    Doctor friend of mine told me today that he’s of the personal opinion that there won’t be a football season, absent the release of a vaccine, and which he highly doubts can be ready by then.

    Says that infectious rates will drop with warmer weather, but once fall rolls around, we’ll right back here again, and hence, no football season.

    Again, TIFWIW, but that’s his opinion, and which seemed rather firm.

    KPT / TennTra / IP / VT53 can weigh in on it.

    It's really too early to tell for certain, but I wouldn't make any big plans for the fall just yet.

    barring amazingly good fortune, this is probably true. but I think it is important to take things as they come, so that when it is all over we can pick up where we left off quickly.

    I had hope we were going to try and snuff it out with a good month or two of lock down and heavy testing. doesn't look like we are willing or maybe able to tolerate that.

    With no treatment or vaccine. I think they're saying three major waves before it just becomes another cold virus that we've been exposed to and have natural immunity to it

    The fall spike isn't suppose to be as major as this one though. We should know a lot more in the next few weeks with the amount of testing and studies being done.

    I don't expect to see any major sports again until 2021.

    I think a delayed/shortened season could be a hopefully scenario right now. We'll see.

    May this go the same way the Gruden thread went all those years ago.

    I said net of a million lives were on the line if we didn’t do anything major to respond. Two weeks ago it wasn’t clear that we would at all. Hope I was wrong. Glad we won’t completely find out. Canceling sports is one of those major things.
