like I’ve repeatedly said, if corona Is still around come September we’ll be in a depression worse than the 30’s.
It'll be around. Just hopefully controlled. Hopefully,lessons were learned:

Fed's five critical mistakes:

The Fed began raising the fed funds rate in the spring of 1928. It kept increasing it through a recession that started in August 1929.

When the stock market crashed, investors turned to the currency markets. At that time, the gold standard supported the value of the dollars held by the U.S.
government. Speculators began trading in their dollars for gold in September 1931. That created a run on the dollar.

The Fed raised interest rates again to preserve the dollar's value. That further restricted the availability of money for businesses. More bankruptcies followed.
The Fed did not increase the supply of money to combat deflation.

Investors withdrew all their deposits from banks. The failure of the banks created more panic. The Fed ignored the banks' plight. This situation destroyed any of consumers’ remaining confidence in financial institutions. Most people withdrew their cash and put it under their mattresses. That further decreased the money supply.

The Fed did not put enough money in circulation to get the economy going again. Instead, the Fed allowed the total supply of U.S. dollars to fall by a third.

FDR came to office and influxed millions into Federal programs (WPA) and got Social Security passed.

This is different. FDR could create jobs for jobless. If we’re shut in due to repeating virus waves people can’t work.

(unless it’s a new NFL stadium).

Build about 12 new stadiums, starting with one in San Diego. That should solve the whole unemployment crisis right there. You can also expect to have your team play the new team from Boise, the Mr. Potato Heads...

huge mega infrastructure bill for NFL stadiums. Roger Goodell is in Wash lobbying for it right now. They are simply waiting for governor approval in the states they need....Newsome is totally on board. Gotta get the Idaho Gov though....he's not keen yet but they are offering him potato farmer bailouts via super sized french fries at all stadiums.

How about free Super Bowl tickets to any worker who makes it through?

What? Free hats? And a nice sign in the Deano Draino bathroom basement?
Football is Family.

It's a matter of time (and like El Presidente, I'm going to say it's “sooner than later”) before a huge lawsuit happens against the NFL when someone contracts corona virus at a 'filled' stadium.
Perhaps the NFL, lawyers, passionate that they are, are right now amending all season and personal game tickets “policies” to include “buyer assumes all health risk upon attendance.”

I mean, would they force this risk on others if they knew what might happen?
I think not, Your Honor.

Professional sports, and NFL to a much greater effect, have been the source for igniting unity, solidarity and national pride.

NFL works hand in hand with US government to achieve important goals through overt and covert subliminal messaging.

Come September, the NFL is going to play the important role of an American institution that brings people back out of isolation and moves them forward in to a semblance of a normal life!....The term Social Distancing would've been replaced by Responsible Distancing TM , and when those Fighter Jets fly over the stadiums all across the United States at the end of the singing of the National Anthem, and the ball is kicked off to start the 2020 NFL Season, the fans will go wild with joy and support for a return to the American way of life!!!!.......

.......and then somewhere in the stands Tony from the Bronx will cough; and the whole place will go quiet!!!

Poor Tony from the Bronx.

Fell out of the top of the stadium. Tragic accident where he flew 20 feet went through reinforced glass and feel several stories to his death. That he happens to have fallen into an open flame, and burn to ashes is still a mystery.

At the same game, during the pregame events, backup quarterback Travis McFly McTravis, appeared to remove his helmet and fall coughing to his knees and remain there. With no other players anywhere around TT, he appeared to be in held there.
NFL officials said, TT was removed from the game and could well be suffering from Colinitiois
and would be “taken care of.” Goodell said he did not see the incident, had not seen seen the video, had no time to watch the stream, and he was at the time watching the Flag ceremony.
The Flag ceremony began 10 minutes after the TT kneel down. “He has a right to express himself”,
Said Roger, “in the future, he might or might not grant an interview. We currently have a Shelter Stuff Like That location.”

How about small video cameras attached to each seat, so a season ticket holder can have the option to watch the game at home from their seat's vantage point?!?

While we're at it, why not attach speakers to the cameras, so that the season ticket holder -at home- can participate in making some noise at the stadium?!?

They can probably really expand now. The Mexico City Chingones! The London Fog! The Berlin Brauhausers!

HOLDER ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES that by tendering this ticket and entering the stadium, Holder, on behalf of him/herself and, to the extent permitted by law, any accompanying minor(s), agrees to the following additional terms, conditions and waivers:
Holder assumes all risks incident to the game or related events, including the risk of lost, stolen or damaged property or personal injury of any kind and hereby waives any and all claims or potential claims arising from such risks, damage or injuries against the Chargers, Stadium, Stadium Operator, promoters, sponsors, participants, sponsors, participants, NFL and its member clubs, NFL Properties, media partners, and/or their respective affiliates, licensees, advertisers, broadcasters, or agents.

And coming, very, very soon......
I expect every printed ? Digital ticket will include a

“ Or personal injury. Also any health related illness acquired or potentially acquired is assumed
Solely by the ticket holder and bears no liability to either the NFL or its member clubs. The user of this ticket waivers all medical related rights.”

Gilly, I'm ashamed of you. The young man was simply reducing his, hopefully to soon be fixed,
inguinal hernia.
cocasts was trying to find his undescended testicle, not my fault.

I lost my virginity in a threesome. Two birds with one stone.
or more like it, maybe one stone in the hand was worth 2 in the bush.
