    All depends how bad it gets. At the end of the day Life is far more important than Sport
    Men’s Tennis Tour is cancelled for a bare bare minimum of 6 weeks. I think we can forget Golf And Tennis Majors for example.Back to football,how on earth will the European Club Comps carry on from next week on.
    Players and members of Clubs are going down with it,let alone the General Public.
    I think in the near future Sport will be the last thing on our minds.

    Yes the bigger percentage of victims will be older people,but it will kill younger people as well. Already has.
    The whole thing is like watching a Horror Thriller Movie while being Surreal at the same time.
    I think we are all trying to get our heads around this.

    No they cant as the race started way back and fans payed their money to see it come to an end with a winner ,that's the criteria when buying in at the start , the next suggestion will be we play them to decide winner , now forgive me for saying but , they have nothing to lose and everything to gain with this outcome and only suits them , so for me it's a no .

    Cancelling 7 day tournaments is easier than cancelling 9 month leagues with teams that rely on gate receipts and TV money to pay players. No tennis competition no pay, no league club still pays staff. They can postpone it or work off average points. I could see spfl cancelling next year's winter break and or league Cup to accommodate a late season finish.

    Could you show me the figures where a young person has died without underlying health issues, this is basically another strain of the flu virus. If it was as bad as say AIDS but was airborne then we would be *!

    Yeah I totally understand that mate, that’s why all this is serious but people need the correct information. This isn’t Ebola or as bad but will effect people that are already not 100%. Also sorry to hear about your Dad as I recently had a scare aswell.

    Yes but it all depends how bad it gets.Simple as that. What is more important Football or people dying in large numbers.
    * I hope the worst does not happen but it is not looking good in any sense of the word.
    And in 2 weeks time I do not thing any Sport will be on our minds. Hope I am wrong,but none of us know how bad this could get.

    Team sports are not just sports, they are businesses with employees. It's why the games haven't been done behind closed doors. A football match with 50 thousand people at it is mental but there must be a reason it hasn't been stopped.

    I am no expert but this not just another strain of the Flu Virus.And there are plenty of younger people who have underlining health issues.
    I think as far as we all
    Know it will kill far more older people,but that is still very bad.
    The Scientific World is still trying to get to know this disease.

    I wasn’t arguing about that. I asked you to show me the information refuting what we have already been told. If this virus was as bad as others then is definitely the time to panic, all of the victims have been of old age or had underlying issues. That alone tells me it has to do with an immune deficiency. We have also been told it’s a strain of the flu virus numerous times. Or were you pished?

    Has it been confirmed anywhere that everyone who’s died from it was either old or had underlying issues?

    Well Staff and Players of Club’s are starting to get the virus,that could
    Really spread,so in the near future there will simply be no matches for some time.
    But it really is and horrible wait and see.

    This week i managed to brighten up my day by standing on a * nail,so i of course went for a jab and while there i thought it would be a good time to ask about the virus.
    The short of what the doc said was this.
    Its coming,we cant stop it and most will get it,but if you are in good health and fit you will/should be ok.
    It will be the old or people with pre existing medical conditions who are most at risk.
    Its like a flu or bad cold,wash hands and if you get it try and stay away from others.
    It is going to take upto 6 months to run its course through out the world.

    I know, mate; but as garryw1888 alludes to, you have to think several steps ahead. If you catch it and give it to someone else who goes to visit their gran or something... It's a percentage game for the old folk and folk who are already ill: small differences in the average number of people infected by everyone who gets it can make a big difference to the final percentage of the population who get it.


    By taking as many precautions as possible, you can quite literally save lives.

    "Just the flu" Just stop, They said 80% of the UK population may get it which is terrible news for older people.
