Realistically, this is the right thing to do. It's tough to put entertainment ahead of public health. There's going to have to be some solution about the economy though, and I don't have a good idea what it'll be. You almost have to postpone everyone's bills since there will be so many people with hourly jobs that are screwed unless they have a healthy emergency fund.

Don't know, just play behind closed doors ?

they are already closing every freaking bar, school, event.   At least let the teams play so we got something to enjoy or we can all sit at home for a month and watch 'Days of our lives' and other crap  all day long.

I hear books are interesting. 🙂 In February I became effectively a full-time telecommuter. Normally that'd be awesome, but it means I have no excuse to not work if they start putting people into quarantine or something. (First-world/privilege problems)

The Sabres Season is probably over. Playoffs with or without fans will probably begin in May if I was a betting person

Great excuse to have long marathon sex sessions...

As a software engineer, I sadly can't get excited about being told to stay home either because they would just tell me to login through the VPN and work remotely...

Same, but it's still better than being in the office

We are definitely not lacking in sources of entertainment in this day and age.  If the common medical advise is to cut back on contact between people as much as possible, having teams of 20 men traveling around two countries, hitting each other, and sweating all over each other probably isn't a great idea with or without an empty arena.  Entertaining us isn't a good enough reason to force them out there.

Just heard this news and I'm angry. I wish their was some politically correct way to make a vaccine and give it high prolific people only so these things continue

Wouldn't it be more important to give it to the people most at risk or do their lives just not count?

What is interesting is to see what happens if the season gets suspended and then resumes at a later date...it will likely alter the outcomes for some teams...and probably change who wins the Cup.

Players who are injured now can get better and come back to play.

Teams on a hot streak or cold streak will basically reset back to equilibrium and it will be the teams that can come together the fastest in a short end of the season push and playoffs that will do the best and it may not be the teams who are the best right now.

If they postpone it, I bet the NHL scraps the last 12 games or so left in the season and just start the playoffs. Stinks if your the Rangers, or Panthers, right on the bubble but that's the way it goes. Of course this is just my opinion. Nobody wants the CUP going till late July or whatever! Heck, I don't even like the CUP being awarded in June. It should end in May.

Not surprised, it's all about slowing the number of new cases.  Our society is in for big changes over the next 30-60 days.  Be safe SS'ers, especially you old tigers.

I bought a ticket for the Sabres @ Montreal March 24 on StubHub a while back. We'll see if they abide by their "If they don't play, you don't pay" promise. It's a real shame 'cause I was ready for some smoked meat on bagels.
