Marlins Game Cancelled; Magic Might Not Be Tape Delayed Tonight 

Post#1 » by Howard Mass » Mon Jul 27, 2020 1:52 pm

This could lead to more sports having to be in a bubble.

On a side note, with The Marlins not playing tonight, The Magic might no longer be tape delayed on FS Florida for their scrimmage against The Nuggets tonight.

I never saw how other sports had a chance without resorting to a controlled environment like the NBA has with the bubble. For sports like the NFL with larger roster sizes that may result in them quarantining divisions in separate cities and only playing an in division schedule, but that's sacrifices they will have to make if they want a chance at playing in the fall.

College sports and especially college football doesn't have a chance imo.

MLB never stood a chance with the way they were testing and without isolating players. I imagine it will be worse in NFL locker rooms unless there is daily testing with quick turnaround results; and even then, I'm dubious unless you isolate players after games and practices. All it takes is one player to introduce the virus into the locker room. I'm not sure how MLB didn't foresee this happening.

As mentioned, the way the MLB handled this so far or should I say not handled it, it was a matter of time that teams would get infected. They will have to cancel the MLB season. Basketball is probably the only stick and ball sport able to pull of a bubble type environment, and who knows it may not work when it's said and done, MLS is doing a poor man's version of the NBA bubble to mixed results. The other sports that can be go on is autoracing as they have done for months.
