    I would think golf would be next. The mere fact it will be so much easier to control.

    I think true team sports are further out, as well as those more reliant on the incomes produced at arenas and stadiums. NASCAR sponsorships and advertising would seem to be the larger producer of sports income compared to event/turnstile/concession receipts. especially factoring in the venues changing after each race. don't watch golf but crowds seem small and more of a prop for broadcasts.

    The Disney World plan sounds good to me.
    Think if all the employees going back to work under odd arrangements why shouldn’t the NBA be any different.
    Play the games on TV and finish the season then maybe playoffs could continue within arenas?
    The people need sports and the players are paid well enough to give back the game even if it’s differently.

    even with no travel and playing every other day it will take a month for teams to complete their seasons

    how about tennis? bass masters tour? wake boarding/skiing? surfing for sure in the fall.
    some of "the wide world of sports" classics will be back before the next world series.
    Maybe can start editing/taping local faves of the pacific NW like the Columbia river walleye tourneys

    When I was their age and if I was paid to play it wouldnt matter if it was the Elks Club or YMCA.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    How can golf come back? A golfer can't socially distance from his/her caddy. That's a sacred bond.

    By the way, I don't play or watch golf, so I'm including a caveat that my above statements might be completely wrong. Probably not, though, because I'm pretty good at understanding everything with one quick glance.

    they considered landscapers to be an essential service provider here in hawaii. pros will have to learn how to drive their own cart, cause one of the social distancing guidelines for the clubs is only one golfer per cart unless family living same household.

    They should make a golf club you can shove up your nose for an instant Covid19 test.
