Topics I've Started

Some people watch wrestling

I don't know why the league isn't making more of an effort to broadcast live content involving the clubs and their players.

Couldn't they get a bunch of teams together and do 11v11 on FIFA (with players controlling their virtual likenesses) and do like a digital rivalry week? Or some kind of skills competition involving players in their backyards? Get the apps involved and hand out prizes to fans that predict results correctly.

Just some sort of fresh sporting content. Anything really. And this seems to be a problem for all the sports leagues now. Airing replays of 'classic' games you already know the outcomes of, the mount rushmores...it's all gotten so incredibly stale. Pro wrestling is like the only area that is continuing to pump out original stuff.

The Coronavirus Thread

It looks like the Quakes are going to be the first team to be forced into playing games at an empty stadium, with the Crew likely next (although not yet for their game this weekend). Locker rooms already closed throughout the league.

I'm assuming by early next week the Knicks, Nets, Rangers, Islanders and Devils will be postponing/cancelling/playing in empty arenas, while most of Manhattan and the urban tri-state area will be working from home. I think the virus as a whole is still overblown by the media but the number of cancellations/disruptions of events around NYC seems to have really picked up over the last 24 hours.

I wonder when the league and club are going to say something. Seems bound to happen in the next couple days.

Predictions for 2020

Only one of the seven media figures on MLS' website has RBNY making the playoffs. That person predicted them to finish 7th.
