    How confident are you NHL, NBA and NFL will resume even without fans

    I just don't see it. One player tests positive and chain reaction begins again.

    Golf and Tennis might be the only sports safe to play for the next year.

    Ya, team sports could be screwed until a vaccine is developed.
    The international effort in that regard, right now, is unprecedented.
    I'm hopeful...

    Based on what? It sounds like many of the players are sceptical of playing even without fans during this pandemic. Even Marc Cuban said he will absolutely not open the practice facility until it's safe.

    IMO;

    NHL = Will start next season on time (fan attendance limited to 50%)
    NBA = Same as NHL
    NFL=Same
    MLB = Start spring training in June; regular season in July (no fan attendance)
    Coll Foot = I'm clueless

    One more optimistic note: I just got an email from the gym, at least saying "when we open please use social distancing on the treadmills."

    I took it that an opening might be coming soon, along with banks re-opening as well.

    I don't think there's any reason all sports shouldn't resume soon without fans.

    The players and their families just need to be responsible at home and teams should lay down some rules & restrictions.

    NBA and NHL are getting less likely everyday they refuse to take a stand and play
    MLB seems to want to do something this Summer
    NFL seems to still be on track to start season as normal
    College sports not likely

    If any sports plan on shutting back down if they have players test positive, they may as well just not even start seasons, because there are going to be people testing positive forever or till a vaccine is made,jmo

    later

    Time for these overpaid prima donnas to get off their asses and move forward with their patriotic duty of bringing normality back to this country. Players talking about they don't want to be away from their families. You're going to have the rest of your fukking lives to be around your families when you retire at 35 with an overloaded bank account. Give Vince McMahon a call and ask him how he's been able to keep this going during the entire pandemic period with no hiccups.

    I heard the mlb plan, but they will be the hardest to resume. They need fans in the stands. Plus it hasnít even started too many games with too many players.

    NBA is making excuses.

    NHL same boat as NBa.

    NFL should be the easiest to play I would think.

    NBA/nhl need to go straight to a playoff with 20 or 24 teams. No point in bringing back the bottom feeders.

    At this point, I only think the nfl may resume.

    I would be fine if nba nhl had their tournament in a few months and started after the first of the year the new season (shortened of course)

    College sports may as well kiss goodbye for now

    When the leagues start implementing significant pay cuts to players, suddenly the players will want to try to play..

    Team sports, 1% for anytime in 2020. I think the chances of any NFL games being played this year are slim to none.

    A 19 million dollar payment to the Trump campaign and the worst ratings in WWE history.

    The leagues might need to find a better example.

    Boxing, MMA and Tennis are still having problems resuming now.

    So not confident at all NBA, NFL and NHL are any where close to resuming.. Those are contact in your face team sports.. A year away probably.

    MLB might have a chance though..

    I mean, they should be able to play a golf tournament, right?

    That's one thing I don't understand.
