Asking you, since I assume you'd know the answer...

If AFA or some other school still plays, who owns the TV rights?   Does the MWC release them or do they need to call Stadium about a temporary deal?

I don’t know the answer.  Does the conference dropping sports release individual schools to pursue something on their own or do they work something that the conference has TV ties to.

One thing is that each school does have the capacity to stream the games.

The media gets that information at the same time or after the politicians do.  The politicians dictate what is open and what is not.  The media can rile up people, they don't close shit down or leave shit open.  And by now, the information is so readily available online, and so many people believe media is the devil anyway, and don't believe them, that at best, you can say media has aided in hysterics about COVID, but they aren't doing the decisions.  Don't let politicians off the hook.  Up and down the chain, they are responsible, for good or for bad.

The media decides what graphics they put up, and what they don’t. It’s deception by omission. Enough with the political agenda. Tell me this, why isn’t every single TV station in the country reporting the statistics the way that the station above does? Look at those statistics. Look at them!Look at those statistics. Look at them!

The same state that had a hundred kids contract it at camp, and suspending kids for posting a photo of jam packed school hallways?  They couldn't even take their own governors warnings.  This country is individualistic to a fault at times.

I think you’re being too kind, calling us “individualistic”. As Americans, we are arrogant,and entitled. Asking us to work together by staying home as much as possible, wear a mask in public, and social distance, is too difficult and socialistic... My Rights are being violated! 
Lets not sugarcoat this...

The services have an actual tradition.  I don't see much to put in a camp, try to schedule games, and pay for the logistics for what will likely be only a couple games that mean relatively little for the rest of us.  I wonder if UNLV/Nevada and CSU/Wyo would do a game of some sort though.  Maybe have it like a fundraiser or something?  Logistics would probably be rough, and I don't see how they would do full on tackle with nothing real at stake but pride.

‘Flag Football’?

I already said they aid in hysterics.  Stop excusing politicians.  Agenda?  GTFO with that bullshit.  I don't have a political agenda.  Unless you mean I blame all politicians.  Sad that you only blame media.

I think the threat of litigation shut the football season down. You can make players sign a waiver, but that doesn’t prevent you from being sued and losing if protocols aren’t strictly followed. The presidents didn’t want to deal with that possibility and I don’t blame them.

I'm guessing it ended up being a unanimous vote but I'm sure the pressure was coming from a number of schools. I think the California schools were not going to have a hard time doing it(Fresno hadn't even had any athletes back on campus yet) especially if the PAC shuts down, I think the state wasn't going to make it easy for them to have a season. And New Mexico was having issues with their governor(haven't been up to date if that was resolved), then with the mess at CSU and them shutting down until things cleared up it didn't leave a lot left for the conference to do in my mind. Sucks especially since WYO hasn't had a single case in the athletic department and have been doing everything right. I think we could have competed(if anyone in the country can safely) but for the conference overall it was the move they felt they had to make.

 

Edit. I want to be clear that I am not blaming any institution or institutions for the MW canceling the season its just that different schools were in different situations and some were in a better situation than other s but overall the conference had too many schools in a bad situation to play.

I didn’t say you had an agenda, why so defensive? But anyone who is hyping up this disease and creating fear and panic when none is justified, then yes I do believe they have an agenda. But they are not “aiding” in the hysterics, they are intentionally creating it.

I feel like anyone that pushed the COVID scam over the past 6 months should stfu about being angry or butthurt right about now. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR STUPIDITY

It is a big scam. It is not going away. It is not slowing down. Positive cases are skyrocketing, but deaths are not. No point in hiding. You can't hide. Your mask won't work. 

The death rate is very low. I don't think it justifies all the shutdowns. I think certain media outlets are profiting from it and using it for political gain.
