Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

I don’t understand why these local advertisers on the local RSNs wouldn’t want thousands more eyeballs on their ads. Pirates are blacked out for me, but I go to Pittsburgh to see games. Wouldn’t Pittsburgh businesses want Ohio viewers to see their ads? What am I not understanding? The Pittsburgh RS...

A repeat of “anyone who wants a test (vaccine) can get one” is likely And if the timing is such that come Election Day, all the politici...

We’re also going to see a lot of mid-level programs fold when their “travel to OSU or Alabama and get paid $1 million to lose” business strategy collapses on itself

School openings are basically a gigantic house of cards. We are doing tons of work to make our own campus as safe and compliant as possible, but one small outbreak and the whole thing falls apart.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Is the record keeping of the testing sophisticated enough to parse unique cases from the overall group? In other words, if the same person is tested multiple times, is it counting each of those times as a positive/negative, or do repeat tests get eliminated from the statistics? Example: Let's say I ...

If MLB and the other sports can’t avoid COVID cases (with all their precautions, testing, etc) how do we think sending kids back to school will work? Ugh

Changing the Indians and Braves seems silly. Something like 90% of Native Americans aren't even offended by Redskins
