Itís unlikely that a completely reliable vaccine will be available within the next 9 months (possibly longer) so are we saying no football for the next 12 months.
You could say football is only a sport and therefore not essential, however thousands of people beyond players rely on it for their income, from other staff employed by clubs, staff employed by TV companies, staff in the betting industry and companies that provide support to the football and sporting world etc etc.
There are already lots of of nonessential businesses open with more opening soon ie fashion retail. You can buy everything you need that is essential clothing wise from Tesco or Sainsburyís. So why take the risk and open other fashion retail and place those staff at risk; you can be sure that if any of those staff refuse to work they wonít be paid.
So I respect his personal decision and best wishes to him and his family but I donít see it as a reason to stop football for the next 9 -12 months. Plus if teams and players do not wish to play then I fail to see how they can expect to pick up their wages at the level they do now as some of that is funded by us as fans.
Just my opinion.
