    Yeah, I guess that makes sense if they are cutting hours too.

    Exactly.

    So, I was wondering how it's going to work for you if the Blazers pay you now for missed games and the season is restarted sometime after June 1st. Will you get paid again for actually doing the game or would they be expecting you to do the game for no additional money even though the dough that they gave you is long gone?

    Was JUST having this conversation with the guy that sits next to me during the games. No idea. Seems weird to be paid TWICE huh? Do you think NBA teams have catastrophe insurance? Is that the pool they are paying us out of?

    No idea on that other than most catastrophe insurance seems to have weasel words that exempt covering "acts of god". Is the Coronavirus an act of god? My guess is that Jody Allen is covering it because she thinks it's the right thing to do.

    I've been curious about that, too. With so many people expecting to be paid while there's no work to do and the company has little to no revenue stream (not talking about just the NBA, teachers would also be included), will they feel similarly compelled to "pay it forward" when there's extra work later?

    I'm working half time. One week on and one off right now. Don't see the difference?

    Denny is cutting you picnickers on his front estate lawn. Then he'll get to the moderator freeloaders camping on the back hill behind the castle.

    I make money, not a living. For that, just check back in with me in with me in a year. Trust me!

    Wow!
    That has OKC and the Jazz playing a 7 game series and then the Thunder rolling by the Clippers only to get smoked by the Lakers?
    Dallas Sweeping Denver?
    How about the Bucks losing bad to the Celtics?

    Nope! Not in the real world.
