It's looking like the "every sports season will dEfInItElY be cancelled crowd" shot their wads a little prematurely. 

Baseball is not looking promising at this point.

That's because of contract issues not because of COVID related fears. 

The contract issues come with having the season delayed by COVID no?  That was my point.

The bigger question is whether professional leagues will allow some teams to play in front of fans while others cannot.

Correct. 

I would like to see an all or nothing approach - either every team can have some fans in the stands or none of them can.

I hear Ireland is going to resume being pale, pasty and unathletic on July 1st. @T0mShane can you confirm? You still have relatives that are conscious some of the time back home?

Italian soccer stars can play through anything because chain-smoking cigarettes while kicking a ball wards off germs

I respectfully disagree. Every state is at a different level of severity in this and if a Texas wants to open up their stadiums/arenas that’s fine. Why should they have to wait for New York to be ready?

Because home teams in Texas would presumably inherit an unfair competitive advantage over home teams in New York.

It has nothing to do with COVID. This would be an NFL stipulation to ensure that all 32 teams are playing under the same set of circumstances.

They’re playing away games anyway though so they’re already supposed to be in a hostile environment. If certain teams can’t have fans the rest of the league shouldn’t be held back.

Debatable. 

I wouldn't be too bothered either way, but I like the idea of keeping things equitable.

Sure, but a number of us have been saying for weeks that the NFL has a great shot to have some kind of season. 

Yes it does, but these announcements are nothing more than optimistic plans. We have no idea what landscape will be like in September let alone December. NFL season could get started and this thing could really ramp back up in the middle of the season and force a shutdown like it did in NBA and NHL.

Playing field must be equal.

Just let the fans decide if they want to attend or not. Under 50 and healthy you have a greater chance of being killed by lightning than by COVID. If you're at risk - 65+ or severe underlining health issues then stay at home.

That’s possible. My guess is that doesn’t happen, but we’ll see.

Yep. And Canada now has some new lockdowns. 

If this continues look for every team to relocate to Texas. 

Waco Phillies

El Paso Bruins 

San Antonio Pistons

Texas is the 2nd largest economy in the US and net exports I believe are #1, beating both CA and NY combined. Texas has the 10th largest economy in the world...

Oh man.  That would suck!  Everything would become as overrated as their college football teams!
