Honestly, I'm surprised they pulled the trigger. I really believed that greed would win out, but it's better for the public health that they didn't /

Well to that point the TV deal is where they make the big money. With that in mind I'll be surprised if they outright cancel the tournaments.

Also, this is going to be a weird experience. It'll be like watching a game at the Y, just with better players and some dudes commentating on the game.

When he canceled the Dayton/Cleveland games, the Ohio governor said something like, “This week, people can’t believe what I’m doing. By next week, they’ll be talking about what an easy decision it must have been.”

This will be like playing games in Hawaii. Teams thrive off the crowd's energy.

Big oof. Fingers crossed that this is the furthest that they'll go and the tournament will happen at least.

Maybe they can set up a stadium speaker system and use a 'fan track', running cheers and referee boos etc, kinda like a laugh track they use on sitcoms.

How far does no media go? Will the games even be aired, either on the radio or TV?

The play by play guys finally have a reason to stay 3 feet away from Walton and Dakich.

Ok, just don't close Las Vegas down. I'll take my chances there.
