I can't think of a worse idea than for Tokyo to insist on holding the Olympics on schedule in the face of what's happening...incredibly selfish and irresponsible. Luckily, it's increasingly looking like the decision is going to be taken out of their hands
They are just saying this for the optics in order to not create even more media panic now. Deep down not even they can believe this.
Spring sports are long gone.
Summer sports, i.e. MLB and olympics, are on life support.
Fall sports... keeping our fingers crossed!

What the hell are we all going to do if there is no football season? Can we still bash MD and Bosco just to maintain some normalcy around here :lol:

Maybe they'll start recruiting elite Madden Online players from the IE.
Don't look at me, I just work here.

Denny Hamlin Edges Dale Earnhardt Jr. To Win Virtual Homestead

NASCAR eased off the brake in the real sports world brought to a sudden halt by the coronavirus and introduced the country to iRacing...which was broadcast live on Fox Sports 1 and called by its regular team of Mike Joy and Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon.

It could serve as a petri dish for other sports to try the whole gamer thing. The classic games that were aired across TV over the weekend will get old in a hurry, and networks are desperate for something fresh until sports resume.

Interesting but there's probably a 12-year-old gamer girl out there who could kick all their butts...

When would be the date of no return for having to cancel the 2020 HSFB season?

What does that mean, can you explain?

I would assume it means that if normal football operations are not up and running by mid June, the season would not happen. Even if we do start then I would guess the season could be delayed.
This is all just speculation as nobody really knows. But sadly we must face the reality that there may not be a season.
