Big news. Tonights BBL cancelled because of Covid out break.
The Telstra Dome has contacted all 11 ticket holders to inform them of the cancellation.

Maybe they are using Covid to hide the horrendous crowds.

The BBL novelty has worn off.

But people have also learned how to live without such things in the past 2 yrs, and many wont be returning for quite some time yet.

The only thing certain right now in this world is uncertainty.

I’m uncertain about the certainty of this post.

I think the angst around the BBL is about Australia still trying to come to terms with sport being a TV business now instead of a people business.

I doubt Cricket Australia or Fox or 7 care less if anyone turns up to watch live.

I get the impression it's the same with the AFL

Yep. Costs shitloads of money to let people go into stadiums n be entertained by sport. Much cheaper n easier to have them sitting at home watching on the tv.
