Have you seen the stats coming out of Florida?

Yes, I have.  It's unfortunate but still trails California and New York and Texas is right behind them.  IDK, might have something to do with Population but I'm not a scientisiteist

What in the world is going on over there? Sport all over Europe pretty much went off without a hitch - most soccer leagues have just finished up. Just copy the Germans. Always copy the Germa

no one could have predicted this....

Fitting that Derek Jeter would ruin all of sports and, by extension, America.

sh*tting on other states is always silly, but good lord the northeast has zero room to talk about anything here.

Actually, you're way off base.  NY has been doing far better after the initial surge.  Florida just keeps getting worse and worse.  The chart below tells a chilling story.

Florida is testing a lot more than it was a month ago with people returning to the office and schools potentially reopening. The mortality rate thankfully remains relatively low and the average age of a positive case is like 37.

Yes. What’s the mortality rate currently?

There's something between dead and asymptomatic.  You can't play football if you get it for at least a couple of weeks.

Yankees-Phillies cancelled now too.

What does MLB do if an entire 4 game series is cancelled in July?  Do they play it eventually?  Is winning percentage going to decide playoff berths if teams don't play the exact same number of games?

Oh I thought it was because we are stupid.

Everyone could be doing more obviously, but the typical look at Florida stuff is tiring. Turn on the news in NY. It isn’t exactly good.

Let’s just say it’s not a surprise a team in Florida had this happen.  And the nba restart I can’t wait to see that turn into a debacle

Average age and mortality rate in Florida paints a different picture. The initial panic in NY/NJ with the nursing homes is what caused a lot of the issues. Florida has separated seniors who test positive from living assisted places.

I don't believe anyone has thought that far out. They are kind of winging it.

MLB players didn’t want the bubble because they wanted to see their families. Now they’re putting hotel people at risk, clubhouse personnel at risk, and their families at risk. It’s insanity. Like biking uphill into 40 MPH winds.

Not entirely true. MLB owners realized that in order to maximize revenue, they could still receive local signage revenue by playing in home parks. At least that was part of it.

Blame on both sides.

19 teams have players who have tested positive, all 19 teams play in Florida.

Agreed. It's a tough ask, but you are going to make millions of a dollars. Just go into a bubble for 3 months. Players that wanted to opt out of that could do so and forfeit their salary. 

 

The NFL is going to be far worse. Season lasts 6 months. Players are generally more likely to make dumb decisions. Not good.

Given the opportunity, COVID-19 bats 1.000 with infecting people of any age, gender, race or nationality.  Putting athletes, or any other group, together in close quarters like a dugout or locker room will result in folks contracting the disease.

  • Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that 11 of the 33 players in the Marlins' traveling party and two coaches are COVID positive.

    We learned Monday morning that eight more Marlins players and two coaches tested positive. The Marlins are dealing with an outbreak in their clubhouse, with the potential for wide-ranging implications. The team is still in Philadelphia and Jesse Rogers of ESPN reports that they are waiting on more test results. Their home opener against the Orioles in Miami has been cancelled on Monday. The Marlins are going to have to dip into their 60-man player pool, likely with prospects and minor league coaches, in order to continue the season.
