  • Sports effected by coronavirus

    We already know the NCAA tourneys will be fan-less. The same goes for the remainder of the SEC tournament.

    The MBA has suspended it's season.

    Bama sports will be fan-less through March 30. No word yet on the A Day game.

    There's a lot of rumbling that the NCAA will look at postponing the tourney all together.

        Looks like damn near everything in sports has been cancelled, including The Players Championship. This country has lost it's mind.

          Personally, I don't believe these sports leagues are forgoing billions in revenue out of a politically correct overreaction. I believe they're being given information that is not being publicly disseminated as to the severity and potential severity of the disease. We're already learning - and our government already knew - the Chinese were radically understating infections and deaths, perhaps by a factor of fifty.

            I think it's about law suits and public image. It would look really bad if a family got the virus from Bridgestone arena and carried it to Sarasota. Buncha old folks start dieing and everyone is pointing at Bridgestone as the cause.

                I felt the same... I was supposed to be in ATL for a conference this week. U was happy not to have to go.

                  What we should be realizing here is that China nor Western Europe is our equal when it comes to healthcare much less economics, although there are many intellectual deficits here (corona doesn't cause diarrhea so why in the fuck are people buying toilet paper?).
                  This virus is not as bad as measles is, for instance, because of how many anti vaxxers there are. We need to wash the sand out of our collective vaginas as a country and realize yes, you may get sick, but unless you're old or immunocompromised, youre gonna be fine.

                  This. Is. NOT. The. Plague.

                            What does Vegas do? Someone said there was a spike in betting on WWE.... a scripted entertainment.
