    Seems like a disaster waiting to happen without a vaccine but of course I'll watch and hope no one dies

    They should take the last 8 champions and just do a playoff for the title

    And I presume getting insurance is going to be a fucking disaster.

    I have a hard time seeing how it's possible to have a season without a vaccine.

    What if we just fielded teams out of people who had confirmed cases it would be amazing

    I would like to have Donovan Mitchell

    Schools with football were already having a pretty hard time as it is getting insurance that would cover football.

    I could see the pros doing something radical like taking over an area near a stadium and locking down all access. Nobody in or out. Hard to see that w college.

    In five months, rapid and widely available testing will probably (hopefully) be in place. If they play the games with an extremely limited number of people in the stadiums they should be able to test everyone that walks through the gate.

    Pretty easy to see though that unless all of the stadiums have airtight security, an untested corona positive person will make it through the gate somewhere and get the season cancelled. :feelsbadman:

    Fall 2021 is unrealistic. I’ve been practicing social distancing and left my house only twice since March 17, so I’m doing my part. I think people will just say screw it at some point.

    It's not going to be full quarantine until fall 2021. Concerts/sporting events in large stadiums with fans is the last frontier with this. Society will be restarted gradually, with offices/movie theaters/small restaurants/small bars/outdoor park areas being first. Packing 80,000-110,000 in a football stadium is what fall 2021 would represent.

    Maybe it’s a being in a big enough city thing, but where I struggle is seeing how the large stadiums differ from those things mentioned. If you open up big cities around the globe, it’s hard to do that gradually, and you then have packed metros, streets, parks, etc, with hundreds of thousands of people coming into contact anyway.

    Yep. Packed metro trains or buses will be just as bad as a packed stadium.

    Also if you ban tailgates and limit pre-game shenanigans, it’s not like every person comes into contact with each other. You’re generally at your seat facing forward for the duration of the game.

    Just doing my part to talk it into existence.

    I don’t know, maybe block entry to the tailgate spots. It’s been illegal in Ontario for years with no problem enforcing it.

    Anyway, I’m more of the idea guy - not the implementation guy.

    If you block entry to the places where people tailgate at football games then no one can attend the game because there won't be anywhere to park

    Unblock them ~1 hour before game time.

    You’re likely not wrong. TBH I’d be happy with just hockey, basketball and soccer coming back “soon”, especially since football has the biggest hurdles to climb in overcoming this.

    Hundreds of thousands of people don’t go to the same park at the same time, nor do they walk the same streets or take the subway car. Plus I’m in a big city with very little metro usage anyway. But there’s a difference between a few thousand moving and milling around and being confined in a 70,000-80,000 seat stadium for threeish hours, then moving around with those few thousand before and after the fact.

    Now that ADs have said how reliant on CFB and CBB they are, it’s time for the players to empower themselves. When football does return, no one should play.

    Welp that all but pushes back the season officially as quarter system schools dont have kids on campus until the 3rd or 4th week of the season. And all those schools are doing summer school online.

    Best case scenario for CFB is for a March - May season. Most of the top draft eligible players probably sit out to prepare for the Draft but such is life. No idea what you do about CBB. Probably has to be the same deal.
