This speaks to the point I was making about adjustments. We're all being asked to do that now with our jobs and there are 22 million people right now who don't even have that opportunity. Again I'll say - ask them if they'd like to make adjustments for a job right now. I think we know what the answer would be. So I don't think it's asking too much of pro athletes to make adjustments either. They certainly will be much more highly compensated for any adjustments than most of us will be. And yes that matters in my opinion. The higher the compensation, the easier adjustments become. That's just a fact.Ultrarunner wrote: ↑Thu Apr 16, 2020 2:11 pmI have zero sympathy for someone who may be inconvenienced by moving into a 5-star hotel for a few months.
I missed holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. over 5 deployments in 25 years covering substantially more than “a few months” and was not living in a hotel. I damn near missed the birth of my oldest daughter.
Also, I think we can stipulate that whatever plan is implemented will be done in coordination with top health officials. I hope that's not a naive thing to believe. Yes we all want sports back but we want a plan implemented that has safety first. Fauci believes this could happen and I trust him. We'll see what the NBA's Board of Governors thinks today. If the PGA holds firm on its mid-June return plan that could be our first light in the tunnel.
