Looks like the NORTHERN border shutdown is now extended til August 21 ( shortly before that date will be extended till Sept 21) and on and on

1600 new cases in Canada last week ..... yes 37 million people and 7 full days of testing 1600

Maybe its in our beer the solution to this virus



My dear Canadian Amigo, your beer could be a "solution" to covid19 because you guys don't have the unfortunate and the POOR-PEOPLE we get here in USA. In fact, Canadians don't have to do anything except wearing facemasks, and the covid19 will die off by default eventually

The super RICH GUYS in USA get to share their wealth with the unfortunate and the POOR-PEOPLE. Otherwise, the unfortunate and the POOR-PEOPLE will keep on doing the massive peaceful protests everywhere as shown on TVs. They catch and spread covid19 to all, the rich & the poor. The data don't lie. 58,858 Americans get infected with covid19 PER DAY!

The unfortunate and the POOR-PEOPLE will keep on doing the massive peaceful protests until they're WELL-TO-DO and get what they're entitled to.

I'm so curious to see what Vegas will look like five years from now. How many casinos will there be compared to now? Will the major groups get a greater percentage of total casinos or will their debt be their undoing? It's odd to think about a future Vegas that isn't a hub of gambling and massive resorts.

Good question.

I think the future is for more regional gambling centers with more local travel and less cross country travel to Vegas.

More states are embracing the revenue and jobs from casinos.

I would say 99% of the people in stores are wearing masks few don't as people with certain medical conditions are not required to wear one .

Ya, I keep seeing theses people that claim they have a medical condition that impede their mask wearing abilities, they are usually loud, obnoxious, bullish people who don't give a f*** about anybody. STAY THE HELL HOME AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO YOUR CRAP ANOTHER WAY. And they can shove their fake emotional support animals up their ***.

My guess is Nevada Casinos won't be shutting down right now. With Baseball scheduled to start next week and NBA and NHL the following week, they are going to want to have sportsbooks open and see what that brings.

But I am also guessing the "return to sports" isn't going to go too well nor last very long. These millionaire players aren't going to want to be guinea pigs. Once they start testing positive and a few get sick, they will balk. College Football is already on the path to cancelling the season and the NFL will have no choice but to follow.

Once sports is gone again if cases, hospitalizations and deaths continue to rise, I think you will see casinos closed again. I also don't think you will see schools and colleges opening as some politicians want (for their own self interest).

Remember summer time and higher temperatures, with people out doors more was supposed to be the time and conditions that we got a break from this virus, that it all but disappeared before a return in the fall. Well it has done anything but disappear. The uptick in the fall is going to be nasty.



PGA has had positive tests of players... Not shut down...
Multiple European soccer leagues with many positive tests.... Not shut down....
Nascar has had ancillary staff test positive.... Not shut down.....
Tennis players test positive.... Tour still goes on....
Horse racing..... still racing....
NHL has had dozens of positive tests.... still on target to start....
Same for NBA and MLB.....

You must be aware we have heard of now hundreds if not thousands of these athletes testing positive.... but I can't think of ONE who has gotten so sick that they made news because of it..... What we hear is they test positive and thus will home quarantine for XX days....

I fully expect the NFL to play this season. Wanna bet $10?

How long do you think any of those sports will manage without fans in attendance?

I just had a class last weekend where one of my students said that they had a medical condition so they could not wear one. I could not challenge them so I had to just continue on. Its not about them, but its about protecting others. Why cant they wear a face shield? Long story short, failed the class. Unfortunate.

I don't see any sports league surviving beyond this season if they can't bring in live audiences. I understand television money drives the economic machine but ratings will dry up if the games are played before an empty stadium. Rumors are that the NY Giants are hoping to be able to play before 10,000 fans. That will leave 65,000 pissed off season ticket holders. Ticket holders that forked over thousands of dollars months ago.
Baseball has already canceled its entire minor league season, retarding every players growth and how many minor league players will go into other careers because they can't sit out a year with no pay. I think they also canceled last springs draft, or heavily modified it. They were looking for a way to modify the entire minor league system and I'm sure that when it does come back, it will be quite different.
Stadiums get tax breaks because municipalities get shares of parking revenues, sales taxes on everything sold and most major league stadiums provide hundreds, if not thousands of jobs, even if most are part-time. Take away the fans and why do we need Yankee Stadium? Madison Square Garden sits atop some of the most expensive real estate in the country. How long will the Dolans pay to maintain what without fans is a white elephant?
Las Vegas laid out tens of millions to build the new minor league stadium. How's that investment looking now?

Interesting... I see virtually ALL of the sports leagues surviving beyond this season if they can't bring in live audiences. Do you actually believe any of the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, PGA, Nascar, actually fold if there are no fans this year? They certainly will lose money, but "NOT SURVIVE"???? Pick which one you think will "not survive" and let's make a bet!!!!!

As far as your 'minor league' thoughts, players with major league aspirations will wait another year.... very few if any real major league prospects will give up on the dream because they miss a season.

As far as the municipalities losing money on the stadiums... spot on! The Raider's stadium.... that is quite a boatload paid to build a stadium for NO fans!
