At the stroke of postponement

The pandemic is going to postpone games practically every week, and it must be dealt with naturally and with good will. There is no other.

At-the-stroke-of-postponement

The new normality of the Spanish leagues has not taken long to show its current face. The pandemic is going to postpone games practically every week, and it must be dealt with naturally and with good will. There is no other. The first day of the Endesa League was already forced to relocate three duels, although this time it was saved smoothly because they could be held between Sunday and Monday. There is no drag on the premiere, but there will be soon. This same week, the ACB has concentrated two days, so we have basketball without truce, at least, from yesterday to Sunday ... To continue there has already been another postponement, the fourth since the ball began to fly, Andorra- Valencia, for which a new date is being sought. This uncertain panorama is going to be a constant. The danger is that it will start to spiral out of control, especially when the Euroleague starts on October 1. The continental tournament also has a protocol that allows up to three postponements, so we'll see what sudoku the calendar turns into, a sport so friendly to queuing dates.

The puzzle does not only affect professional basketball. The first women's day also moved three crashes, of which she has already recovered two. If we change to handball, Asobal inaugurated chaos from the beginning, because it postponed the first two appointments while waiting for the protocol, which to top it off were days 1 and 3, to create a little more confusion. They are already relocated on October 7 and December 16, by the way. Thus, the championship began on matchday 2 and has been held until matchday 5. Logroño, with its isolated players, postponed their match with Valladolid on Saturday and yesterday added the next two against Bidasoa and Benidorm. The mess not only hits Spain, but also Europe, where Szeged-PSG was suspended due to the virus. The mess is huge. But there is no other.
