I honestly laughed out loud when seeing this. Thousands of folks in this country are getting sick, a lot are dying and all Manfred can think about, in a 13 BILLION dollar industry, is money.
Folks, let's get real here...as Seth Davis tweeted out yesterday, we need to stop asking "if" a player gets sick, it's more like "when." And I've yet to see any league openly discuss what happens then, especially when a team or teams has to be isolated. Right, the Yankees are going to play 80 games, the Reds 74, the White Sox 70 and so on because teams are going to have to be quarantined. Absolute idiocy. The first time a few teams have to be isolated it's over. period...and the league will have wasted more money trying to restart things (then the owners will again bitch about player salaries...)
Tonight by the way Shaq came out and said the NBA needs to simply cancel the season, get healthy and try it again next year. Shaq is a very wise man.
Let this story be a warning to anyone who thinks the leagues will be able to pull this off, maybe they dodge the bullet but I'd hate to bet my life on it:
