I understand being upset. I'm just pointing out that none of the things you mentioned are known to be "the" reason this happened. That's all.
Thursday morning was the latest I heard.
I don't know that there will be forfeits. I said if the Cards get the green-light from MLB to resume play Friday, and the Cubs decide not to show up for a game MLB's system has OK'd the Cardinals to play, then the Cubs should be forced to forfeit the games the are not willing to play. Allowing teams to hijack the schedule and ignore the system that sends a team back onto the field safely is a recipe for disaster. I don't understand what a back-up team argument is about. Every team has a secondary pool of players to pull from, but you cant start doing that until you are sure the outbreak on the major league team has been contained. If you don't get a grip on the outbreak before you start mixing players, all you get is two infected camps.
Yeah, you would have to ask him. Can't speak for him, and didn't see the tweet.
As someone who read the emails and answered most of them, I will respectfully have to disagree. When multiple individual examples cite the same bias that is embedded in many ways in our area, I think the definition fits. Signs of systemic racism can be found in housing, policing, health care, etc. They can also be found in the normal day-to-day practice of a society -- like emails flooding an inbox after a popular way of thinking is challenged.
Hard to say for certain. Some are turned off by the social justice conversations taking place within sports. Some are having a hard time buying into these crossed-finger seasons during the pandemic. Some are just out of their game-watching routines and now everything is flooding back at once. There's a lot to examine.
Based on the explanation that was offered yesterday, it sounded like each person had his own car. I'm not 100 percent sure though.
