    Very good question. And we tend to assume large in-person audiences will be back just like the old days, but if this virus goes through several surges, that may not happen until there is a serum antibody test (a quick way to find out if you have antibodies and are immune). They say that takes over a year. Once there is herd immunity we can have herds again, but how long will that take?

    Do we become a TV sport before then, starting and ending with ESPN money? ESPN has a heck of a reshuffling to do, also, like so many other businesses. Will they be renegotiating all their contracts at once?

    we will be busing to all away games, don't forget we will also be losing the big P5 pay day game.

    lets hope in July there isn't a spike of the virus in Butte Montana, that could put us on hold.

    Or no crowds? Seriously, in your humble opinion, would they or could they or should they play a season on TV? There would be big audiences...

    China had a resurge so they closed the movie theaters again. Also people in China are testing positive a second time. Which is why the FDA takes years to approve a medicine.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    I'm gonna take a break from being the Chicken Little guy and mention that pretty much all researchers believe the second positive tests to be the result of testing errors, not reinfection. Reinfection can only occur with a pretty sizable mutation of the virus, and this is widely believed to be a slowly mutating virus, not a quickly mutating one.

    Some good news this morning, relatively speaking. Abbott Labs has announced a quick cheap test that will give results in 15 minutes, to be available in a few weeks. Also, contrary to the expert I quoted above who said serum antibody tests would take a year to produce, it turns out they already exist. It isn't that hard these days. These are the tests that tell you if you are immune to the virus. Crowds can gather once that level is high enough. About 70%. Add in a vaccine in a year or so and we should be back to a flu type situation.
