NH: effect of coronavirus on sports leagues
The NBL has probably dodged a bullet just because of the timing of the season. But what about the leagues that are starting now that have full exposure to this.
The AFL for one is going to take a massive hit. Even if it goes ahead without crowds that's a massive hit alone with ticket sales. And then if you cancel the season do they still get their TV rights money? Do players still get paid?
NRL would be the same. Cricket safer.
