In Topic: Did you watch the return of German soccer?

Today, 12:01 PM

Surprised at how well the fake crowd noise worked, and think they should play it in the stadium

If I didn't know there was no crowd, I would have no idea the sound was fake. Certainly sounds realistic, good job on that front.

However, given the circumstances, I'm always aware it is actually fake, especially when the camera shows empty seats. Definitely against it, wish it was optional like it is in Germany.

In Topic: MLS to return for July tournament?

Is having a bubble tournament really better than playing in normal empty stadiums? Fine, blue team might have to play in Hartford, but who cares about them.

No huge difference for the matches themselves, but a big decrease in travel and contact with peopld in various cities. Also much easier to contain/trace contacts when someone inevitably contracts the virus.

The knock-out round games, however, are pointless.

Literally 7 more games (3 each max for the finalists) for fun , TV ratings and "covid tourney" winner bragging rights.

Not necessarily the most meaningful thing in the world, but I don't see any harm in it.

There will be some sort of rise in cases, but that rise will be mitigated because of some level of social distancing and an immense increase in mask-wearing versus a "normal" baseline. Like, I'm in Chicago and I don't know a single person who's going back to their office anytime this summer. That means they aren't commuting, aren't around other people all day, etc.

A NYC-like spike isn't going to happen anywhere unless people get super complacement.

Plenty of people in many states going to bars in the past couple of days with barely any precaution according to what I've seen in the news and on Twitter (YMMV).

Hopefully there are no significant spikes (and certainly no NYC-like ones), but it will be a minor miracle if reopening doesn't cause a significant increase in cases in a number of places.
