It's not going to end up mattering because there is no way games are being played in September.
do u think the risk of a kid dying is too high? or just people won't tolerate a few kids being quarantined every week or concerned it will be transferred to coaches/teachers?

lmao

So it's to risky for coaches/teachers, but fine for the team?  :sdeek:

I don't think athletes are at high risk to die. There are plenty of them that would go through a rough illness with possible long-term consequences to lung health, though. Also tons of college football fans would die, along with some coaches and professors.

why would a lot of fans die? im assuming limited or no fans will be allowed in the stadiums.

Limited fans would still crowd sizes between 20,000 and 50,000. I don't think most athletic departments would really want to or even be able to afford to have a football season without fans, either. Moving the games to the spring and hoping a vaccine is available by then would be a much better option.

well you can be assured they will  look at every scenario and potential financial impacts. if they think spring is best then spring is best. but i dont think they think that it is right now. you basically pushing off everything again hoping for something to change. maybe it will but i dont think we have a vaccine by next winter and unless people get really good at wearing masks the infections will continue as a slow burn
