It is time to lock ourselves away though. The countries doing well with COVID have moved early and hard.

A-League and national codes' stubbornness shows where priority lies in Australian sport

And in “stepping in” they have moved far too f#$%€n slow, which will lead to many more deaths

The CMO had blood on his hands. He’s allowing economic decisions to override medical ones. The lag in the decision to close schools will kill many.

Agree Kanga. Every step taken to stop the spread of COVID must be taken. Every life counts. Social distancing can’t happen in football

It’s over as far as I’m concerned Buddy. Irrelevant. Waz makes some great points as to why sport, and work need to be balanced with “flattening the curve”. The economic effects are horrendous and heart breaking.
From a health care professional POV there are too may other things to focus on; weighing up whether to pull the kids from school, whether I need to segregate myself from family to continue to work, tracking patients and staff we’ve been in contact with.
Seeing what I am seeing, in Italy especially, I think we are acting far too slowly. Non – essential contact needs to stop. A-league is non essential

Whoever wins the A-League will be the best at playing behind closed doors

More than 100k dying isn’t as bad as the precautionary action? These are the figures we’ll be dealing with (in Australia) if we don’t slow transmission. How do we do that? “Precautionary action “

Lay off Cameron Smith

It’s always nice to see someone who understands the issue Rowdy

AFL in the time of COVID-19: Sticking together while social distancing

Worse casr scenario is 20% of our population end up in hospital . 200k or so die.

You go along happily thinking it’s a conspiracy. I work in health. This is a sh1t storm, make no mistake

AFL in the time of COVID-19: Sticking together while social distancing

Agree totally

AFL in the time of COVID-19: Sticking together while social distancing

Non essential businesses will be closed by the end of the month

Unaffected but spreaders

AFL in the time of COVID-19: Sticking together while social distancing

Estimated would pit 40-60 % of players in the infected basket eventually. Unless the entire roster of every team (plus support staff) are quarantined from everyone else for the course of the entire season (families included) COVID will be rampant.

And yes, there is a small risk players may die. Is it really worth it?

Over in a few weeks? The peak is likely to be another 2-3 months…

You’re all for isolation but happy for the A-league to go ahead? It’s both “applicable and practical ” to cease all sporting competitions. That way we can maximise the chance of keeping the essential work force at work

FFA suspends grassroots football as Wellington Phoenix head to Australia

You have completely diminished the risks of ignoring the need for social isolation. You have completely dismissed the lives of the elderly. For a game.

There is the potential for an A-league player to die, there is at least one in remission for cancer. Young people still end up in ICU btw. An A-league player exposed because he’s still training or playing may end up in ICU, probably live, but deny another person who’s tried to do the right thing a chance to live….

Stay home everyone. I’d love to but will be neck deep in corona virus again tonight. Scr3w the A-league

I don’t think Micko is thinking Kanga

Great post Kanga.

Like the players you lack the education on the issue to have an informed opinion. Like the players you shouldn’t be given a choice. Non essential activities and businesses must close.

The lives of the estimated 50-150k Australians that may soon be lost are far more important than playing football.

Well said Kanga

How do these obviously unimportant elderly people get COVID 19 Micko? From exposure to others, often healthy hosts. Sympathies to you when your parent/grandparents dies in the coming weeks. If only we’d slowed transmission by social isolation, the only way to control this. We would have had an ICU bed for them.

Because the government have been so negligent in their response, transmission is going at a phenomenal rate, and will only worsen.

You realise that once ICUs are full that younger people who need the beds for non COVID issues won’t get them?

FFA suspends grassroots football as Wellington Phoenix head to Australia

I actually agree. FFA have made the right decision with grassroots, based on the need for social isolation. Unfortunately logic has gone out of the window when it comes to the A-league. Let’s make this quite clear, while the risks to younger people are lower, there are still significant risks, yet here we are, ludicrously going ahead, players going through airports and being in close contact.
By next week I’d expect schools to be shut and non essential businesses closing, gatherings of more than 10 people banned.
The government have showed appalling decision making, and FFA have joined in.
Judging by what I have seen at work these last 2 days the $hit is getting very very real. Worrying about finishing a football season? Worry about living to the end of the football season. Stay home everyone

The AFL have handled this far better than the A-league or NRL. Clear and decisive guidance with the greater good in mind

Well done, from an A-league fan

AFL season to be reduced over coronavirus fears, but no decision on Round 1 until tomorrow

Ha! I wouldn’t have had to tell you off. Just a withering glare would have been enough (Like the one Fowler gives the 4th official all game)

What happens if there's no more A-League?

We haven’t even started Griffo….

A-League and W-League seasons to continue without fans amid coronavirus outbreak

Take the stairs every day. It’ll halve your chances of ever going to hospital
