Not hard to figure who yanked this thread in that direction...Just go back to page 1.

Don't see how it makes sense to have unpaid college athletes playing a regular season when the school year is over


If you are worried about unpaid college athletes, just have a tournament with these schools: Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, LSU, Oregon, Arizona, UConn, Syracuse, and Ohio St.


Who would watch??

"unpaid" matters because if its unsafe for regular students to be on campus due to health concerns, how do you justify having athletes there? if they were paid workers, ok....but as unpaid college student/athletes there has to be enormous potential liability to the University.


This is the last time I try to be funny here. Once again you have crushed my thoughful sarcasm. But I am going to explain myself anyway.

You mentioned "unpaid college athletes," and here is where my keen sense of satirical wit came in: I rattled off a bunch of schools that -- and is not a stretch to conclude -- find ways to compensate its athletes (i.e. pay them).

Those guys would be 1099 self employed contractors with no benefits. ;)
(Sorry for missing the joke again.)

In all seriousness though, even those guys getting "extra benefits" could sue the school if they got sick and passed it on to their family. Don't see how any school can handle that risk/exposure.

Although NCAA announced summer workouts can begin July 20, still uncertain if St. John's will be able to do so. Depends on government allowing school to open. Seton Hall is planning to have workouts starting July 20. #sjubb #shbb

Phase 4 includes reopening of schools, and that is scheduled in NYC barring setbacks around July 20, so would seem like a good shot of happening. #sjubb

There is a spoof Horse Race making the rounds on Facebook and other sites that Is hilarious . I wish I had the technical expertise to post it here . There are like 12 horses running , all named after Words or people or Phrases that have become common place with the Virus . One horse is Wuhan Virus , Another is Dr Fauci , etc . You get the drift .. Anyway they have a guy who sounds just like a Track Announcer doing the Race . It’s hilarious ! I won’t give away the final results but , you can catch the Race yourself by googling or other search sites . On another topic , is DeBlasio still using the Police to pull people out of the Water at Coney Island and having them arrested ? If they were arrested did they get released as quickly as the looters , Rioters and Arsonists ? Or , are the poor Beachgoers locked up at empty Rikers Island ? Asking for a beach going friend .
