public safety is the most important thing right now, so I'm glad this is being done. I'm also grateful that we'll still get to see these games played on TV. We could certainly use a distraction even if it's only for a few hours a day.

Officially we have now entered... March Sadness.

 

My school has made the tournament once and they lost by a billion. It's always March Sadness for me.

Any distraction would be nice right about now.

 

Even if it ends up being a replay of a game from last year or two years ago.

Is it feasible to test the layers before each game that they play in the empty arenas?  Is testing a 5-minute, 5-hour, or 5-day type of thing?

From what I understand, it’s a 48 hour waiting period for results

They really should have postponed tonight's games while they were figuring this out.  

 

Sixers tickets that were usually$200+ were going for single digits - and selling.  It ain't right to make your fans make that decision.  Someone's going to buy a $500 center-court lower-level ticket for $41 just because it's a once-in-a-lifetime chance for them - and then get coronavirus, pass it on to their uncle that has had a liver transplant and is on anti-immunal medication, and then watch him die.

Gobert doesn't think he'll contract the Corona Virus, takes his chances and touches every microphone with his hands.

 

Gobert contracted the Corona Virus.

I was confused at first. As of right now, some news reporters are saying temporarely suspended not officially cancelled yet.

Gobert got the karma he kinda deserved, but this is monumental and everything really should just be cancelled
