CORONAVIRUS threatening to end NBA season early?

Recommended Posts

In Germany the plan of starting the Bundesliga (soccer league and the main sports thing here) in middle of May comes more and more alive. Event though this idea is not backed up from the people in germany the DFL want to proceed with the plan to play the games in stadiums without spectators and considering these following points:

 

  • All players are tested on CoVid-19 at least once a week. These tests cost the teams of the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga a total of 2.5 million euros.
  • Clubs must adhere to strict and very specifically formulated hygiene and precautionary measures in the stadium and on the training ground. To this end, each club must appoint a hygiene officer
  • Personalized beverage bottles
  • Temperature control when entering the training area
  • Only every second or third seat should be used on the coach benches
  • No player escort children, no mascots
  • No handshake, no team photos
  • max around 300 people around a game (max 98 inside of the stadium, max 115 grandstand areas including functional rooms, max 109 Stadium outdoor area including TV compound)

 

This whole plan is only possible because there is obviously overcapacity in federal Germany, which is not efficiently distributed to all regions. According to a survey among laboratories, more than 400,000 tests in Germany were not used last week alone.

The politicians getting more and more used to the idea of starting the league so Germany could become the first country to restart a big sports league. Maybe that is a sign and possibility for other leagues as well.

Unfortunately not. For soccer over here they use a stupid system where the value of each week and player is based on grades from different journalists.

Looks like basketball will be back at the end of July. Not sure about fantasy but at least it'll be nice to have games again.

There have been too many people testing positive in all sports and experts are saying we are still in the first wave. Remember, they said earlier this year there will be two waves with the second one being worse so if we are still in the first....
