NCAA BB TOURNEY--NO FANS

Postby jhart » Wed Mar 11, 2020 4:47 pm

Fox News just said NCAA has made a decision on no fans.
I believe family of team will be allowed.

If they are going to do this, move the games to smaller arenas. By way of an example, you don’t need MSG when 6000 seats are available at St John’s. At least you would have some atmosphere. Use arenas with around 4000-6000 seats, there would still be plenty of empty breathing room. I bet you could find one in or near every host city.

I have tickets for the Albany Session as well as for the D III Frozen Four here in Buffalo so I am very disappointed; however not surprised. Unfortunately a necessary action, though hard to swallow. The impact on both the local economies ( hotels airlines, restaurants, railroads, the local employees for the arenas and the loss of wages and sale tax) and the national economy will be staggering, although I am sure trump will arrange some type of bailout for the hotel indu$try.

Anyways, watching old North Atlantic nemesis Colgate and Bahston U the Patriot Championship, Go Red Raidahs!

Just watched the Big East, St Johns/ Georgetown game, from the Garden with a full crowd. That will probably be the last of the games at the Garden with a crowd. Tough time for my favorite time of year. God Bless all.

I'm just kinda of wondering if the IRS will cease collection efforts and filing deadlines since many of us due to age and other vulnerabilities will be unable to leave or homes to meet in a "public setting" with tax professionals, family members, and friends. Seems reasonable.
