Do you see a 2020 season happening?

I just donít know how they can pull it off even with empty stadiums. It would completely change the game as we know it without fans.
Good news came out today that New Orleans death and case rate are leveling off but many states were way behind us with the stay at home orders.
NBA and MLB were concerned enough to cancel or postpone their seasons forgoing millions of dollars which isnít chump change.
There are a lot of unknown still but this thing could very well come back in the fall although by then I expect more rapid testing and treatment.
It would be a shame for Brees and Brady.
I expect without OTAs and an abbreviated training camp we would see a lot more injury.
Maybe too early to speculate but it ainít looking good.

Where is Coach Pete when you need him.

If they cant conduct rookie, mini or summer camps, I dont see how it would happen.

Re: Do you see a 2020 season happening?

If Training Camp starts on time, everything will happen as planned; the rest of it helps, but getting as many weeks of TC will be the key to starting on-time...

There's a predicted second wave of this Covid-19 Corona Virus planned to hit in the Fall, that could cause a pause in the season of 2-3 weeks...

Good news is that the death rate and case rate in NYC saw a slight dip for the second day, indicating that we may be seeing a plateau...

Stay positive...

If any state with a team still has restrictions on large social gatherings then the whole league is still shut down. I just donít see how this whole thing will be eradicated country-wide in the next couple months when many states arenít even enforcing stay at home orders.

Re: Do you see a 2020 season happening?

We need to keep tabs on the sports leagues in Asia and Europe to see how things work out for them over this spring or summer. If some of those try to restart and end up having to stop, then it won't look good. Hoping we can get the season in, even if let's say the first 6 weeks have to be empty stadium games.

The season will happen.

Country is going to be back to normal by June. IFR estimates are falling dramatically and we are already showing signs of plateau across all states.

Once IFR is actually established this might only be slightly worse than the flu. Unfortunately, those it does impact are the most vulnerable with pre-existing conditions.

There are ways to conduct anything safely. All a team has to do is sequester the players for 15 days and administer tests before any camp to make sure anyone attending isn't infected and then have camp.

If the league and players want to earn a living they need to go to work.

They will survive. In the days of Jim Brown, just how long was the off season? Certainly not like it was in 2019 for what they plan in activities, right?

We had 1100 deaths yesterday in the US and 25,000 new cases.
People are still going churches and beaches. No plateau until people wisen the f*** up.
