  1. You guys talking sports like 2020 has something left to offer... It does not. USA is hitting the mark I set in the coming few days and after that it is martial law time. Let God be with you guys during these trying times.
  2. Thank you for the great post. Do you have any information have they required other people to work at hospitals etc. situations with corona patients other than doctors and nurses or such? For example have there been requirements for social workers to tend patients or help out on the hospitals instead of doing their normal work in the field of social work.
  3. I have made calculations how this corona thing plays out...in countries (and people) that take it seriously. It is going to hit us hard inside two weeks and then it gets worse...and worse...and worse... Until early May. Then, if proper actions have been inserted, the curve might start to flatten out. Now... USA does NOT look that good right now. The resources and knowledge is all there, but can you pull it together? I´m not betting on late April or early May to be the worst of it there. It might be Summer of Corona. Let see how it plays out. Protect yourselves guys. Protect real good. I´m praying for you.
  4. So... Prediction time. And let us be bold with our predictions like when I drafted Dejounte Murray in the 4th round. They are talking about month or so after league reviews the possibility to continue season. The political will amongst owners is there to complete the season. In a month... USA will be in very bad place with korona. I think the measures taken and the capability to control the situation are among the worst in Western World. The people of US are also very...unrest as far their nature goes. So I'm feeling some of the behavior of masses will be less than optimal. Riots and such will happen. Trump might do something stupid etc. The dead will be in piles, that is for sure. All and all the situation will not be good enough to even think about playing when it is closer to martial law situation in the States. It might be closer to summer when everything is under control. Or more likely well in to the summer. I don't even see it be impossible that the season actually gets shut down completely. I'm gonna go with "Earliest at June but very possible to be cancelled" option. What is your take on the situation?
  5. We have implemented following actions: 1) Coronadraft - You get to re-draft players to replace players that have lost value from the free agent pool when the league resumes play. Draft order will be determined by the amount of value each manager has lost. 2) Corona Compensation - If players are out because of corona, you will get their average fantasy points for every game they miss rest of the way. 3) Banned Players - Players such as Oubre, KAT, Simmons etc. who were injured when season was suspended will be BANNED for rest of the fantasy postseason.
  6. Well Fantrax is very customable so we can easily finish the season if we want with whatever games might be played later. It will not be fair at all, but I already have some ideas about "corona compensation" and injured players like KAT and Simmons suspended rest of the way. Saying that I do not know if there will be games to be played and even if there is would it be worth it to try finish the fantasy season out. I do hate quitting so knowing myself I probably will find a way to get back to it if NBA gets back to it...
  7. I am a Commish and it is a brainscratcher how to continue season from here on out. The problem being how can you guarantee fair and equal if play continues in few weeks? There are going to be all sorts of movements during this time. Half of the league might catch the virus and obviously the injured players coming back etc. Its not going to be fair. We were 2 and ½ weeks away from finishing the season. There is no way the playing field is even remotely same in April or May as it is now. I might just shut it down and call it a season with no winners.
  8. Unfortunately. I have been stashing resources for the last 4 weeks and felt amazingly stupid about it. But now I feel pretty, pretty, preeeeetty smart. I did hope that I could watch NBA basketball and chill after the world goes to shutdown mode, but obviously looking it back now... It was never going to happen. Take care of yourselves managers all around world. We will be back.
  9. Dropped McRae for J-Rich. Owned him last 2-3 seasons... It has been living hell. I do not know why I did this to me again, even when I swore not to take him ever again.
  10. Nets @ Warriors will be played closed doors. First game with no crowd.
  11. It will be only matter of days when NBA shuts down. I think NBA has more progressive leadership than what Big Coward Trump has shown us. They will do it sooner rather than later. Either empty arenas or completely postponing/ending the season.
  12. I was wrong on this guy. Bum and scrub. Drop City.
  13. WARRIOR! HE IS BACK! I needed this, first week of playoffs and he is coming through.
