The Clubhouse / Re: So will there be a 2020 season?
« Last post by HalfSmokes on Today at 08:20:56 AM »
My seats are fine, but I metro to the game, I use bathrooms between innings and I like to drink beer and eat. I don’t think you can do any of those other things with social distancing.

I don’t think that the games are much fun if I just go and sit in my seat and do nothing else.

Even if you do sit still, you still have to funnel everyone through a limited number of entry and then exit points- you can’t keep adequate distance between that many people if they all have to go though a choke point- if distancing is still a thing, I don’t see the season happening

Does Tom Dempsey still have the record for the longest NFL fieldgoal ?


Matt Prater kicked a 64-yarder a few years ago. That’s now the record.

Meanwhile,  Bobby Mitchell, the Redskins' first black player, has died.

His best-known field goal came with the Saints, so that’s good enough for me to say former Saints kicker.

they probably expect some SPH will say thanks but no thanks.  But seriously, your seats are front row in one of the upper tiers.  If no one was in the row behind you, and there were a 2-3 seats gap on either side of you, would you still think no way?   I guess that's still not 6 feet, so maybe it is impossible to distance enough.  No fans, then, would seem to be the way to restart.

Tens of thousands over six months is rather different than hundreds of thousands over a much shorter period. 

Maybe this link will illustrate the numbers better:

https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden-averted/2017-2018.htm#table1

"CDC estimates that the burden of illness during the 2017–2018 season was high with an estimated 45 million people getting sick with influenza, 21 million people going to a health care provider, 810,000 hospitalizations, and 61,000 deaths from influenza."

The flu vaccine was reported as 40% effective and 25% against the H3N2 strain:
https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/season/flu-season-2017-2018.htm

I don't recall insurance policies being at risk in large gathering places even as hospitalizations and deaths elevated over the tens of thousands above the usual average occurred, even with a vaccine on the books.

Tens of thousands over six months is rather different than hundreds of thousands over a much shorter period. 

Apparently on a call today Trump said he was hoping they'd have fans in the stands by August (https://www.yahoo.com/sports/president-trumps-call-with-sports-leagues-was-wishful-in-sentiment-but-wistful-in-reality-202620506.html).  So, when a delusionally optimistic man thinks August is best-case, it's fair to say there will be no fans at any point.  The only question left is if they play the games at all.   My suspicion is not.

Nobody knows what is going to happen.  Anybody that claims they do should be muted.  We are all learning as we go.

Well that depends what agency you’ve worked for in the past, doesn’t it?

Well it’s a done deal they can’t have 40k people in a stadium before a vaccine is developed - no insurance company will allow that
