Kelly Loeffler

There is an irony to a sports league where no one knows any of their names protesting an owner by refusing to say her name.

The NBA is banking - literally - on the growth of the international market, especially China.   The NFL is counting on Fantasy Football and gambling to keep them afloat.  The international market is not so likely to be kind to them.  MLB was huge and has an enormous network, so there is likely a lot of ruin in them before the end, but they have been hemorrhaging fans for years, and this isn't going to help. No other leagues have international audiences, do they?

College football will be interesting.  It will rebound in the South and in the Power Five conferences. As colleges are going to be hurting anyway going forward, many smaller schools will have to drop sport after sport, and football is more expensive than all others. Basketball is still mostly indoors, last I checked.
