Well, we're talking about a State's tort law which is subject to the whims of local politicians. States could absolve businesses from liability.I highly doubt large gatherings of people (think anything the size of seeing a movie or more) are going to be much of a thing until there's a vaccine widely available. I doubt this because insurance carriers for these venues/events/promoters will most likely say you're on your own if an attendee gets sick and sues you. Even if they want to open, and many do, I really think that's going to be a bridge too far.
Sure, but what do you think the likelihood of that is? I'd put it around the same as actually refunding/dissolving the USPS - a good talking point for some audiences but almost certain to never happen.Well, we're talking about a State's tort law which is subject to the whims of local politicians.

First you wanted us to fire our coach and now we have to cancel the season? You also realize that neither of those decisions are up to us right?I'm honestly shocked at the number of people that are willing to put themselves in harms way/ or put others in harms way to simply watch sports live or go to a concert.
A basketball game is not worth your life. We are not in a situation right now, nor will we be by the fall, that it will be OK to hold any events with large numbers of people. I'm even more shocked that we have people in the high risk category that are willing to scarface getting sick (or die) to watch VCU basketball.
At this point, after seeing some of these responses, I think they should call off the season. Not simply for the safety of the players, coaches, staff, stadium workers, ect, but for the safety of fans that would put themselves and others in harms way to simply watch a basketball game.
Please put into perspective that basketball will be here after this virus. You don't have to scarface yourself or others just because you want to see a game, or go to a concert, or go to a park.
