Thats what happens when you have multiple teams owned by the same ownership group. The bottom half teams (which belonged to same ownership groups like Atlas/Morelia) didnt want to resume the league. They owned double the votes (one per Team) compared to the independently owned teams (like Guadalajara) who wanted to continue.

LIGA MX is a shitty managed league right now. Thats why they abandoned promotion/relegation and are really interested in either creating a merged league with MLS or adopting the MLS model (sponsorship, tv deal, etc).

Owners owning multiple teams in a league, where have we seen THAT before?

Well, the curve hasnt exactly been flattened in Texas.  The NYT today had a graph showing that cases in Texas are rising pretty precipitously.


Number of cases isn't the number to look at, percentage of tests that come back positive is. For example if you test 1,000 people one day with 50 positives and 3,000 people the next day and get 70 positives that is a good sign because if the rate of infection was steady you would've expected 150 cases. I did not see the article but if they didn't back it up with percentage of positives then they did a bad job.

I hope everyone has been staying safe and healthy...

I would think that cases might ramp back up with a quick reopening especially in such a condensedly populated area as Metro NY...

In Florida things have opened up today so we'll see soon if we see a rise in cases if it's a good idea to open things up in NY... I would think they'd wait just a few weeks longer..

Maybe MLS kicks back up in August.. But the worry is when season change and flu season starts will Coronavirus cases start to rise again


The one certainty among all this:

Areas will have different results and both sides in the pro/anti lockdown debate will cherry pick the ones that support their side and parade them around as definitive proof while ignoring the ones that don't.
