Corona Virus - We're Doomed

They should cancel rest of games and skip straight to play offs in > 14 days now MV and Nix are isolated for 2 weeks. Each team has played different amount of games so table should be based on points per game to be fair. 

M City 37 points from 21 games = 1.761 ppg. 

NIX 36 from 20 = 1.80 ppg

Therefore we are second under a fair system. Not being bias as even doing that we are still at a disadvantage considering it is only practical to base ourselves in Au with 14 days notice and therefore play all our playoff games away. 

I don't understand all the stuff on Internet assuming points table is as is regarding play off positions if league is suspended and not take into account games played.

I also think it's fair (showing my comment above isn't bias) to cancel everything and just give both titles (plate and gf) to Sydney seeing how they are currently winning.

Until one or more players get the virus and then it's all off.

Live stream is ongoing - Here's some news


14 days Isolation for both Victory and Phoenix (FFA clear it was the Aus govt who screwed them over on this with short notice)

It would seem players aren't allowed to train together (assuming individual training is fine)

Season to be condensed into 3-4 weeks to play remaining 5-7 games (team dependent)

Rest of season behind closed doors

Leftover games for Victory and Nix will be played at the end of the season before playoffs

There's no way we are going to be finishing this season.

Wont be so long. Will be a condensed schedule. I imagine a shorter finals campaign also. 

Not sure if O'rouke is correct in saying we cant train. We are allowed to be outside so I can't imagine why introducing a football makes things different

Love how people say it wont be long, 2 weeks isolation then about 5/6 weeks finishing season then 2 weeks isolation when they get back to NZ. Sorry completely unreasonable to expect them to play under those conditions all to empty stadiums. Dosnt sound like fun to me.

Have I got this right -

How Stupid - Nix Fly out Tuesday -Cant train for 2 weeks. Play all games in Qz. SFC n MVFC games rescheduled but season to end on time.   Closed doors - TV only for FOX winfall 

  Supporter For Ever - Keep The Faith - Foundation Member - Never Lets FAX Get In The Way Of A Good Yarn

I 100% dont think its the right call. Very poor from FFA. Suspending the league surely is the right, correct and logical thing to do. absurd

I think it's more that they can't train as a team.

Typical  FFA fudge up. Fox sport should be ashamed of their role in this too. This defies logic in favour of greed. Suspend the season for two months, so simple and much safer. FFS.

They should finish the rest of the season games with a penalty shoot out's. 11m space between players, everyone get his own fresh ball from the factory.

What really worries me is we could be putting our players at risk AND it may all be for nought.

What if they fly over, self-isolate for two weeks, then the situation in Australia worsens and the A-league is called off. They'd have to come back and wait two more weeks in isolation. So basically a month on their own sitting around without being with their families and loved ones and for what?

This is the most likely scenario to play out.

Whenever I think of organisations with integrity, clarity, and wellbeing of stakeholders it's fair to say the FFA never really come front of mind... but even for them, this is a pretty poor *solution.

*Doesn't actually solve anything, but does put the players/staff of all clubs at continued risk with a larger negative impact on MVC and again on us. Not to mention any chance we had of winning the league/playoffs has diminished substantially. Eggs.

I agree with those saying that this seems like the wrong decision. Should have suspended the league and reassessed in a month's time or so.

But, as it is, if we're going to make the most of this bizarre end to the season, surely the players can't go 2 weeks without training? What is the likelihood, if any, of the Nix paying for all their players to get tested in Oz and, assuming they come back Covid-free, training together or even playing games? Appreciate of course that testing kits seem to be in short supply.
