Player Payments Big V,NBL1

Curious if clubs feel they are still obliged to make player payments to those on contracts if season is reduced or abandoned.I know most would have signed contracts but wonder if these current circumstances are covered in them

I think they might use the Act of god clause. Just like nrl, pAyments will be reduced.

Act of god won't be in the contracts it’s not a billy Connolly movie.

The contracts will state they have to play games to fulfil there obligations in order to be paid

I've been involved with plenty of contracts in sports and the "Act of god" went out of AFL players contracts about 15 years ago as it went out of insurance and similar related products around the same time.

The issue is players/sponsor etc can't fulfill there contractual obligations so thus no one will get paid.

In the end this is how economies collapse as the economic picture is looking very much like September 2016 in Venezuela with shelves empty and overseas supply chains unable to supply basics all of a sudden the cash in the system dries up and it all falls over.

The clubs/sponsors can't be and won't pay players to not play or admin staff to not work as the money won't be there.

Well first "god “ has to be proven to actually exist to “inact" that clause.......if infact it can be proven, then who are his/her representatives, because they owe the entire world a buck load of money

Seriously hope the BigV don't follow suit and cancel the season. Just play with no imports if you have to.

Not the same planet as you clearly bud

During Morrison's press conference the other night to announce the shutdowns, he said we should expect them to remain in place for at least six months. So best case scenario, September. No Big V.

In reality, if we're going to continue down this track it's likely to take more like two years.

Why can't Big V run over summer? NBL 1 is tricky with the NBL season but there’s no reason Big V can’t run a shortened season anytime of the year.

Why run over summer when you could wait a month or two and run normally?

That's assuming a best case scenario, too. I would be unsurprised if things are still closed in a year's time. We need a total lockdown for a couple of months and extensive testing to make sure cases are at zero, then to rely on the border closures to keep new cases from coming in. That's the only way this ends.

Cases at zero? There is no chance that happens. The Government isn't going to destroy the economy and have millions and millions become unemployed to ensure nobody gets this virus. Put simply, every single measure we are taking at the moment is to slow the spread so the health care system does not collapse. In implementing these measures, there is an assumed and acceptable level of spread, as with any virus.

Either cases hit zero or social distancing continues until the population is sufficiently vaccinated, which is at least two years.

I just totally disagree. The aim of the game is not to eradicate.
Its to accept that people will get it and to ensure there is a manageable spread.

The only ways to manage the spread are social distancing or a vaccine.

Until the latter arrives, we're stuck with the former. And this can't last that long.

While it may never literally hit zero, the only way out is to get it low enough that we can trace and test everyone who has ever had contact with someone who tests positive. And that's going to take a massive shutdown to achieve.

There is not a single country in the world that has managed to get on top of this without a total lockdown. Because it can't be done.

It won't take two years. We'll have a lockdown eventually.

This thing is out of the bag! its bout helping the health system through the pain and slowing the flood of people clogging it up if this thing just goes through the population unchecked.

I expect we get to a tipping point of virus Vs other health negatives of everyone sitting at home....financial, mental physical health which can have far longer and more negative effects on the country.

Note that we we have to get back to work soon or they'll be not tax income to pay for anything!
