European football in many countries finished and is finishing their seasons without bubbles. I know they have flattened the curve better than American's but the bubble while good doesn't mean without a bubble is impossible.


Good point moose. I think the issue that complicates it for baseball is that they play everyday. More chances for players who are infected to pass it along.

I hoping it works out, but I really don't think baseball finishes 60 games and the playoffs.


Players need to behave and follow rules. If soccer players can follow the rules I don't see why MLB and NBA also can't.


haha...this is America... We can't get everyone to wear a mask to save lives. How are you going to get players who aren't in a 'bubble' for their sport to always do the right thing?

They can do as they want, but I don't have to watch.


Quite true. You don't have to watch. Just curious, but what are you going to do about baseball if Aaron Judge takes a knee tonight?


I'll turn it on at 7:05 which would be after the anthem. I don't think he will though.

Had this same conversation with a friend about an hour ago. I wonder if Manfred will finally get canned after baseball is the one sport that can't finish its season because they didn't decide to play in a "bubble".


Baseball is the one season that can't finish its season?
Stay tuned to football, that goes into early February, so covid-19 mixes in with the flu season. Not worried about september and october, but starting November I'll be getting very nervous. Gotta pray for a vaccine very soon, one that can kill the mutation as well.

I can't take the heat and always want september to get here, but this year I'm in no rush. Let summer take its sweet time.

Could be a possibility that in the future that we'll only have sports in the spring, summer, and fall, but nothing in the winter.


Definitely possible. But I think Football has the best chance to make it work outside of a 'bubble' environment because they only play once a week. You can have a charter flight to and from away games on the same day. Its clearly a disadvantage for the road team, but what are you going to do? Its not a normal season anyway.

Question with football is WILL they do what it takes to make it work? Definitely fair to be pessimistic about that.

I can't stop them, so what the hell you want me to do about it?
Only thing in my power is to not watch the anthem.

I will never ever agree with kneeling against my flag/country no matter the bs excuse. You want to protest police brutality, do it a different way.
You're never going to change my belief so don't try to.

I hope the head idiots of the nfl listen to the medical and staffs. Glad there's not going to be even 2 nfl preseason games, less chance to catch the virus for the players.

Also needs to be mentioned what if its a false positive? Joey Gallo tested positive twice and negative twice over a short period. Soto might get 2 quick negative tests and then by rule he's eligible again. It's all over the place.

Not trying to change your mind. Just want to understand where your threshold is for boycotting/not watching. I think I've got it now.

I believe a player must quarantine for 14 days after testing positive, and in addition test negative twice before returning.

Yeah. I agree completely. It was the right move to dump all preseason games. Doing that gives me hope they will get the rest of it right. Once college football bails on playing in the fall they should move the Thursday and Monday night games to Saturday so testing can be more consistent.
