McCarron and Lual-Acuil test positive for COVID-19

United and Phoenix trainings suspended immediately by the NBL.

All players and staff who had attended trainings on or after July 22 will be tested and isolated, regardless of test result.

United suspended training and the NBL required SEM to suspend training also as a precautionary measure.

This is what really has me concerned about the NBL season. Victoria is basically a basketcase at the moment with covid-19, the AFL can afford to relocate the Vic teams and not play in Melbourne anymore however the NBL likely couldn't.

We're about to hit August so only four months until the NBL season is due to start I just can't see it being all cleared up with full stadiums by then.

They will move the Melbourne teams to a hub.

That is the obvious answer isn't it. Not hard to see?! Very likely they'll play in hubs just like the AFL. SEM and United will be flown to a hub. Isolate for 14 days then begin the season.

Doesn't take a genius to see that's how it will work.

No, this is why a "bubble" won't work, since they have brought the virus in from elsewhere. It's why I was mazed they were allowed to continue training.

Nor does it require a hub.
My daughter is in Melbourne, she is doing it tough. Her friends have Corona, and she is in isolation on her own. People are dying, so my heartfelt prayers and sympathy go out to the people of Melbourne.
And yes, honestly, if we miss out on a bit of NBL, well there are far worse things happening.

But, hypothetically, if Melbourne were to be the only problem, then relocating two teams is not a huge problem. Send one to Hobart and one to Launceston, try to drum up a bit of NBL buzz, and the league can continue.

Yes the loss of revenue will be acute, but they may well be in a situation where "some revenue" is better than "no revenue".

If instead you wanted to front-load their season with away-games, then I suppose relocate them somewhere central for training purposes.

And remember, these are basketballers, the idea of leaving family and travelling the world to play is nothing new. They're not a bunch of Victorian footballers who cry every time they have to leave mummy.

The contingency plan is that they would bubble the players and they would play in an empty stadium. Not sure they have any other choice for Melbourne teams. Yes, they can't survive off TV, but the alternative is the players sit and the league drops two teams for a season. Maybe the Melbourne clubs can choose.

Wouldn't surprise me if we have Melbourne-scale outbreaks hit other states at any point in the next few months also.

Would probably be better financially to just release all the players from their contracts and sit out the season. I would imagine NBL teams sail too close to the wind financially to be able to afford to play in front of a couple of hundred people in another state. Assuming of course LK isn't willing to pick up both teams tabs for the season.

it is costing the AFL about $3m a week to have teams in their hubs.... the cost for the NBL wouldn't be that much as clubs have fewer personal (staff, players, families) to move but would still be a substantial cost.
where does the income come from??? bums on seats....

That would only happen if someone there in attendance already had the coronavirus. It's not out there in the community we're basically free of it and the 2 or 3 people just diagnosed in the last week were people returning from Melbourne where they caught it.

Not going to work.
I can't understand how anybody could think it would?

1) How is bubbling going to be any different to what they have now, and look what happened.
2) To be effective you'd have to move players, coaches, staff, venue staff, refs, caterers, domestics, and all their families into an isolation complex. If you're going to do that, why not spend LESS money accommodating them elsewhere with less restrictions?
3) Even if you only got a few hundred NBL fans to a game in Tassie, isn't that better than NO fans in Melbourne?
4) How are you going to get other teams into and out of this supposed bubble. The Wildcats certainly won't be going, because they'd have to quarantine on return to Perth.
5) Even if the teams are bubbled, anybody coming from Melbourne is going to be treated much stricter, so travelling interstate is going to be much tougher.
Perth is making money from the AFL, and when Optus goes to full Capacity, they will be raking it in. Plus dreamers think we have a shot at Hosting the GF. NBL just doesn't have that same clout.
As it stands, if things aren't loosened here, Perth may have to relocate interstate, just to get around the 2-week quarantine.

We have 4 months, and I suspect most states will be anxious to wind back the restrictions, but the irony there is that the more we ease general restrictions, the LESS we will trust people travelling from Melbourne.

I would suggest that the NBL try and come up with a 1 year paid TV deal and renegotiate current broadcasting deals with ESPN and SBS (more years back ended free) that enable the clubs and league to pay the players and staff salaries, and costs to relocate teams if required during this years crisis.

If COVID is still around over the summer this year then people aren't going to have much to do other than sit at home and watch TV. The network surely should be able to get back their money plus some in ad revenue. Think about it the major sponsors are HJs and Bunnings, perhaps bring on a larger telco Voda, Optus or Telstra (Not AldiMobile), and a bank (thinking Westpac helicopter ads over summer)...

Organise the schedule to play prime time night games on alternate nights to the Australian Cricket schedule. Invest in additional content to draw in the NBA interest.

1/4 of Victorians who have been diagnosed with Covid and tested positive are not at their isolation location. Let that sink in, 25% of confirmed cases don't give a F$$$ and are quite happy for the rest of Victoria to contract the disease from them.

There is another 40% of people with symptoms who consult health professionals and are asked to get tested and isolate awaiting results. They never get tested, likely never isolate.

That's correct. So the world (for the most part) has been taking a lot of precautions, locking down etc, and still that many people have died. It is dangerous, we are just lucky in Australia it hasn't been as bad relative to some other countries. Although Melbourne is showing some concerning signs.

I think the key point about attitudes like Mike's and Bigdog's is that they belong to the people who are the 25% not isolating and not protecting the rest of the community. They're like the brainless duo who took COVID-19 from Melbourne to Brisbane this week, via Sydney.

Of course, the direct consequence of that behaviour is the continued growth of COVID-19 in Victoria and NSW. A secondary consequence is the implementing and extending of shutdowns and restrictions in those places.

So, Mike and Bigdog, ironically people like you are the ones whose behaviours are prolonging that supposed COVID-19 over-reaction you declaimed above. If you want NBL to go ahead in 2020-21, perhaps try a different approach.

Bigdog - there's something called social responsibility. If we have smoking ban in public places due to high risk of lung cancer, why this would be any different? There is something also called criminal negligence. Hypothetically if you carry the virus and ignore the rule/recommendation and someone contracts it from you and dies, you are actually responsible - that person can be 80+, but it is still a person and that qualifies as involuntary manslaughter. Under the law, there is a huge difference between not knowing and ignoring.

And don't want to go back into statistics and modelling since it will be pointless.

Lol, why then the relatives of those who passed away after disembarking the Ruby Princess are suing the operators for criminal negligence and damages. It will be interesting if the operator uses the same narrative - 'they were too old and destined to die anyway'. It's already happening in the States and by the look of it the operator is prepared to settle - makes you wonder why.

We may come back to this topic in a few months when affected parties start digging further who screwed up with the quarantine breaches and relatives of deceased start a class action lawsuit against someone, likely the Government and Security operators. I'm curious what will happen if anyone in contact with those 3 girls who brought the virus to Queensland suffers severe consequences, will they do nothing? They've been charged for fraud already, creates intent. People sued for far less and won. And Libs today changed the tune and requested ankle braces for those who are tested positive or tested positive and breached the stay home order, something like that. I thought this would be only for criminals, but hey I may be wrong and talking crap as usual :)

Correlation does not equal causation. Numbers are misinterpreted all the time. Too often, people look for numbers to support their case without looking for the truth.

This thread was about the MU guys and their positive tests. Respect the thread and make another if you want to start another discussion.

Best wishes to the MU guys and their families as they recover. Hopefully there are no lingering effects.
