(NYPost)   Tampa Bay Lightning players and staff shut down camp after positive COVID test. Add that to the Phillies, the UT Longhorns and others... there is no way we are going to see sports this year   (nypost.com) divider line

Nope, because y'all didn't do enough soon enough. Almost all developed countries have successfully flattened the curve, but 'muricans are too selfish to do what was required. States were reopening before they had a clue about where the 'rona was and how it was transmitting. Now places like Florida and Arizona are paying a heavy price.

Live sports are returning in civilized countries. Third world shiatholes that don't have the required citizen support systems in place don't get to enjoy nice things.

Florida and Arizona are self-inflicted wounds.

The headline is incorrect. We  will see sports this year. It will be a huge shiatshow with lots and lots of infections. THEN the season will get canceled. We're americans - doing it right or having consensus is just not how we work.

Yeah, that's pretty much it.

Of course, especially NFL. It's all a fake hoax.

desertgeek: the Toronto Sun is reporting that Auston Matthews has tested positive for COVID


Yeah, doesn't say when though.  Probably earlier this month if the July 10 timeline in correct.

A Bruins player tested positive. It was not said which one.

I wonder how the NBA feels, seeing the infection rate in Florida.

And nothing of value was lost.  Except the chance for the Bruins to redeem themselves.

But the SEC's top experts assured everyone that COVID cases wouldn't spike until after Thanksgiving because foobaw.

There's a report out that a Maple Leafs player also tested positive

So far, auto racing appears to have it right.  Golf seems reasonably able to be done safe.  I think Tennis will be ok.  The problem is team sports with physical contact.  NBA, NFL, NHL, all are larger number of players with physical contact.  Any infection basically can run wild and takeout a team for a couple weeks damaging any scheduling.  Soccer so far has been able to get going in Europe so it may be ok. Baseball has a chance as the Korean and Japanese leagues are going but they got to figure out the structure of the deal.

There will sports this fall and winter.  Maybe not all of them, but there will be live competitions to watch.

Rugby's restarted in a couple of countries (one of them because the nation has virtually eliminated the virus). Australian Rules Football paused for a couple of months, but has restarted too.

Team competition is possible, but you need to take a shiatton of precautions.

Wow, racing, golf and tennis. Woo-hoo. Might help with Saturday or Sunday afternoon naps.
