(1) How many days will each league last, from opening day? If you think the championship will be awarded, just answer "complete." If you think the season will get canceled before opening day, feel free to answer with a negative. For seasons that do start but do not finish, we'll compare them by % of scheduled games played before the shutdown.
MLB: 36 days
NFL: Complete (because lol at them actually cancelling their season)
(2) First tiebreaker. How many players from each sport will end up contracting SARS-CoV-2?
NFL: 824 (+ a bunch of fans who willingly sign waivers to watch games in person because FOOTBALL) (...and also a couple of players dead since why not)
NHL and NBA walk away relatively unscathed due to their bubbles (with the NHL thankfully away from the disaster that is the US), while the MLB becomes a casualty of flying everywhere to play their games, eventually forcing them to abandon the season. The NFL is a disaster due to the amount of players on the teams and also having to fly to each other's stadium, but refuse to let the virus stop them from finishing the season, as many of their fans keep angrily tweeting "don't let this stupid virus cancel my football!!!"
Note that this may not actually be how I see things happening and may just be what I put for some quirky predicting.
