New Jersey has now joined Washington D.C. and Washington State in recommending the cancellation of all public gatherings of more than 250 people. Gov. Phil Murphy made the announcement just hours ago.
“We are in a public health emergency” he said “That’s everything from youth leagues to sports leagues, to concerts, and everything in between,”
BREAKING: Today, I am recommending the cancellation of all public gatherings of 250+ people, including parades, concerts, and sporting events.— Governor Phil Murphy (@GovMurphy) March 12, 2020
Social distancing works. This is our best chance to mitigate the chance of exposure & rapid spread of #COVID19.https://t.co/AKOFRSvkQF pic.twitter.com/uFVplz6L3y
Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, said
“Governor Murphy reported to us that he spoke directly to the leadership of several of our sports teams.”
The NY Guardians take on the undefeated Houston Roughnecks Saturday at 2 pm in MetLife Stadium. MetLife Stadium is just outside of New York City in New Jersey. With this being the third XFL city to ban large gatherings, will the XFL play in front of an empty stadium or cancel the games outright.
The NY Guardians final home game is Saturday, April 4th, at 2 pm ET against the DC Defenders.

THe XFL just needs to cancel the remainder of the season just like all the other sports leagues are doing. THe league and Vince McMahon are going to look very very bad if they are playing this weekend. I realize the league will likely have to fold if they do that but it is what it is sometimes. It’s not like this league was excelling anyways as they were down to just over a million viewers per contest after only five weeks of play.
If they don’t cancel the remainder of the season then it will pretty much have no respect at all.

lol. This is a huge over reaction. The XFL is doing just fine attendance wise and ratings wise. Plus the buzz, bc people ARE talking about the XFL. I am excited and glad that the XFL hasn’t caved to this over exaggerated virus. We can not put our life on hold out of fear of getting the flu. Granted, I realise people have died from this virus. But, over 90% of people who get coronavirus, will overcome it and be perfectly fine. More people have died in car wrecks over the last month than have died from coronavirus. So should we all stop driving too?

Why Tony? You can’t get infected thru your TV. I would love to watch some football while I’m huddling at home under my blankets, toilet paper, and bottles of water!

I don’t completely agree. In that I feel the games should continue but played in empty stadiums. The idea is to limit public attendance therefore limiting public exposure. But if it were determined that anyone on any team player or staff then yes cancel all games outright.

I think the XFL should continue as is. It’s the flu for gods sake. Drink some water, drink some OJ, get some rest. The media is ridiculous and making this way more than it should be. Make sure to get your toilet paper though! I’m going on vacation with my wife and 3 kids, we leave on 3/16 and we can’t wait and I hope the plane is empty just so I don’t have to deal with all these people.

This is so much B.S.! The government and media causing public panic. They call it a pandemic, poppy cock! The %age of people affected is microscopic. Does anyone understand that if there were one million cases in the US [Roughly 10 times the world wide #] only .003 percent of the population would be sick. .003 PERCENT!!!! How is that pandemic. Ridiculous!!! And in most case the patient gets better. Asinine alarmist!!!!
