Germany’s top two soccer leagues might restart play in empty stadiums as early as next month.

The National Lacrosse League officially cancelled the remainder of the regular season. League officials are looking at any number of scenarios to return to play when all stakeholders and health officials deem that possible. “With three weekends left in the regular season and the uncertainty about resumption during that time, we decided it is in the best interests of our players, coaches, staff, partners and fans to remove any uncertainty. Our goal is to find the best, and safest, solution for resumption of play, but what that looks like, and when that occurs, cannot be determined today,” said NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz. “Our primary focus is the long term health of all involved in the sport of lacrosse from a personal and a business standpoint, and we are consulting with our board, medical and municipal authorities, as well as leadership in other organizations across sports and entertainment, to determine when we will be able to effectively move forward. Whenever that is, we have plans in place that continue to evolve, and we will be ready to restart the process correctly and effectively.”

Nonprofits include: the American Red Cross; CDC Foundation’s All of Us: Combat Coronavirus Campaign; Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund; Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund; the Salvation Army; and United Way’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund. “As we face this global health crisis together, we are filled with gratitude for the extraordinary work of first responders, healthcare workers and many others who are helping those in need,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “The Draft-A-Thon will deliver much-needed funding to many who are suffering as well as those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

SPORTS BROADCAST JOURNAL w/DAVID J. HALBERSTAM

In 2022, Mike Tirico will be given a platform on NBC that will make him the lead voice of NBC Sports. Not since the days of Brent Musburger at CBS or Bob Costas at NBC will a network voice be as prominent. Tirico will do Sunday night NFL play-by-play (assuming NBC assumes its NFL rights) and serve as host of anything major the network carries, The Indy 500, horse racing’s Triple Crown and the Olympics.

Tirico is now hosting a daily show on NBCSN. But his guests this week like Al Michaels, Brian Kelly and Jim Nantz wouldn’t venture a guess if and when seasons will commence or resume.
**
Bob Costas was asked by an Albany, New York sports talk show how his Syracuse basketball team will do next season. He suggested that we’re getting ahead of ourselves. He wondered on-air whether campuses will even open next fall?
**
The answers vary on whether on-air talent will take hits. One well known agent told me, “Other than a few freelance people who get paid per event, everyone has been paid in full so far and nobody has been remotely even asked to take any cuts. That might change. But no sign yet.”

The Yankees’ radio team of John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman, employees of Entercom, might be subject to a 20% cut in salary. The company, owners of New York radio station WFAN, is cutting employees’ salaries pretty much across the board.
Contracts vary. They have their own sets of guidelines. What’s likely to come under question is whether employers can invoke force majeure clauses, known as an Acts of God. Will the pandemic event qualify as force majeure? Sounds like lawyers will be busy arguing over this as it pertains to many contracts, sports and others.

Halby’s Morsels: NFL 2020 schedule; Jon Miller; Talent pay cut? Late NBA start next season? Past gems
