  • Let's face it - the NBA and NHL Playoffs will most likely be cancelled. With the situation in the United States getting worse with each passing day, it is currently unknown for how long this will continue - it may continue well into June-July or maybe even August-September in the worst case scenario. Pushing the Playoffs into September-October means rearranging the 2020-21 calendar, meaning that the NBA will have to squeeze an 82-game schedule for the next season so they can begin the playoffs for the previous one. The same goes for the European football leagues - I can't see the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and others resuming play by June or July when it is unknown when the peak of the pandemic will occour (specifically in Spain and Italy which suffered the worst). Yesterday Belgium cancelled its top football division and declared the current standings as final with other leagues (the Scottish and Dutch top divisions) pondering the same. The reason why the top European leagues aren't even remotely considering this is because of the broadcasting revenue they'll lose if the league seasons don't resume/finish. But now the people in charge are faced with the moral question - The health and lives of the athletes and other personnel or the money? We all know that the sports organizations are first and foremost business enterprises and they would want any penny as possible. But in times of global pandemic (this is the biggest pandemic since the Spanish flu a century ago) the money aspect is irrelevant. It will be a hypocricy if sports leagues resume play, while people keep dying in hundreds per day from the virus. I think the IOC for example did the right thing by postponing the Tokyo Olympics for 2021.
