Trump will consult with Jerry Jones, Mark Cuban, Robert Kraft on reopening sports
President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he wants sports back and that he will consult with some famous owners along with league commissioners when discussing getting sports back during the country-wide shutdown to the coronavirus pandemic.
The president had a conference call with many commissioners two weekends ago to discuss reopening sports. He said on Tuesday that owners like Jerry Jones, Mark Cuban and Robert Kraft will also be among those with whom he consults.
“We have to get our sports back,” Trump said. “I’m tired of watching baseball games that are 14 years old. But I haven’t had too much time to watch; I’d say I watch maybe one batter and then I get back to work.”
All sports fans can agree on that.
There may be different schools of thought about when to reopen and in what manner, but there are conversations taking place daily about the subjects. And all leagues seem to have plans about possible returns to action, which will likely be without fans at least to start. Even the state of Florida has cleared pro sports leagues to continue despite the statewide shelter-in-place rule.
