    Every single athlete in every single sport is way over-paid. None of them deserve half of the money they get and many do not deserve 1/10th of the money they get. I hope all professional sports die this season.

    Players need to jump on the 76 game season with 75% of salary guaranteed.

    Owners are bending over backwards.

    This is why I like College Football much better than the Pro game. The college kids are trying to get to that mountain of money. The financial difference between being selected #1 or in the first round of the draft, or being selected in the 3rd round can be astronomical. Millions are at stake here. The College kids give it their all to get to the top of the class. Pros could care less.

    This is killing me, yaíll can hate on baseball all you want, admittedly I donít watch a ton of games other than cards being on tv most nights as backround noise but I love capping and betting bases and it tragic these idiots gonna kill the sport.

    Yaíll blaming only the players crazy. The owners are every bit as much at fault if not more. So what if they lose some money playing this year? Their equity in the team will continue to rise like clockwork! Part of ownership is the risk involved, you reap the rewards so all a sudden you faced with a down year and now you want players to share in the hardships? I donít see them offering players more when value of teams skyrockets! Both sides retarded and if they screw this up and donít play not only will there be no more monster contracts for players but those owners are gonna find the value of theirs teams for the 1st time I can recall taking a dive! Fuckem all, I just want baseball back cause capping it one my favorite hobbies!!!

    Would like to see it back as well Banker but highly doubtful at this point. Some upper level Execs for the Brewers got furloughed last week. Interesting timing since they worked solidly up to that point. The fact that they are furloughed now - Not a good sign...

    They already have agreed to pro rated salaries. Everything right now is just posturing by both sides trying get the most each can. At worst we will get a 45 game season. The agreement wth the pro rated salaries will get used. Owners will only wanna play 45 games and playoffs. Only reason it has been said already is because owners holding out hope players will take another pay cut. Owners would also like 8 teams each division in the playoffs but I doubt the players give them that if the owners don't give something to them.
    Looks like 45 games or so with same amount of teams in playoffs. Once the new collective bargaining agreement is up next year expect a long streak..at least a season

    I keep reading this but then I also keep reading the season is in jeopardy. How can it be with this in place? Why wouldn't the odds to have a season be at -100000 and not -300. Also, they've already worked out all the safety stuff for the virus so it's no that.

    Not sure? Maybe the players can say they don't feel safe at the end of the day? Or maybe the owners really don't want a season? I tonight at least 45 games though by what I've heard for the mlb reporters

    If they do play I expect it would be in a couple of good weather locations without fans such as Arizona or Florida, therefore weather into the fall wouldn't be much of a problem.

    They have already said they will play at home ballparks. The players wanted nothing to do with a bubble type location. Games will be played at mlb parks in each team stadiums. If only 45 or so games it will be againt division only. No interleague or stuff like that. Gonna be a sprint to the playoffs

    I donít think there will be any sports. They might get close to starting up or start up but the way the virus is so easily spread theyíll end up cancelling.

    I havenít looked overseas at how itís working over there. Yes youíre right about golf they should be fine. I was mainly talking about big 4. I just donít see it getting to completion. Unless they just simply keep going and corona virus players get shut down but then in that case the product could suffer if another good players get it or it could be very tough to bet

    The leagues could give it shit if it is tough to bet or product looks different. Only thing that matters is the tv money they get for completing the playoffs and crowning a champion. They will do what they have to get that money

    I hope baseball is cancelled. Owners need to break the union, get a salary cap/floor and come back fresh next season or 2022.

    No because playing a game with an orange ball going through a basket is different than fighting inequality. Wars were fought to protect freedom so should people who were drafted not fight because they could die?
